Has anyone ever done a modernized Apex Elite?

I'm thinking about a somewhat simple project around an Apex Elite. Has anyone ever cut that body and threaded it to accept Cocker barrels? Any special advices or experiences you could share?

Thanks.

There have been a series of nelson unibodies that were cut and cocker threaded. I believe TJD did a razor back iii that way, and freaked iirc.

found it...

Thanks. Yeah, I remember seeing that Razorback and this is actually what is inspiring me here. My question is really in regards to the Apex Elite body tolerances. My idea would be to use my Deadlywind barrels on the Apex Elite but as I am not an expert, I wanted to know if the body has enough "meat" to be threaded like this, for example. Same goes for the lenght and if it's possible to use other barrels withour interfering with the pump handle.

I think there are only two parts to that; the OD of the stock barrel, and the location of the front body screw. That screw needs some meat to hold onto, so there's some consideration there as you bore back toward the breech. I can't tell from the manual pictures how close the frame is to a nelson, hole-wise.
