So welding is out. It's been a long time since I even considered welding it. That is one reason brazing seemed so attractive. It's NOT welding, and I don't need to attend a school to learn how to do...

I'm sure it will, and in any case I have several back ups, but the beretta just doesn't quit. It takes whatever ammo I throw into it. Miles more worthy than any polymer gun I've seen.
