Re: A Cracker Built GF18

How are you filling the screw holes?? Drill/refill or just fill before you go to the next section of rail?

When is the last time you have tried to tie two teenagers down to get anything from them without a large cash prize in the offing. When I get them tied down, I will send pics, shortly I hope :oops:
