So I went to SC Village yesterday, and needless to say, my day sucked. The paint I bought was tiny, wreaking havoc with my consistency (+/- 15~20) and efficiency (A little over a hopper with a 9oz, granted SC fills 9oz's with only 7ozs) with my Palmers .685 (Thank Dog my widgets worked). Well LAPCO had a booth set up for the UWL tourney that day, and I came over asking about the Picoshot. Well they instantly recognized me as the guy who had called the day before, inquiring after a Picoshot. When they asked why I wanted a cocker threaded barrel for the Blazer, I told them about my purchase of a Python kit and my dissapointment about the Python only going down to .679 for the Blazer (It uses the longer inserts for the old Angel thread kits, and since there had been little demand for the Angel kits, Python never made anything smaller than .679). Then I took a ball out of my hopper and with the gentlest of pressure, pushed it through the .676 Cocker bore sizer. He said that wasn't the worst he'd seen that day, someone had a paint that dropped through the 676 sizer. Well he said that he was now thinking of making both smaller barrels and bore sizers. After that I asked if they could make the Cocker bore sizers for the Blazer, but even smaller, in the 670 range. He said he would deffinantlly make both barrels, and bore sizers for the Blazer, as long as there was a demand. So at minimum we would need 10 people for a run of Blazer bore sizers. I was thinking maybe 670, 674, 678, 682 (to match my new Pico shot and Eigenbarrel ), hell maybe even down to 666 (wow, maybe 665 or 667 would be better ). And don't think I've forgotten about you, Pyre owners, I'll see if he can make them compatible with the Pyre.
PS-Bud Orr was there, I didn't talk to him, but I did over hear him inquiring at the LAPCO booth about Cocker frames...
Well, I could have him make them with the 2.3" slipfit area, since 2K's can use 1K barrels. Since they would be anno'ed black, I don't think it would look that weird on a 2K. Though, if it was longer, it might interfere with the pump handle on the Pyre (although I don't even know if it was made with a 2" slipfit, if it would work on the Pyre)
I could ask about making a run of small bore barrels for the Blazer, though the smallest right now would be 682. He's in the same boat as Palmers, his barrel stock isn't small enough to make the tiny bores and he would have to order new stuff. The bore sizers are made from different stock and therefor can go smaller. We could start a list for a run of 682 Blazer barrels also.
