I've been playing around with this idea for a while now and finally got some finished. They are made from authentic Army uniform buttons. The first is a sierra that went to my dad, who served in the army in 1968-1970. The second set of carbines went to a friends two boys. They are military history buffs and were all eyes when they came over and seen me working on them. The last pic is of the variety of bolt action blanks I made while playing with the idea. I just haven't have time to turn them all. The other branches of the military will be next. All comments welcome. Thanks!
