A real shame to see this didn't get funded. Why go to the trouble of an indiegogo campaign if you're not going to do any actual campaigning? I don't get it. They put almost no effort into this.

I am pretty bummed that it didn't get funded.

I really like the design. I hope they can figure out a way to get them going.

I'm stuck between these possible mags or PE new mags.
I like the wind free design of the FID, But the removable door on the PE should speed loading times. Very conflicted.

It was so odd though. No newsups? No promotion via influencers? I know wolf talked about them a bit but hardly, and not in a coordinated way. No google ads? Not even an official post in the news section?

Their official instagram account hardly even mentioned it.

It's like they wanted the campaign to fail. That or they just thought indiegogo would do all the work for them.

If you knew anything about the people behind it, you would know itís not surprising at all. Also they got 28k funded.. it would have been easy to self finance the rest... there were just so many questions left unanswered.

I'm happy to see that FID went forward with production, and I just went ahead and preordered a bunch. I was going to hold out for the PE CF20s but given PE still hasn't revealed a release date I'm getting tired of waiting and need this already, I'm tired of flipping mags around and really looking forward to keeping up with the mag capacities of other guns on the field.

Does anyone know the dimensions on these? Would be nice if they were a little shorter than the Dam 20's for those of us who play scenario where prone is useful. I know the PE CF20 are going to be about 1/2" shorter, better than nothing I guess.

I saw this on their FB page, it doesn't show dimensions but just a rough size comparison.
