The most interesting poll in the world... Retro 7 Duckbox style
I'm interested to figure out how many people are into the two main schools of style for the Retro 7 Duckbox kit... I came up with a very sexy shortened slide design and it seems pretty love/hate, and I want to consider the possibility of two different styles being available. that being said, they would need to share parts to make it cost effective for production. Regardless of whether I do one style or two of them, I'd like to have a poll to get numbers for both the options, I like to have data to support doing things like offering options which require the production of even more parts.
NOTE: both options are designed to be machined for pistol sight dovetails, and these will be added to the final production design.
First option, is the Short Slide Duckbox concept, which is a new development and very awesome indeed:
Second option, is the Long Slide Duckbox, based off the original design but modified to share the lower slide with the short Duckbox. It also requires it's own feed tube since neither the stock feed nor the short slide feed will fit:
From a later post:
Newer, thicker return-spring guide rod:
Discussion posts about the two styles are welcome, poll numbers are for reference only

Walking without rhythm
Love that Long slide look!! I even like the shortend pump handle on it too.

I like Heinous's full slide with ejector port the best so far, next to the original. Everything else.....pass. Looks incomplete, like someone hacked a chunk off for no reason.

Long slide. So it can be racked overhand like a 1911. It would be nice to have the option of reaching foward with the off hand to pump it like a paintball gun or to reach up and overhand to rack it like a regular handgun.
More importantly I want to commend you on your rendering skills. You managed to make the muzzle crown look like it's dusty....
I had a "Paintball God" moment once.
Like Al Bundy's Polk High football moment I live on
for the slim chance of repeating that one time
miracle in some small way.........
