    Andy, I gotta get my body back from Hill... That's mine on his marker. But I may have another body sent your way before too long as well.

    May go ahead and settle up with ya and worry about the other deal later though.

    DM - Shoot me a PM and remind me again what it is I need to do for you.

    Scott - Finished up the 2nd body and rail - just waiting on the next rail to get in. I need to talk with Shane about possibly doing a run of those now.

    All - I just finished up making some more CF sleeves today, so turn around should be real quick on this modification!

    Nah, the body doesn't need to be reanodized. On the ULE body you sent in, do you want the front trimmed down like the first body you sent in, or should I leave it full length?

    yeah as close as you can have them to the same would be great, so the front lip being raw doesnt really show? or cant see with a barrel on it?

    The front isn't hidden by anything, so it shows, but it such a small area that I wouldn't think it would warrant reanodizing. If it really bothered me I'd take a black sharpie to it, hah.

    I was reading your thread and I love the looks of the carbon fiber body mod. Would this be possible to perform on a SS original powerfeed body? I don't really want to dump the money on a ULE body just to it cut up.

    Looking at a SS body here, I think it should be feasible - not much different than the ULE bodies. If you've got a spare SS body, I'd be willing to give it a shot.

    It would be awsome if you could pull that off. you could drop the weight of the old bodies in half by taking off the back half. With twistlock barrels, super fun.

    mag79 - I can get bodies done in about a week max nowadays.

    I have a SS body that I currently use on my mag, so I may try a little experiment and see if the CF works out on it. If it does, I think we may be on to something.

    let me know if it is possible to do and I will send you my body. it may have to wait a few months. About to PCS from Turkey and I don't want to get it lost going back and forth in the mail.

    What's the verdict? Any luck with the Stainless body? If you still need a donor body let me know. Very interested to see the outcome.

    I haven't cut my own stainless body up, but if you want to donate one for a trial run, I'd be happy to give it a shot.

    What's the turnaround look like for this on a standard ULE body?

    I have been away for a few days. I can send you mine if you need one to work with. Like I said I am in Turkey so shipping will be about a 2 week trip each way plus whatever time you need to mill it for the mod. Send me your address and I will get it out to you unless DOVER has his on the way for the test.

    ladd - Turnaround is about a week, or less if I'm feeling extra frisky. I have plenty of tubes done up already, so it doesn't take long at all.

    Shawn - Dover offered to send his to me for the test, but honestly it doesn't matter to me who sends theirs in. However, I would say just for the sake of shipping costs and time, let Dover send his in and if it works, then I can open the flood gates to everyone who wants it done. Sound fair?

    Someone send this guy an RT body! If only for the dimensions. A ULE body with a CF back end would put so much life back into a classic RT. I keep thinking about buying an RT just for this.

    I have a question about the mod on a ULE body. What's the weight change to the body after the mod is done? I understand this mod is purely for asthetics (as many AM mods are), just wondering if there is a significant change.

    Thanks!

    -AM
