Shockwave Raptor Grip Makes Cameo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes



In early 2013, we were contacted by an armorer for the Hand Prop Room in Los Angeles. He mentioned they were building some custom props for a Planet of the Apes sequel and wanted to know if we had a Raptor Grip for the Remington 870. I told him that we didn’t have any production units for sale at the time, but could send him a couple of R&D samples taken off of the RTV mold. I didn’t get too excited, as we occasionally supply items to various movie outfits—and never hear anything more about it.

This past weekend, my wife and I caught Dawn of the Planet of the Apes—and there was the Raptor Grip R870 bigger than life. :) Almost famous. LOL

Shockwave Makerbot 3D Printer Up for Auction

So we’re putting our 3D printer up for auction. Own a piece of firearms history. ;) It’s an old Makerbot Cupcake. (What a name. Anyway…) It’s not much to write home about. But “back in the day,” I thought it was pretty cool. Hey, I built it myself. [Beats on chest.]

It was working until a couple of days ago. Then I had the bright idea to rebuild the “printhead.” In the process, I messed up the Nichrome wire that heats up the nozzle. It’s a half-hour fix. (You’ll need a new 6″ piece of Nichrome wire.) But I’m just not up for it. (Too many other things going on.) Once you replace that, you’ll be up and running again. We’re throwing in with the Makerbot a newer PC power supply, one almost-complete spool of 3mm ABS filament, a small spool of white ABS filament, all the extra little bits I have left over from when I built the “Grey Ghost,” and whatever else I can think of to throw in the deal.

Believe it or not, we used this Makerbot when we were prototyping the Raptor Grip for the Mossberg 500 and the Remington 870—and also the ZMAG follower. Gun parts! (I’m sure that still gives little Bre Pettis nightmares. LOL) Anyway, this little Makerbot was a trusty friend and business partner. But we need move on to bigger things.

Direct link to the auction. Yeah, ebay’s run by a bunch of bedwetters, but it’s the best venue for auctioning off such an item.

Be sure to bid early and bid often. ;)

Handful of ZMAGs Still Available

We are down to the last few ZMAGs available for sale. Get one while you still can.

First Batch of ZMAGs Almost Gone

Response to the new ZMAGs for the M-11/NINE has been great. And to all those who have purchased ZMAGs, thank you. We enjoy making quality products that customers appreciate.

That said, we are down to our last 60 magazines in this first batch of 1,000 mags. The next batch should be ready in about four to six weeks.

Thank you again,



Instructions for Using Shockwave ZMAGs

The M-11 firearm. Perhaps the only gun that needs instructions for using standard box magazines. Because of the shoddy manufacturing of these guns, there are three items that you need to check before using your new ZMAGs:
1. The ZMAG is designed for the standard SWD grip. If you are using the excellent Lage grip—and purchased it before December 2013, you will need to clearance the grip for the mag stop on the ZMAGs. (Lage grips purchased after that date are modified at the factory for the ZMAGs.) See the picture below for an example of the notch you will need to file on the inside front of your Lage grip to accommodate the ZMAG’s mag stop.

2. Next, you will need to check for obstructions in your magazine well. Any welds or other protrusions that are thicker than .010” (the thickness of two sheets of paper) can hang up the ZMAGs when inserting or removing them. See the weld that’s been filed down in the picture below:

3. Lastly, the ZMAGs are designed for variances in mag release and vertical bolt location (upper receiver to lower receiver fitment). See post below. As such, there are guns that will “wear” the very tops of the feedlips the first few times you rack the bolt. This self-clearancing is normal—and by design.

The M-11 by their nature are very imprecise firearms. We had to design the ZMAGs with this in mind—and incorporate this self-clearancing feature. If your magazine looks like the one below after racking the bolt a few times, it is completely normal.
