Is is possible to drill and tap the patched aluminum for another detent? I think it would look better an add some function compared to the cover. It's a beautiful gun. Do you have the semi front-end put together yet?

yes it would be possible but I don't really want to do that.

I'm in the process of getting front pneus put together but nothing complete yet.

Love the way the jewel came out. Nice tribute to BPS in it and the grips.

Yeah it's called a press fit. And since you use like aluminum it would be in noticeable after anno. But the jewel over it looks good to.

The detent doesn't need to be exactly where the patch is now. It would still cover some of it. I just didn't know if the patched aluminum would be strong enough to take threads.

So I finally got around to putting a front block together. Honestly I think it'll get more use as a pump but I have a matching front block and it would be a shame not to use it.

FGP, Quickswitch, and a MP4. I really didn't need the built in QEV's of the MP4 but I just like the looks of the ram. I think the black pneus set it off with the Sidewinder collar and the Dart bolt.





...and in pump configuration.





It's really turned out to be a head turner. A true one of a kind imo and I can't thank everyone who helped make this happen nearly enough. Way too many people have helped in many different ways, it's just too much to list. So Thank You! You know who you are.

I love the old school Quikswitch. Those things are sooo much smoother than the new Quikswitches being made today but still just as short. I bet it works well with the Shocktech frame and trigger plate. Do you have a roller sear in there too?

And I know the cocking rod is very functional but it needs something cooler! Something simple like an Orracle/Black Magic cocking rod would look better and compliment the milling.

Yep, Belsales roller sear. I've thought about the cocking rod too but I just haven't come across anything that makes me want to give up the convenience of a hex end cocking rod. I never have to worry about marking it up and if for some reason it gets stuck it's easy to get a socket or wrench on it. I agree there are other rods that would look better on it... I'll have to think about it.

Ya, the quickswitch is different than any other 3-way I've used. It's short but has a noticable "pop" when it activates. It' doesn't really make a noise but you can feel it in the trigger even without air. Makes it nice and snappy.
