Blue_Baron's Custom Resurrection

Hey everybody, I thought I'd share the results of my winter project. I love how my Resurrection shoots, but I was never a huge fan of how it looked. To me, the muzzle-break style milling on the lower tube didn't match the smoother cuts on the top. Plus I didn't like the back cut on the top tube- to me it looks like the design team gave up before it was really complete. And so began a DIY project.

The main work revolved around reshaping the upper tube to give it more of a fang look, while keeping the slot for the midblock sled intact to ensure stable cycling. I also removed excess weight from the grip frame (saved approx 10% of the original mass), milled off the oval cutouts on each side of the lower tube on the body, and rounded off the edges to give the body a more fluid appearance.









Here's a mock-up of what the finished product will look like:



As always, I welcome everybody's feedback.

looks 100 times better than stock. Awesome work. Im curious what kinds of tools you used to do this? The only think i think you could improve on is the back half of the grip frame. i think it would look better flat instead of rounded.

Thanks, and I agree on the grip frame. My original plan was to make it flat but with the counter-sunk hole for the rear grip frame screw kinda screwed it up for me.

As for tools, I used a mill to remove the lower tube cutouts but the rest was done with Dremel, hand files and sandpaper.

Thanks! And yes, the accents will be the stock gloss black. Hence why I did the on/off slide on the POPS in gloss black to match
