I also can't stand the feel of a Glock they just don't point naturally for me, while the XD series is perfect.
Does yours by chance still have the fingergrooves? They're 'errorgonomic'! Removing them will bring the feel right where you want it if you like the 1911s!

Don't listen to Talfuchre CCMMachinist, pistols FTW!

if ccm made a pistol, I'm pretty sure about half of the mcb population would go insane and the backorder would be months..

especially a pump pistol

If it were a semi pistol I believe the wait list would be equally as long or longer.

So how much would it cost to have someone machine me my beloved Eagle .68s clamshells in aluminum? just out of curiosity

In prototype work the first part bears all of the cost. So a one off gun would probably be several thousand dollars.

Also reverse engineering or going from scratch really adds up.

If you were to hand us a print of the gun the price drops dramatically . It just becomes another machine part. Not counting fixtures or any special tooling.

so..what you're saying is if someone were to make a computer model of it with dimensions and such, you could build it?!

Yep, actually it does though I don't have the heart to take my dremel to it.

So the same applies to 'more conventional than my first idea' TPX bodies? I carried eagle68s back when and figured a fix for the bodies, but no velocity adjustment, the quick wearout of the internal parts and now no parts to build them with even if we had bodies. Plus someone would have to make mags... I don't think you'd get more than a handful of orders, none from me!

If I could get a bulk pre-order of at least 50 people wanting TPX bodies would that help the price? I personally would pay a grand for a pair of CCM 1911ish style TPX bodies, now, tomorrow or whenever, but for most that money isn't available.

I understand how much you have on your plate, but I'd like this idea to get it's place in line!

Hmmm...

Rob

The idea of some aluminum bodies (with real aftermarket grip options) is almost too much to think about.
