I have a rocket that seems perfect for mini rail buttons. The railbuttons.com 'washer-barrel-washer' variety with a 4.8mm barrel specifically. Do we still have a mini rail (mounts on the Jawstand perhaps)?

We have at least 2 maybe 3 mini rails available.

CMASS is incredible! Is there anything that the club doesn't have when it comes to launch equipment?

Ok thanks. Turns out that rocket is not good for these particular mini buttons - wall is too thin and thus the well nut would stick out too much, making tightening the screw impossible. I may 3D print some mini rail buttons with a countersunk end (like most 1010 buttons) to solve for this.
