OH GREAT! Now what do I do?

So I bid on a very cheap looking picture that says it's a group buy for 3 swing trigger cocker frames. They look from the pic like they are just frames with no triggers or sears. The idea isn't to use them stock but to mill them out to make 45 bolt on frames for things like my Tagmaster and maybe do a couple for folks with Trracers or Mavericks locally. I bid and get these for a whopping $25 plus $7 shipping. So far so good. I'm expecting the "usual" cheapie WPG type frames. Not a big loss to see them milled up.

SO these come in. One each in deep blue, black and red. And with integrated dovetails in the base. They are just far too nice to hack up regardless of how noble a cause (pumps) they would be going for... not to mention I really don't need a dovetail on a pump.

I can probably use one or two if I want to switch away from a single finger trigger but I'm really not sure if I'll use more than that.... I guess I'll see what happens.

I think you should hack em up and try to make a pneumatic trigger frame!

Wow those are really nice!

But I have no use for a double hinge, just switched back to a slider.

Geez, it's like partying with a Mongel battle horde. What a bunch of bloodthirsty guys you are.....

...... So what's the pneumatic trigger frame you're talking about? You mean like the Automags use?

Yep...seems a few guys on customcockers are trying to fit those mini valves and rams into hinge frames so as to actuate the sear with very little trigger force.

As for hacking things up, sure we're bloodthirsty. They aren't vintage yet!

Those are just the basic '05 WGP hinges - not rare or anything (although I have to admit, I do like them). I say hack away if it suits your fancy.

I may still do it afterall but first I'll try out the dovetail.

First one to be sacrificed would be the red one. I have no use for red guns.....
