couple vector mods


left side is the top of a aka sidewinder (upside down)
and what it looks like if you take the reg off your vector.
they are the same threads though the tolerances are a bit different.
the niche was about 3 thousanths larger od. so i chased the threads w/ a 7/8-20 die. die handle wasnt needed but it did turn pretty hard by hand.


sidewinder in place.


installed a set screw in to take up some of the un-needed forward travel of the trigger. they already have a hole drilled all the way from the front.
had to enlarge the front half of the hole slightly to let the shank portion of the die in to reach the back half of the hole that needed threaded. 6-32 plug from a viking body.


the other thing i cant bring myself to do but id like to do is drill a hole in the bottom the trigger guard so you can access the grip frame screw easier.

Is this the solution to the regulator which caused the problems at LCP, or did you sort the Niche regulator out, and decide to go this route instead?

while i had it apart i noticed the compatibility.
i did get the niche reg running so this was just me screwing w/ things...
to shoot the marker as low as we were i had the reg up to a pretty high pressure idk if that let the lower o-ring over the threaded portion to cause it to sort of scrape the outside of it off or what.

I still have to go back and mess with the TS and the Sniper to get them back to outdoor field velocity :/

I'm sad for the threads ....they were pretty....cool that you can do the reg change though.....I'm hoping you guys play....

concerning the "protoptype trigger frames".....
we had included a pin for forward stop.....basically we switched to a 4-40 for the 2nd and 3rd group here for forward trigger stop......the original hole was for an 8-32...so if you want...go a head and tap it.

I didn't like how close the threads were...for a production gun...and the pin works well as the forward stop....without breaking thru
again though....the new ones are all 4-40...these were my prototype "tube sliders"

The regulator is of BM design....simply put....I shortened the bottom chamber...and nothing more....(only needed to change the bottom piston length to accomodate)

In the case of the BM style reg.....the entire bottom can be cut down and not change the air flow at all.....everything below the piston can be shortened in a BM reg....I'm a WGP fan and liked the regs...so....its fun to play with design on things like that.....more fun to show a guy like Bud and make him smile

Concerning the HPR replacement....I'm a fan....and Ill visit everything....in time.....as the $$ allows.....so in the future....different regs I'm sure will be avail....it depends on urgency of a part to get it thru engineering and programming and production.....but its always a fun process if you love what you do.

Here's a question...

Why not standard ASA threads? Let the user choose the reg of their preference. And if you're confident in the quality of your regs, sell them separately as well (heck, got a few builds in the works myself that could use a good reg, and would love something different).
