September 2021 update: Record demand has meant larger runs of each component to keep the pace, and most parts are back in stock in good quantity. There should be no gap in production on these for quite a while. That said, I still have a waiting list going back to the late Spring. I hope to get even in the next couple of months, depending on the volume of new requests. But having unsold units sitting on the shelf may not happen again for a few months yet, pending the volume of new requests.
Many customers are on the waiting list, so as always I will be working up from the earliest dates. If you believe you are on the list for the Standard Crankfire, please contact me again. Follow up has to work both ways in order for me to provide product and sometimes I don't get a response. See the Waiting List notes on the Home page for more detail.
Features: a six-lobe cam; a disengaging, sprung "dead man" crank handle; new CNC machined components. Mounts on your 1919's pistol-grip back plate. The handle can be swapped from left side to right in seconds.
Spade Grip Crankfire
With all the same features of the Standard model listed above, a full Spade Grip is incorporated into the Crankfire frame. These had not been made for several years, but we reintroduced this to the line at the SAR Show in 2016. Grips are walnut and the spacing is standard, M2HB specs.
Notes for September 2021: New made back plates are here, and the buffer parts supply is resolved. I have about 35 names on the Spade Grip Crankfire waiting list now, as it keeps growing. After filling the oldest requests, I ran out of the handle parts, including the wood grips, until I can get more made. It might be Fall before I have all the tubes, screws and wood back in hand. Everything is taking longer, the shops all swamped with work.
If you have inquired on this model in the last year or so, check in with me again to confirm you still want in. See the Waiting List notes on the Home Page
A few more M2HB Crankfires were assembled in July. There are only about six names left, and I've run out of the parts sets for this model. New parts will be produced again, but not until after summer. If you have inquired before, it is a good time to contact me again. If interested and not yet on the list, let me know via the website contact page. All parts need to get run again, and it helps to know what the demand will be. I might be able to get another small run done, to fill short term demand.
A6 Stock Adapter
I have been making a few of these, on manual machinery. Too time consuming, can't charge enough to make it worthwhile. Next step is to have my CNC vendor turn out a bunch. Price will probably end up around $50-$60. I'll update this when I can. They are not in much demand, so bear with me until I can prioritize these again.
