    Currently dialing in the trigger geometry on both triggers, should be ready for production soon.

    Sounds good. Your triggers have always felt nice.
    Thanks.

    I have some very minor adjustments to make, then I need to setup new machining files for production and were off to the races!
    Thanks for everyone's patience on this project.
    I'll send out private messages to everyone this weekend to get your final orders dialed in so I can set up invoices.

    Thanks

    Only one trigger per frame was included with your purchase but you can add extra triggers to your order. I'll include that price in the PM I send out this weekend.

    Doing any special engraving on the panels like a bunch of tiny Z's or any of your previous AGD-esque designs?

    No current plans but I'm sure I could be persuaded.

    So I had to machine the LPR housing down because it was a smigen to large in diameter because it sits so far forward in the frame.

    Stripped down weight of the Z2 is 5.4 ounces.

    Any of you 21 want something other than those huge, blank, smooth grip panels? I know I'd like some textured design to give my digits extra traction while making the Z2 even more unique.

    - Like one of Luke's previous designs: all Hexes, AGD Lion, AGD Hex Circle, et cetera.
    - Or perhaps something new and original (please excuse the quick phone drawings):

    First off, I think it needs a design running perpendicular to the grip hold orientation to give some friction whilst holding.


    1) I like this with a short, wide "Z2." It can be smooth with just the Z-2 inner area lined to give a small friction area, or the Z-2 smooth with the surrounding in a Hex pattern or such.


    2) A bigger Z-2 on an angle and again either the characters or background being textured?


    3) Maybe Z-2 within Hexes on an angle with a textured background?


    4) Or put the characters vertical so it's easier for Z virgins to see and try to comprehend.


    5) A tall Z-2?


    6) Something like this - a bunch of rows of continuous Z2's - but executed much better?


    7) Perhaps little Z2/Lc/X/Hexagons arranged in a pattern like diamond plate steel or the Louis Vuitton logo?
    ---no scribbles here---

    Luke told me there's time for this if something can be agreed upon since the panels will be the last pieces produced. I know it's a long shot to get a group consensus but maybe something will grab Luke's attention. So maybe then the option to go bland or graphic on your panels.

    C'mon, let's make these boring panels a little bit more special for the Z2! (And save me another $60 for custom engraving...)

    I wouldn't mind something cool. Maybe a run just for the first 21. Z2 on textured background.

    I'm in for any design, but my preference would be the straight lines. Those seem easiest to match with multiple different builds.

    This might be cool, add some arc to the lines and it would be a fine line engraving..

    If you guys can settle one a single pattern I'll do it for free for anyone on the list (That wants it).
    So throw some ideas out there, I would prefer some type of geometric pattern.

    the staggered lines are cool. I'd lengthen them a bit so that the top and bottom ones extend a bit closer toward the end of the panels and the middle one lengthened just to keep the look. and if you wanted to get fancy and put a little "Z2" inside a hexagon at the bottom rear of each panel, that'd be pretty sweet.

    Yup. That's the engraving I had on my old Z panels. Maybe spread a bit wider across the panel this time.
    Again, the design goes with almost any build.

    Also, I realize I'm talking a lot, but I really will go with anything.
    The big diamond is also cool. I'm trying to imagine it slightly parabolic so it kind of flows with the curve of the trigger.

    I like what's on the green Z, it's along the vein of what I was thinking in my sketch 1 above.

    However, maybe connect the central line to the others with a short diagonal? Connecting them actually makes it a combined, stylized, elongated Z and 2.

    I agree, definitely wider spacing but also a little shorter

    So we're on our way, LPR housings were machined yesterday and I started the first and largest program on the frames this morning. I'll be running that first program for several days. Still a ton of work to do but I'll stay on it 7 days a week until it's done.

    I am making extra so these will be a stock item.

    So this is a mockup of the previous design like on the above green Z.


    How about just two extra little lines like this?

    I like that, I can see the "Z2" in it.

    You guys decide, just don't take to long.
