Oh yeah, I keep forgetting you've already built a functional version.

As for lettering, smaller is better. If you have a way of programming in your logo 1/2" in size with a 1/8" H block font, that would be a lot like a contemporary firearm.

Like:

AA
AAAA
AAAA MAGNUM
AA

Literally, A Magnum.

Anyway, it's going to look badass.

-what's everyones thoughts on the engraving on the slide? smaller font perhaps? I'll play with that tomorrow a bit but I think the main design is basically perfect and I'll get it quoted right away for production.

-DPH, maybe... we'll see. I don't see why not really.

-Kos, I don't think I will make a manual prototype... the last duckbox took basically 40 hours to build, it's tough to make that kind of time... the important part is that the functional properties are proven out by the first Duckbox, this design basically improves on it without any wild changes that would affect the basic functionality.

-what else... I dunno... I'm really happy with this design and how it looks and goes together, it's a bit more expensive to machine but I don't think it matters... price may reflect it, but I don't think we're aiming for minimizing the price point here, rather we're looking for the most spectacular, attractive and functional design possible, the finest pump pistol we can possibly build at this time without going too complex or overboard

I like kospauste's idea, but it has to say ".68 Magnum" because that's badass, and everyone knows that anything Magnum instantly gets +100 babykilling Awesomeness.

What's the difference between 100 dead babies and a Ferrari?


I was planning on doing a splash/fade ago but with the new Magnum kit I'm not sure what to do...

I definitely like where this is going... as you may recall, I had questions about where the origin of Duckbox came about. I didnt like it back then. I dont like how it sounds now.

How about .68 Retro Cal Kit?

Josh, whenever you are ready for monies to be committed to this, I am ready. Just say the word. I would though like dual engravings of the Avratech logo on my mag kit

Oh, any update on the zero barrels? lol..........

How about the .68 Maple Syrup Magnum kit? Pancakes are great, but you need maple syrup to make them awesome.
