Default Starting Majestic Kit - Any Advice?

I'm about to start my first Majestic from PSI using an Ancient Mars blank I bought from Exotic. I haven't touched anything.

Before I start, is there anything I should know about the Majestic that isn't included in the directions?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

t.

As mentioned in the other thread and this applies to all kits make sure the tubes are clear of all glues and burrs when putting together.

It takes some big drill bits, so if you haven't done one this size, take your time and start small working your way up. Less blown up blanks that way. Have fun!

When drilling don't drill all the way through. Allow in length to trim it back to where the hole is. It can easily blow out if you let the drill break through. DAMHIKT

That Ancient Mars blank is a pretty one! Good Luck!
