Powerlyte Autococker Hinge Frame?

Hey guys. I was just wondering if any of you had any experience with the Powerlyte hinge frames for an Autococker. I may be interested in picking one up, but thought I'd get your opinions on them. I've owned an Eclipse Blade in the past, and have messed with the crappy WGP frames, but never seen or heard anything about the Powerlytes. Let me know what you think!

Thanks,
Anonym

I found a website that is selling them new for $19.99. I'm half-tempted to pick one up. I have a nice slider on my Evo, but I wouldn't mind having a hinge for an option now and then. Sound like a good deal?

I actually preferred mine to an Eclipse MkIII when I set up the springs to be a bit lighter. I was able to fire it much more rythmically, a sort of cocker-walk if you will. I prefer the looks of the Eclipse, but the Powerlyte Axis hinge just seemed to have better trigger/grip geometry.

They made some without the <to me> irratating drop down portion. They are good frames, I had a powerlyte merlin and it had one, if that gun didnt have the little drop down nub ida prolly kept it.

Yup, Cunha has the link. I'm still debating it (actually, trying to get some cash together for it), but it sounds like a good purchase. I haven't used one with the drop down portion, so I have no preference from use, but if they had given me the option, I probably would go with the standard-looking frame.

Guys, read the fine print on that site. I've seen a person buy from them and recieved only the frame, no guts.

***Note***: Grip frames come with Extreme Rage Sticky Grip, not black wrap around in picture

Autococker Frames do not come with trigger plate and spring, must use stock compenents

All frames do not come with mounting screws, must use stock screws
I would suggest you get it from Powerlyte. The one here also doesn't have that annoying drop down part.

I just sent them an email asking if it was without any internals or if it was just without any stock-compatible internals (ie: sear plate and spring). Wouldn't be worth having if it didn't come with the trigger. The other stuff is easy enough to find, but I doubt anything on the market is compatible for a trigger.
