Lasercut Bolt Pistol Prototype

I have almost completed my first production level project. This will hopefully be the first in a long line of kits. This one is planned for a mix of 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch materials. The final delivery will be a flat pack kit of the main body, sights and magazine. The barrel and grip will need to be sourced separately. I may offer a resin cast grip at some point but I am not ready for that yet. 

The prototype is a mix of cardboard and cloroplast. Both work well for prototyping because they are easy to cut and cheap. They are slightly thinner than the 0.25 inch material the design is for but it doesn't really effect the testing too much. 

Now to hit the hardware store for some 0.25 MDF and acrylic.
