Good to know about Lab-Metal. I'll look into it. From what I've seen, you can get some really clean results from it.

@Mar, I always loved the paint on yours. I won't lie though, the nubs from the front grip always bugged me.


Hmm, I never thought about drilling it for different grips. I might end up having to do something like that. Yours looks really good!! If all you need to do is assemble it, you should get on it!!
I need to get the ram back out and remember what I was doing to two-way it. I have the ram pictured in it right now but I'm worried about getting the front to seal around the shaft so I think I'm gonna use the other one. I just fit a plastic washer inside with an oring sandwiched between it and the front nut. But I have a psychoballistics ram, like yours, which is sealed both ways factory.

I did similar to you on the body as well. Jb welded the slot, smoothed the foregrip, shaved the letters. I'll probably run it with the stock feed, but I'm still trying to come up with a vert feed solution. I should have bought up some RD vert feeds when they were still available

Neither of the 2 Psychoballistics rams I have are sealed up front. But I figured out a way to seal it without too much work; I just filed the front nut down on the thread side, and stuffed a 201-070 o-ring in there. It seals against the shaft and seals the outside of the nut. I'll get some pics up later.

As for the centerfeed... yeah I'm not sure how I'm going to do that. Tracking down a Rufus Dawg centerfeed is going to be all but impossible. I might try doing an Ego feedneck. One of my teammates is a welder, I might see if she can weld an appropriately sized piece of tubing onto one side of the receiver. Not sure if it'll take the weight of a fully loaded hopper, though.

You're right. It does need an oring up front. I'm gonna try to set both rams for two-way and see what works. The GTA ram is like half the weight.
