I have drawings for the Vibe and Envy brackets - but haven't ever handled an Extcy. I have a bunch of Vibe/Envy brackets just needing some finishing touches actually. Need to finish those...
Any chance the mech kit and the closed bolt will work together in an Ion? It would make for an interesting gun. Getting an Ion is on my list of things to get and then I'll do the mech kit at least if not both. Now I just need an Ion with Cocker threads!

Yup - the closed bolt kit was designed from the beginning to work mechanically. I test fired the first prototype with a modified cocker 4-way and a pair of pliers.

Have you named your ion kit? If you did you did you could base the company name off of your first engine.

There are some pics on page 14 but it was mentioned that they changed the design a little bit.

Not completely set in stone on the back cap yet, but the design being prototyped is similar to the one in the front here (similar - not the same).



I don't have any pics of the current prototype and may end up waiting on them for a bit longer.

I prefer the star pattern but more rounded edges.

I only pointed out the front one because it was in the best focus. The prototype has an even longer taper than the one in the back right.

The start patterned ones were actually more difficult to remove than the others - completely counter intuitive (I expected the exact opposite).
