Mag Extentions Are in Stock!!!!
« on: November 16, 2007, 04:43:00 AM »
[size=32]

Good news the extensions are back for a while. Check www.idmparts.com for more extensions !![/size]

Here is a first off extention just to help get the shap I want.




The computer rendering is what the final one should look like.
It should let me get my third finger fully on it.






Any thoughts would be great!!
Thanks
Bryce ;D

I have large hands.  Less curve on the extension (like on version 1) would make it easier for me so the extension doesn't end up poking me in the third finger.
Also, any hope of a small palm swell on the grips you are developing?

thanks,

Thanks for the input Mark!
I think at this point I will be making both types of extentions. For the resone you stated plus a few others.

As for the grips swell yes on my 2nd design I have countour in both thr right and left grips. That version will be down the road a while as Im concentrating on the flat grips for now.
I will keep posting to keep you updated.

Thanks

I've heard the Pearce grip extensions for the Kahr will work on the Rohrbaugh magazines with a little modification for the heel release.

I put my 6rd MK9 mags next to my R9 mags and they look almost identical in shape and size.

Well here is the first extention just of the fixtures.
I deleted the rads because it keeps bigger fingers on the grip.

I will be having the first batch black anodized next week.
I set aside a few to keep bright alu finish in case someone wants that look.
I hope to have the first contoured extention next week also.
Any thoughts please. I can change things at this point, but after the weekend, it will be harder to do.

Thanks for all the input it helps.
Im cutting parts while Im postin this.
Here is a few live shots.





Im still working on Pricing, should have a final cost after Anodizing.
my worry is The pricing is going to scare everyone off. :'(
It is taking better part of one hour per part to machine.  My normal shop rate is $80.00 a hour. I just cant justify 80 for a extention!!lol  But if you were to take this part to any machine shop in the USA it wold cost you over $100 :o
I consider My Pup a work of art from a machining aspect. And so I have tried to keep the Up to that standard with these parts. I hope those of u that find my pricing ok, also find my work is worthy of being on a gun like the R9 ;D

The countoured extention are still another concern all together. It has a total of 3 setups to compleat This of course ads to the time on the cnc. This ='s more cost. But I will try to keep it as close to the first extention as possible.

Thanks for looking
Bryce

PS
Would anyone be interested in red or blue anodizing??

I'm up for one or two - in black - depending on the price. The brothers would be missing a bet if they didn't eventually offer these in glass-renforced nylon, especially the contoured version.
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.
