Two-Piece Brass Shell

AK 2-piece shell:

 

Two-Piece Shell modeled on the legendary Ludwig & Ludwig shells of the 1920s.
 
 
shell gauge: 0,7mm (0.03")
soldered-back bearing edges
crimped snare beds
13mm center bead (double thickness)
 
 
The combination of the special bearing edges with the center bead that is thicker than normally, makes it possible to craft a very rigid shell out of such a thin sheet of brass!
