    Default Burnside carbine build

    Still working on the drawings.

    Have most of them finished, doing custom screws now. Need those for the existing holes in the receiver which are oddball threads, close to SAE but a tad looser.


    Also researching casting as I'm thinking of casting the lever parts, trigger and breech block parts from silicon bronze. Should be plenty strong since this is a black powder gun.
    Probably try lost wax investment casting as I've done lost foam aluminum casting in the past.

    Have some magnesium bronze scrap bars for the castings. Thinking of having one of the art casting places in the area do the actual casting with my raw materials and patterns.
    Probably easier than making a casting setup (and cheaper).
