I can see needing 2, one for the house and one for the shop.

 

If you are thinking about a production run, I would like to talk about having these to sell on the APEX web site.

Richard

Thanks Richard. That is a real complement. We will see how it goes and keep the offer in mind. At the present time it's  a one off, but making more is certainly possible if there is a real interest.


I have spent enough time "adjusting" the feed lips on all sorts of magazines to appreciate a mandrel made to make the task easier and do a consistent job.
I like the idea of carrying parts and tools to keep our guns running better.

I added the new manufacture M1A1 barrels based on feedback here, and hope to soon carry the "generic" 50 round drums that seemed to be well liked.

Great piece of kit.
As a product name how about:

MAG-IC

Just an idea from a new but dedicated English Thompson magazine collector.

Well Tizzy’s it looks like the current count is a dozen and a half members are in for your tool. Not to mention Richard at Apex looking for a bulk order to sell on his website.

What say you...?

I'd like one if reasonable. I don't have that many mags that need work so a bit less would suit me, but I understand the cost of small batch production.
Let me know!

Hope everyone is patient. This is not a mass produced item. I am doing them in my spare time and I want each one to be as good as possible it takes a little tweaking to get each one to be just right with regard to the feed lip height.  I will keep everyone apprised.
