These are not good pics - When I have her completed I will post up some better ones.

Wasn't sure how it was going to look with the vertical angled feedgate but it turned out kinda sleek looking.. The stock and pump handle still need to have the top coat applied. Going to use boiled linseed oil/turpintine to seal and then use some Casey's stock sheen on her.

Movingtarget - the brass trigger you see is connected via linkage rod to original trigger and it is 1/8" thick. The brass one just activates the stock trigger. I see no issues with this set-up but if you know something I don't (and I have forgotten most of what I thought I knew...) let me know as I will take any good advice if offered..

The detent tool I am getting was made by crazyorigin and if you look under his build (amazing by the way) he shows how it works and how it was made.

And its not the shortest kp - this is a pgp2 - my other build is a standard pgp and has it beat by 1 1/2"....

Walz, I asked for the angled feed because I thought it would mimic the overall shape of an actual pirate pistol. Kind of the same as the firing mechanism you see on pistols of that time. Plus I thought it would be good for functionality too.

I think you're dead on for functionality - you're a genius! Looks awesome man.

WALZ - You are amazing as always. Really sweet build.

I have never owned a kp. I had a crossman stock on a gun once, and I hated playing with it. Stocks that long just don't fit my style. This gun should be nice and small compared to those, so hopefully it will work with my style well. If not, I can just sit at home and drool over how pretty it is. lol

No advice from me, Once the trigger is finished I know it'll be great

I don't like regular rifle stocks on paintball guns either but I have one of Walz's drop stocks on my KP build and it feels really awesome, I am anxious to see how it feels in gameplay.

The detent tool should arrive very soon Walz, if you need any help to figure it out let me know. It is very straightforward and simple so I am sure you will be fine with it.

Completed!!!

Tapped the detent ball retainers in (2) one on each side.
Made them 1/2" long and med deep. (they will hold a .679 ball in place).
I made a practice run on a old barrel and crazyorigin's tool works great (just can't be afraid to hit the darn thing - I used a 2 1/2 lb. hammer.)

Also shaped the trigger like a "rake" and made a brass trigger guard.
This thing looks and feels bad to the bone.
I really like the way she came out...

So...
Started with members pgp.
Pirate stock w/trigger guard -90.00
Wood pump handle to match -20.00
Remove upper feedtube,
replace with vert c/j style feed -50.00
Modify existing trigger group,
add brass trigger---------------20.00
Add set of widgets-------------20.00
Re-port transfer tubes,
re-port valve (both .250 i.d.) -25.00
new springs, 0 rings and seals

Discount (just because)--------25.00

Other things tossed in - longer brass pump arm, semi-polish so she can patina out nicely, and a little piece of me (my blood, sweat and tears).

This one has taken around 12-15 hrs labor.
How do you like her now........... and what do you all think of my pricing.
(low, med. high)
Just wondering if I am in the ballpark for most everyone.. (I just do this for a hobby - not a business nor do I want to be, takes all the fun out of building -IMO ).
Thanks for your input.....WALZ
