Cocker bodies with wire detent

What companies produced this bodies? Other than custom bodies.
I think my next pump will have to use one of these bodies if I can find one.

You used to be able to get stock WGP bodies without detent holes, and they were often machined for the wire detents.

Try to find either a blank body, or a really old Cocker/Sniper.

Evolutions also came with wire detents, I believe, and they were stock WGP bodies.

Freeflow, CCM are probably the two most common.

Some of the older Merlins used them (F4 style, it's under the cover):

As did CCM bodies:

Belsales was the first big one on the evolutions and predators. It was also as common on early customs, if not more so then the ball bearing style. When WGP added a detent using the ball bearing to its stock cocker it fell out of favor. After that, Belsales kept using, as did freeflow, mostly on their early stuff and later lockout series. A lot of older stage 3 BBTs had it, and the AKA's and some CCMs have it.

If you are concerned with finding a good detent for a Sniper build, have you considered a Pro-Team Products body? The PTP F/X and Sleeper cockers used their own finger style detents (like are comonly seen on Micromags). They aren't wire, but they are very effective.

Not a cocker, but...

This is an older AP Sterling. The newer ones have them also, and I like the wire, or like the Pro Team, and ball system. In all, detents are always good. Even on a blow back.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
