Probably no more than a couple hundred per year. I guess it is possible to sell two versions.
If you’re using this for an upper stage you are going to friction fit or use some other means, with no thrust ring at all so the aft end of the motor will fit into the booster tube, right?
H13 thrust rings- My opinion: sell with the thrust rings. This will result in fewer issues, toasted rockets, and warrantee complaints from inexperienced users. Those who want to use the motor in a fashion that requires no thrust ring will know how to remove it.
The caveat, however, is whether selling with a thrust ring will delay the time to market... does a thrust ring mean that it would have to be re-certified? (yes, I'm salivating already).
Does cutting / grinding / sanding a integral thrust ring that is glued in with the nozzle turn said motor into a ex motor ?
