Blog fan Oddjob recently sent me some commentary inquiring about the status my U.N.C.L.E. Special project.

While progress has been slow since the discovery of insignificant set-screws in the carbine handgurd during "The Back To The Drawing Board Affair," my local gunsmith thinks he's come up with a way of anchoring the handguard by silver-soldering a lug to the top of the barrel. The plan is to take the new handguard and mill a corresponding slot in its underside. Besides the incorporation of a lug, bedding compound will also be used to bind the new handguard the barrel. Currently Joe Hayes is machining a replacement handguard for me. Once received, I'll have it anodized and give it to my gunsmith to install after he refinishes the pistol matte-blue.

Then it's off to the range for another attempt at an Acid Test.

Apologies to any George Lazenby fans out there expecting the actor to make another cameo in this version of "Return of Man from U.N.C.L.E."

Well OK, maybe he did.
