    yes good pics,
    please.

    from what i have seen of the one pic, it looks sub deadlywind standard,
    it just looks like a prototype of what bunny owns now.

    they better put some CURVES in that BODY
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    Looks like a ul milled Xmag body. Neat and clean.

    edit: you can find it here http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...l7-museum-pics

    of those that got to check it out, does it seem like a worthwhile alternative? my xmag's body is pretty beat up, so id definitely consider this, if it was a viable option.

    Hmm... I thought there would be more pictures from the museum posted here... Here are a few crappy pictures I took of it. I spoke with Colin for a while and pretty much the Xmag breaches are holding up most of the process. I'm trying to work with him to get a resolution for the breach problem. Stay tuned for more information.

    Remember... this is a raw body that Colin polished up right before LL7.

    Not bad. I'm excited Deadlywind is getting back into the mag scene, but I don't understand why they would start by basically reproducing a stock body. This needs more curves and a better detent system.

    yeah this just looks too simple for deadly winds,
    dont get me wrong the xmag body is one of the hardest bodies to create,

    but a ule xmag body, i dont really care for it much,
    now if they would have done something to the effect of the armada xmag bunny has, with lines like that i would prolly snatch a couple up.
    but this, im sure ill pass on.

    It may be a prototype thing, but the cutout lower side, over the sear pin, looks very non-committal and out of place. Looks pretty nice otherwise. I'm still waiting for someone to get fancy with a waterjet cutter.

    Email brah, I don't think its my place to announce it for him

    Will it work with mechanical lowers, or do you need the E Mag lowers? Does that barrel come with it? I love it.

    The thing about that body it was a xmag slug from.agd, so I would assume it could be pure mech I u wanted. I had tried for years to vet these so I know some details but Idk if it's fair to Collin for me to say... I think it is top hush hush I just don't want to cross the line of trust I'm sure u guys can respect that. Email him that's what I did.

    if they refine some things more in the end ill probably buy 1,
    just to have it, but im still on the fence, price will be a big factor.

    I think that if they are going to re-create something, they should either make it a little bit different from the original (like improve the design somehow) or at least go for something like the SFL. Still, even if they go that route, I'd make it a bit different so that the original SFL owners are not affected on their makers value.

    It could be interesting to be able to use it with a frame and a foregrip as a "simple" unibody, not only with emag lowers (or stormwalk frame!).
