    Introducing the Micromag 2009

    PLEASE READ EVERY WORD!!!

    First of all I want to tell all of you how much I have enjoyed this project. It has taken a while, but I have had fun chatting with everyone. We got a lot of great input and the majority of you seemed to agree with the type of design that we had wanted to build including a very streamlined appearance. As I have said before we did take one design in particular as an inspiration for the new MicroMag 2009. There were a ton of really great ideas and we had to narrow it down to one. That design was submitted by Engus, and we have decided that we are going to give Engus his body for free. So congrats to you Engus!!

    Now down to business!! PLEASE do not PM me. I do not have enough room in my PM box to support a lot of questions there. We have set up a new email address just for this project. It is micromag2009@proteamproducts.com. I would like to keep all emails for this project together. For basic questions you can just put it in this thread.

    Cost for the Body Kit is $220. For tracking purposes we will ship everything via UPS Ground or Fex Ex Ground at a cost of $10.00. For anyone that absolutely has to have USPS shipping we will work with you.

    We have decided to go with a better quality material for this body than the normal 6061 aluminum. We are using 7075 which has far superior properties – at a higher cost of course. The difference is like machining margarine in a tub (6061) versus a stick of hard butter (7075). 7075 is one of the highest strength aluminum alloys available. The grade that we will be using is as strong as most mild steels. It also anodizes with a better finish than 6061, although if you are planning on having it anodized yourself you will have to let your plater know that it is 7075.

    Because of the new design requirements we will only be able to offer a proprietary vertical/ASA design. We plan to have both a vertical ASA and a vertical gadget grip available shortly after the bodies are finished. The MicroMag 2009 images here do show the optional vertical ASA. We will be posting a few more images to highlight some of the features later as well.

    Pre-Order deposit is $100 per body, and I will keep pre-orders open for 2 to 3 weeks. We will do our best to start shipping product 4 to 6 weeks from the close of the pre-order period. For those of you who want more than one body we have decided to offer a 10% discount which will be deducted from the final payment. We accept PayPal which is ptppaypal@proteamproducts.com. We accept Visa, MC and Discover, or you can mail your deposit to us. Our mailing address is: 28 Stroudwater St, Suite 10, Westbrook, ME 04092. If using mail please let me know so I can watch for it and mark it on my list as coming via mail. Make sure you include your name and address along with your user name from the forums. We are available by phone at (207) 797-8200 from 10am to 5pm EST, Monday – Thursday. I check and answer email 7 days a week.

    As for anodizing, we will offer dust/satin black, raw (which will need to come back to us for assembly) and we were thinking of possibly offering ONE other color… We have enough time to decide on that maybe you guys can come up some consensus on that (maybe someone wants to start a poll??). We are working with our anodizer to look at some other options that we are happy with.

    Just a reminder, we will be basing the number of bodies that we build on what we receive for pre-order deposits. There may be a few available from an over-build, but nothing that we can count on.

    Parts pricing
    Extra breech $60
    Extra fronts $50
    Vert ASA $20 raw $25 ano
    Gadget grip $20 raw $25 ano
    Strip and ano your 45 frame $35
    Strip and ano your frame and battery pack $55
    If you want your ASA double tapped $5
    10" Pro-Series Armson Barrel raw or dust black $30
    10" Pro-Series Armson Barrel gloss black or gloss gun metal grey $40
    Shorten sear pin $15

    Anyone wanting 45 frames for their body... I have 20 single trigger and 6 Double trigger frames available for $50 single or $55 double whether it is anoed or not. comes with safety, trigger assembly. For anyone wanting raw frames I Have 10 single and 3 double that are raw polished.



    Ano and pay list.....Edit, 09.12.10 1:00PM. CDT

    taking one!

    Absolutely friggin beautiful, can't wait! I LOVE that breach design too. My deposit will be on the way this week. And on a side note, I'm glad you went up to the higher grade aluminum.

    I've already mentally assembled it, and I'm thinking my wife will kill if she sees the final bill this project is gonna set me back!

    WOOT! That's a pair of dimes shifting!

    Is there enough meat in the front barrel receiver piece to support tapping in 2 rail mounting holes?

    If so, you could slap a chunk of weaver rail there and attach a longbow mod

    !!!!!!!!!!!!




    thank you tracy and ptp, this just made my years (08 and 09). This is like a dream come true, especially since i was worried I wouldnt even be able to buy one, let alone get a freebie.

    what a surprise because I totally forgot about that body design. and the breech

    Congratz to Engus for having the winning design .

    I had to blend a few thing differently and add the rotating breach and front block section but it was based off of his body design ~ ~

    Down payment sent. Great design guys (Engus ) This is really going to be one of those, "what the heck is that" kind of thing when we take it to the fields. I can't wait to get this in my hands. Now that my nerves have been calmed slightly by seeing the design, they're just going to get worse until I actually get to hold this! Can't we just make the pre-order a day or so Tracy and get on to the manufacturing?

    usable with emag lowers? i would love to know, i have a set of lowers that are just dieing to be attached to this thing. and the rail is built in correct? so i would not need my shadow rail

    also... any chance that this can be used with a nearchos ACE board? i just bought one and would hate to have to sell it.

    Please let me know these things. i am dieing to know!

    so the body will fit the lowers but the ACE wont work that makes me sad

    any way of having nearchos create a tube that can sit over the eye and between the breech and the gap in the body/rail area that would allow for usage?

    then you would just need to drill a hole for the eye... only problem is that there would need to be multiple holes for the different feed methods

    I'm cool with just satin (or gloss) black, but I'm surprised no one said either nickel, or dust clear for that "stormtrooper" look...

    I would throw in my vote for some kind of splash for the "other color" as well. You guys were some of the first to offer wild anno, and it would be really fun to have a MM09 anno pattern.

    ya, splash was the old days... this is the new era of streamlined bodies with nice milling and nice ano jobs. Acidwash is basically the new splash... lets see a alime green and black acidwash!!!! WOOOOOO IM SO EXCITED

    Forest says on the splash ano -- one concern is that since this is the first we are building these we may have issues with tolerences after polishing (we learned this the hard way with the micro and we had plenty of extra bodies that we could just dump in the trash - well not really...)

    may i ask why you decided to go with what looks like a dovetail rail instead of a picatinny? Considering that speedballers have no use for an optic (granted, neither do the woodsballers in reality), the only people who would want a rail at all are woodsballers. Woodsballers that use optics have amost unanimously switched from dovetail to picatinny thanks to the "milsim" craze. I understand that this is not a milsim marker, however, taking the time to mill a rail that will never get used seems wasteful.

    Please disregard if I'm seeing things wrong and you've used a weaver rail there... or if you just feel like disregarding me. (that's ok too)

    Just a thought.

    Excellent design though. I'm glad to see someone else go back to the seperate breech idea.
