    Will does some great work. The custom 18650 and C cell holders are fantastic. If I ever get around to taking some pic's of the lights he made for me, I will post them.

    If you are a fan of the short Mag's, don't hesitate to get one of these.

    Can the Mag be bored enough to fit a Fivemega 3X17670 adapter?

    Yes, of course. The real question is: Does William has the equipment/setup to do a tri-bore to fit the FM 3x17670 adapter? Then, the answer is no. But, Jesus Hernandez can do try-bores - he is also here in the great state of Texas:

    Will, I need my Jade D Mag cut and bored for a Fivemega 4x14670 adapter please. I would also like to have the switch assembly cut down on both ends, and the tailcap cut to lower the spring height. I plan to use the KD shorty tailspring. I want to make it as short as possible.

    Ok, I finally took some pictures of the Mags Will made for me. The first in the pic below is a 1C for a AW C cell, the next is a 1.25D P7 that was built by Will w/ a D2FLex controller that he made Delrin sleeves to hold either a AW C cell or one 18650 cell and the last is a 1.5D that Will bored to use with either a 4xAA holder or a 4x14670 holder. All the work was outstanding and these were made on his old lathe. If you want to see the complete P7 build, search for threads started by Will. It goes into much more detail and has a lot of pictures.

    Could I get 2, 1 blue, one red, bored for FM 4AA-1D adapters?

    1 question: do you also do the tailcap mod to have the spring sit at the bottom?

    Absolutely. 1 blue 1xD, one red 1xD, both bored for FM4xAA adapter, deep tailcap mod

    => Post #1 updated.


    NOTE => I now have enough bodies to place the order. I will likely place the order tonight, so if anyone else wants theirs, better post quickly

    Will, would it be worth your time for me to add another digital camo, but have it left as 2D with just the switch mod done?

    Of course, not a problem, except that the Digital Camos come as a 3D. If you need a 2D, I can cut/re-thread the 3D into a 2D. Let me know so that I can add it to the list to purchase tonight

    Unfortunately, now that I went to place the order, I found that the "C" size is currently only available in Black. If you want a "C", it has to be black. If you want a "D", I can still get all colors. Please do let me know what you want.

    If you are willing to wait longer, I might be able to find that one locally, but it might take a while.

    I have been looking for color C M@g bodies and not seen them. Did they make them or not?

    Alan,

    I have used them in Black, Pewter, and Purple, but the supply is not consistent.

    I will check the local stores to see if I can find a Purple one for tx101 - are you interested in one as well?

    There is also another forum member that might be able to get them locally as well
