But even with zero markup, they want over $70 a piece to print the carbine insert piece - and you need 2 of them!

    It does take about 9 hours to print one, so maybe that is why it is so expensive.

    ok, thanks. Are you willing to release the Cad/print file? might have to buy a 3d printer in the future to make a few of these as well as other nicknacks

    Thanks in advance

    Wood insert templates

    For what it's worth... While on the particular subject of cartridge box inserts, I'd humbly like to offer an alternative.

    The attached pdf files (I couldn't post MS Word documents) that give the user templates for .69, .58 & 44-40 inserts, should they want to make their own custom inserts.

    If you can't open pdf files, email me ( rdfreeman1906@gmail.com ) and I'll send the files as Word docs to you directly.

    Granted, wooden blocks are NOT a "sexy" as modern 3D printed inserts; however, old school wooden blocks get the job done, esp. once they're all set up to your personal tastes.

    For me, I primarily use my carbine cartridge box for all matches, with the exception of the Sunday Musket Match.

    I'm sure the 3D printed inserts allow for this, but the custom made (drilled) wooden inserts afford the user the ability to "customize" their blocks by varying the depth of the holes to their individual preference. Some like one row at a certain height, others like alternating depths for every other round. Bottom line these are good starting points to at least set the pilot marks for holes that are to be drilled. You can explore / test any combination of how rounds are staged for effortless/thought free retrieval from your cartridge box - YOU have to determine what works best for YOU.

    Be advised the L x W x D of the block(s) may need to be tweaked so as to conform to the interior dimensions of your cartridge box.

    Finally, results may vary. I am NOT a wood working guy, I had a friend help make mine. The .69 one was esp tricky with the extremely thin walls btwn the stacked rounds within such a confined space.

    I hope this is of some help to some folks out there looking for a worthwhile "project" in preparation of next year!

    Stay well - stay HEALTHY!

    I think wooden blocks are superior since they are a period technology.

    I just lazied out. Push a button, come back some hours later and done.
