Cutting rail down

Post by luckymike » Mon Feb 04, 2019 8:26 pm

was looking for a micro 315 but came across a killer deal on a 335.I'm a machinist by trade and am thinking about cutting rail down myself and relocating the holes.from everything I've read the only difference between the two is a 1/2".does this sound right.

Measure twice and cut once. I have cut down two mainframes myself with simple tools without issue.

Yes, a gen2 335 and 315 are 1/2 difference.
Here's where you may have a problem. There are three holes under the riser, and cutting it down by 1/2 is not going to let any of them line up. So you'll be full of holes under there. Pop your riser off and you'll see what I mean. You'll end up with 6 holes +/-3/8" inside of 3" . Not much meat left.

If it's a GEN1 335, then you just need a gen2 riser and your already there

For what it's worth, if you advertise that you want to trade rails with someone who has a 315 or GEN1 335 I'm sure your have a taker in no time .

:thumbup: if gen 2 rail is 1/2" longer than gen 1 rail. I would trade my micro gen 1 rail.
