Those powerlyte grips from First Call are RT Classic. They have a big hole where the rear thumbscrew goes to accommodate a banjo bolt.

I like my benchmark frames but prefer a double trigger.

I'm a fan of the dye frame I have on my mag. Nice look and feel.

You can fix that "Big Hole" with a LVL7 power tube spacer, just press it into the hole and 'press-toe' smaller hole...

The powerlyte grips really are the best for the money available. I've set up several mags with them and had no complaints.

I have to second the Powerlyte. They give you a different trigger pull (squeeze vs. break) than the original frame, like the other ones you have listed. The safety can get annoying, but overall it is a great frame. Also, if memory serves, they have 4 bottomline holes.

They are for an RT as said above, but a small copper pipe spacer (cannot remember the size, ask Robertsr ) takes up the space fine.

The benchmark frames and powerlyte frames make the trigger feel exactly alike. I would go with whatever finish matches you marker best if money is not an issue.

For finish I'm looking for black, really looking for a single trigger, as of Thursday I have a Cerberus Innovations pump kit on the way, going to send the rail and body to Andy on AO for the milling(seems like rainman is pretty backed up atm) and then send the body to lukes for some feedtube modification+powdercoat

I'd go for the standard Benchmark frame, but that's just me.

Don't get me wrong, I've used and love the Powerlyte frames, but I'd just prefer the Benchmark over it.

I've never used the BM Perfect frame though.

I've got a standard Benchmark on my Mag and I like it more than an intelliframe. That's just me though. Nice and smooth with a Classic Valve. Oh, and I've managed to RT my valve with it
