Frame was inspired by an OTB but is not a 1:1 copy. Trigger area is slightly larger than a B2k2. Hard mount for trigger switch and will have a battery setup added on at a later date. Not sure what size battery to run.
Not finished with the AutoCad modeling but should have a legit render sooner or later.
Well this should have its own post, first of all.
Now, you considered the inlets for the ram, but forgot the LPR gas channel to get to the noid. Its a fairly large hole, requiring a decent sized barb for it to get to the noid.
The 15° change, does not have enough meat on it to support the ASA. When you angle the adapter, you need to increase the length of the screw. Also, this doesn't take into consideration of possible aftermarket vert adapters and differing screw lengths, as well as angling it. You also have to push it more forward, to better line it up with the access hole there. You would need an oring groove to seal the vert. But even then, i do not thing that having the front of the tray unattached would even work. The only way i would see it wo4king is of you mounted the front, like a Shocktech tray and have a channel from the vert access to the mounting hole for the vert adapter.
3rd, the frame is bleh. Not everyone likes the feel of pure 90° frames. As a universal frame, you would need to be able to fit a plethora of things in it. You also need to take in the wiring, the board and the battery for them. Now if you go with a Kila Drive board(since they are still available new), you need to mount them via the microswitch, which you then need some meat behind the trigger and make sure that you have room for the trigger to move freely & be able to activate the switch without binding.
Now you need a trigger. I am sure that this is a preliminary drawing, but you do need to take in every aspect. If you use already established parts, it makes it easier and cheaper to use as well as give people options.
Now the bigger question is, are you doing this as a excerise in fun or are you serious in tryin to make a small run? Any one item might be cheap, but a tray and frame will be very expensive. I have seen new fully formed frames go for about $180+ each and that was from a guy that did all his own CAD work. That might not even take into prototypes to make sure everything fits and works like it should.
So if you want to talk about this, i can help you. Whether its through specific ICD related talk or even putting you in touch with people who have done this before.
