    Can these be made in a rtp style rail in am/mm length?

    Slugs are done so we can commence with this project.
    After reviewing the design we're going to have to make some tweaks to smooth out some small details.

    Worked my butt off the last two days and completed 2 Armada rails, we have an RTP and AM/MM rail, both 8 inch in length.
    Both can be pump milled.
    Pump and non pump will be ULE milled.
    Foregrip mount holes (of course)
    Tomorrow I will design fixtures and work on the programming so we can get a thread up in the dealer forum.
    I'm pretty stoked with the rails, I hope we can sell a batch.

    There you go, (lol) was it all that??
    Technically not a fixture, but a soft jaw.

    I like to center the part in the vise. These rails are 9.1" long, vise is 6" long.

    I knew I was going to end up with a response like that from you Luke. The second I hit 'post', I was doh!

    I have a variety of different style 'bolt on stops' in this case it's not worth the effort or materials to design them into the jaws.

    I had plans on just posting pictures of the machined rails rather than CAD's, I'm super stoked about the designs though.

    very interested, I would pick one up immediately upon their release

  21. #51
    I hear ya

    Ive made countless sets of soft jaws for heavy production, usually I can only design a stop into them if I luck out and the part is shaped appropriately, just saves a few minutes in setup

    Plus I have had external stops move on me more than once

    But for what your doing, your on top of it

    You guys should post some pictures up. Please?

    Update:
    Been busy on this the past 2 days (and nights ) Designed and machined more fixtures for the second operation, and was able to program the AM Armadas (pump and non-pump) they are ready to be test cut.
    I'm zapped tonight so I'll try and do the RTP programming tomorrow.
    Almost there...

    Which body do you guys think will match the Armada rail the best?

    That's what I was thinking as well. Seems like the rest of the bodies that I can think of off the top my head would clash with the design of the Armada rail.

    Wonder what a Chord V2 would look like on it ?
    Pending a price, I am interested in an AM/MM length one.

    This project is just about ready for release, tomorrow night if all goes well. SO, it's not likely this time, that's a brand new design, it would require enough support in-order for me to do the design and programming.
