Yes we will one day.

The plate pocket has to be redesigned to a no pocket handle which means another pump plate has to be designed.

The acrylic gets thin and breaks.

We did this on the new gun and it looks awesome but its pretty fragile

Why not machine grade polycarb? Polishes up pretty good and can take a beating.

I did. polycarb is 3 times the cost of acrylic.

here is the problem. After the pocket is cut the wall gets really thin and will break even if bumped.
The T-grip on the right is polycarb. It is not as clear as acrylic it also doesn't come in a variety of colors. Polycarb can be dyed.

So the pocket would have to be eliminated and a new plate would have to be made just for acrylic T-Grip

Man but it would look awesome. Next t2 I order black pump handle just has no place on the gun. Any other options for a blue pump handle? Are you doing any more acrylic in the new style pump handle?
Thanks again for the help.
Matt
