Title: Adjustable Mag Kits - Updated 1/23/18
Post by: xjchad on December 28, 2017, 01:56:50 PM
Hey guys,
I'm hoping to have my Adjustable Mag Kits available soon!
I'm tweaking a few things to make them more easily installed and work as well as possible.
All parts will be stainless steel aside from the magnet and knob. The knob is anodized aluminum.  
I don't have the price nailed down yet as I'm waiting to get a quote on one more machined piece.
As soon as I have pricing available I'll update this.
Thank you all for your interest and advice in getting this off the ground!  :)

Update:
Hey guys, thank you for all the interest!
Unfortunately, it's going to take a bit longer than I hoped.  All the kids and my wife have been passing around a nasty stomach flu this week pretty much eliminating any extra time I had to put into it.
I also just talked to my machinist and he is sick as well. 
Hopefully I'll have some of the new versions ready to go soon, but in the mean time, I can make the first version like what"s on my 155.
I can also install them if you'd like to send me your reel.

Got my first article from the machinist.  Doing a test fit asap and probably a couple changes before a production run.  Couple other parts in the works also.

Ok guys, I'm sorry this is taking forever, but I am making progress! 
Been a little preoccupied by fires, floods, and on the possotive side, our new daughter  ;D
Hope to have the first kits out next week!
