Hi folks, I'm new here. I'm new here to this forum and already have learned a lot. So, many thanks for the mods to accept me on board. Just a brief introduction of myself. I am a journeyman millwright, a mechanical engineering technologist, and a level 3 vibration analyst. But most and foremost, I am am also an accredited gunsmith with honors. My father was a master gunsmith with FN in Herstal Belgium. He is the man from whom I've learned my gunsmithing skills from. I may have a lot of questions from you folks in the future, but most and foremost, I will be happy to help out in anyway possible. I look forward to helping like minded individuals and learning from some of you folks. :)

Welcome aboard HRgx. :)

I'm just a tinkerer, former engineer who likes building my own competition pistols. Mentored under a very good pistolsmith, and was offered a job by a nationally known pistolsmith, but I've always believed that the fastest way to ruin a good hobby is to turn it into a job. ;)

Looking forward to seeing some of your work!
