Talking 3 FBM Vampyre Halfblock Builds

Hey MCB, Hopefully this is the right area for this

Please let me know what you guys think

I have a total of 3 Factory FBM Vampyre Halfblocks I am currently working on:
1. Regular Vampyre Halfblock(There was only 4 or 5 Vampyre halfblocks made)
2. Factory Raw Mini Vampyre Halfblock tubed lower(They only made 2 of these)
3. Factory Mini Vampyre Halfblock tubed lower, with the red/black anno(Same as the above one only 2 made)

First is my Black Regular Vampyre Halfblock, this build is actually pretty close to done Here are the specs:
  • ccm pump kit
  • Maddman Cocker valve
  • CP reg
  • Eclipse On/Off ASA
  • FBM Vertical ASA
  • Kapp IVG
  • Unknown halfblock hammer
  • Benchmark Trigger frame(Pre 98 trigger plate)
  • FBM Feedneck
  • Unknown Bolt/Sled
  • Exalt reg grip
  • Black Macro Fittings


Next up is my Factory Raw Vampyre Halfblock tubed lower
I purchased this from one of the people that cleaned out FBM's Inventory when they went out of business. Going to be making this into a pump.
The raw parts for this build are being brought into local industrial annodizer tomorrow.
Here is the Specs for this build:
  • Brand new CCM Mini Kit(arrived from ccm few days ago)
  • CCM 86 frame(on order)
  • CCM Lower internals(On Order)
  • ANS Threadless IVG
  • FBM Feedneck
  • Regulator?(Suggestions? Havent decided yet)
  • ASA?(Suggestions, havent decided yet)
  • FBM Bolt sled
  • Going to be getting a Bolt from a guy on MCB





Last but not least.
Factory FBM Vampyre Halfblock with tubed lower(Red and Black annodizing). I just purchased this one from same person I got the RAW kit from. So its not here yet but might aswell show it off a bit lol. I still havent fully decided on specs for this one yet and what im going to do(mech,pump, electro,etc). Open to suggestions for this one if people have any.
  • All the parts as Pictured of course
  • Thinking about maybe a Palmers Valve?(suggestions? Looking for something a little different)
  • Threadless IVG
  • Going to be getting a Bolt from a guy on MCB
  • ASA?(Havent decided yet suggestions?)

That is correct. only 4 or 5 of the rugular vampyre halfblocks made(Including the one I have I have only been able to track down 3), and only two made with tubed lower(I own both )

I may eventually concider selling one of them but I dont know tbh absolutely love the milling

IMHO, if you're going to keep all 3, you should have one that's pump (which should be the one without the detent), a mech, and an electro. That say you have one of each.

Good looking guns. I've seen you post them on fb and didn't realize they were factory halfblocks; I was thinking "what heresy is this?!?"

Two of them are going to be pumps for sure. The third will mostlikely be a mech. But who knows this could change. And thanks, cant wait for the raw one to be done at the anodizers(should be tomorrow if im lucky if not early next week). then just got to wait for some parts to arrive early next week and it will be assembly time Going out to play next weekend so planning on having atleast two of them game ready for then.

Got a call from the Anodizer today, they had a slight issue during the etching process with the body Went out there right after getting off the phone with them. Had a look at the body and the other parts. Everything else looked really good. Body tolerances were intact luckily but there is some impurity's in the aluminum that were made more noticable by the etching. Good news though ones anodized should look good, and 85% of the areas that show the imperfections will be covered by the gripframe and pump kit So parts are going to be completed first thing Monday morning and picked up Monday will post pics of ones I get it from the annodizers Monday. Parts I need to build it wont be getting delivered until monday or tuesday.
