No the machinist I am working with on the prototype is a pure artist and VERY slow.

Once the proto is done I will need to test it. Then it will get scanned and turned into a CAD image so the CNC machine can make it.

That FN Tri-rail does look good.

I don't know if it looks good enough for that price though...

Yeah, mid-$200 was about the price Monolith started with their tri-rail when first purchased, so I can see the official FN product would be a tad higher in that respect. I also noticed the pictures of the tri-rail on GB is thinner widthwise, and has a longer bottom rail than the Monolith version. Given these dimensions, I can't wait to see EA's version once it's completed.

I like the longer rails & smaller size of FN's version (more 'streamlined' I guess you could say) but I also like the molded piece Monolith's trigger guard area better than the nuts&bolts on the FN. Its a trade off - for now... (Hint, hint Jay :D )

I have found the FS2000 tri-rails for sale for $188.00 at Barts Sports World in Maryland. There phone number is 1-800-836-0956 or 410-761-8686. I called and spoke to AL and ordered 2. There is a backorder on them right now but call them and get on the waiting list for that price. Email me if you need any help ordering them.Mike
