Element's new product

Recommended Posts

Hi, everybody! I've come into contact with the people of Element, a company that is not only making great accesories available for really low prices, but are already on the same quality-level with the most reputable manufacturers, after only a few years on the market.

 

Anyway, Element has asked me to skoop around a bit and find out what products players want to own. Products that Element would consider making.

 

So, I thought we'd do it this way: you want something made, post it here. Ill send a list with everything to Element, in case something interests them already. Afterwards, Ill pick, let's say the 10-20 most doable items and make a poll, to see which ones are really sellable.

 

Either way, I think this is a great step in the right direction and I hope more manufacturers, especially gun producers, will start listening to the players (as Army did and now we have the Kimber warrior).

 

My candidates are:

 

- Surefire X200 (with optional seperate decals for those with trades issues)

- SR-47 conversion kit. This couldnt cost more than 60$ (just the body and hop up chamber)

- Magazine adapter for UMP magazines (.45 cal) for M4s and G36s.

- AK body with low-profile M4 stock adapter for that Mag-K

- Fake double-sided charging handle for the above

- 7.62 mm coversion kit for M249 (just a new feed tray cover, feed tray and heavy barrel would suffice)

These and a Streamlight TLR1 or TLR3

We could do with more compact pistol lights in the airsoft world. All we really have affordable replicas of are M3's

Didnt think the SR47 would be that popular! i think Hurricane's price is the main reason we hardly get to see any.

 

Keep the ideas coming, guys.

To be fair, I think Element should be more bothered about getting their current items out the door to retailers first. Most products are and have being out of stock for a fair while now!

 

ie. their KAC RIS, MK18 RIS II and their KAC type suppressor.

At the same time, their "R&D" peeps need something to do :P

Indeed true, but how are they going to fund their 'R&D' peeps if they aren't receiving monies? ;)

 

It's more a case of 'Copy&Develop' ;)

A C-more that doesn't switch itself off at the slightest hint of a breeze?

 

 

 

 

Failing that, if they want to make some real money - Nice ABS slides for TM 1911's. Think about it. Kimber/Springfield/GSR traded ABS slide that works in winter? There's a trick being missed when it comes to plastic pistols - They work in the winter but you can't customise the slide or frame at all without serious work.

Interesting stuff, guize.

 

Complicated conversion kits are probably out of the question as of now. Hopefully in the future.

 

G36 flashlight handguard MAY be in the works (Element or other company).

I could imagine more than a few WE owners being interested in a "winter" slide for their 1911s

The price of the Hurricane also makes it rarer...which means those who have it wouldn't have a unique piece if a clone came out. As much as I love the SR47, I wouldn't want Element to make one.

 

Also, *fruitcage* the AK body...just because...you know. I'm mixed on the Lighting Bolt, just because the handles are so damn hard to source.

 

I'd be very much up for UMP-9 or MP/10 magazines.

That too - There's also the fact that plenty of people clone 1911's and slides, so it can't be that tricky. Plus, ABS is the best thing to make a slide out of if you want pure performance... A decent range of decently made ABS slides would sell well in cold countries, and there's IPSC and race guns to think about...
