Just got word that one will be in stock for me at Badlands in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

So stoked.

Agreed. It's not elegant, but oh hell... Nevermind.



Agreed, though having used one ('cocker to A5, Phenom) I have no doubt most people that complain about them the loudest have no real experience with them instead relying on what they "think" to be true. They work quite well. Mine was used in combo with a Gen 1 .678 Eigenbarrel. It worked fantastically except when using the most brittle paint, that often wouldn't survive the cyclone anyways.
The adapters for the A5 is very different. There is no "adapter" really, as you know; but a complete replacement of the threaded nose piece in cocker threads. This allows the ball to be inserted into the barrel from the breach as normal.
Every other adapter works like a short barrel back. Imagine running a barrel back that has a wider I.D. than the barrel front. Soup city. This is the potential problem using these adapters can pose when used in conjuction with a barrel that takes inserts; or any barrel with a small I.D.

it's fine. aftermarket parts makers can probably sort that out on their own. that's how it worked back in kingman's heyday.

One little quibble, yes the a5 cocker adapter does replace the nose, but the bolt does not seal up against it when its in the forward position as there is a gap. I tried one and had issues. To my knowledge the only a5 adapter that allowed the bolt to go all the way forward was the ion adapter.

Is it me or does the valve spring appear conicle in shape?

You did that with an ipad shame on you.

Other than that it looks like pretty standard Nelson stuff.
