    I'm thinking about it. I dont have a 4 axis milling center so i would have to farm the body out to another machine shop. it depends on if there is an interest i guess.

    I'd buy one, assuming they were reasonable priced.

    Is the body actually 2 pieces so that color scheme is possible? Because that would be a helluva expensive anodizing job.

    Try giving Xmagterror a pm. He might be looking for the next run of bodies to make. He's the guy who did the ripper and phoenix bodies.

    the program i used is solidworks '08. the design is solid alum. I used 2 colors to define the depth. It would look cool this way but as stated it would be expensive to get anno'd.If anyone wants to attempt to make this I can forward the solid file and if needed generate the cnc program. i also have a solid of the grip frame and a program for that.My shop is just way to busy to dedicate a machine to this right now.

    If nothing else, keep the design handy for when you're not busy. We're used to waiting a long time for custom stuff.

    It's definitely a cool looking body, I think it could be a seller.
    For the right price it'll sell like hot cakes.
