WGP Hinge Frame - What did this one come on?

I'm new to cockers and am stumped by this hinge frame (sorry for the orientation):




All the other WGP hinge frames that I have come across have been one of two styles, and I can't seem to find another one like this. I would like to know what marker it came on or what version / era it is, if possible. As a bonus, does anyone know what this Eclipse badge is from:

Those hinge frames came on everything around 2003 timeframe. Orracles, STO, 02 Prostock, 03 prostock, all kinds of stuff. The Orracles usually got matching anno frames so the chrome one you have there probably came off an STO or Prostock.

I believe that style came on the mini versions of the orracle and black magic.

Mini orracles got a double curve trigger, not the straight style. Might have come on black magics though.

That is true. After googling and looking at pics, I was mistaken on the black magics. It only came on the orracle. It has to just be a replacement frame though, because orracles are match anno'd.

So, to the OP, the short answer is: its a 2nd gen wgp hinge.

Thank you to both of you and everyone else. A new google search with the right keywords provided in this thread turned up plenty of similar examples.

and this answers another question I had. The nuances in the world of autocockers are somewhat daunting, but I'm slowly catching on.

Owning lots of different guns helps. In fact, just buy an example of each WGP gun from 1997-2005 and it comes pretty naturally. I highly recommend the gun whoring path to learning differences in autocockers.
