Hope the aluminum works out better for you!
I dunno, Noeland the whole Deckard's blaster ship has long since sailed. This is totally my PKD at this point. I wrestled with that stupid chunk of metal through more than a few self-actualizations. It'll always have a beadblasted-esque finish from the vice grip gouges. The silly things seem to infuse a part of yourself through creation (yeah, freakin' thing got in my head bad). I may crank out a perfect aluminum guard in a day and toss the other one but it'll be hard,
For the second trigger I'm weighing options for functionality. Now I always imagined the Steyer receiver as being a bolt-action launcher similar to the new BSG. I don't see anything like that possible but they do have lasers that can burst balloons from across the room. Totally doable with a 5.7v battery and a recharge port either in the fifth LED or the grip frame dimple. There are flashlights (meh), laser sights (useless)... any ideas?
