I'm just hoping you wait until TB4 or something to debut it...
But if this is the beginning, there are good things ahead.
Well, all I can say is that I'm a little peeved at the complete lack of notice that these were coming out today, but I'll live. Any idea when the next run will be Magnus?
You're kidding?Originally Posted by Tunaman
I am not complaining, since I had my chance to buy one, but it seemed like there were only 5 or so that were actually available to the public. The rest seemed to go to people behind the scenes. I could be very wrong, but I was maybe the 3rd or 4th to post here, and at that time there were only 2 left. I thought that there was going to be a bigger run of these, and they were going to be a more reasonable price (Considering that the GForce frame came with internals and was only $200). If there is another run at a lower price, I would definitely be down for it, as I am sure there would be 15-20 more, easily.Originally Posted by Magnus
I'm sure there was more then just 5 or so. Not everyone posted here then PM'ed Tuna for a spot.
Ive held both a gforce & the magnus the fit & finish for the magnus far surpass's that of the gforce. Ive held them side by side. The magnus has nice rounded edges gforce has sharp corner edges. The magnus is milled internally to allow extra room for mounting. I guess it would also save weight. That milling means more machine time. Machine time around here runs around $80-100 a hour. The magnus is highly polished & really glossy ano. The gforce was not.Originally Posted by Stayhuge
Im not trying to put the gfroce frame down in anyway. But to hit the price of 200 with internals there had to be some compromises. Its still a very cool frame.
I aslo would assume not everyone took the time to post here first.
well since you think the gforce frame is a good comparison then you can buy mine!Originally Posted by Stayhuge
lol.. guess i blinked a few too many times to miss out this frame... maybe there will be one lurking about for me.. gratz to those who managed to obtain this nice little gem. Maybe there will be another round for me to attempt to not miss. Cheers to the season.

Once I get a rough idea of how many people are interested Tuna and I will go from there.
If anyone knows where we can find more of those WDP grips and they don't cost $25 a set please PM me. Ideally, I would like to have both the rubber and aluminum grips available
Thanks to everyone!!
Maybe offering without grips, since they run $25 a set might be better. You can then drop the price a little. I for one, Have a few sets of grips that I like to use. I'll shoot you an email. Thanks Magnus
Also, I'm not knocking the frame. Price was just a little high. Probably the combo of the first run and the grips running $25 alone. knock $25 off and you're at $215. More resonable. Personally, I was set to pay up to $200, with out the internals. That was my budget. Maybe the next batch will work for me. Can't wait to see some pics from you guys that got one!!
Tuna just shipped mine.. I'll be putting a set of grips in BST soon I guessOriginally Posted by Stayhuge
You can all live vicariously through me, I'll do a full scale unboxing!
OMFG!Originally Posted by going_home
Look at the Pot talking to the Kettle here. A little hypocritical or what!
From what I remember, you were selling a much Less "RARE" Logic UMF that only has the Intelli switch mount (not all types of mounting options) second hand for more than than the price of a "NEW" Magnus Emancipator-90 with grips set screws and a working safety.
Not to worry, to date you still have the highest priced Mechanical Mag frame ever posted for sale.
Nice, Yea, Ijust got confirmation that my trigger shipped. I am very excited. Can't wait. The Sabre is the trigger that I have been waiting for for a long time. I love that type of blade style. Woo, WOOOriginally Posted by Shirow
Link???Originally Posted by SecondRate
I picked the Talon, hope I made the right choice.. I like my viperblade and it looked similar.Originally Posted by Stayhuge
Yea, that looks very similar to the viperblade. I think it is more a matter of personal preference.Originally Posted by Shirow
It was on eBay probably over 2 years ago.Originally Posted by Stayhuge
I am sure he remembers, a long with a few others.
IIRC it caused matteusz to do a run!

Do one on each side! Mix it up!
Welcome to AO.Originally Posted by SecondRate
The frame was listed in an auction. If it was too high it would not have sold. Supply and demand determine pricing. Same reason that SFL Emags are getting over 3grand
i remember reading that there was going to be a order thread in the dealers forums when these came out kind of sucks that it was just a small post to email tuna, and with only a run of so little after all the people chimed in on the thread wanting this well guess i'm back to looking for a logic frame 90 frame again
LOL I agree. And I'll gladly buy the other set from youOriginally Posted by Shirow
i remember about that too but i dont think it was ever, magnus or tuna that said itOriginally Posted by PBChappy
i could be wrong though
Ahh yes, how have you been my love!Originally Posted by MANN
I knew you would have something to say to me. . . .it has been a while.
Umm. . .No welcomes necessary, been here almost as long as you, just not nearly the post whore. I don't post to see myself in print like some people
Glad to see you are still stalking me! It feels so nice to be loved!
not stalking. I just smelt BS, opened the thread, and BAM you were posting.Originally Posted by SecondRate
Oh and BTW it doesn't make my post to going_home any less true. It was a second hand frame that sold for more than a new Magnus frame.Originally Posted by MANN
I guess the demand for a really new frame with lots of option was really high, since they all sold out in a matter of an minutes..
No regurgitated crap there!
Props to Magnus for coming through and without a preorder or deposit. . . w00t!
