Was originally quoted at 10 when they did the prototype sell-of a few years ago, but one of mine predated it then one more appeared. Could be more that just haven't materialized yet. I think Tracy just forgot how many were in that run - who can blame her, they've made a lot of markers over the years, and even more prototypes.

The STO threaded bodies were all "Satin Black". I predict that Ultra Nickel is going to become one of the more desirable bodies in years to come though; they only did the Micro2000 and eMicro and it seems like every one I see pop up lately is bubbled and chipped right around the area where paint builds up.

Sto threaded only done all in black? Nope.

Here's mine with a redz clamping feedneck on it:


Still all in nice condition, and I have re-installed the stock benchy frame since this picture was shot.

You're sure that's factory finish, or factory threads?

Update time...
Well, turns out the neck on mine was pressed with no weld.
I heated the body with a propane torch, threw a few ice cubes down the feed neck and it came right out.

I took said neck and burned the top part off.

then I took out my single point cutting tool and turned it to 20 TPI.

Now my A+ machine cocker clamping feed neck fits my mag. Mission accomplished, piece of cake.

Yup, neck in freezer, body in oven and the two became one again.


When I pressed the neck in, it was just a RCH off, but I had and 11/16 straight shank chucking reamer that cleaned up the burr perfectly.

So, was the recess in the body fortunately the same size or a little larger than the cocker feedneck?

Nice work, but I can see 2 easier ways to do it.
