    Deflator Body Kit

    Deflator Body Kit $320
    http://www.lukescustoms.com/deflator-body-kit.html
    Available around 10/5/16
    All the parts are made including slug bodies so the project wont take long. I just put a 3 week dead line on the bodies to give people a chance to buy one.
    I don't know how many I'm going to make so you should probably not wait until they are completed to make your purchase.

    What you get with the purchase:
    > Deflator body
    > Empire-Angel (threaded) feedneck ring
    > Feedcup
    > Stainless steel spring cup
    > Sear Pin
    > Sear pin set screws
    > Detent
    > Detent spring
    > Detent axle pin
    > Carrier Plate
    > Carrier plate 10-32 flat head screw
    > Front grip frame replacement screw (Proper length to clear detent)








    Waiting for final payment

    It shouldn't be long is the best I can say, I'm taking a few days off then hitting it hard. As I stated before I have a jump start on production now so I'm not starting from ground zero.

    Thanks.

    As far as anodizing, I have no problem helping out on a group effort if everyone can settle on one design/color.

    Deposit sent, I will be interested in the lowers also when the time comes.
    I would also be interested in a group anno. Dont care at all about the colors.

    Maybe we can talk caustic customs into doing some nice borderlands style anno patterns on them since the body reminds me so much of that game.

    That's actually exactly what I had in mind! Sort of a rusted/corroded metal look

    I've had a chance to think about the feedcup situation since Brian ask about buying one of my prototype feednecks. I think I'm leaning towards just tweaking the design of this feedcup since I have fixtures and programing done. I understand most want a lever type but that would add considerable time to the project and push delivery back easily a month minimum. If you guys can live with this (tweaked some) I can add it to deal for an additional $10. That would of course include all the hardware and you're already getting the feedneck ring.

    I believe I figured out a way to make it work better with the different size hoppers, the following is just a reference to get a feel for the feed cup.



    Thoughts?

    I actually like that style. I prefer not to use a lever myself. I've gotten rid of every one I've ever used.

    EDIT: And yes I'd be in to add one to my order.

    For my style of play a lever isn't necessary. On the odd chance that I will bring mine out I will throw on a Rotor and leave it there until I pack up. People who switch guns might like them because it saves them 5 seconds but even then I would prefer a screw as I've had levers flip open mid game before.

    Personally I like levers, and would be willing to wait/pay for one, but it won't make or break my interest in this platform

    It's not going to happen any time soon, probably years so it's this or nothing. (lol) I have many other projects I would rather work on, plus all the difficult work is done on this. Tweaking it wont be to bad in order to get it done in a reasonable time to ship with the bodies.

    Honestly I dont like the lever style necks myself so getting enthused to design one would take some effort.

    Just a heads up, the "pre-production pricing" window will be closing soon, not to mention the chance to bring the price down overall for everyone. The slug body machining will finish up today or tomorrow. (The other stuff will be right behind)

    I'm not completely sure but I will probably do extras but the cost will be higher than the pre-production pricing offered here.

    So I'm anticipating somewhere in the neighborhood of 7/15/16 I'll have to make a final decision on how many of these bodies to make. With little interest in this design, at the most I will probably only make an extra 5 or 6 bodies, if that. Just a heads up for anyone that hasn't decided if they want one or not.

    Been thinking about the feedneck and I believe I have a design figured out, just nothing drawn up to look at. I've decided that I'm just going to throw the feedcup in for free, presuming there are no unforeseen problems (Just a disclaimer, there shouldn't be any issues)

    Slug body and carriers are complete, next are detents followed by stainless steel springcups then the feedcup, last will be the Delfator body, grip frames, panels and FG-LPR's.

    I'll be asking for final payments around 7/15 so I can start machining the Deflator parts.

    Honestly haven't considered it, I'll have to think about it.
