On my side the original design is perfect (or almost prefect).
I don't like angled foregrip it's not natural for my hands, I've only one on my toxic/airwalk mag and it's only for the "look".
Usually I like the RT foregrips but on this specific projet, I fear it would be too fat regarding the slim line of the "rail".
But, that's just my thought.
I can make these parts for you if you are not going to put air through them.
pm me anyone interested and we can talk.
ill need to get the file and test print. and see how it comes out and such.
but if its anything like the one I just do we should be good.
pm me if you have interest in this.
I sell new 800 mah Emag batteries, in dealers section, or pm for pricing. batteries ready to ship
To clarify knownothingmags is referring to Foregrip adapters. I can CAD them up when I have time.
any chance you could do the internal LPR like the G-force frames…that gives you more room in the frame?
Price pending of course, I'd want a modified handgrip if you'd consider doing one for me. Failing that, I'd want an asa adaptor. I've no interest in the benchmark.
Man I hope we get our bonus this year
You once mentioned that talon triggers might be an option. Is that still likely, or would that now be too many choices?
I'm thinking at this point I would rather use a trigger of my own design then outsource the parts.
I was looking through this thread and i use a company called solid concepts ( http://www.solidconcepts.com )to print metal parts all the time you are limited to Stainless Steel Inconel and Titanium, but if you want them to do some finish machining to a cad file or drawing they can do that to. If you are looking at their services and want info on metal printing look for their DMLS product (Direct Metal Laser Sintering). they usually turn plastic parts around for me at work in 1 day and metal parts are usually only a week and their prices are very reasonable for small projects. good luck with this project.
Nothing new about this project ?
With Knownothings situation its been slightly delayed. He is making me the test prototype.
Once I have that there will be some pictures of the prototype then testing. There is just enough changes that I want to make sure it works perfectly before opening a pre-order. Scott (BigEvil) is doing the testing and he has no problems telling me if it sucks or not.
Sorry for the delays.
Don't be sorry for that, there's no hurry ! I was just coming to the news !
KNM has to recover health first, that's the most important.
Take all the time you need for testing, that's the waranty to get a nice and perfectly working frame
im sending the stuff to you today keith,
email me you addy again, I have it but not sure if ill find it.
I hope the finish on the parts is what you were asking for if not I can do it again.
but they came out great.
I think they are Purdy.
Im sure whatever finish you managed is fine. Im only checking function. I only wanted pretty for the pictures and Im sure everyone here will understand if something not perfect looking.
couger, I just want to confirm that this run is reasonably definite (presuming that the testing works out and you can fill a pre-order). I'm planning a build around it that includes XMT's CF main body. So I wanted to check the status of this before I got on that pre order. Also, do you have a final plan for the foregrip?
While I'm blabbering, you are in NH correct? If you need an RTP or X-Valve platform to test these on I can lend you one (I'm in MA). I don't want to step on BE's toes, but it might be easier than shipping back on forth to Jersey.
I'll be for one, sure, I've the same project as PGOP with the XMT CF body (I already ordered mine ! ) !!!!!
I also have a VA that will accept any standard asa threaded foregrip. I have a very limited supply of Benchmark foregrips I plan to offer if they come apart nicely.
There will be a fairly complex options/pricing sturcture for these so those that want certain parts can get what they want.
Forgive me if this has already been answered but: the hole behind the trigger; is that for a pneumag MSV-2 actuation rod?
Maybe I am alone in this but I would like the foregrip mounting area to be as wide as a standard rail so that other foregrip options are more compatible. Imagine trying to put a DW CF grip on it or something like an RPG stick grip. They would look out of place on that skinny rail.
Just my $.02
To go with a va area that wide I would need to start with a chunk approxamitly 1 1/4" thick. Most of that would get milled down to 3/4" thick. Some smaller. The cost of the material is a issue. But the cost to cut it dowb is more of a issue. Machine times not cheap.
The other reason it was done thin was because the design is to eliminate the rail. To have a small wide rail in the front wouldnt accomplish that.
If its something that got enough interst i can design a adapter and KNM can print the for people. Ive already descussed that with him am he is willing to do it. He will not print anything intended to hold pressure.
Make sure it is wide enough to cover the boss area around the front screw hole on the ULE bodies.
Just didn't know what bodies it would be tested with and they all seem to have different cuts leaving a potential for a gap. It is less noticable with the standard feed ULE, but this was the only picture I had handy.
