    Meeting Roger today was great. But also a sad reminder that when I first came to this state, it was the Mecca for shooting sports.

    Glad you got it sorted out with Roger. That's definitely going above and beyond.

    Thank you guys, you're making me blush lol

    We were in the position to help, I didn't think we'd have one with a long enough mag follower trip to offset the distance the lower places the bolt catch or magazine well, but we were able to find one. It was good timing too, many of the bolt catches were out of stock till a week or two ago, everything worked out.

    Based on our findings yesterday, we will make appropriate changes to ABC/R v3, the development for it was finished last year, but we're adding this one last minute feature to all 5.56mm versions. All of our products continue to improve and evolve based on real world experience and lessons, the slightly longer mag follower trip is one of them.

    1815KM (available now) and 6315KM are both Dead Air sound suppressor mounts that can do the job of extended versions of 1815 and 6315, so we're pushing back 1815X and 6315X

    1815KM:

    Still is...there's some sort of shooting match pretty much every weekend in SoCal. Glad Roger could help.

    Short version is we won't make changes that negatively impact the design and functionality to accommodate a third party part that's known to cause malfunctions on some ARs. For us to change the design (we've updated twice since 2015, so it's not about our reluctance to make changes), the effort needs to be justified.

    ABC/R v3 incorporates changes we developed since v2 in 2017. Compatibility with BAD was considered for one brief moment during the initial ABC/R development, and summarily dismissed as a a wrong direction for us, and our stance has remained the same, sorry
