    Hand built HiPoint "Mansfield Madness"

    Some will say this is a waste of time, I'll agree. But I'll never have the nicest 1911, I may have the nicest glock40 by the time i finish this c9 tho. Still like putting a geo metro on the block at barrett jackson lol. i have never gone this deep in a handgun, will be fun to learn on. Hoping to work myself into 1911s and czs over the next 2 years. Look out Allenm and praff lolol

    All hand tool build, files and sandpaper mostly. I'll break out the dremel once i get to the small bits. All of my metal working tools are in my tool box at work so I'm using files i found in the garbage of my grandpas estate.

    Started as a 32 dollar property room auction pistol





    Tore it down and im probably going way too far...

    Stripper at work.


    Was clearly used as a hammer



    This casting is rough... my hands are definitely going to hurt



    Deep roll marks and tool marks. Trying to preserve the roll marks while getting a flat side by leveling and filing out the tool marks



    Checking fit and how it actually works



    Last for today. Need to clean the bevels and smooth out the debur on the bottom edge of the slide. Still some tool marks in the logo, real pita getting down through them.

    I see you are a man of taste as well. I have my own HiPoint project I'm getting ready to start and I'm excited to follow your progress.

    It doesnít seem like a waste of time to me. Itís better to practice on something you didnít pay much for instead of something more costly. I bought some crappy Walmart knives to practice sharpening. I screwed up a couple and was only out $6.

    Not much time tonight. I went to work on the fsp. I ended up cutting the cancer out and reprofiling. Heighht is unchanged so it should be fine. I will probably drill a hole and add a dot to the face.



    I also trued and deburred all of the stamped internals.

    On one hand, pretty sure it's a parody.

    On the other, if you REALLY want one, I'm sure they could make a second for ya.
