I thought so. Thanks. I'm just looking at the STL files and was considering trying a few improvements to modularity. Before I reinvent the wheel, I thought I'd ask if you already tried these things and found it just wasn't structurally sound, or some other reason why it isn't already like that. For example, the stock mount looks like a slight adjustment could make it attach to the rail by the same interface as the rails use to attach to each other. Making that change would make rails 1 and 2 interchangeable. Similarly, instead of building the front sling loop into rail 3, it could also attach by the same mechanism as the stock mount or rail interface to the front end of rail 3, thereby making rails 2 and 3 interchangeable, meaning there is only 1 kind of rail. Alternatively, the sling loop could be attached by a pic mount to one of the rails. Or, instead of changing the stock mount to match the rail-to-rail interface, I could adjust the rail interface to match the stock mount interface. Did you already try any of this and find problems?
