alternative frames?

i have been looking for a single trigger frame for a spyder for a while now with little to no luck but i have a feeling 32* makes a pistol with a frame that should fit on a spyder. if this is true please let me know if not let me know if there is a pistol frame that will fit on my spyder. thanks

Try digging around the misc parts forum, Taso used to make a humpback frame that took a single trigger for the spyder, I think you may have some luck. I swear by the sliders they made for 'cockers, and I have a spyder I"m restoring that has a hump frame with a cut guard. But that trigger profile may not be for everyone. IIRC a lot of those semi pistols have spyder-compatible frames like you asked about.

Watch E-bay as well. I also prefer the single trigger frames, so I lurked around and found one there....it's a DYE .45, seems pretty solid so far. They do show up...but they aren't exactly common to see up for sale.

Actually I bet you could call DYE up directly and see if they still have any. They might be willing to let them go cheap.

the other option is to scrounge around for M16 trigger frames, will work on your spyder regardless of age

Bob Long also had a run of Battle Grips, either single finger or double, with the finger grooves in them, i have a single finger one on my bob long millennium and im not letting this one go lol.

If this is for a true Spyder frame then keep looking. If it's just to get a single finger frame that'll work for you then expand your search out to include old Piranhas. The single finger frame can be modified quite easily to work. Leave the rear hole alone and file the front slightly into an oval to let the screw work.

If your Spyder is a new skinny striker instead of the old school fatty stricker you will need to modify the spring loaded catch on the trigger itself. It'll mean removing the little rocker and using about one stroke of a fine file on the heel that limits the extension of the little catch. Go easy, a little bit is pleanty.

I already modified a two finger Piranha frame and make it work on a Spyder Pilot.
