    Conrad Customs is a collective group of Designers, Engineers and Machinists that have taken an interest in designing, machining, and distributing Automag parts. A few of our founding members prefer to keep their anonymity but have been around AO for quite some time, and others will eventually make themselves known. Right now we are in the distributing and designing phases for hardware, and have enlisted a few old school guys with tons of experience to help us jump start this endeavor. Our goal is to create both independent designs as well as collaborations.

    Our goal is to become a hub for new and unique Mag parts, both in house as well as in collaboration with other prominent AO members.

    I wasn't requesting new parts to be made. I was kindly asking to check if you find any of those things when stuff comes In.

    I dont particularly care who the group consists of. If they want to remain anonymous that is their right. Its finally nice to see something new potentially come to the Automag community. As long as it doesnt involve pre-orders that go sideways, I'm interested in seeing where this goes.
    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Currently we will be limiting our scope to machining our own parts. We will definitely let you know if that changes, Luke!

    Wow, Android's Chrome browser sucks for editing posts. Went to edit and clarify a response to KNM and it must have deleted my post...

    Luckily the back function still worked, so we copied and pasted our intro into the first post, explaining who Conrad Customs is.

    KNM: Our response to yours and FF33GFD's requests seemed a bit misleading. We fully intend to make new products, but the focus will be a "newer is better" thought process. Right now, we are not expecting to produce any more RPG products. We are indeed investigating the option of RPG remakes, just not high on our priority list.

    Really wish there was an "undo delete" button. Lesson learned!

    I must confess, I'm not really excited about this. At least not as much as I should be. It's good to have more options, I suppose, but to a budget-conscious player like me, I probably won't buy anything you sell because it's going to be too expensive. (Why do I think it's going to be expensive? Well, you just bought up Rogue's old stock, and you're now asking more for it that he was last year. So.......yeah. Explain that to me.)

    It's not just you, by the way. This is the biggest problem with most of the new stuff that comes out for mags. (Except KnowNothingMags. His stuff is awesome.) It all looks great, but it costs too much to take off. And the poorer mag players are constantly caught in this dilemma. They would love to have all the upgrades like a double-trigger or a body that takes AC barrels, but those parts are getting harder and harder to find, and the prices are going up and up. So they stick to classic stuff. (Not that there's anything wrong with classic stuff.)

    I think there's a lot to be learned from Mozak's new AC slider frame. Here's a piece that's simple, functional, and affordable. They're gonna sell out in a week when he finally gets them done. So why not do the same thing, but with Automag parts?

    Here's my wish list:
    1. A new, simpler Pariah body. Forget the little tongue that sticks out the front. Just make a short ULE body with a flat front and no extra material that you don't need. No other fancy milling that takes more time and costs more money. Single AC detent. Angel threads for the feedneck. And no feedneck. Not unless it clamps, anyway. And figure out a way to make it for less than $100. You'll sell a thousand of them.
    2. A new, sleek, RT-length rail. Again, nothing fancy. Maybe a stripe/groove or two down the side.
    3. A new foregrip. Dear god, will someone please make a better foregrip with rubber grips? And make it less than 6" long? Those old RT foregrips were awesome. Why can't we get something like that again (but with ports at the top)?

    And don't sell raw stuff. That's an instant "no thanks" from half your potential buyers because we don't want to go through the hassle of finishing it ourselves. Just make it black so it matches the parts that AGD is selling. (Anyone who has the money to anodize it can waste a few more bucks on the difference between raw and black parts. That's not a big deal.)

    You'll notice that I didn't mention a frame. That's intentional. We already have the x-frame and Luke's frames and Nummech frames and a dozen others. Not to mention all the non-AGD frames that can be converted easily enough. Nothing you bring to the market is going to sell well. Not unless it's actually affordable.

    As long as we have a wish list..

    I wish there was a high-quality single trigger frame, or at least one that doesn't use the damn panels instead of grips.

    most of the frames that use panels are frames that have other functions designed into them such as, room for pneumatics/electronics/ what have you. and to mount such things the grip screw position moves. not in all cases but I would say some.
    or its a 90* frame and would look weird with 45 grips on it.

    I understand. Id personally love to buy a mechanical single-trigger 45 or 86 frame, which fits 45 grips and feels as high-quality as some of the current single-trigger frame offerings. It can have any other bells and whistles, as long as I can use Dye stickies.

    Okay, yeah. This would actually be really nice.

    I've actually been dreaming of an Automag single-trigger slider frame for a long time. How cool would that be? You'd have to design it to work without a trigger arm. The back of the sled would have to slide directly into the bottom of the sear. And it would probably be best if the sled had a bearing at the point of contact so it's not rubbing metal on metal. But it could work (though I'm not sure it would shoot any better than the standard pivot trigger).

    All that extra R&D and material wouldn't be cheap, though, so the frame would be expensive. And that goes against what I said before about trying to keep things affordable for the average player. So nevermind all that. Just keep it simple.

    I wish you the best of luck with your wishlist. For as many frames out there on the market, there have been as many rail choices too. Likely more. Plenty of foregrips too. Making parts for cockers has always been cheaper than making parts for mags. It is inherent in the design, and similar to the design and function(and spec differences) of an AK-47 vs. an AR-15. Both good guns though.

    The reality is very simple, the cost and risk of production, added with the amount of work to sell through, along with the market size and demand, does not paint a picture that your wishlist will be a reality. Its been heading in the wrong direction over the last decade. Maybe there is someone out there with those skills, with a few thousand dollars to burn, and could care less if they lose money to be charitable. I havent found them though. Good luck to you.

    Hmm Interesting & looking forward to seeing whats cooking! The custom parts market looks to have a good number of consumers, more & more are returning to the sport. I hope this manufacturing project takes off & does well as the Automag's need more options! The Autococker market is flooded & I ventured away from Mags for awhile but selling off all my autocockers in favor of the Automag's which I think are a superior paintball gun. Looking forward to the new part options ConradCustoms
