Thread: Alternatives to the RT Classic banjo?

    Alternatives to the RT Classic banjo?

    I just picked this beauty up and I wanted to put me M86 frame on it but I dont want to commit to drilling out the rear frame hole for the banjo and be stuck only being able to use the frame on the RT.
    Has anyone come up with an alternative to the dilemma?

    I do have the matching RT frame, but I really like the M86 on it.

    i think you can get a bushing so you can use an rt frame on a classic rail.

    I've used bushings in the past in classic RT frames to use them on normal mags. BUT. To use it with a classic mag and not drill it out. Can't see that being done.

    If you drill it out, all you need to do is use a Level 7 spacer to go back to use on an AM/MM.

    Not sure I follow..
    The only frame bushing I have seen/used is the tiny one on my EMag rail.
    Can you show me?

    You slide a Level 7 spacer into the large RT banjo bolt hole in the back of the frame.

    The OD is such that it stays in by friction, and the ID is much closer to the size of the standard Automag fieldstrip pin.
