So I go Turtle/Black magic conversion

I started out with an AIM body. Nothing great about it. So I ruin the feed neck by stripping the threads. So off to Turtle Innovations it goes for feed replacement and Black magic conversion. Comes back and still looks to Boxy for my taste. What to do. Bug Rainman till he answers. Get an OK from him then I delay and finally send after I see the Spiminator. Few days later I get an email that it's done. I guess sometime down the road I'll owe him a big favor or parts. So here is the results. Now should I go on an all out build or Straight pump?
Later,
Blackrain

How it started life. Just a raw body.


So I strip the feed neck,get a new one. Have a Black magic conversion done from turtle cocker.





Still looks way to boxy for my taste.


So off to Rainman it goes.





So here's where it is now. What to do is my dilema. Thanks goes out to Rainman 229 for another excellent job. Best part about this project is, No Beaver tail,cocking rod or back block.
Later,
Blackrain

Go all out. That thing looks like it was meant to shoot really really fast, so let it.

Does it still look to plain? For some reason it seems to be missing something. Maybe cause it's not together.

I do agree with you being a bit to boxy for our tastes, but other than that, dead on. Besides needing color on the reciever it looks good.

Got it back today. Looks very nice. Bolt looks even sweeter in it than I thought.I figured out why it looked so boxy. The pictures were close ups ,giving it that "Wide load look"lol.They say the camera adds 10 pounds lol.
