Hi all,

I'm new here and mostly interested in finding more info on the Kintrek KBP-1 magazines. I just purchased one with no mags for a song and a dance (it was a bit smokey, involved in a house fire...no damage  Grin). Great little rifle, just want to shoot it as intended. I'm well aware mags and parts are non-existent, but I'd like to change that.

My hope is to find someone here that is either willing to sell or loan a bad magazine (one that the spring nub/pin broke off of). I want to reverse-engineer the entire mag body and utilize 3D printing to make a new one. I'm thinking the spring can actually be reused, if the attachment method is changed a bit. I've never seen one in person, so it's a bit challenging to decipher geometry/dimensions. In return to all the Kintrek owners here, I would of course post the 3D models for your own printing pleasure. If someone were kind enough to loan one to me, I would certainly be willing to print them a few courtesy mags, IF I can get a working design. I would also like to reverse-engineer the clock spring/follower and make those, in addition to redesigning for a conventional coiled spring with follower and baseplate. I also hear the front and rear sight towers are commonly broken and destroy the value of the rifle. Might be able to 3D print these if there's enough need.

I do reverse-engineering of aviation components at my day job, so I am fairly confident I can make this a reality. Is there anyone out there that might be interested in bringing these mags back to life? I know this is kind of a long-shot, but I figure this forum is my best bet.

I'm no help on your quest, but welcome to the forum!

The next time you think everyone should be equal in outcome, read Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron".  If you don't fear that kind of world, please don't vote.

New to the forum and also just getting started 3d printing. I have a Kintrek I recently picked up with what seems to be a functioning magazine. You said you're looking for a busted mag, but if you don't need to break it I'd be willing to send mine your way for the project. I need to get a chance to test the thing and make sure it works first. Shoot me a DM.

I also have a KBP-1 and have read that one of the Armscore 22 magazine's would work with a little mod to the lock in point but have been unable to find one to try.
