    RainMan pump kits!

    Apparently Rainman is doing a preorder for kits over on MCB and I missed the boat. Trying to get him to raise his run so if anyone is interested in a lot PLEASE go over and post up in the thread.

    I missed this too... I caught the part where he was considering it a few days ago but nothing beyond that.

    It's my understanding you haven't missed out on getting a mag pump kit, just the limited quantity of presale slots which are priced at a reduced rate. I believe he is doing a run of them and they will be for sale. He did the presale after many people were begging to get the project off the ground by footing some of the bill upfront with material cost. Therefore, he offered a presale to help offset the upfront cost of doing the project.

    He upped the quantity already...don't see why he wouldn't do it again? I may have someone else who may be interested in another pump kit also...

    Get on this ASAP. He doesn't make these very often. Last run was April 2010. They are truly the best mag kits out there.

    Wasn't he saying that he would reprogram the kit so that it would be easier to do smaller batches of them?

    I'm in for X1. I've already posted on the original tread on MCB if he would be willing to expand the preorder

    Looks like Rainman is going to be making pump kits for Emag length rails after the run of AM/MM length pump kits At least that is my understanding. Not sure if this had been determined previously but I figured it might be of interest to some.

    Well..... got my pump kit in today from Rainman and having some major bindage. I think there is an issue with the pump plate that fits up next to the rail. Think there was a mistake in the radiusing (term?). Rail does not sit exactly flush with plate. Only a MM or so, but seems to cause it to bind.

    Should be easily remedied, but will either require people to round the edges of the rail (worst case) or RM will have to take the plates back and repair them.

    Is it possible that it is your rail.

    Fits same way on another rail.

    Edit: Just to clarify, I am simply posting up to make sure people check theirs when they get them. Claudio has always been a stand up guy as far as I know and sure he will make things right. Just wanted to post up so people didn't get them, put them in a drawer and not find out until a year or more later.

    Yep, the AM has a goofy angle in that spot (51*) can't buy a standard tool to machine it. I seen several different approaches to work around it...
