    Gauging interest

    As most of you now by now i do some Custom stuff, ive been working on some frame and body ideas but have been concentrating on the body more.
    Anyway this is still in progress but what do you guys think? as i wil put this into production if there's enough interest.
    The final version will have eye covers and hidden detents.
    it still needs some work but here it is:

    Looks great in my opinion, the lines remind me of modern automobile design. I am willing to say that quite a few people would be interested, me included.

    Flat rate box prices are ridiculous. IIRC its about $30-40 to ship a small flat rate box to Europe. These could easily fit into a padded envelope and it wouldnt most likely be over $15.

    16.96$ USD to ship in a small flatrate box.

    Shippings notbad at all all you need to do is do a search on google to get the best price
    i can get a 5 day delivery insured packet to america from england for about $25

    That is probably the best milling I've seen on a mag body. Any consideration on doing a single piece body/rail combination? What are you planning to use for detents?

    That looks real nice. If the price is right, I'd be interested as well.

    Am I mistaken, or is this a unibody? I'll admit, it does look nice. Unfortunately I'm not currently in the market for a new setup, but it is one of the better designs that I have seen. I think demand will obviously depend on price.

    it is a single piece its stillin progress, once i finish it i will give a guide on price.
    it will have eyepockets and covers willed in each side milled for egostyle eyes and milled for detents aswell

    I'd probably figure a price for eye milling and non-eye milling if there is a significant cost difference.

    Love it!

    I would not do eye covers unless they are set into the body though. This was the main reason, other than price, that few did the old style eye mod. Most say they dont like the way the eye covers disrupt the lines of the body. But there are other options now. I still think internal eyes would work even with an integrated design like this. The only issue is the tooling needed to do the internal eyes is very delicate.

    Eye covers would be flush like on a DM7 for example, as for extra milling on a batch of 10-20 it wouldn't bump the price up by much at all
