Here's some "early bird" shots of the prototype which is suppose to be for my blaster. My original idea was to machine a replica of an original stylus part and then test fit it in an original model part (flash hider). I discovered if I used a 5/8" drill bit (which is the inner diameter of the smaller end of the model part) the stylus part fit like a glove and sticks out of the end at the correct length, which is around 3/8" or 4 "fins".

So that it fits the replica Ruger correctly, the part needs to be cut down about 1/4" with a notch added. A "collar ring" will also need to be added. This may be something that can be machined into future parts, so it's just one piece.

Vince I’d be interested in the “tip” that protrudes through the flash hider, let me know. Thanks!

Here's a photo of the first barrel extension prototype that includes a ring. The next prototype will be one, solid part that includes the ring:

Vince, Do you still have room on the waiting list? If so, i'm in for a full kit if that will be available.

Barrel extension prototype #2:

Rear:

Installed:

One small item I forgot to include was a threaded hole with a bolt for easy installation. Because the Ruger MK I replica comes with a set screw for the existing barrel, this can easily be used with the Barrel extension.
Price for the barrel extension will be $60.
This puts the kit at over $128.

I am estimating that a kit could run about $170 at this point.
If anyone on the waiting list for a kit doesn’t think that they will be purchasing one please post a reply or send me a pm. Thanks.

This will be a two-part mold so we can get all the nice detail on the flip side.

I'm also pondering the idea of molding the sight rod mount to keep the price of the full kit down, but I may put that idea on hold for now because I don't think it's going to effect the final price that much.

Sight rod prototype with Reade model parts:

And without the parts:

Price is set at $15 each. Once I do the actual run, I may be able to get that price down a bit, but it may even out once I add the mount.

Sight rod with mount:
IMG_1426.JPG


The mount turned out to be much thinner than I had originally realized, but despite that, I was able to machine two grooves on the top and bottom to help fit the sight rod to the gun barrel.

Mount only:

Flip side of the mount:

Sight rod and mount:

Price for the mount will be $10.

Next up for machining will be the rear sight along with a price for the kits.

A mold for the pontoons has been completed. I'll be doing test pulls this week.

I also came up with an alternate way of machining the sight rods that may lower the price and provide a better way of attaching the model parts. I'll be working on that this week as well.
