I know and they were bad. I sent my back to be replaced with a better one and he ended up grey sing my money because none of them met my standards.

Maybe take a look at how the KAM 86 frames have been selling lately, or how Luke has put up interest/order threads for various parts as maybe examples of how to make "just enough" parts without being stuck with a pile of waste
So far there has been far more demand for my KAM frames then I ever expected. Ive had a total of 50 made so far ( the breakdown is on AO). Only 2 have been resold that I know of. Ive still got a list of people waiting for the next runto be finished soon ( i hope). You are also very right. There will be a point where demad falls and I will be stuck with some for awhile.

But yes ao is finicky. I learned alot from the agd y grip mess were everyone wanted one but once they were made no one bought.

I think price is a definite factor as well. $165-200 is pretty steep and going to out most people out unless they are really high quality. With used AGD pump kits selling I the $130-150 range you may have to adjust pricing. XM15 kits sold well because they were very reasonably priced. Personally I like them due to simplicity. The RM design had the most potential but I agree the last run was very poor quality and rather than fix the issues be just issued refunds. I would agree though, why not repurpose the kits for their original purpose and test th waters to see how well they sell?

I would love to see you make kits, you make quality stuff so for me that isn't an issue. I think those that are in the market for a kit and more custom parts are crazy not to hope that at least a small test run doesn't happen.

Here's something that might get you an extra customer. As pointed out in Blackrain's thread, there's no ready solution for pumping an RTpro/Tac-one rail.

It has been done, but I've never seen a kit/service bundle for it. Seems like some short mounting screws would let you use the existing holes to mount an ASA/pump bracket, especially with 6 screws (one side would be enough), but I need to look at that.

rainman already did that for the rtp rails and sold very few. basically just milled the mounting spot of the kits flat and using a longer pump rod.

If you would make one to AGD specs and keep it under $200, I'd give you my preorder now.
