We have extended the size of our first run of uppers, simply because we're waiting for engraving bits for our lowers.

    Moving forward we are going to start doing larger batches to minimize down time due to changing out fixturing on the CNC and as we bring more machines online.

    First batch of uppers and lowers was dropped off for vapour blasting today, and should be ready for anodizing on Thursday!

    If I'm not in the first batch, what do you think will be the time between batches?

    The 2nd way larger batch is about 1/3 done already so hopefully not long.

    Also as soon as we can we are adding another CNC. We need to finish renovating our shop and running power. We have plans of adding up to 4 more machines.

    Great to see an Alberta company doing well! With the expanded capacity, would you be interested in making alternate chassis for SKSes, or would that be too risky in the current climate?

    No joke, if well made and the price is right, I would definitely take at least three. Perhaps more.
    I suck at responding to PMs. Don't take it personally.

    A CNC machined chassis is utterly wasted on an SKS and would be too expensive.

    We do have a lot of projects we would like to do.

    A Saskatchewan company made a 3D printed chassis for the SKS, which used some AR parts like the stock, trigger group, and magzines, but according to some forum members, they're a bit sketchy, and they wanted a fair bit of money for it. If someone who know's what they're doing can make a nice, durable product at a reasonable price that does not require permanent alteration to the SKS, they would likely do quite well.

    We aren't doing an SKS chassis. We can't do it for a price people would want to pay. There's no point putting a $500+ chassis on an SKS.

    They system you are referring to replaced the SKS trigger with an AR trigger. That change effectively deleted the out of battery safety of the SKS tilting bolt.

    Thanks for the clarification! Looking forward to whatever other projects you may have planned
