Magazine progress:

design challenges:
-holds 32 5.56x45 cartridges
-will not protrude below the grip of the rifle
-will electronically keep track of number cartridges contained and send the number digitally to the rifle

So far it's looking like it'll be 3 stacks of cartridges, and the spring will be moved from the bottom to behind. The dimensions change to about 2" shorter in height than a standard 30 round AR magazine, about 1-2" longer, and about 1/2" wider.

We made the brackets to hold the pump, we made a brass sprinkler head into a flange to which we bolted our gear, we also went through the internals of the pump and swapped parts out to ease friction, and that's about it. Simplicity was at the core of what we did.

You should get a drop for your car even just a tiny a bit. It would significantly improve it's cosmetic appearances as well as improve handling

great post. Miles will get a kick out of this

i can tell you who the loser is. his name is Chris. and he used to own a company. a company that spent 5 years to design a turbo kit...on a car that was already turbo'd from the factory...and never finished. then built a track car that was an endless money pit. then built a drag car that was a endless money pit that couldn't set any records. then continued to not expand into others markets on the hope that people would be dumb enough to buy their overpriced e46 stuff. then when that didn't work they sold hats. then t-shirts. then stickers.

actually, i kid. you're the winner for bumping an almost year old thread.
