Building my new Daily Driver...

So I bought a cocker parts lot a little while back because I can't stop building the damn things. My intent was to build a Daily Driver/Primary, all mechanical with a hinge frame. But, because it is an Autococker, I got all neurotic about the gloss black components all matching, which sent me on my way to find parts.

What I ended up with was a NOS 2K+ front block, TASO 3-way, Sledgehammer LPR, Empire Resurrection Ram, and a top pin back block, and yes, all gloss black. But I wasn't done yet. Had to get a CP on/off ASA and matching regulator, because, you know, aesthetics.

So far I've got this -



The regulator arrives this week, then in go internals, and then it will be time to tune and time.

On a side note, I realized that I could have bought an Empire Resurrection for about the same price as what I've got into it so far.

But, what's the fun in that?

Ever thought about throwing a karni front block on it?

Looking good looking good! I am a fan of all gloss black parts as well. It is a tricky thing to do tho, as far as finding GOOD not scratched to hell black parts for a decent price. I just went through the same thing on my e-orracle.

A good working karni front block is going to run a guy close to 200$. Not worth it. Plus karni was bladed he has mech.

The 2K front block I used was brand new, still sealed in plastic, and it was less than $20. Total pain to find gloss black parts that aren't beat to hell. So many used ones have idiot marks.

I was stoked to find the top pin back block because it will make any cocker shooter's head turn. I need to find a unique bolt pin, or maybe make my own to complete the look.

The front block, id specify pneumatics of that's what I meant.

The reason for it is to gain the spacing between trigger frame and regulator and gain the angle on the reg.

You do have to do some metal work to get it to fit but I just did mine with nothing more than a vice, a Dremel with a cutting wheel and a few bastard files. If I did it again I'd probably use a hack saw instead of the Dremel.

Dirty- if you find a cool bolt pin post it up, I've been half looking for one for my cocker.

I will, or maybe I'll have some custom ones machined. I like the gas mask one that is on eBay right now (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Silver-Auto...7r7kg9AgRDRBZQ), but It isn't really looking any way that would work for a top pin set up.
