So I received my body and rail...this was my thought for it:
looks good but the frame is screaming to have the back tail cut to match the bottom of the rail
Yeah it would look nice if the frame tail followed the lines up with the rail.
Nice work guys! It is always nice to see new automag designs. I can't wait to see someone anodized a body and rail. I think a polished body with a solid color would work great with this design.
OMG!!!Beautiful. I have to change my underwear now.
I took the road least traveled...now where the hell am I ?
I really like the looks of it.
I like the flow even though it has a blocky feel. I have a question and comment about the top of the body. I'm not sure if it has purpose that I don't know with the half round concave shape, but I wonder why the armada pattern wasn't continued from both sides and verge in the middle of the top portion of the body? Making a "V" from the merging line paths? It would kind of be a ripper blocky hybrid.
I would love to a couple if that was possible so I could complete my armada rail.
One reason is because I don't have a 4 axis machining center.
HOLY MOTHER THE COLOR ON THOSE IS SO INCREDIBLE
might i add a twist to the rail/ body design is a sunrise mill job like the rising sun of china/ or is it japan? where it sun burst out both ways instead of the one direction. it is a real nice body and it about time luke pound out a body!!!
It's the WW2 Japaneses battle flag your thinking of(Rising Sun). And to do it right it would have to be white and red. Might look kinda cool,and I believe the whole pattern would have to include the body rail & frame to make it really work, I don't see a great mass appeal, it would make a nice one of... but give Luke a break and time to get a really weird machine. He's already well on his way to Rougeness as far as offering really nice Whole mag sets. It's gotta be hard to design a body and rail that will blend well with all the custom stuff available. A z frame under that might be killer cool but we won't know till someone try's it. I spend 3/4 of my time mixing and matching to get a nice flowing look, it's a pain in the ....
Woo hoo post# 600! I feel all warm and fuzzy
looks awesome Luke. keep up the good work
also kwik.....whoa. Those ripster twins look amazing.
Anybody looked at caustic customs Facebook page lately?
I hope the owner has a purple x-valve......
No no no, I saw it this morning (for me)! But you'll have to work on it before me !
It was a gift for my wake up !
And.... Yes, the purple valve is on its way to me !
A future MOTM winner ????
I was kidding ! I don't even know if I'll put it.
You're right it all depends on who's voting, tastes and colours vary a lot with peoples.
I put one of my mag (my toxic or my rpg I don't rememeber) in the MOTM a moment ago, I think it didn't recieved more than 2 or 3 votes...
I believe I've come up with a viable way of making bodies on my mill. I don't have a lathe so the internal milling is going to be tricky. I've checked tooling and have changes in mind for the internals that I think is viable for VMC production. Plus I have a new concept for bodies and rails that has never been done before, in all it's going to be an interesting project and a big leap for Luke's Customs.

Developing mods for the LPR would be a waste of time with the number we are talking about. I did do a few test lprs that no one has seen yet but I'm not sure I will put anymore time into it that I already have. We'll see.
If I were get my hands on a limited supply of slug bodies would anyone be interested in one of these body/rail combo?
I would be interested in two of am/mm length bodies to go with the two armada rails I already purchased from you. I would love them pumped milled if possible.
