Shocktech Body

My son who lives 3 hours away from me bought him self one of the new Shocktech raw bodies. Right from Them.

His body came in today and to say the least he is not impressed with the front and back blocks.

First the front block will not slide on all the way. (see the picture) It looks like they never even polished the mill marks out.

Second the back block. The holes for the bolt don't match up. (that could be having the wrong bolt, as I said it is 3 hours away) But the bolt in the picture is a Shocktech superfly. Again there are mill marks on it.

Now with that said. I need to find out some information from the fine people here. Or a place to find the information.

1) What feedneck thread is the body?
2) Does anyone know how long the cocking rod would be?
3) Does anyone know what the bolt length is?
4) Pump arm length?

Any help would be great!

1) What feedneck thread is the body? Ion XE threaded
2) Does anyone know how long the cocking rod would be? Should be a standard cocking rod
3) Does anyone know what the bolt length is? Evo Length
4) Pump arm length? Should be mini-cocker length

You'll need a mini-cocker length timing rod.

I may be wrong about these so if anyone knows better please correct me.

There are different length Superfly bolts and Millar is correct that you will need the Evo length superfly bolt.

It is possible the bolt you are using is a 2k+ or pre2, which is why the hole for the bolt pin will not align correctly.

I've read elsewhere that others have received "raw" kits, meaning they'll need some additional finishing/polishing/deburring before final assembly and anodizing.

Right on the money - he's using a 2k bolt.

STO/Evo bolts have backblock hole alignment like a 99, but are shorter overall.

As long as your son can get the frontblock to fit with the body, the frontblock problem might actually work to his advantage. The tight fit will make it difficult to twist the frontblock while holding the vertical HPR, probably the biggest problem associated with mini-cockers.
