Guys, I was contacted by the man who developed this device. I like it. It is simple, easy to install, and hopefully can be produced at a good price point. That bridge hasn't been crossed yet.

It is a natural add-on if you have one of our G3's. It will allow for one hand mag drops. The g5 already has a release built-in to the adapter. It isn't needed for the G9.

Additionally, it will work nicely w/o one of our adapters if you are using duckbill mags.

What say you, any interest and what's it worth to you??

THAT is really friggin cool!

Are any permanent mods required? As much as I dig the idea of your adapter, the amount of guns I would like to be able to use my detachables on would be cost prohibitive to get the adapters for....This seems to serve the purpose pert dern well.

Tell us more! :)

JH, don't have much more to add right now. Still gathering info. How many SKSs do you have? I will make you a deal on a multi buy of G3's. Then all your SKS's would be DBL. No perm mods that I am currently aware of.

I've got a working prototype and I would love to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions on. Let me know what you like, don't like, and what you'd expect (or hope) to pay for it.

I have three that I am willing to set up for detachables, one I still haven't gotten around to the bolt mod. Everybody else stays as issued. My trouble is that the vast majority of my mags are USA metal mags...I don't relish the idea of modding them.  Honestly, I don't have a huge problem with the duckbills...sure they are a pain, but I have come up with storage/carry solutions...this mag release would suit my needs well enough. Hopefully at  price point the wife won't notice me picking up a few. :)

I suspect even a quantity discount would still get me into the proverbial dog house...I went over budget several times this year, I am pretty sure the foot has been put down. Who knows, maybe in the future...thanks for the offer!

Ammo prices being what they are, lately I tend to shoot with stripper clips...I find I use about 1/2 to 1/3rd less ammo. I mean, you gotta empty whatever mag right?  chuckles1

Very interesting. I like the idea of an easier mag release. clap1 I do own an sks that has been modified that I think would benefit from this. Ya I'd buy one :)

Had a 'talk' with my CNC guy and the originator. We are going to make both 'cosmetic' AND internal functional changes to provide for a 5 min install process. NO MODS to your rifle are needed. It will work with DBL or duckbill mags. Don't have costs yet. But more than 50.00 less than 75.00 is the best I can do right now. We will refine the costs after we have a working prototype.
