    Some of my mags

    Need4reebs has been asking me for pictures of my mags for some time now. So as I took few pics of my SmartMag with venom deluxe Highline, I also took a pic of my x-valve mag as it is now. I do have few more mags on the works but I'll post a pic of them when they are more presentable.

    Here's my SmartMag as it is now, it is also my first mag.





    And here's my X-valve mag as it is now.




    Karta mag. Anodizing by Caustic Customs, Lukes LPR foregrip and Vertframe with OLTR inside.

    Thanks. I made those grips myself as it's easier than source ones made by smart parts with any of the nicer colors.

    Well that just makes it all the more impressive. I wouldn't know where to start if I were to try to make wood grips. Maybe a tree?

    It seems to be Empire one, judging from the logo on side. To be honest I'm not sure. Renie would know since he's the one that built it originally.

    Thanks! I live relatively close to Helsinki, about half an hour out to the countryside.

    Thanks! Now I only need to finish the four other mag projects that I have underway.

    Beautiful work. The grips are outstanding. I had to make my own for my Sterling pump, which can take mag grips. But mine do not look as good. One piece grips?

    What kind of wood did you use? When I get some bike projects done I may need to consider this for my Y frame.

    2 piece like the smart parts equivalent.

    Furniture grade birch plywood. Here are pictures of them being made.













    tinted to colour of your choice


    then I just varnished them with urethane varnish with light sanding in between layers, untill I had about 7 layers. Then really fine sanding and polishing with farecla g3 polisher.

    A. Somehow I missed you wood grip pix. Sweet. Never would have dreamed they were plywood.

    B. I'm in love with the red/black fade on that karta. Seriously! That would be my prize marker for sure.... I'd use it. But it would be sitting on display any time I wasn't on the field.

    Thanks. It's actually acid wash, just really subtle. And it's totally going to get used.

    Extremely nice - good work!
    If that's not a sure-shot MOTM winner I don't know what is

    That Karta is absolutely magnificent.

    What kind of air fittings are you using at the valves? Those are interesting.

    Thanks!

    I'm mostly using CCM macro fittings(the current model). For the Karta I took off the front piece, attached it to a drill and sanded it until it was tapered enough so that it doesn't rub against the body.
