Restricted Parts Wall of Shame!

Postby Ranch Dog » 30 Jul 2016 06

Really hate to see this but a R92 454 Casull has bit the dust and is being offered as spare parts on eBay. The receiver has been cut in half to allow the sale.

It makes one wonder if someone hit a wall with spare parts like a fellow member has with this discontinued model. I've seen the same since the Single Shot was discontinued, both on eBay and Gunbroker.

I've said this is how I would handle it if something unobtainable fails on my R92 but it does make me ill to see this.

Too bad Braztech doesn't see how this hurts the brand. I wonder how much the seller will make off all of the parts? Likely more than selling a complete rifle with unavailable parts.

That's so sad could have been a great tool.

Pity it couldn't be saved.
Nothing on these guns should be unobtainium in these days of CNC manufacturing.
Heat treatment and finding the exact material might be a problem but it should be doable.

With mini CNCs able to do brick sized parts we're not far from being able to machine everything but the barrels and mag tubes and possibly full stocks (as long as there's no hurry) just about anywhere.

If they can make full up replicas of top of the line military smallarms in the middle of nowhere Pakistan without much in the way of tools and using scrap salvage metals.

Watch on youtube.com


For the last 30 years (or last century) what can you make with a multi axis computer controlled milling machine and raw material that you KNOW is the right stuff.

Even a small machine like my Sherline could do most of the action might be tight on a receiver and lever but the rest is likely doable. My machines are manual but they make already set up for CNC. The problem is getting the part(s) into G-code to drive the machine. You need someone to draw the part in something like AutoCad, then convert the drawing to G-code. And you're right for someone with the knowledge and a machine or two it would probablly be a profitable cottage industry, considering the lack of spares for Rossi rifles alone.

I had another link that apparently got tangled up and nixed I am not certain but I think it was this report from 2006 or so:

Darra Arms Market

Light Engineering in Darra

Darra Amunition manufacturing

These are around 9 or 10 minutes, 17 minutes and maybe 6 minutes.

More folks who know something about G code all the time.
A copy of Solidworks isn't too expensive for a 3D CAD package.
