    Hello everyone and Happy New Year to all at the RPF!

    I have a resolution for the new year and that is to finish my pulse rifle by march of this year.
    Many things left to do on it. Right now Im Making the Barrel vent from scratch. I found measurements on the Aliens Legacy site. Im working on a ten hole vent. I first cut 16 gauge steel and bent it with a bending brake. Its supposed to be 40 mm wide I somehow made it 50mm wide. To reslove this I split it down the middle lengthwise. This removed about 1/8 of an inch and was now the correct width. I then cut the basic shape of the vent out then cut the area that has the vent slots out.
    Im making this in two parts the pics will explain it better. Enjoy
