Rail Milling question
looking at different Rails some from AGD others After Market,
i have noticed that some Rails have most of the internal material milled away
while others are little more than an aluminum bar with a slot for the sear, sear axle hole and mount holes.

other than the sear, sear axle hole and mount holes is the rest of the Rail un-necessary?
as many of you know i will be mounting several AutoMags into Wood Stocks (using ULE or Tac One Bodies) so the grip frame is completely removed and to be honest most of the rail if it can be cut away would make my life easier.

Are the only really necessary parts to the Rail the sear slot, sear axle hole and mount holes?
Can the rest be removed entirely?

I'm pretty sure that the milled away material was not useful, else the gun wouldn't work right.

I've had a couple ULE rails, and they have all performed perfectly.

If you are using a twist lock barrel, you will need a place to mount the twist lock thingy.

no, using AC threaded barrels.

You will need something to hold the body close to the valve..that is the rails secondary purpose.

you could figure out the right place for your pivots and use the wood stock to mount the trigger sear instead of mounting the trigger on a rail.

Like you said

There is a pin hole for the sear pivot

A Twist lock assembly if you use it

And the valve is held to the body via the rail.

I'm interested in finding out a few things about the "SLUGGO" bodies as well;
  1. Are they pre-threaded or can you cut what ever barrel thread you like? (I'd like to use A5 barrel threading in place of Autococker barrel threading if possible)
  2. Does anyone offer machining of these bodies as a business/hobby/"I can do that for ya" kind of thing?
  3. What is their availability like?
  4. They are Aluminum correct?
  5. What rail do they need?
  6. How long over all are they?

1. I have seen them blank, so you can thread what you like. But I'm not sure about the spacing between the bolt and barrel end
2. Look on
3. Xmagterror on AO makes his own slugs to sell ($150)
4. Yes
5. I think they can work on any rail. I think
6. Don't know
