Custom Printing Request

I'm hoping that someone out there would be willing to print up a part for me. I've been piecing together a DSP framed Phantom trying to make it look like a CQB shotgun and the last piece needed is the pump handle. I have a handguard from an AR-15 that I want to cut down and use but mounting it is proving to be more that I can pull off with my current machinery. Drawing of what I'm looking for:


I have a 3D model drawn with Autocad (.dwg) that I can export as a couple of different file types as well.
Anyone willing to take this on? I can offer gratitude AND money.

If you don't get anyone else to help you soon, I'll jump in to help you out. I don't have the time at the moment (personal time or printer time), but I'll be your backup

I could maybe squeeze it in.

What material/color are you looking for? Probably a black abs or petg? Are you going to use an insert for the rod?

I'm guess those measurements are in Freedom Units? I could run that for you; I've got one machine idle at the moment with nothing to do, and a fresh roll of black PETG on hand (I have black PLA+ too, if you prefer something harder but lower temperature).

I'm in no particular hurry, been tinkering with the gun for over a year already.
Probably petg? It's the stronger of the two? I wanted to go with an insert but I don't think there's room in the part. Basically I'm rolling the dice and hoping a full inch of threads will hold up.
If the part doesn't last I'm not the type to try and hold it against you, if that's a worry - I'd blame my crappy design.

Backup's always appreciated but looks like it's not needed this time around.

Haha! Yup, Freedom Units. If you've got the time I can let the other guys off the hook instead of trying to squeeze me in. Free time sounds like it's in short supply for both.

I'm assuming you want black PETG, here, but if you want to get fancy, I technically have some woodfill PLA as well. After it prints you can sand it and apply a wood stain to give it a wooden look. I don't know if wood furniture fits the look you're after, but I figured I'd offer.

The black PETG seems like the way to go. My plan, assuming I like the look once it's all assembled, is to have the metal parts Cerakoted white, plastic coated black. Sort of a Storm Trooper meets SWAT team kind of thing.
The woodfill will be sitting in my brain for a future project though.
