The intentions were to do something that separated us away from the standard look but also for function. Most of our designs are driven from competition shooting and the desire to try something different. The longer mag well is great if you are a mag well griper but it was originally designed to push against a baracade without touching your mag. The bottom of our mag well also has a nice large chamfer and acts like a funnel for fast mag changes under stress. Its dang near impossible to miss. The rest of the look was just stepping out of the box a bit and getting creative. I know allot of people think its just too far out there and dont like it, but there seems to be a ton of people that do like it allot and the rest seem to be warming up to the idea of something different.
