Can a machine shop make the SL900 3" and 3 1/2" ready?

Thanks,
John W.

We have been intermittantly working on a 3" conversion for the 650. It is very doable. Not so the 3 1/2".

Good Morning Dillon,

You mean - a cartridge reloader - the 650 - ; there is a 3" conversion - for shotshell - being developed?

Thanks,
John W.

OK - sounds great - can't wait until it is developed.
What about 3 1/2" Magnum. I am pretty proud of my 887 Nitro.

No way to load 3 1/2" shells on the SL900. Not enough height available in the frame to seat wads.

Some parts are made, but still some things to iron out yet. R&D has been focused on some other stuff recently, so it may be a bit before they return to the 3" project.

Dillon,

Can you elaborate on what R&D is working on?

Hello Dillon,

Any news? Would like to know if the 3" is available.

Would like 3 1/2" but I've asked that previously.

Thanks,
John W.
