    I like the look. should try to make it a 3 piece like the packs.
    The LPRs are already made just not milled to shape, a "slug" I guess just not a lot of excess material to remove. I didn't finish them all because I wasn't sure which design of the 5 choices people would like.
    I suppose I could machine a mock bottom if that was what everyone wanted...

    I don't know about the LPR-FG, I'm kind of leaning to this one with the additional milling and I can still add something on the sides>

    I like the one piece valve.

    Valve and barrel are just for mock up.

    I really like that, great design. Think I've got my next mag build wish list already

    Maybe a radius on the bottom edges of the foregrip?

    That one is v2. The original has no accent lines. Don't mess with the Deflator.

    Maybe a single contour on the front where that match line goes across (?) An S sort of indent. It would be comfortable and locate your hold for you. I don't remember if you have space under there or not. Everything else is easy curves on the outline, so I'm trying to see something that matches the frame better on that side.

    Did you try the six ribs you have on the body?

    I tried similar ideas to that that didnt work. I designed at least a dozen lpr's and everything I tried ruined the flow of the rest of the marker. In concept it seemed like it would work but the actual model didn't. Haven't given up on it, just giving it a rest, something will eventually come to mind.

    Just remember the 2009 Micromag debacle, trying to please everyone just turns out to be a nightmare for everyone involved.

    I realize that was only one part of the issue, the rest being PTP not machining stuff correctly.

    Unfortunately for customcockers it turned out the same with the Autococker run .

    Small update.
    I've decided scrap all plans involving manufacturing a slug body similar to the AGD design. I've had ideas for years now for a re engineered body that's never been done before that I've opted to do instead. As of a few minutes ago I've finalized the engineering of the "slug" parts and will start the programming to make the prototype(s) tomorrow. I don't want to release all the details at this time but will do so as the project evolves. The first body will still be "The Deflator" but like a stated before that's not really the exciting part of this project, the coolest part (For me anyway) is the fresh new concept for Mag bodies and the ability to manufacture them.

    Ok I just got a semi chub, can't wait.

    And it will have a matching cram and jam right.

    Yea, a y-grip will still work.

    One man's Deflator is another man's Viagra. I really like this design, especially with the extra milling - it somehow completes the marker without being too much. Toned down just enough to be tasteful, at least in my opinion. I for one would seriously consider buying this if a production run ever came to fruition.

    They will be made even if it's in small numbers.

    The name in essence is a shout out to Big Evil, but for me it's more about the Automag deflating other players ego's on the field. In the right hands I think the T-Rex (Thanks to AGD) can easily keep up with everything out there.

    The only issue with it as always is there's no way to limit the rate of fire to 10.5 bps.

    They need an excuse to keep mags from executing the latest greatest electronic banana of the year......
