Oh wow, that is a LONG way off! Nice work getting it where it needed to be.

I use the factory curved lever and that's what didn't fit well. But FWIW I also read a review of the aj stock/hoop lever combo that said they weren't too happy w/the fit of the hoop lever to the stock, either. Others have reported no problems so it may have been a run of out of spec stocks. It also could be that I'm overly anal about such things- it's not like the stock as delivered would have prevented me from using the gun w/it installed, at least as long as I was careful closing the lever else the lever could hit the trigger causing the gun to shoot! So instead having it bother me every time I shot the gun (which is daily, weather permitted), I went ahead and plugged the old holes w/dowels glued in place then relocated the holes correctly so things fit- and looked- right.

Yea, the lever doesn't do much for me either. I've never used it, but appearance wise I'm fine with the plain one. Too bad the stock doesn't fit better. I wonder how it is with the plain lever...

I'd like to try a set, too, minus the flash suppressor. Wink  I like the Chief aj stock I have, but it did take quite a bit of fiddling to get the holes positioned correctly so the lever fit the stock inlet. I posted about this already at THR so I won't rehash it here, but suffice to say the stock I got was not 'plug and play'. Personally I don't care for Chief aj's big hoop lever but that's a personal preference thing.

I agree, no point to send one back and forth. I guess if he doesn't go through with production the Chief AJ stuff is still an option. I'd rather had what Trevor has come up with though.

I'm sure we can work something out. Get in touch when you feel like it, but I would suggest to not buy a gun and ship it to me- much cheaper for me to pick one up here, then there will be just shipping one way. Odd that I don't see the RR online at WM, but they usually have them on the shelf.
 
When I communicated w/Trevor re the furniture, the deal is that he's gaging interest before committing to a production run, and obviously that makes sense. The parts shown are 3D printed prototypes (ain't technology great?) and from what I gathered final details like removable or permanent stock cheek riser and I'm sure other things aren't yet finalized (I voted for a removable/replaceable cheek riser and he's also leaning that way I believe). I mentioned two other forums where he could ask about interest in the parts. So I'm hoping that there will be a run of the parts but it could be a ways down the road. 
 
He said the lever will be made of glass filled nylon and it would be able to handle the added cocking effort from the spring preload. I estimated it to him to be 30% more than unmodded.

I have your email address and probably phone number around here somewhere. I'll get in touch for the details. If you felt like picking up a new RR and rodding it out I'd gladly pay you for your trouble to do it and to send it my way. Time is valuable and I'm more than happy to compensate you for your troubles. I can pick up the kit from Trevor and add that later on or if you want you can do that as well. I'm flexible. If you're too busy or not interested I totally understand. Please don't let me put you on the spot. Lastly, I'd pay up front so you're not out any cash while you do it.

Well, if there's anything I can do from my end to make that happen, just let me know.
 
 
ETA, a heads-up about contacting Trevor- I tried to contact him by using his site's contact page but didn't hear anything back, so earlier today I emailed him directly (T@TGWMS.com) and he emailed me back. So using email to communicate looks like the best bet.

BurghDude, Reach me through my email address from my profile.

Yinz guys are right. The new guns are fun to mess with 'cause the investment is low amd there's plenty of 'em to be had.
