    New slabs for SAR5

    I made a new set of slabs for my SAR5 this morning. I used Green Canvas Micarta, my favorite handle material and color. The slabs are each 1/4" thick and do a nice job of making the handle more managable for my hand. I sanded the Micarta with progressively finer sandpaper, then buffed it to bring out the depth of color. Not too slippery when wet either.

    That looks fantastic... it reminds me of the micarta Randall uses. Great job.

    How did you flare the tubes to reattach the handles?

    Very nice work. How thick were the original G10 scales?

    Nice job on the handles and tube flairing. The tubes have a nice even lip to them, what method did you use?

    That looks really good. The tube flaring looks exceptionally symmetrical. Great Job!

    AMAZING! Super professional looking. Keep up that work and you can quit your day job and start customizing for your hog friends.

    I am with many others above, the micarta and workmanship is VERY nice. Great work! Top shelf and all that!

    .... Personally, I would have thought that to be the ideal time to reduce the handle size.

    But, I am particularly impressed with your flaired tubes and very interested in a "detailed" tutorial with your technique including "PICTURES" and info about the type of tubing and where you purchased your tubing....... Please!

    Really nice work. I would also like to know how you did the tube flare...the tubes look great!
