    Got them Friday.

    Painted the beacon, and had to do some minor surgery on the BM pack to make it fit.

    You may want to extend the "nut" for the beacon about 1/2" more for the slightly thicker packs.

    I had to cut into the pack to allow enough thread up to connect it. Also, in the BM pack, he has metal rings embedded there, so that had to be chopped up a bit to allow for the width.
    Wasn't too bad though.
    End product came out pretty good.
    will have to post a pic tonight.
    thanks!
    Stonerook,

    Thanks for the advice,
    I did not know BMs was thicker at the top. I have a MLC V1.0 and its only about .100 thick. I will keep that in mind on future runs.
    If anyone else has troubles or comments, good or bad, please let me know so I can get it corrected.

    Your pack looks sweet by the way

    Thanks,
    -Tim

    Yes...shoulder studs. Those may be a little more difficult to machine.

    Sorry to hear you had to do some surgery on the JP. If anyone would like their Pack supplied with the 'D Rings' in a different position please let me know, I can position them anywhere you like.

    Anyway, I also got my beacon and stabilisers, what can I say...? very well machined, flawless. Thank you.

    Dang, why is it taking so long for you guys and gals in Canada to get you stuff .

    I sent it the way you guys told me to label it . They went out on the 26th of September. Heck, TK2647 lives in GERMANY and he received his before you.
    Weird....

    I've been off the boards for a while working on Commander Gree. Are these still available?? I was waiting for Russrep to do another run but he never answers me. These look great.
