Just another E-11 build

Recommended Posts

This build is still alive!!!

 

I acquired a genuine Hengstler Counter 400 from Dennis aka @TK-50101 Blue Snaggletooth and it is absolutely gorgeous! So much so I contemplated for a really long time before deciding to paint it.

I used toothpaste to create the chipped paint effect and scuffed it up with steelwool. Again I left the cadmium coating intact since I really like that feature.

Set the counter to my 501st Legion number.

Since my last post, I've been adding genuine parts to my E-11 and I thought I share the progress here.

 

Scored a M38 scope in Australia!

If possible, I would recommend to rotate the trigger group retaining pin from position FREE to LOCK. The FREE position was used for disassembling this group.
