of course i'm going to try shooting it! if I wanted a trophy for my shelf i could have cut corners a lot of places, and it would still look like a functioning marker.
I'm not too worried about the structural integrity of the body, i'm more worred that the epoxy joints will hold air tight, but rest assured that i'll at minimum be wareing safety glasses when I put air on it for the fitst time.
BTW I gota chance to work on it a bit more over the weekend. I got all the frame and noid maniold mounting blocks in place, so all I need now is the VA mounting block and i'm ready to start foaming it all.
BlackHammer, I'm not sure of the weight right now, but if you look back a ferw pages I posted some weights of the bodies pre air passage tubes. I'll be posting a wieght comparison once the body is finished.
