    Very fine. I had to look a couple times at the first pic. The lighting played tricks with it. Brass looks transparent.

    That is so cool!!
    Are they difficult to make? I have a few RPK rounds that he gave me. I'd like to make one for my son before his next deployment.

    Bob,

    My new manager came to work for the large corporation who employees me. A Westpoint graduate, one year later he got recalled. I turned two pens based on a recommendation of a Navy Seal. I used some desert camo looking solid surface counter material I got from a local cabinet shop. I turned two straight-lined simple slimline pens. It is the only size that will fit into the shoulder pen pockets on the coveralls they wear. Those two pens were deployed into the Middle East for 14 months. He said he left them in camp when out on missions.

    I used black titanium hardware so it wouldn't have a gleam and provide a target.

    Something to consider.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    I get most of my pen supplies here:

    I am sure some of the US suppliers have them as well.

    Thanks Les. I dont have a chuck for my lathe yet so I need to put that on my short list of gotta have tools

    They look fun to make, but a bit complicated. My shop will look like a firing range with all the spent brass from screw ups
