Angel virtue pmr rail conversion for lcds ir3 speeds a4 with step by step and pics

I'm going to be showing the general public how this conversion is done from start to finish with pics::

First of all you will need the following::

1 virtue pmr rail board : these can be sourced from amazon or from virtue 40 bucks

1 pmr wire harness and micro switch :: these can be sourced from eBay usually 10-12 bucks ( I usually make mine , saving money))

1 set of mounts:: I cut my own from a 1/2 thick standard white nylon cutting board

1 set of screws for the board these need to be 3mmx10mm in length because the nylon mounts are thick

1 set of very small screws to fit thru the micro switch holes to attach to the top mount 080x1/2"

1 brand name 9 volt

----------------------------------

First thing I do is cut the mounts. I use a jig saw and a dremel for the cutting. Always pick your best set that can be moved into position to fit the board and the battery. The 90 frames have alot more room and will be more forgiving. The LCD frames are tight and require use if a soft top battery harness that may need trimming too. Here's a pic of my mounts ::



After cutting them I mock them up using 3 mm screws from the hardware store- I believe they are 6-8 mm long

Here's a pic of them mocked up::



I put the buttons to turn the gun on , in the top 2 holes because that's where the board sits best.

After placing the mounts and the buttons I turn my attention to the board itself: I have already trimmed one down so you can see what a 90 framed virtue pmr rail board looks like ready to install::

Here's a pic of the trimmed board::



Be careful not to sand the connectors on the back or the eye ribbon port.



I use a dremel and small sanding drum to achieve the shape I'm looking for.

After the trimming of the board I mock it up - you may need to fit and re sand/trim until it format to your liking. This is trial and error- no rocket science, but it will frustrate you the first few times.

Here's a pic of the trimmed board mocked up in the 90 space frame::






After this step I connect the wire harness and then mark the micro switch location- I use a small pilot drill tip to do this

Here's a pic of this step::



The pilot drill tip I use:: small enough to go through the microswitch holes and strong enough to tap the nylon



After you mark the holes - take the board and the top mount out: use the pilot bit to make the holes. After that use size 080x1/2" screws and nuts to attach the micro switch to the nylon mount. Some people use nails and epoxy. Use what you want, but I never deviate from stainless steel screws.

I'm going to attach pics of a finished 90 frame and a finished 45 frame . The only difference is space and patience.





If you have any questions post up or pm me.

I presume Digikey or an equivalent is your parts source? Would you happen to share the part #'s? I presume you're using the molex connectors as listed in this thread?

Sorry, I don't know the Ebay link for the 4 wire you speak of. I was under the impression one could use a PMR harness (ie. micro, 4 wire, and 9v soft top). Something like this one (see attached pic...let me know if that pic is too big and I'll resize):
