Will Holy Rails be Included in the US Rail Making Effort?
« on: November 05, 2017, 02:44 PM »
Hi All:
I recall that rails are, or will soon be made in the US in variable (custom?) lengths. Are there any plans for machining holy rails also? I'd like to get a 75" rail for my TS, and someday for an LR32 if it's in the cards, but the only holy rails available right now are the 55" (have two w/o the holes) and the 95" (too unwieldy, plus the $346 punch in the gut).  Wondering if I should hold out a little longer, or perhaps start doing sit ups every day to start the conditioning process.

At this point there are not plans to produce the LR 32 "holy rails" in the US. It's feasible that it will happen at some point in the future, but I wouldn't advice delaying a potential purchase based on it.

Thank you @TylerC! I was hoping to avoid the conditioning via sit ups, but I'll get started maybe after the new year kicks in. Or perhaps I'll just go with the 55" and see how far I can stretch it.

In all seriousness though, much appreciated.
