Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi guys.

I seem to recall we used 1ball 1tracer. On the Coax but not 100% if we used the same for the commanders GPMG. Can anyone confirm at all ? Most likely the same as why carry 2 different types ?

All good fun

Phil your continue to amaze me and thank you for sharing as usual 👍👍.

I'm going to replace mine with M2.5 CSK HT bolts and 3D print the bevelled square covers for them.

Adrian.
Adrian you are a genius now that is a good solution i like it - I'm just waiting for my first 3D printer to arrive as well so that will all work well

Thanks so much for sharing. :D
