  1. Bump for a great deal. Lots of lookers. Lots of comments/questions... Just need a buyer.
  2. Today's bump. Complete package, ready to go for the next owner!
  3. BUMP for new price. Special deal for someone here on the forum! JD 8^)
  4. Do you think 'someone' on this forum would be kind enough to do that for me? Nice try!
  5. I had that same issue with the one I bought for testing. I fixed the problem easily. When you take the mag apart you will notice the follower is too narrow in the mag. The lugs on the follower that are supposed to stop it as it rides up in the grooves on the mag do not catch at the top. The follower has 'shrunken' after being molded. THE FIX: 1) Take a wine cork and stab it with a fork. (Fix works better while drinking the wine!) 2) Insert cork/fork into follower causing the follower to bulge out. 3) Get a coffee cup big enough for the follower/cork/fork to fit into, and fill it
  6. Put me on the list for one of the first batch please.
  7. The US made Promag is the least expensive option and it's SPECIFICALLY designed to be easily modified into a 5-round mag and no issues with breakage like the others.
  8. You should check out a website called "The Box-o-Truth". Tons of info about ballistics and shooting goodness. VERY interesting and informative. Heres the link: http://www.theboxotruth.com/index.htm
  9. I own, and have tested: AGP, Surefire, Promag and Mike Davidson (MD20 drum) products. I am unaware of any Promag ever breaking as do the AGP and Surefire mags. The Promag has metal feed lips. The Promag body is thicker and has more reinforcements. The design of the Promag floor plate better protects the end of the magazine and provides a better seal against contaminants. The Promag is DESIGNED to be shortened. (Cutting the body and spring is all that is required.) The Promag is cheaper. The Promag has a lifetime warranty. The Promag 'looks' (My opinion) beefie
  10. I thought I got the last of gunfixr's hand made gas knobs. It turns out that although I have a 'one-of-a-kind' knob, he did have a couple more as a result of cancelled orders. I suggest you contact FireArms Sales Co. and/or gunfixr directly and quickly. You may also contact MD Arms who has taken over manufacturing gunfixr's gas knob. MD Arms made a few tweeks and is now selling their version. Check the MD Arms website. NOTE: I believe there is a minimum 4 week wait before any start shipping.
  11. +1 Read and understand instructions before doing any fitting.
  12. I think I have commented in all/most of the threads mentioned by Corbin... I own, and have tested: AGP, Surefire, Promag and Mike Davidson (MD20 drum) products. FOR THE RECORD: I am unaware of any Promag ever breaking in this fashion. Can someone prove otherwise?
  13. I have a three port gun (The one pictured in my how-to thread.) I have one of gunfixr's plugs. The plug DOES make a difference. It HAS improved the functioning of the gun. The detents on the knob keep the gas ports and the passage in the knob exatcly aligned.

    I don't think the follower in the magazine will take the punishment of the bolt slamming into it on the last round for very long.
  15. +1 Corbin. WELL SAID! I own some of each: AGP, Surefire (Just got one), Promag and MD20 drum. They all function well. I PERSONALLY prefer the look of the Promags. The Promag also seem to be the easiest to modify to 5-rounds. I've also noticed that many of the latest pics on the picture thread are using Promags too. rock-n-lock!!! JD
  16. It's a 'signature edition' and a one-of-a-kind... I'm honored! I will cherish it and use it well! Hopefully it will be going with me to Afghanistan in a month. JD Fair enough, I wasn't sure what exactly you were getting at. It also seems that Tony had come up with an idea also, that he hadn't gotten around to trying, and there was someone else who tried one once, that had like 6 settings. Somebody posted a link to the thread when I posted my original thread of what is now considered the prototype. Most ideas that come out are thought of by several people acting indepe
  17. Tony: You are getting royalties right? Better get a copyright quickly.

    I authored that fix... Make sure you steps 6 & 6A very carefully. JD
  19. I believe I have the LAST hand-made gas knob from gunfixr. (I call it the 'signature edition!') It a beautiful thing! Works great. No issues now with Wally-World brass. (I have also polished and smoothed all the recommended parts and have 3 unobstructed gas ports.) I really like the ability to adjust it by hand without having to take a chopstick to the range. I have not had any issues with it becoming stuck. I have only fired about 100 shells with it and I clean my guns after each trip to the range.
  20. Thanks for the info Mike. I checked the UPS tracking number for the return shipping lable I put in the box and I don't see any activity. Did you create a new UPS shipment? Do you have that tracking number? Did it actually ship today?
