No.
No,that bracket isn´t up to my usual standards it´s just that as i got the thing on there i discovered that the bracket was to long and thus cut it down and welded it together again.
Rest assured though,i´ll make that weld disappear too.. No worries. As will i the two M3 nuts underneath the actual diopter. In summary it´s in other words thus far only "in the raw".

That said. I need to fab a new iris disc. The one on there is simply to small to my liking so i´ll turn a fresh one way larger on the lathe.

Bracket is made so that NO new holes or similar has been drilled but instead i reused a couple of screws for the receiver assy. This brought that the U formed bracket could wiggle back n forth why i added a small M3 screw to make the whole thing come to a steady.

The part of the bracket running for the diopter is made out of a piece of L shaped 2mm steel (U part is 3mm with countersunk screw holes) and this as..as i cut the one side down and left "remains" it steadies the piece of steel hundredfold.

So first up here will be turning a new iris disc and then go try the setup out. Still need to fab the bracket for the front tunnel,but that´s a no-brainer to be honest.

Diopter bracket is way sturdy,that much can be said for now at least. It´s on there you won´t believe...

I really need to fix my TIG welder.
This MIG deal just gets clumsy as hell to no good.

Anyways. The barrel clamp of the front tunnel was of course to small,so i turned a new one on the lathe and the proceeded by cutting the tunnel and bolting brackets off the original and the weld it all to the new clamp.
Although this of course,due to using a MIG,needs to be tidied up a whole lot..it´s at least all there and above all at right angles and what not.

For lack of a mold for this rifle still i´ve ordered a minor amount of them "wrong" Minie bullets to at least be able to try this diopter deal out.

As is i´d say it at least feels on the money. As for the truth of that..remains to be seen guys.

Here Eric with his Norweigan kammerlader. 69 caliber in contrast to mine, which is 63.

I was hoping he would shoot it.

Finally got around to turning a jag for this thing.
Not exactly commonly available in 63 cal.

What´s more i got the diopter setup cleaned up,considerably. Got 100 slugs for it here in front of me,time to make this thing emit some smoke.
