I just built a Twister so I wouldn't be buying one but I think making the new run convertable would set them apart.

I would like to see the Twister milling from front to back. Stopping where it is is just to UGLY.

Later,
Blackrain

- 2k spec
- Detent - cocker or wire doesn't matter to me
- Matching front/back/asa milling
- Raw (polished if possible)
- Threaded feedneck- any threading that CCM regularly makes
- Full body
- I've only seen a handful of Twisters, so I'm not sure what could make them different.

As far as price, not really sure what the bodies normally go for. I saw the post of $120 and I agree that's a long shot but I want to know what options are for sure before I put up what I'd be willing to pay.

I don't see them producing them for anything under $250. $120 is WAY too optimistic. Twisters are a rare breed, and they arent cheap

I like pblock, choice of clam or normal mill and would love right n left feed options but I doubt that would happen. As for price point, complete raw (FB, bb, Asa, body) I would pay 300 maybe 4 but would be hard presses to pay more

HEY GUYS IT DOESNT HURT TO HOPE!


I based the 120$ price figure off of pbgateway's raw black magic cocker, I do agree that its an optimistic figure, but I have no idea what they get their materials for, what it costs to run their machines, and how large of a run they plan on doing.

But, it would be wise for lapco to look at the growing pump market and get a feel for what the rest of the population would be willing to pay for a body.

They may not have to make twisters, but maybe a different milling pattern so the players have some more off the shelf options for building snipers.

I'm pretty sure the most expensive part of this will be the actual milling time, which could take a very long for one body. That time could have been spent making other parts, the price will reflect the amount of money they could make from those other parts if they would have been running them instead of the body. That's how Larry at AKA explained it to me, so I'm guessing the same would relatively apply to Lapco too. I'm gonna say they will be around $400-$500.
