whipped these up out of aluminum. Not a big fan of the front sight (pin). Will try for a blade at some point but works for now.

Nice work,v30. So many things you can make for the 2240. I recently made a brass bolt handle out of a spent .303 British casing. It was a fun project.

A joke? Hmm no, but fun time for sure :wink: . Nice work v30! An assorted barrel band would be nice, huh?
