Exclamation Solo pinky extensions for factory mags

I am new to this forum and would like some input on our newly machined pinky extension for Kimber Solo handguns. I machined a mag extension so people can shoot their pistols with a full grip. I own a Cnc machine shop and came up with a proto-type. I would like to manufacture and sell this to anyone interested. Your input and comments are appreciated. Attachment 39362

I like projects like this, but can't see the attachment. Something about notifying the administrator.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois HURCO1. I'd suggest contacting an administrator before advertising your products for sale on the forum.

Thanks for the welcome. I may be down loading the pictures the wrong way.
I read other post and found people were showing there projects. Did think is was not allowed.

I don't know for sure what is and isn't allowed, forum ownership has recently changed. To the best of my knowledge there is nothing wrong with showing off a project. Advertising something you're manufacturing for sale on the forum could fall under different rules that's why I suggested you contact an administrator for clarification.

That's nice work, Hurco. Looks good. What kind of finish did you put on it? It matches the frame nicely.

I powder coat the mag base plate and pinky extension satin black. I also may anodize hard coat black. It will come back flat with no semigloss.
