    So my friend has a 3D printer. I gave him the dimensions and had him print some of these for me. Thought it would be handy for 2-3/4” forearms on 2-9/16” guns. Also should work well to set the barrel back on forearms that have been abused. I had him make them thick so I can grind/file to fit.

    That is a wonderful idea. Do you know what kind of material is made of? Can it be glued?

    I’ll ask him what filament he used while we are ice fishing tomorrow. It is a pretty hard material. I think a little CA glue would hold it in place

    Can you get a polished look finish. We could reproduce the first years auto-5 rubber buttplate. Would that not be extraordinary? I believe we can use the program Fusion 360 to achieve that. You should ask your fishing friend. BTW what can of fish?

    I just texted him and he used ABS filament. With the printer he uses he can’t get a polished look. If a guy found a hard rubber you could use a CNC router to make them.

    We are going after yellow perch and walleye

    You got plans to sell any of these? Wouldn’t mind giving it a run on one of my beat up forearms for my 2 9/16 chamber 16

    If my buddy is willing to print some more I’ll send you a couple.

    That would be great. Let me know how much. This 1909 is giving me hell. Gonna call and talk to brad Monday about it. If they will still do the old rust blue I’m just gonna send it off and wait for the bill

    Ranger,

    I would be very cautious about receiving a rust blue from Arts on an Auto 5. I will not speak ill of them because they have done some nice work for me. But, IMO their A5 rust blue leaves something to be desired at this time. And I can only hope they are continuously improving their method to reproduce that Belgian rust blueing
