Default Carbine MakoLock update.

The orders have been coming at a steady pace. I ask one thing from all those sending orders. PLEASE include your e-mail address. I try to keep you informed on your order and send a tracking # when it is sent, usually a few days after receiving your order.
If you only THINK you included your e-mail address with your order, e-mail it to me. I have several orders that I can't send info to, no address.
Thanks.

Default MakoLock

I was able to try mine out yesterday as well:

Impressions:

The unit is well made of high quality materials with a level of craftsmanship you don't see much any more.

The fit is perfect. With the bolt forward the unit is retained with the carbine in any position with or without the magazine in place.

Shaking the carbine or tapping the MakoLock with a cleaning rod, with or without, patch does not dislodge it.

In short the unit does everything its supposed to.

Its a winner!

Jim

We have modified the MakoLock to work better with the type V op slides. The 1st pic shows the early version and the problem with the longer tab. The second is the modified newer version. You can cut it down yourself or send it back and John will do it for you. I'll pay shipping both ways.

When I first came up with the idea of what is now called the MakoLock for the carbine, one member thought it was a long over due tool but he thought it might be better with some type of seal on the chamber end. It actually seals just fine, unless, of course, you use soaking wet, dripping patches and brushes on your pull through cleaning cable. One suggested I figure out a way to install an "O Ring". Ain't no way, said I.

Working full time in an ACE Hardware I am surrounded with really cool "Guy Stuff" and am always looking for something I can use in my hobbies.

SO, I found a product that can be used on the MakoLock to better "seal" the breech end if you feel the need. I have been playing with it this weekend and it works.
It's called "Plasti Dip" by Performx. I think there is another product called "Dip It". It's the dip that guys use to coat screw driver/plier handles and such. Pics are below.
I used 3 coats with 30 min. between coats. Let it dry over night before you use it.

You can do it your self or send it to me and I'll coat it for you for the cost of postage. For those who are ordering let me know if you want yours coated and I'll do it before shipping for a buck ($1). Gotta pay for the dip! Just say "Dip it! and I'll do it.
