Something similar to say an old trracer/phantom frame so you could have m16 grips or use a 45 adapter plate if you wanted to run them that way.
My hammer's still coming via the local shop, I'll see what I can figure out when it comes. Otherwise, if someone has a phantom and a hammer 7, how well would the frame match? sear etc would most likely have to change, but if you could use a frame, or modified one it may cut down on cost.
As soon as I can dig up my Phantom parts, I will look into compatibility.

If I were to go the route of using a DAM magwell, I would create a frame that has the correct sear/trigger geometry and then use the front half as an adapter to allow the magwell to fit onto the H7 body.

It might work, but based on handling both objects, I suspect it would be problematic. The additional distance would like cause feedin issues, and broken paint/FSRs.

Assuming the owner has no issue with me taking it apart again, I can get you the dimensions.

Earliest I will see him will be Wednesday.

Yes I want dimensions on the DAM mag release. I have DAM mags so I can figure out the well but I really would appreciate dimensions on the release parts and how it works.

Wonder what the price tag would be on just the DAM mag well

I think I posted this on another thread... I am looking into getting the magwell as a replacement part. I will post information as soon as it is available.

I am working on getting a hold of the DAM again. We will see what the owner has to say.

Ty

Edit: I spoke with Dye regarding purchasing a magwell. The person on the other end of the line informed me that they are not currently in stock, but on order. He was unable to locate a price, or a schedule for availability. It seems we need to just wait until they are in stock to find out :/

I'd be interested in a hammer 7 that took DAM mags. Some one want to machine a body that will work?

What thread is the mag to hopper screw? Would an automag thumb screw work?

10-32 is pretty close, but you will see a little looseness in it, maybe not when it is tighten down, but its there. I used a 10/32 knob i got at the hardware store and threaded a m5x.08 into it as my speed wheel.

well I guess I will have to get some M5x0.8 screws since thats not a size I keep in stock normally. anyhow how about this mod



it looks like the beginnings of a CCI adapter but I call it an emergency feed port decided to put it in because I played last weekend and destroyed some paint in my mags making proper feeding impossible. I ended up flipping it to loader and hand loading each ball civil war style still managed to get 1 person.
