What is this hole for

What is the small hole for in the back part of the lower tube on this body. I've noticed it on other old cocker bodies but never knew what it was for.

Also anybody have an idea as to the age. I'm not sure when they started sloping the sight rail and rounding the back of it off. There is no SN, it was milled off.

for adjusting the set screw that keeps the cocking rod tight in the hammer.

The set screw for the hammer lug can also be accessed using that hole.

As for the age, it's hard to tell without the serial number. They started slanting the sight rails in 98, so it's old than that. Take the detent out and see if the threads are anodized. If it's raw, that means its probably from before WGP made detents stock (~95, I think). Another good way to tell is taking the internals out and seeing what valve spring it uses.

BTW, the PPS reg on the bottom will fit into a lot of common cages. The stock ASA from a 2k4 autococker has a cage, a cage from a unimount, and so on. PPS also sells two different versions that will work, but they are pricey compared to finding one of the above.

Guys, he posts a picture of a hole in the side of the lower tube and you all start talking about the cocking lug adjustment hole... which is on the top of the upper tube. I don't know what the hole is that he's talking about, but it sure as crap isn't the one for adjusting the cocker lug...

Read more closely - the side hole is for adjusting the set screw in the hammer that retains the hammer lug. When first implemented in '94/95, those set screws were metal, not the teflon ones you know today. They did not allow the lug to move at all, and obviously could only be adjusted from the side once the hammer was in the body, thus the need for a side hole.

You're right and wrong. Right: you do adjust the lug through the top. But here's where you're wrong... the hole on the side locks the lug in place so it doesn't slip and mess up your timing/firing position.
