    Real easy. I find CAD programs a steep learning curve.

    Done.
    Just use Google sketch up and down load a .stl file converter plug in.
    Probably not as precise as a proper CAD program, but for something like that more than accurate enough.
    I designed a replacement Tikka magazine follower in Sketch up and it turned out mint.

    Yup that's what I'm using.
    They're precise, some of the prints are accurate to less than 0.1mm.
    This block is meant to be 40mm

    Looks good, the accuracy of the prints I had done was similar to that.
    What printer has you got?

    My apologies guys, I've been super useless as of late. Could rattle off some excuses but I'm just lazy and hate going to the post office.

    However, they're on route to @BRADS so if you're still keen can you please PM him with your address etc so he can sort out payment and do one trip to the post office.

    Cheers, and sorry for the delay.

    Rod and Rifle did a review on it. It doesn't work well with Suppressors. Doesn't work well on a range with other shooting stations within 2m, doesn't work with FMJ or cast bullets reliably. Also eats batteries and harder to setup

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Probably why I would never waste my money on a rod and rifle magazine. (or any hunting related magazine)

    All I can say regarding every issue you say they have printed, is it is utter bullshit and who ever did the review is either an idiot or has another agenda.
    Maybe they had a faulty unit but were too dumb to work it out?


    Think about what they said about FMJ projectiles and then how a radar works for a minute, and then get back to us
