i;m sure there are alot out there that'd take one..myself included but..consider this, is it really worth the work and pricing to get a new complete frame milled for only 25 people? 250 would be more of the scale needed to bring prices down IMO..... given that there is alot of milling to be done to make such a frame, and then the finishing work, such as cleaning up, deburring, polishing, and anodizing... what would the price range be for 25 units as opposed to 250 units, or even 2500 units? I am aware that phantom 45 blocks are around $39 dollars each, and then theres the Benchmark model for 40ish+, but those are mass produced units made in the hundreds, if not thousands..... if one were to make a tenth of the theoretical number, wouldnt one have to raise the prices tenfold to maintain the cost of labor? (a machinist can make 100s in one day on a CNC machine or make 10 in 10 weeks on a manual milling machine... theoretically.)

Depending on the price I might take 1 or 2.

i'd be interested too. price is going to be the factor for who is interested and who is not though. you need to give us some pricing.

You might also get a price for some 45 blocks or whole 45 grips with the trigger guard milled out of black Delrin, saves the cost of annodizing and doesn't show minor scuffs and scratches.
I tried a Phantom 45 block on mine, it bolted on ok but I was not happy with the fit where it met the frame.
The price would be a major factor for me. Maybe Mongo,CCI or CCM could do some runs of SI parts

Price would be paramount because Bushmasters are selling for under a hundred bucks now and if your grip costs 50.00 or so, then why go through the effort?

True about the $$ but you NEVER see a 45 grip go for under $150.All M-16 griped guns go cheap i notice trust me I have many.

Well. I bought an unibody older bushie with constant air adapter, no L stock, 45 frame for something like $75ish....can't remember exactly when, but it was in 2007 or 2006.....and I'm buying it back from whoever has it. (I know who, I aint saying it until I get it in hand lol) I could offer the frame from it for measurement purposes and such.....
