    Jan 31, 2009, 7:40 PM - INTEREST: EE-3 sling mounts #1

    hey guys, i was just wondering what kind of intererst there would be for the EE-3 sling mount...i would be using a stud (no, not you Dave) with a nickel ring to make these...and really, they wouldnt be that tough to make, if you would like info on how to make them yourself, i would be happy to show you where i got the hardware...i just know i have seen members looking for them, and i would love to make them for you guys...

    now, if you want to make them yourself, i would love to help ya out, however, you have to buy in bulk...so really, buy the time you pay for the 2 items needed to make these, you would have spent twice to three times as much as what i would charge for a pair of mounts...i am looking at around $10 for a pair...would not be more than that, and i would have to figure what shipping is, and of course guys across the pond there may be a little more shipping involved, but not much...

    so post here, not via pm, if you would be interested in a set of these for your ESB blaster...i would say i need about 10 committments to make it worthwhile, since i dont want to be stuck with a bunch of extra pieces...:o

    i will post up some pics of what one would look like later tomorrow...

    Interest List:

    1.) firespray pilot SHIPPED 2/7
    2.) shabad x2 SHIPPED 2/7
    3.) studiofett SHIPS 2/7
    4.) grifter COMPLETE/SHIPPED 2/7
    5.) ilikebmxbikes SHIPPED 2/7
    6.) fettfanatic SHIPPED 2/7
    7.) peregrinus SHIPPED 2/7
    8.) cupluv SHIPPED 2/7
    9.) tk1450 SHIPPED 2/7
    10.) esh X2 SHIPPED 2/7
    11.) xfettx SHIPPED 2/7
    12.) clonecollector SHIPS 2/12
    13.) godaking
    14.) darth_nickel
    15.) gcngamer128
    16.) thebushmaster
    17.) vadr_h8tr

    **UPDATE** wanted to go ahead and post the prices in the first post...

    so i am now taking payments for these...the set will include:

    2 x sling stud bolts
    -one x 1/2" wood threaded bolt (for the grip mount)
    -one x 3/4" wook threaded bolt (for the stock mount)

    2 x 3/4" inner diameter nickel rings

    i will be putting the rings on myself, and they will be ready to go for your blaster...

    the cost is $15 a set, shipping/packaging and all paypal fees included for US shipping..
    for international shipping please pm me...

    when paying, please include your TDH screenname in the comments section, makes it easier to keep track of things...

    I PM'd you earlier about my interest, and you still have it! If you end up with to little interest I'd be willing to take a second set if needed.

    What's up D! I have an ESB hyperfirm. I've got the rear ring, however I'm missing the front mount (I have a Taco sling, but haven't been able to mount it ) I'm in, pending pics, or if you think that this will work out for me too

    P.S. Thanks for calling me a stud! Or were you talking about that 22ssplt guy?

    ok guys, here are a few pics to show what these are going to look like...now, the ring that i am using in these pics is a "keyring", NOT the actual nickel ring i will actually be sending with these mounts...i couldnt find any in town, and have to order them online, from a pet bird website of all places ...now, the rings i will be getting are unwelded, and nickel plated...this way i can pry them open a little to get them onto the stud, then be able to close them back...

    i have measured one of Taco's slings (kind of a god send, Scooter, that i didnt send this sling with the blaster...:o ) and it measures right at 3/4" wide...so, i will be getting 1" rings, measured on the OUTSIDE DIAMETER, which will allow the sling to set inside the ring quite nicely...

    After you hit ten, do you have to get another ten? Or is the first ten just a minimum? I'm interested in a set, too.

    hey Jonah, i just really wanted to see if there was more than 10 interested, and i figured that there would be...it was just more sensible to get 10 for the amount that i have to buy in order to get 10 sets made...i will be able to do more than 10, and will probably just make a bunch, and have em ready to go...
