That would have been a royal pia! They would have had to bore out a piece of stainless round stock or tube to have it's own threading for front block screw, valve chamber, threading for valve retaining screw then the hammer tube. I can't see them doing that, but I could be wrong.

I've not seen inside a fully tubed version, but they might have skipped the valve retaining nut and used just the set screw from the bottom ala Merlin mounting.

No idea on the asa or frontblock banjo. Definitely more work than it should have been.

Was thinking about using a set screw... but more from the VM standpoint... until I realized that there were no screws in the sides of the gun

They used the same valve and retaining system as a standard cocker.

The tube was threaded for the front block.

And there was lots of epoxy.

The full tube, full body ones are guaranteed to leak at the vertical asa, as the epoxy does 100% of the sealing. I eventually was able to make mine air tight, but due to the modification to fix it, it can only ever be a pump.

Wow, I imagined Spanky had found a more elegant way to seal those vertical adapters. How did air even get through all the epoxy and into the body? So the epoxy seals the tube to the body but why was epoxy needed to seal the vertical ASA to the body? The oring should have taken care of that.

And does anyone know if the Spanky and FBM tubes are interchangeable?

I think the problem is the space between the stainless tube and the body around the air passage from the VASA. And then like good assembly folks they just goobered the epoxy in there, because more is better.
