    @taudevgroup, how about a GoFundMe or some other no obligations type of funding to facilitate the project?

    We are not taking money from anyone for any reason unless I have a product in stock and ready to ship. People saying "no obligation" and actually meaning it are entirely different things. Of course some, perhaps most, would mean it but it's still not worth the aggravation caused by the ones that don't.

    This is really just my curiosity, so sorry to add another question, but... I understand why the Glock, S&W SD, PPS, etc. designs would work with an SCD. I guess I'm lost as to how it would work at all on a fully tensioned striker gun. According to my limited understanding of the mechanics of those guns, I thought an SCD for them was impossible, not just more difficult or complicated.

    And for the record, I'd buy a handful of PPQ Gadgets in a heartbeat, and promptly add a commensurate number of PPQs to the safe. It would fix Walther's mistake of not offering a PPQ with a PPS trigger and striker system.

    A Glock-style slide cover plate based SCD for fully tensioned striker designs isn't possible; however, there's more than one way to arrest trigger motion in a gun than stopping the striker from moving rearward.

    I really wish a SCD was available for the CZ P10 series. @taudevgroup, is this possible? If so, how many pre-orders would it take to make this happen?
    @taudevgroup, OK, so what I think he’s trying to get across is “what do you need from us to make it worth it to actually produce this product?” Group buys and the other usual routes seem to be out. But we like your product and we want it for the P10s. I will buy two. Pretty sure there are other serious buyers as well by Clusterfrack’s responses. We just don’t know what metric you are needing. I’m hearing that you just don’t want to diverge from Glock. Which is understandable. But “not soon” gives us hope!!

    Not trying to pee in anyone’s Cheerios, but an over the thumb development cost would top $50k based on what he reported with the Glock. I can line that out if folks are interested, I do it for a living.

    If you seriously want it — and you should , I wouldn’t carry a SFA without one — you should try lobbying the OEM to license it, that it’s a competitive advantage over Gaston if they do. Get a PD to say they want it. That sort of thing.

    I'm sure I could write a longer explanation explicitly listing which models are supported by which SCD, but I don't think this is a "problem" that is going to be solved with more words.
    Apologies for being obtuse, but since I own these for guns I don't even have yet, do you anticipate the Gen 5 will work for the soon to be released updated Gen 5 Glock 22? If I understand correctly, they will be larger slide ala Glock 37 so not sure why it wouldn't but thought prudent to ask...maybe don't know as it is presently vaporware.
