Cool Micromag Vert Feed Adapter and Forgrip Extender - Anyone Interested?

So back in July of last year I posted this:

Micromag Project



After many months and emails with my machinist I received some CAD sketches:





We tweaked some ideas and finally got a chance to get my hands on the PROTOTYPES:



Here is what they look like on a Micromag:






Again these are PROTOTYPES and I'm still working on the design. I am always open to suggestions on how to improve the design so please feel free to post ideas.

After posting some pictures I was asked if I would sell these parts. I wasn't planning to sell these because I didn't know what the Micromag market was like. So thats where this thread comes in. I need to know how many Micromag Owners are still out there besides myself and Frizzle Fry.

I have a new machinist that can mass produce these, but I need to have some rough numbers before I hand the CAD drawings over to them. So please vote if you'd be interested in the vert feed adapter and/or the forgrip extender or if you think it's a cool idea, but you don't have a Micromag.

Each vote helps me get better numbers on who might be interested. Thanks.


I just posted this same thread on AO. If you voted there then please don't vote here so I can get real numbers. Thanks. AO THREAD HERE

I think the foregrip extender is a great idea. The vert feed is meh.
Depending on price I'd be interested in several foregrip extenders (mainly if they are offered in gloss black), could probably be talked into one vert feed adapter.

I will work at making sure they come anodized so it saves some people the headache of having to send them back out. I know your a powerfeed lover so I wasn't expecting you to be over the moon about the vert feed. But glad you like the foregrip extender

Thanks. Been working on this for awhile now so it's cool to see that others like the ideas too.

I don't think I made this clear enough in my first post, I'm stoked to see these being developed for the Micromag, the greatest Mag platform.
I don't think this product will be something that sells 1000 units right off the bat, BUT I think you'll easily be able to move a couple hundred of them if you're willing to keep selling them for a few months. I get a PM from somebody asking me to sell one of my VASAs from the guns in my collection thread atleast once a week.

I would be stoked to convert one of my power feed micromags to a vertical feed. I am crossing my fingers you make these available for use!

Heck if even a 100 sell I'd be happy to see them in the automag/micromag community. I get messages all the time about vert asa as well. Thats why I dove into this project. It seems like those vert ASA keep disappearing from micromags. They are so rare that I just sold one for $50.

Hope we get enough interest as well. Tell your friends and family to vote so we can get some good numbers going to show that these could sell. Thanks.

No new updates yet other then the machinist has the CAD and is reviewing them. Want to keep this thread alive do feel free to post any suggestions to improve the design.
