LoL they have different standards in Europe where this was made.

I've never seen one of these for any other trigger frame other then Automags. I too would love to see pics of other versions.

Very cool. Have you tried it with HPA? The small lines with expansion seem great for CO2 and a Classic 'mag, but I wonder if it would starve an RT Pro 'mag.

I have only tried it with air. I don't have any co2. I didn't try it with a RT valve but I bet it would be fine and act like volumizer. I am sending it out to get re anodized so it should look like new.

It's stuff like this that makes me wish I was older so I could've been around for all this cool stuff. Love the look of it on your mag there.

Edit: checked out your extra pictures of it. What are the front holes for? Looks like you'd line it out to a reg and then back to the frame maybe?

The holes in the front were probably to drill the paths out. Totally awesome frame! This is one of those things that should be given new life.

these frames had internal expansion chambers. that is why the holes are on the front. i think there was cross section pic somewhere maybe in the article section of AO. i forget.

Cool. I thought guys running RT valves on smaller hose like microline had issues? Any idea on what the rough ID of the drilled line to the back is? Ie. not the 1/8" thread part, but the line leading to that.

I eagerly await your re-anno'd pics.

I can only imagine and assume from the drawings of the inside that the line going to the top back has to be small. There is potential for "starving" a RT valve but my assumption (again) is that the frame could act as s volumizer and as long as the pressure stays high then it could keep up. But I don't see myself putting this frame on a RT mag.

I'm very tempted to put it on my sydarm instead of the micro but I like my sydarm setup as is.

I took all the screws out for anodizing but there is s very small screw that is stripped and stuck under the ASA. I think the anodizer can mask it off, but we'll see.
