    Turned between centers - too cheap to buy the bushings for only a couple of pens!

    Well, Larry, at least I've only been sucked in on a small scale so far!

    Thanks, Jim. I've planned only two bolt action pens so far. One is for my FIL who is a retired veteran; the other for me to keep. The second one will be done with stars and stripes acrylic. I'll give him a choice.

    Looks great from here.
    Nice combination of material and plating.

    Great job on this pen, love the colors you selected. I still haven't figured out a rifle cartridge with a bolt action in it but they are one of the most popular pens now.

    Well, Paul, I don't know enough about guns to count! I own a pump 12ga shotgun and a 357 magnum revolver that I haven't fired them in years. No matter. These kits make nice pens.
