Carbon fiber frames

Just looking for some info on them. How easy are they to get the rt effect on? Also how much are they usually? I'm looking to pick one up for my rt classic. If I need to drill out the rear frame screw hole what sized bit should I use?

For one with an uncut trigger guard and safety/trigger included, expect to pay no less than $15, and that's if it doesn't have any grips. Adding stock, aftermarket or custom grips takes the price up. Frames with stock grips usually fetch around $20 to $25 depending on condition, and with custom or aftermarket grips that can get somewhat higher. The Smart Parts wood wrap-arounds, for example, can cost $20 to $30 by themselves.

That said, most of the ones you find for sale in the BST are going to have stock grips, either old or new style, and will cost $20.

Yeah Justus is right on with the prices. But as for your question about using one of the CF frames for your RT I doubt it would work cause I assume your talking about the air through rail and rear bolt from your description. As I have a mint cf frame on my minimag and the rear mounting hole is already tapped out pretty much there is some wiggle room for a normal field strip screw but not enough for the RT bolt to my knowledge.

AGD made a CF grip for the Classic RT with a larger hole. I have no experience trying to drill out a regular grip and really don't know how that would work out. I know it can be done with Intelliframes, but they're aluminum. Carbon fiber... ???

Thanks guys, I got an rt classic frame from Bacci for 15 bucks. Any idea how easy it is to RT on a CF frame?
