    Thanks!! The plan is to button everything up and re-laser the valve and the fore grip with RT :-)

    Yes! So excited to see this through.

    XMT really did a great job with these bodies. We're going to have a fun 2020 of MOTMs.

    Is this meant for an RT valve or X valve? Looks like a rt classic rail, body looks like it’s for an Xvalve.

    That's most definitely an rt classic body, if you look at the end of the body a little closer you'll see the end of the body hiding a valve.

    Yep, it is a rt classic. I sent only the back half (exposed) part of the valve anodized dust black and it will be relaser'd. The serial was in the 4000s, but I still wanted to keep the serial number. Looks like I will be getting this Sunday or Monday

    I'm not usually big on camo patterns, but I'm insanely jealous of this one

    I'm the opposite, I'm big on camo patterns but I'm really picky with the pattern. I love how this came out, I'm a sucker for tiger stripe patterns.

    This looks amazing. Were there any issues anodizing the grip piece and site rail? Someone mentioned to me those pieces cannot be anodized being SS but yours looks beautiful.

    Thanks!

    Hey digital, the original RT has aluminum sight and foregrip rails. The newer RT Pros has thinner SS rails.

    Who did you go to for the ano and laser on the RT valve? I thought about doing that to an x valve, but wasn't sure how cost effective it would be

    Thanks for all the posts!! It was a pretty fun build. I got it shooting, but my paint was crap. I'm looking forward to heading to the field to get it dialed in.

    Anodizing: Arc Anodizing
    Laser Engraving: No one yet. I have a coworker in another state that could do it, but I never used him yet so I'm not sure I would recommend.
