I compared two pictures and they both have the same angle at the front of the frame, so it looks like it'll work! Man, I'm really excited for this. I hope he's able to make this happen!

I hope people don't just say they want them and then bail when it comes to. Jason has/will put a lot of time, effort, and resources into these. Also, small run frames like this are usually in the $300+ range and offered raw or black.... these will be a great product at a great price

It will work no problem with an nxt va but it is a little funny looking. I have a pic here somewhere of mine on my RL and the frame to va leaves a funny looking gap. I'll post it up when I find it.

Sorry for not being able to respond yesterday. I had to spend some time outside taking in the natural elements after another Rangers loss

For anybody who's curious IMO speed frame > ccm frame by leaps and bounds. So if your willing to spend $130+ on a used ccm frame why not just put in the extra $30ish for a IMO superior BNIB speed frame in the color of your choosing?
I agree, the pre-order is large but if i'm going to put time/money and energy into making another small/larger batch; it has to be a larger batch.

I know money is always one of the biggest factors, the balance between what we need/want. Grrrrrr


Shooter28- The original design was pretty much for flow on an SFT. Gen 2.5 versions could/would have cosmetic alterations.

Darth_P - Again, it will fit the NXT although it wasn't originally designed for the NXT VA. I would find a balance between NXT and SFT; both would look natural.

Are you talking about thickness of that grip!? Good lord it is . In all honesty, the frame has a very natural feel to it, I have very small hands and it feels so right.


L8r_H8r- The question still stands good sir! The energy needed to be put into this production is big, but if i'm going to do it, i'm going all out and doing it.

The trigger guard on my personal gun gives the gun a great look in my opinion. The original design allowed really nice thumb wrap inside the guard and gave huge amounts of room.

I would like to design Gen 2.5 with removable guards; different styles to fit different needs.

Skinz-n-bonez - No pre-order has been set, this thread is quite crucial in determining feasibility and how many people truly want to have the frame.

It would come down to doing a final design on Gen 2.5; with most of the hard work already done. Next would come the design and fixtures needed for this production run; this would require at least 3 weeks of design and machining on fixtures alone. Actual production; week 4 would consist of machining all triggers and trigger guards; multiple designs. Week 5 would start frame machining, this will require at least 4 weeks in machining. We have to follow up with 2-3 weeks of post processing techniques; prep for Anodizing.

While I do have control because it's in-house production, the breakdown is an estimate based on what might be feasible. Things happen so there must be a safety margin for the unknowns.

A couple of years and I WOULD NEVER do this lol. That would be torture and I think I would end up hating my frames.



Sasaballer- The main steps are to see a crucial amount of interest before I even think about opening a pre-order.


B15cu1t - It has it's own trigger design and will most likely stay this way. The trigger area was a large feature for this frame. The idea was to move far away from stock slop and feel.


Paper_Cut - Jtguy2269 must be in my head.

Oldmanian - You the man

Tlmiller - I would have different designs.


For those of you I did not directly answer, thank you for the kind words and the support.


-Jason

Definitely interested. For me, it depends on the following:

1. trigger frames available
2. triggers available
3. rough price range
4. rough timeline

If the eigenbolt proved anything, it's that the shocker community supports custom work far beyond what's expected. I actually think getting orders for 30+ frames will be quite feasible for you.

I hope that you are right. These frames are really such an improvement over other frame options and I just think of people that missed out on the Mg eigen, the IPR kit, the clear can, etc. have learned that when you get a chance to get something like that, take advantage of it. Even better, if you can get a spare, do it, as shockers have a tendency to multiply!!!

It looks gorgeous, I'd be interested for sure if I knew the price, and rough time estimate, what colors, ect. PM me if you can, I tried to send you a message, however your inbox is very full lol. I'd also like to know how I would go about getting my sft body milled for break beam eyes.

I'm totally down to buy one of these. And I know what you mean. I'm still sad that I can't find an IPR kit. :-/

Much love from the community as always. I can't speak of prices but if anyone who knows what I sold the originals for, they would know and realistically know that it would slightly be a step up from that.

We'll see how it goes, i'm leaning on the community and making a decision to forgo this. I will not do it if it's not feasible or I hate to say it....worth it. It is worth it, but I work full time and still have a normal life, I have to devote myself and my energy away from "normal" everyday things to deliver.

I hope I can do it, but I really need you the community to do it.

Cheers.

Well I know there are at least a few of us that will buy two of them. I'll get one for my shocker and the other as an investment. Once they're off the market again I can probably sell it to someone who regrets not preordering one. Even if you don't do a second run I'd be willing to pay a little extra if you could just have one made for me.

just watched the zdspb vids on how he made some custom shocker frames(released??)/bb milling. wish i knew how to do this stuff! very cool that you have access to these amazing machines and skills to use them, speedy.

it makes you think, if theres THIS much support for a product that went out of production in 2009...i think DLX is stashing their luxe $$ for some special unveiling of some sort. eventually there will be no more sft/nxt bodies, parts, etc to tinker with i read somewhere that there are still more ions/shockers/impulses on fields across the country than other brands combined.

speedy-you also doing other metal work? bb milling, tapping sft for nxt va, etc?

I learned from the clear can, so I have an extra IPR kit and an extra eigen, and I regret that to date I have only one speed frame. I hope to get a chance to remedy it.

You taunt me so unfairly with that. :-/
But really, you should PM me about that extra IPR kit of yours. You know you want to :-p

I want one, I missed the first run. Owned every other shocker frame over the years. Might as well try this one. The only shocker community offerings I have missed is this frame and clear can.
