Belsales Evolution X Build

I originally created this build thread over on the Custom Cockers forum for my 2k3 Belsales Evolution X cocker...but figure'd I would post it over on a few other various forums for others to take a look if they were interested. I ended up editing the original post into a picture/brief description overview of the project. The project ran from June 2012 until May 2013 and is now officially "finished." Here goes:

How I received it (early June 2012) - Picture of exactly how I bought this Evo from a member on MCB:





Some changes (late June 2012) - Eclipse Hinge, Check-It Unimount, Dye Stickies, Belsales Beavertail, CCM No-Pro, Race SM-1 Barrel, and Macroline Kit:





Another big change (mid September 2012) - AKALMP Sidewinder, Black Belsales Evo .44mag, QEV's, LPR, Hollowpoint, and front end hose - I thought I was "finished" with it at this point:







The next chapter (early February 2013) - Deciding to go for a more original look by picking up an Angry frame, some Freak parts, and a lot of NEW original Belsales parts:





Off to Canadia (mid February 2013) - Sending a few parts to Ton6ixer's anodizing in BC, Canada to be ano matched to the body (body sent as reference only - it was not re-anodized):





Ano completed picture from Ton6ixer (mid March 2013) - Ton6ixer finished anodizing the parts ahead of schedule and shot me a picture before shipping them back:





Evo back in the states (late March 2013) - Received the parts back from anodizing in the mail and laid everything out for the build, it was then sent off to docfire (Custom Cockers) for assembly and tuning:





Back from Cali (early May 2013) - I sent this off to Garrett - aka docfire (Custom Cockers) - for full assembly and tuning and what a GREAT job he did! This is finally "finished":

That looks great! Just built a Twister myself so I understand what an undertaking this is. I think it turned out excellent.

Hey, do you want a blue maxflo to pair with it? I just got an extra blue maxflo reg that might look good with it if you were looking to go full restore on it. Let me know. It might work for you.

You have my favorite combination of autococker trigger parts. An Angry frame + an AKA trigger plate + a Belsales roller sear + a Hollowpoint = the smoothest autococker trigger ever conceived. I have the exact same setup on my 98 Evolution.

I cannot tell by the pictures but did you polish the AKA trigger plate? They are kinda rough from the factory and it can make a huge difference.

Also, people are once again getting paid to assemble and time autocockers?!

I love the combination as well! And yes, the plate was polished by docfire...its very smooth! docfire actually does the assembly and tuning for free (less any parts needed and shipping costs). However, I did make a nice donation to keep his services up and running for free for Custom Cockers members

Nice to see a fellow Mountaineer on here. I live in the eastern panhandle.

No problem at all. You are one of, if not, the best seller's I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with; thank you for that. Mitchell and company at Ton6ixers seem like excellent people...I sent him the link to this thread as well so he could see the finished product with his anodizing.

Send it on over, I'll drill her for break beam eyes!

Thanks man! On a side note...thanks to cfos00, I updated some pictures to include the Max-Flo he sold me. Thanks again cfos!
