got to thinking and reworked the fore grip mount. now the mount itself will attache to the receiver and the barrel. this will give more structural rigidness and be more realistic. and the fore grip will still slide on and off.

I seem to remembers the slang term was a 'Chicago Piano'; this is excellent; looking forward to the finished product.

I have heard both slangs used over the years.

so something was bothering me all night. something just didnt feel right. and the scaling of some things were off. so i went back and rescaled some stuff. the bottom of the 2 in the double s image is the corrected one.

Oooooh, I'm salivating now. It's beautiful! I see a few places where this could be problematic to reproduce in card and it may need some internal support here and there, but I leave it safely in the hands of a Master. Don't rush it too much though Trent. My tingly fingers are nowhere near ready for this yet. I had a go at your Lemat pistol, but soon had to abort. I just cannot grip the tools properly.
