    Icon5 Menzies Torch Marver Question?

    Are they still being made? I know Will doesn't make them anymore, and I think that JJ (Hot Ass Tools) is making his tools, but are they still making the torch marvers?

    Thanks Emmett, I checked around including winship and can't find the torch marvers anywhere. I guess they just stopped making them.

    I talked to Will awhile back and I think he said they were going to be brought back eventually, don't quote me but I think that's what he said. I love mine on my Mirage and want to get another when I get a Mag.

    Hey man Ive never had a menzies one, but the blastshield ones are top notch. The look very similar in quality to the menzies, and its only about 60.

    Thanks, I was just on there site looking at what they have. I might just keep my current one and buy the bottom tab mount they have and get the shield for my face.

    from dave winship,

    Rob,

    The quick answer is no. Let me rephrase that; Scott Griffen is not making them and he's the guy that has essentially taken over the Menzies production. Scott did tell me he's working on reviving the item, and wanted to know if I thought there was any demand. Your inquiry spoke to that and hopefully both our queries will spur him along. Thanks for the question.
    We'll keep an eye on it.

    Not sure if it's the same thing, but what about the graphite marvers from Weaver Industries, on EBay? Some of their "perfect tool" marvers mount on a torch. I'm very happy with the graphite marvers I've gotten from them, so far.
