Jack the Ripper

After over a year of several people's efforts, Jack looks like he's finally done. He's a heavily modified Ripper, some of it you can see, and some of it you can't. I have to say thanks to several people here for the work that was done. First off, I'd love to thank Addicted to Dunes for the convertible milling on the body, as well as the 2k front air passage mod. You may notice that there is a twister front block on it, which is a pre-2k block. That's because Vitalsilence was able to make me an internal adapter to allow Jack to go from pre-2k to post-2k at will. Ty McNeer manually milled the windows out, and freaked the barrel (thanks again buddy!). RobertSr on MCB did the custom jewel, which came out great (the smudge in the picture is just that). After a bit of a nightmare in anodizing, which resulted in losing of my collets and rods from CCM, thanks to Mel at CCM for finding the replacements that I needed. And a HUGE thanks to the good people at Arnold's Metal Finishing. You may know them for their work with BPS or BLAST. They took this project on after another ano guy basically tossed it in an acid bath and seemed like he forgot about it. About half the parts looked like lost causes. I asked multiple other anodizers to take a look, and they all said no. Arnold's said yes, were very reasonable on price, and had a very, very fast turnaround. The ano is thick and a high quality. I was very impressed with them, and would definitely use them again. The pictures don't really do the justice to the bloodspatter ano, as the black shows up a lot better in-person than in these pictures. I also am probably going to swap in a black bolt and black grips, as it came out a little bloodier than I had in my head. Anyway, on with the show.

Looks Great, this marker had had a hard life. Started out as this:





Went to Eaton Machine to receive the ripper milling. It was there for a year, at the time it was sent to Eaton, Jim was having hard times and ended up closing up shop. But through diligence and perseverence I got everything back, but not as I expected.





The feedneck was shot. I could not live with that, so I bough a basic black right feed body and had Renick at BBT remove it and press fit the one from the donor body.

Nearly a year after the feedneck replacement I realized I was not going to get the project done anytime soon. So I sold it.

So happy to finally see it done.

Oh and for the people asking why I would sell a right feed ripper body?



I had 2...

The custom jewel is perfect for this build.

RobertSr is not only good people, but does great work. I gave him the idea, and he knocked it out of the park on the jewel. I would happily use him again.

You betcha. I have a Reflex'ed cocker that would love a twister body. If you have one kicking around, I would love to take it off your hands.

Also, the ano was by Arnold's Metal Service. It took two weeks for the turnaround, was 32 parts for $250, and is a nice, thick, high quality ano. You have no idea how beat up and burned some of these parts were from the first ano guy. It looked like half the parts spent a week in an acid bath. They did a pretty amazing job on it considering the save that they had to pull off. They also did the recent heritage series of BPS LV1 twisters, and also do the bob long markers. They are definitely worth looking into, and I plan on using them for my next project.
