Gargoyle hopper breach mod
 
Hi, I made a new breach for my Gargoyle.

IF YOU ARE A STOCK CLASS PURIST PLEASE AVERT YOUR EYES NOW !

I decided I wanted to try using my Gargoyle with a hopper. I made a new breach and added an angel threaded clamping feed neck. I have not decided how I will mill the outsides of the breach yet but its functional so I am sharing some pictures now. I will add some field time comments maybe next weekend when I play again.

Cheers

They'll find me hanging in the garage.

Please let them know why.

Cool start there Adam45. I am anxious to see what kind of milling you do.

I'm definitely with you on this one. I think the gargoyle/phantom/nelson type platforms are incredible for stock class. If you want open class then I would suggest building a sniper. Just my own 2 cents, but I think it plays to the strengths of each that way..

is the cage for more stability?

just trying to understand parts of the mod - I would assume the cage replaces the block that exposes the bolt - a plug coming in from where the stick feed would be could then hold it in place fairly stable but not sure why that looks like a cut original feed - /praying that its not... =P

I like flexibility but I could never carve #33 - now if the piece was a 2 piece drop in change (replacement block with feed on top + plug rod) I could do it for giggles like using my carter direct feed block on my buzzard.

But at the end of the day I am not sure the balance and feel would influence me to go that route - would have to try it in hand to see in final judgement - but #33 just points to wickedly naturally so much so that a friend who swears by sniper2 platform markers took it in hand once - thought about where the shot should go - shot it exactly and gave it back saying
"No more - I don't want to be enslaved"

=P

interesting idea just not sure on implementation

Did you cut #0001's feed tube in half??? Oh, oh god.

The block just replaces the original and the feed is still in one piece as well. Safe and sound.

The new "feed" holding the breach in place is a cocker threaded barrel cut to length ( the original feed tube is cocker threaded ). I will find a way to cap the new feed and that might become part of the new milling. I could have used a RTR phantom /cocker adapter, it also works well.

When I decide how to mill the block it won't be much of a departure from the original. I like the look of the gargoyle, I just wanted to try this for a while.

Someone lock the Garage please! Perhaps this will turn into an interest thread Rodney ? its hard to say.

By the way. When I say milling I mean filing, sanding, drilling and dremeling. I don't own a mill, I have access to one but I made this by hand with my own hand tools.

Stitch 03-29-2012 10:23 PM

that is certainly a lot of patient work for it to be that smooth and well shaped

Awesome innovation! I'm glad that Rodney can now safely walk away from the crates!
