    Antique Brass

    30 Cal Bolt Action dressed up in a Nylon Braid barrel.
    The Nylon Braid color makes a nice contrast with the Antique brass.
    The Nylon Braid is anchored to a black tubes using Thin CA.
    There is no finish on the nylon braid giving the barrel a nice textured feel


    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    I really like this combination, Les. The tactile feel of the braid is a nice touch

    Beautiful work, Les! The braid looks great and I bet it feels good, too!!!

    btw...I received my first two bolt-action kits today - will see if I can get one good pen out of them!

    Ah, come on, Bill. Go 2 for 2!

    BTW, Les, nice pen.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?
