    It looks likes a Karta and a Shockwave had a baby.

    I like

    EDIT:
    I want one in E-mag length.....

    EDIT2:
    I like the valve being exposed. What type of feed-necks were you gearing towards?

    EDIT3:
    I have a slug body, but that wouldn't account for the uni-body needs, would it. Would you consider slug trades plus cash? I know this may be a while off for production

    I'm 90% sure KNM has a program running that trolls AO for concept designs and posts this quote.

    I don't mind the valve being exposed. Also, EGO detents? Awesome! A move away from detents that are becoming harder and harder to find. Ego detents will give the body a cleaner look as well, and I'm fine with that.

    Renie: things you need to do.

    1) come up with a name. if you don't have one in mind, then start a post about suggestions for a name.
    2) when closer, start a post of interest or dibs, so we can get in line for these.
    3) throw out a number on about what what these will cost like. just so some of us can start saving.

    I love the look and the idea that the detents and feedneck will be modernized... And I bet it would look great with my airwalk... But a question: I would never consider putting eyes in this. Would you make one without eye milling (or with some type of plug?) I would prefer to avoid any cavities for paint shells/gunk/oil/snow to get into.

    I'm not sure if I can afford one of these... But if I can, my wife will be getting my tac.

    Piece of advice on the detents - the Ego ones might be problematic with the lvl 10. If they don't clear the bolt easily, it might make the lvl 10 retract. Most of the guns that use these types of detents have small slots milled into the bolts to aid the detents and prevent premature wear. Most spoolers use a ball and spring type detent. You might want to consider the ones that the Axe uses if the ego ones don't work out.

    Firstly sorry for the delay guys, personal issues have taken me off this for a bit, anyway ...
    Finalized the eye area with detent and wire cut outs, also added the sear pin hole, hopefully get this on the mill next week

    Firstly my apologies for taking so long on this, I have had family concerns that have been more important to my time, Thankfully things are looking up on that front.
    Anyway Back on track, well a little lol.
    Run this off on the mill today, just out off a block to see what it looked like, I run it with a 10mm ballnose with 1/2mm step over for speed, but I would reduce that a lot that on a production run.
    Just wanted to see what it looked like in the flesh now for some porn...

    Hah! I might as well split my paycheck between you, Luke and XMT, if you guys keep at it like this. But at least I don't have to pay customs fees on your stuff.

    Between this body, a uni frame, and some other things folks are working on I may have to sell a kidney and half of my liver.
