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

But 30-50 is a damn big # and I hope others are willing.
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.
