    Testing the waters for RTP length AM/MM rail.

    I have an opportunity to purchase some AM/MM rail extrusion that was made to AGD spec.
    So would there be any interest in a RTPro length rail of this type?
    I don't have any specific styles in mind but I'm completely open to a new rail design or perhaps a few.
    Of course current designs can be incorporated into the longer length.
    I would really like to do a preorder in a large enough number that I could pass a good deal to those willing to prepay.
    I want to finish the LPRFG before we start any machining on these but I wanted to get a discussion started now so we can knock these out when the time comes.
    LMK what you would like to see.

    Here is a concept drawing of an AM Rail at about 9.1" long.
    (Stock rails are 8.0" long)

    What kind of sear pin would this use out of curiosity? I know you have the LPRFG in mind when making this rail, but any thought of making a AM length rail that had RTPro characteristics?

    Automag sear.
    This is an Automag extrusion, you cant really turn in into an RTP.
    An RTP rail would be different project and made from billet.
    This project would allow me to take advantage of extrusion that is currently available to me.

    I like it for the simple fact that it can be milled and not have the screw holes of the RTP rail.

    I also like the idea of milling them to be similar to your current milling patterns, just bigger. I would love to see it milled to match the front radius of the LPRFG, then something like the Beta milling.

    The AM/MM rail never did have the side holes... (??)

    That would not be a problem.

    I realize these would be AM/MM style rails with variable length... but is there anything really prohibiting milling/tapping these for an RTP style sear and pin instead of the drop-in AM/MM style?

    Yes, there is.

    Out of curiosity, what is it? Width? Lack of material on the sides due to the wings?

    No. That is not an Automag/Minimag rail, that there is an RTPro rail.

    An unmilled AM/MM rail will look exactly like the picture in post #1.
