This is one of 50 identical pens that I made for a gun club. The shell is a 30-30 spent cartridge and the top is turned from water buffalo horn. I now have to made 50 pens from 30 caliber spent machine gun cartridges.
I use brasso to polish up the cartridges and then apply a coat ultra-shine.

Great job on the pen. Is this a kit or did you use actual spent cartriges?

Keep it up and good luck on the next 50.
