This kit begins with real, brand new 30-06 caliber rifle cartridge components. A .308 caliber copper-jacketed bullet has been drilled out to accept a cross-style refill. A brass case is drilled and fitted with a soldered-in 7mm brass tube. The components are assembled to the dimensions of real, live ammunition. The completed cartridge has been powder-coated in gloss clear for maximum durability and protection from tarnish. A 7mm twist transmission is installed.
The kit also includes a cross-style refill, a 7mm brass tube for the pen upper barrel, clip, and finial. All you need to do is turn the upper barrel from the blank of your choice, and assemble it.
The slimline finial is smaller in diameter and has a flat end.
The euro finial is larger in diameter had has a rounded end. It yields an upper barrel that is less tapered than the slimline version.
