    I was using a measuring tape to estimate how much would have to come off. I won't know exactly til I get back to work.
    Also, is the rt classic body SS or aluminum? I was just wondering because it's so much lighter than my MM body.

    Ok, I was just really shocked by how much lighter it was.

    Never really thought about the body weight. Mine has been totally dismantled 3 times I think since 97.

    No problem with the specs. Did that while inventorying a pile of pb stuff I'm getting ready to post up for sale.

    Interested to see the outcome to this. I've always preferred the classicRT look also. And thought about doing what your planning. Just never did it since I use my classic rt as a main gun anyways.

    Only point that I see that could matter. The retaining pin in the reg portion. On all normal mag valves its close to the back on the left. On the classic rt its close to the front on the right. And hooks in to the main body. Not the rail. Me. I prob wouldn't worry about it at all. But others might.
