    Lol, yes, I think we should. At least at some point. 😁
    I like the sound of the all black parts. I know with a car, they call that "murdered out". Should look really good.

    Cool All's well that ends well

    Well IWI Firearms came through with a free of charge replacement buttstock
    Five stars to IWI Customer Service.
    They were very fast and understanding to my emails and situation.
    Quick to accept responsibility and handle the defective part.

    Also, decided to go back to the original Gunshop to install the stock.
    I've used them for years and just didn't want to go elsewhere.
    Have been very pleased with their gunsmithing services on other weapons in the past.
    I put the buttstock on the tube myself just to check fitment and functionality.
    Fits and works perfect.
    A single roll pin holds on the tube and folding mechanism to the receiver.
    My punch just isn't long enough, or I'd do it myself.
    Explained the situation to an employee at the original Gunshop.
    That it would likely take two minutes to swap the brace with the stock.
    And really doesn't require gunsmithing at all.

    He said the gunsmith was out that day.
    But he wanted to show the gun to his Armorer.
    Came back in a few minutes with the stock installed!
    Said "Hear you go!" and shook my hand
    No charge, nothing!

    Sometimes things just work out!
    Already sent an Email to the ATF updating the SBR specifications.
    Got one of those free EFORM1 SBR thingy's for braced pistols.
    And decided to put a real stock on it.
    Because, why not - LOL!

    It usually pays to be loyal to folks like that. They will typically appreciate your patronage and reward you when they can. Sounds like you're in good shape now Barth. Congrats!

    Congrats on everything working out so nice Barth. Agree with dao on his statement. Going anywhere else would have required starting the relationship all over again, and the next one might not be one you want to have a relationship with.

    Ya'll might of thought my last one was crazy...
    Introducing the copper case hardened Garisson:

    Hard to see in the pics, but some nice peacock colors in there:

    Yes, this one is a bit crazy, even for me, but wanted to try some new things! 😁 It may grow on me, but maybe not. If not, I will remove the copper and just do a case hardened look.

    Give me a little while to digest that. I'm curious how that is done but if it's a trade secret and you'd have to kill me if you told me I don't want to know that bad.

    Agree on the digesting part. The case hardened part is just Super Blue diluted with water. Rub it in circles. More in some areas, less in others. Edges get dark and the center of the rub gets the lighter blues and other colors. The copper is ZEP Root Kill, which is something like 99% Copper Sulfate. Put some of the little blue crystals into a small container (I used cough syrup shot glasses) and add a little water. Dip a q tip in and run back and forth in any pattern you want. The copper starts to lay down and you keep going until the area you want is covered, such as the little circular copper shapes I made. Hope that all makes sense.

    I'll have to mull that one over too. Like your RIA, it is unique so far. Cool thing about steel though is at any point you can pretty much strip it down and try something else. Not suggesting you should, just saying that if YOU decide you want something different, the steel frame will work with you.

    Totally agree, so
    I could not leave it alone, so tore it back down, scratched off maybe 97% of the copper and went to more of a traditional looking, faux case hardened look. Im happier with it, for now at least!
