Very cool.
Personal preference, since you asked:
1) Ejection Port Cover: I really like this but for a clean look I would rather you kept the design only on the inside, and left the outside (closed position) blank. It would be a "suprise" that way.
2) Valkyire Tactical Skull Mag Release Button: I think I would buy this in a second for my .22lr. but how much would it have to cost? Looks like some work went into it.
3) For the mock can and 10/30's I really like the fact you have them marked. I personally only run 10/10's with my bb just because I don't feel like explaining my rights, or my weapon, but this is a good alternative. What do you think about using a less contrasting writing color, like gray? May look more tacticool? Just a thought but thanks for the great ideas and offering something new.

First, very nice work.

Second, is the ejection port cover available showing different cailbers? I have an AR15 in 6x45mm and it would be nice to have that on the cover. Oh, and without the skull...

Very nice work. I 2nd the motion to have the outside of the ejection port cover blank. I like the mag release button. Would you be able to make a mag release button with a bullseye, kind of like the RRA one? Maybe replace the skull inside the cover with a bullseye also?

Nice work on the skull!!! I think it's going to be a big hit! (i think it should be smoother?)
the dust cover is also a innovate ideal. I like it! I haven't seen anyone do that yet, definitely a new spin on old stuff.

cool, thanks for the input guys.

port covers:
okay, so for the port covers the general consensus is leave the outside blank. got it. yes, i'm actually planning on doing all the different AR caliber markings for them, .22LR, 9mm NATO, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, 7.62, etc...
estimated price: $15

skull buttons:
yes, a CA legal P50 replacement version will be made as well. it was very difficult for the CNC to cut so much detail so small, but i'm going to try to perfect it a bit more by smoothing it out a little more.
estimated price: $15

design color:
the logos and text are laser etched, so what you see isn't straight up white, it's more of a light grey.

thanks for the input. these things will all be tweaked a bit further. i have 3 more parts in the works that i'm very excited about, stay tuned!

Put funny messages on the inside, leave the outside blank.

Things like "Suprise B*itches" and what not. Play off the fact that the dust cover doesn't open until the weapon fires.

I'll take a few dust covers, I like the fact that they let you personalize your rifle.

Keep us informed of any new stuff.

The skull button is a winner. Very nice work.

Invert the skull button so that the skull is cut into (an indentation into) the surface. It'd make it easier to grab/depress, and a BB version could use the nose-hole.

Digging the ideas. I'd be down for an order of the ejection covers, 10/30's, and the mock suppressor is nice as well. As stated by other members offer other text options for the ejection covers. That way we can all have something personalized to make it our own firearms. Thanks...!

+1 to the skull button. I like it.

I like the skull on the ejection port cover, but not the company logo. Then again I've never been a fan of advertising for a company unless I'm getting paid.

Excellent work!

Question: Will the Skull Button fit an Aero SPR-2?

10/30's look awesome. 10/20's would be nice too.
Either way, you'll probably end up draining my wallet one way or another. I want all.

Great work!

What is the ETA for these mag release buttons? I'm putting together a dedicated .22LR and would like the custom look of this button.
