Can't figure out who fabricates this little jewel. It slide into the T Bracket that holds the Preston MDR?

I bought mine from Preston. It's the whole bracket though, not just the shoe though.

Ramon,

GPI sells a couple of brackets with shoes to slide into the newer DB3's (or maybe its still an option? I bought my DB3 and then later bought a new T-bar that accommodates those shoes). The one you show looks like their Bartech shoe which attaches to a Bartech receiver. The Preston version is an "H" shaped bracket that screws to the four corners of the MDR and has that shoe at one end to slide into the aforementioned T-bar. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks gentlemen. Alec your description makes total sense. The dovetail for the Bartech just so happens to accomodate the mounting holes on the motor driver for the AR with a little adaptation.
Thanks for all of your help.

Yes, that seems to be the case. Call GPI and see what they have.

Yes, GPI carries the dovetail but is currently backordered. It's $50. It's not featured on their website but you can ask them for it.

The holes in the dovetail match the "PRO" bracket that Jim Bartell provides with his receivers.
