Need a picture of a luke's custom cf conversion

Does anybody have a picture from the back showing luke's rf/lf conversion to the slightly offset center feed? I would like to see what the sight picture is like. I'm tossing the idea around of maybe just maybe getting one or getting a ule body. I just really like the look and feel of the two twistlock barrels(armson, sp all american) I have so don't really want to go to the pricier ule body. I know I should just forget it but having picked up a pf left mag the sight picture of sighting down a unobstructed round body to a round barrel is just really nice. don't tell my micromag, but I might just like the classic a little bit better.

The mag virus has got me bad. I want em all. Put me in a padded cell, because I can't make up my mind and I'm going crazy. ahahahaaaaaaaa.....

One of these?



It's tilted a little; I usually play tilted a little more left. The vert feed mod works tilted right with a gravity feeder as well. This is an old Halo that I grabbed for the pic. The inside tilt puts the feeder in front of your forehead while leaving a line of sight down the barrel. It's also easy on the wrists.

yes, that's exactly what I was looking for thanks. Not sure if I would prefer a right side like yours or a left side. hmm. Anyways the picture is quite helpful. What sort of feedneck do you have on there and how much did it cost you if you don't mind my asking. I saw that lapco makes a nice one like that for about $25 that I might pick up for my vert feed sterling. The centerfeed conversion is cheaper than a ule body, but shipping and feedneck costs can even the price difference out a bit.

So when you say it feeds tilted right with a gravity loader does it not feed well tilted left? I shoot righty most of the time and like to tilt the gun a bit left and I use a gravity loader for the most part for limited paint and compactness. So would you say having the vertfeed on the left side would be better for how I shoot as far as feeding issues are concerned?

Close, 05/06. They need some ~.022 shim brass to fit just right, but they are nice. For a while, the 05/06 ccu kits would pop up on ebay for $20 to $30. I kept the feed necks and gave the little parts away.

The lapcos are nice and need no shim. They're black with no lever.

The vert mod shoots great tilted either way. I didn't mention left tilt since that should improve the flow. I only mentioned the right tilt because I've been surprised that it still feeds well with some right tilt. I know I don't tilt as much right, but it's not as sensitive as I thought it might be.

that is nice! I wish I seen this a month ago when there was a very nice classic mag with that body and an X-valve. The gun was sold before I got to see addition pictures.
