Here's a few in-process shots:
Three M2HB's, two are for Colonel Oberon at Nepa-Airsoft. The M1919 (and another) are shipping out this weekend. The third M2HB is mine, all mine! They're all sitting on the ShopBot after a long, HOT day in the garage cutting parts.
A trio of two's...ya know, I still have yet to build a twin setup?
The thee holes in the receiver front allow the barrel to be trued to the body: up/down, left/right. This was a fixed structure on my old designs. The new layout allows the entire barrel to come off and the receiver to be knocked back down.
With this batch, I've now made over 50 M2HB's. Although I'm probably off on the actual count, I'm going to consider the "keeper" I've made to be THE "50th Fifty". Notice the assembled barrels in the background- these are now the largest parts of the assembly, but weigh half as much as my older designs. While a real Fifty Cal weighs a bundle, these only gain a lot of weight if you add it. Finished weight of the M2HB Model Kit is about 10 lbs.
