Bottom makes it easiest to remove the 12g and most friendly to both righties and lefties... However, side dropout makes it easiest to put a new 12g in... I'd personally be biased toward a left side dropout but I would be ok with a bottom as well.

I also prefer the left side dropout.
With a bottom drop the 12g has to be held up into the well with one hand, while another operates the lever and another maintains the grip.
Oh wait...
With the pistol tilted to the side, a 12ie can be placed in the well of a side drop with one hand which lets go, then operates the lever while the grip is maintained the whole time with the other hand. I've found myself much quicker back into action with side drops.

What about an inner 12 gram sleeve that can be rotated to allow for left, right, or bottom drop out?

That would be ugly as sin I think. I've never had a problem with bottom dropout. Between all my micro phantoms and an sa17. I really think the pistol would just look better with a bottom dropout.

Just to ask, have you tried a side drop out?
I used to run a rear dropout phantom too, but now that I have tried both I have a preference.

Is there enough room the trigger to fit your index finger behind the trigger?
(some of the cz line of pistols were designed so you could hold the gun this way-nice firm grip for pistol whipping)

If so, I wouldn't mind then having an under-dropout. Then you could just spin the gun quickly, pop in the new 12 gram and spin back.

[, QUOTE=storminnorman;2328267]Lever changer is possible I was wondering if anyone had a lever changer I could borrow for the development stages. I would pay for shipping and would greatly appreciate it, we just need to see how they work. Also looks like we are leaning toward a solid body with you being able to quick strip the main internals and have detachable grip. Let me know on the lever changer, I guess just pm me. Also working on a non lever changer addition as well.[/QUOTE]



You know I just thought of, your going to have to keep that threaded adapter in the cap for adjustment to different size co2 cartridges. Using a lever may make this very very difficult.
