    So has there been a purchase date set for these bodies? Are you going to wait to do more testing and maybe start selling closer to Tax return time? Between these and the valve caps it looks to be a good spring for automags.

    This may be a dumb question, but for the one CF piece design, couldn't the feedneck be built into the top attachment. No need to buy a seperate feedneck and ultra low profile? OR cost for a one off?

    Bring on the valve caps...currently have cash!

    with a threaded feedneck you have many options for aftermarket feednecks, in case someone does not like your design. Also it is much easier/cheaper to simply thread a hole than to mill an integral feedneck.

    If there was an extra inch or so of material required to mill a feedneck it would not only affect the size of the stock ($$$) but also increase the time required to machine ($$$). Usually the cheapest and simplest way of doing things is the best from a manufacturing perspective, and it translates to a reduced cost at the consumers end as well.

    It would be cool to see these with anno'd parts... I think you have some other stuff to send, right? Decided to vote incase I can come up with some cash.

    I am still testing the bodies. Gotta but some miles on them and check for wear before i can offer them for sale. Nothing like testing out in the frigid michigan weather! Its going to be time to rebuild the shoebox...its been working overtime filling big SCBA tank.

    Planning on getting the prototype anodized so i can get some pictures. Im still on the fence on what body i like most....Im leaning towards the one piece. Interchangeable front tubes is a nice feature though. YES YES the back caps still need to get finished....too many projects.

    I voted one piece because interchangable fronts sounds cool but how often are people going to actually change them. Also you would have to buy extras if you wanted different fronts.

    Can you get sanded carbon fiber tubes so that they kind of match a DW barrel? Or would you offer sanding them as an option?

    Would you be able to do the one piece pump compatible, or is there not enough material in the insert etc....

    Have you had a chance to weigh these bad boys? I'm wondering what a one piece pariah style body would weigh.. could make for an interesting build.

    I'll end up buying one of these when you put them up for sale.

    Im not real sure how well the carbon fiber would hold up to the pump rod. Ive never seen a pump automag in person but i am familiar with the milling. Its possible to mill the body but not sure the tapered slot in it would hold up.

    They are both 25% lighter than the same bodies i make from aluminum.

    Any chance we could see an ultra light body and rail combo? I have some dangerous ideas formulating.

    Yeah, I'm also pretty sure you'll end up costing me more money with either of these two.

    I need to get my hands on a good looking gloss black rail so i can take some pictures. The only rail i have right now is a beat up emag one.

    i think the two-piece design would be a more durable part in the long run (screws going into a metal part), so that's what i voted for. the cheaper production cost would be a nice side benefit.

    Screws are going into metal in the 1 piece. there is an metal breech insert inside the body...super strong 7075

    I thought I'd never find a good looking alternative to my classic minimag's polished body. I'm totally sold on your 2 piece design, though.

    If you make them. I shall buy.

    I've been watching the dealers forum for the swivel fittings. Are you still planning to make a batch?
