  4.

  7. you all would not believe how much flack I caught in the mid 90s for putting one on a chi com underfolder!! -the "it has to look issue only" crowd -I for one love all the variations out there now!
  8. personally I have been cutting 3/8 " inch thick truck mud flaps up and glueing bumpers to the floor plates of my AGP mags then bevelling the edges at 45 degrees, and using a 1/2" diameter conduit section ground to a sharp edge , cutting /punching a hole to allow access to the floorplate retaining plunger(before attachment to the floor plates of course, but the bed liner is intriging ... wally world sells it in spray cans...hhhmmm?
  9. WOW !! I want !! was just about to buy an ace" cut that tang "adapter- adding the old trigger holes to yours is a big plus IMO!- 12 gauge is hell on everything , including blue loctite! you guys are on my watch list -very innovative
