    Still hoping to get your help on the manual when we get more parts made to do the detail pictures like on the type II.

    Best regards,

    Hey Rick, I know this process would also require outside help but what about the same process HK/ SIG use to make some of their slides and frames. The exact name escapes me but it's powdered metal and medium that melts away during the baking process??? Very pleased you're making progress and awaiting my offer email to purchase one...

    I will definitely do the manual again. Id also love to do the fonts and stamps again. I thought they turned out great and the serial numbers looked authentic on your current FG42. I can take a scan of my original type 1 FG42 stamp and serial numbers stamps so we can make a set of accurate dies again if you like.

    Thank you. It was sort of a labor of love trying to make manual look like the original. Im excited to help out with the new type 1 and hopefully make it even cooler.
