Please don't take that the wrong way; the photos are well shot but, to me, they don't flatter the guns as much as they could. If I get my hands on either, I'll take some pics and post.
I appreciate constructive criticism, and I agree with you completely. It's seems to be very hard to get great pictures that really portray our products. Carter does a great job. :tup:

It is a 1" OD. I look forward to seeing what it looks like with one of your pump handles on it.

No it's Aluminium. That's like aluminum but better because it has an extra "i".

I'm afraid not. Sorry.

Not at this point, but if it's successful and people bombard the Empire marketing team e-mail with requests for Olive Drab, I will push for that from my side too. Just help me out... a little.

Why a breech mod? The gun's breech is already designed to allow the use of First Strike rounds.

I'm not certain that will work, I would need to swap and match some parts. The internals (if you swap a full set) will work in one gun or the other, but to make it work with the grip frame and trigger, the rear donkey is a little longer to the mounting screw.
