 Notes:

** The clear anodize is an anodized surface that is clear and helps protect from oxidation and scratches, and finger prints.

***These parts are not mass produced, and as such should be considered hand made.  Examples of which are: machining marks are typically visible on close inspection, and anodizing can vary from slightly from part to part.  We think this does not take away from the overall product, however if disagree upon receipt- we will gladly refund to make you happy!

 

FAQ

Q: Do you have aluminum buttons?

  • A: I do not have aluminum buttons available yet.  I hope to have these in early 2020.  Good news is, the PCB mounts to the rear housing, so it's extremely simple to swap out buttons in the future.

Q: Why so expensive?

  • A: I get it, this is extremely expensive, and I can empathize.  It's a very large piece of aluminum (higher material costs) and requires a ton of machining time.  

Q: How heavy is an assembled unit?

  • A: 1 lb for fully built unit, assuming Helder's battery is used (Reference: Stock DMG unit with AA batteries is 0.67 lbs)
