Yes, with a lathe. It is a bit of a pain to clean a direct hit, but it has been good with CO2. The groove pattern is set so that the z-pin is still supported and I stayed off of the front where the porting is inside.

The fins were an experiment I thought of around '92, but couldn't do it until recently. I suppose you could do something like an AA reg in aluminum for a very light reg, but an x-valve is hard to beat on hpa.

I never thought much about cutting on a stainless reg. My lathe is small, and as long as I'm hacking up an aftermarket reg, the price of an aluminum one is worth the trouble.

Ty needs to wheel out his SFL pics. It's a good example of milling a reg. I would think you could mill a classic aluminum back with some fancy stuff now. The back end doesn't carry pressure anyway. Maybe some day we will see a karta-type classic reg.

indeed I'm just thinking about lighter and lighter for a micropistol I have pictures on on MCB somewhere or maybe on AO, things were slightly stalled until recently when I figured out how to put a dropout changer in grip(theoretically) we shall see when I get the parts in. Basically I will chop and cap and tap the top of the dropout changer shave it down as small as he can then run a hardline from that up to the valve. Have my friend mill, drill, grind, lathe, whatever those machines types do to earn my money to get the drop out changer in there. I've got some metal grips coming and I am going to have him mill those out to keep the grip to accommodated the increase girth then cut out the left side grip to drop the used 12 out of. finish it with a 1/4 or 1/2 turn slot in the bottom of the changer and a plug at the bottom of the gun.... We shall see how it turns up, I'm gonna do a walk through with him when I finally get the parts in.

I edited my post on your kapp drop on AO. I have an old 3k flatline that needs something to do.

Here's Ty's SFL. I hope it's still his. You can follow the URL around for more pics.

That's why you gotta find the bottom to a Black Ice regulator.
