Makes me wonder why they didn't try to make something different from what traditional manufacturers have set as the standard. Would be interesting to say the least if someone finally proves the concept of that 4-stroke sleeve-valve opposed-piston Pinnacle Engines design.

In the Eastern region along the coast, local people have centuries of gunsmithing experience. All of the work done in small shops. A friend of mine in Ghana tells me that for certain rifles that they build they pick out from junk yards steering tubes from old cars.
I've already seen homemade guns using umbrella tubes at a museum.
