I may already be ahead of you guys on the rounded tube bodies. I have one done already in brass, with the top tube modeled a little after doc's fastback cockers. Working on the bolt now, along with the final durocoat design. The bolt is already laid out (quite a bit different than anything I've seen here, basically a self-contained mag valve's front end) and almost done. The machinist I work with on this stuff, Ty McNeer over on MCB, is working ridiculous real life work shifts but should be done with it soon. I did have a bolt made by a machinist here, and we got about 50 shots out of it before we found out that the design was flawed, basically kicked the living **** out of the body and itself and had to scrap it. Anyway, long story short, yeah you can definitely do a round body for this, or even use brass stock if you like that sorta thing. Which I do.

By the way, New Ion, freakin' awesome job. It's looking great so far, keep up the good work.

Hey, is there any chance that you're still working on this? I'm on my 7th generation of bolt and running into a few problems. Wondered if you ran into them too and if you had figured out a fix. The biggest two issues have been blowback up the feedtube and bolt survive-ability. Any chance that you've run into this stuff?
