XDrill

Could these be leaked photos of the new Accu-strut "XDrill" in full production trim? I believe they are! Testing is the next step- I'm hoping the design has most of the accurizing effect of the original solid strut.

UPS will not ship firearm accessories internationally.

They tell me it's $15 to drill those holes, so that sets retail price at 109.95. If that process step comes down with volume, I'll try to pass the savings on to the customer as I've done in the past.

No worries. I have been sent some rails and stuff for my 10/22 and mini 14 from the states but that was probably with a different carrier.
Lucky we are a practical bunch down here so can make stuff ourselves
Good luck with your new product.
If you invest in a c&c machine it will drill the holes for you, and make the struts

We do have CNC mills, but something's gotta pay for them.

Exactly it's just a bit of pipe with some holes, could go on anything

True that they are not cheap to run, especially once you start cutting stainless steel.
