that would make a pretty awesome display. Might just have to start looking for a wore out model 8 or 81 to do that too.

I guess it would be good to get some practice. In some parts of the world, cutaways are very popular because they are the only guns any lowly civilian peon can legally own.

Having made up a number of cutaways of the Beretta M9 pistol for training use, I know it is not easy to make them look good, and one must know his way around a milling machine. I used a Beretta factory cutaway as a model, and I also prepared complete drawings for others to follow. I have some pictures of my efforts I could post, but I will have to find them.

Dewalt, I'd like to see it and the details of what we are looking at and how it operates if you have them. Very cool.
