Hey guys,

I will absolutely share the "wealth" and I will have extras and I will let them go to you guys but not until I get my 40X delivered and squared away. I don't have a good way to keep track of who spoke first (I've also gotten PM's and emails) so let's do this officially in the "parts for sale" forum after the 40X's arrive.

I can list them "CMP style" and wait until you all go to work and are away from your computer so the lucky few who are online will get them (like the USMC rifles) :mad:

OR, I can list them "Jeff style" and place a post about a week before listing handstops the EXACT time and date I will list them in "parts for sale" forum to give everyone an equal chance at posting the first "I'll take it". ;)

I am also looking into casting some replicas of the early 40X aluminum style if there is any interest. I may do a batch of 10 and see if anyone wants them. You would have to find a source for the screw and swivel though. Just a thought.

Regards,

Yep, thanks again Presidentg for posting your original pic. I would not have been able to cull these out of the big box of handstops without your and Rick's helpful information.

I think you should list them Jeff style :).

I have a proposal for you. If you can give me some very detailed pictures of that handstop and dimensions I can draw the hand stop in solidworks (3-D design program - contact me via email if you are interested) and have a local CNC shop cut them, evening including original markings/etc. But powder coating them black would be on everyone else.

Excellent! Proposal accepted, I am familiar with solidworks but don't have it - Email sent.

Thanks to both MiDodgeguy and Jeff.

As a newbie to 40X, it will be a great service to me and, I am sure, many other.

MiDodgeguy and Jeff,

Just another example confirming what I already knew about the caliber of guys on this forum....top-shelf. :GS:
That's the type of can-do collaboration that made this country great. The best to both of you, and keep me informed on your progress. I have a 40X heavy barrel reserved with paperwork in the mail, and with any luck, will be a first-time 40X owner needing a handstop!
Cobra.

We will keep you all updated as we progess. Hoping to have something in the works by next week.

Ditto, thanks for your efforts, guys.

I will take that little round one if you don't need it.

Thanks Steve
