Based on the slope of the breech block, i would say the 2001 LCD was the base marker.

As for the milling. Good luck.

Gotta go with you on that one, LOL. I'd gone with CP detents myself.

More accurately, from my understanding, it, singular, was made in Germany. Custom milled 1-off gun. Depending on whose rumor mill you trust, it was done with a manual mill, or it was done entirely by hand and took 1 gajillion man-hours to finish. I sincerely doubt both of those claims. A lot of those fine details have been lost to the mythos over the years. But yeah, it has come to be known as the Nymph.

As a former machinist I'm almost sure that this can be done on a 3 or 4 axis mill, right Doc??????

Yeah, I'm sure it could. What I doubt is that it was done on a manual, let alone by hand. The symmetry and finish look too perfect. I'm sure it was probably just a custom CNC job.

Man if only I could get my hands on the CNC program that'd get me 3/4 of the way there and save me a hella lot of benjamins.

After this many years I'd be shocked if it were still around. Besides, who wants to knock off somebody else's custom creation? Do something uniquely yours.

If you remove the "internal tube" look, it looks alot like the old "glued" spanky fishbones. I wonder if you couldnt just mill straight through and then glue in an internal tube.

Hmm, i may have just found a use for that spare body i ended up with.

You could sleeve it. It would be pretty damn easy with a machine shop.

All I gotta say it Thank you Triggernomics for all the help and men you made some mean Autocockers back in the day, seeing all the custom gats you made just makes me want to get going on my Angel Project. You still the man!!!!

Well wait a minute now, that thing finally rang some bells. I saw that gun when it was in the early stages of making. The slots in the breech and in the front/ barrel area weren't in there yet, but the back was all there. That was in 2003 I believe.
Yes it is hand carved, and yes it was made in Germany. I don't know how long it took, but I could say it would take me around 100-150 hours to do.
I believe the guy's name was Thomas, playing for a semi-pro team near Karlsruhe. When I told him that I liked to carve guns too he didn't really seem to be really interested in talking shop, so we left it at that. Never saw him again.
Sorry I didn't catch that right off DB, but I'm glad I could at least still let you know. Good luck on your project!
