I am waiting on some rail stock form brownells. When I get it I will be going down there to talk to him. Daug I will get your rail back then and send it to you. He should be down scanning it in and getting a feel for what I want.

I am still working on the prototype. I can't apply 100% of my time on it though.

It's there but production is taking up time. My Mini red dot site base is proving to be allot more popular then I thought it was going to be. I am waiting on another order and after that I need some custom work for my production machines.

Time is what it takes and Time I don't have enough of.

For now yes.

We are just to small and WAY to busy to do every thing we want.

It looks like I decided to come back at the right time. So for those of you that don't remember, or weren't there. I was the original designer of the Monolith Tri-Rails. After designing those and going into production. The demand became to great to keep up with. So we approached Magpul to contract the manufacturing of them. Magpul then instead offered to hire me as a designer. They also said they would produce them for all of you and the rest of the world. They had me redesign it, it looked and felt better. However nothing has been done with it up to this point. They do own the patent on it though, pictured below. My name also appears on it as well. Here it what the original looked like. If I were you guys, I would keep calling them asking to produce it. They are only holding off because they don't believe there is enough sales. At one point we were going to do it, but everyone stopped making noise.

Now as far as making a trirail version, hmmmm.

I had both versions factory FN and the other scanned it. We have mapped out the design I want. Machined aluminum and closer to the FN style but with longer rails. It's just that we are small and just don't have the resources to do everything we think up all at once.

Making our one bullets in house was a big step, plus in a month or so our complete line of extended PS90, TR and ring sight, side rails, quad rail rail setup and custom bolt weight.

I will keep you in mind though.

Though not as cool as the one we'll hopefully see from Magpul, we do have the FN ones on our site. Price is $142.04 plus shipping.
