Is that gold anno?


No, it's raw aluminum. The camera flash just made it look gold. Looks pretty neat in the picture, though :D

Ah, no... he scored a (very hard to find) Chipley raw body from a Series 5. And I, for one, am quite jealous. That puppy was on eBay for what, 165?


Yep, that's correct, $165. I picked it up on MCB, though. CCMachinist was selling his project bodies he no longer wanted. I think he implied in one of his PM's that this was the last one he had, but I really don't know.

And I now have it in my possession. It arrived at my apartment today. Unpacked it, inspected it, and it's very nice. I quite like it, yes :P

It'll take me a bit to collect the parts for it. I want to go with all new parts. I'm going with Palmer pneus. I want to see if they'll do a set in dust nickel for me along with a barrel to match. I'll go with dust black for everything else (body, front and back block, vert adapter, frame). As for the reg, my local pro shop has a brand new Sidewinder that needs a new home.

eBay snipe, $60 including 2 PE QEVs. Nooo complaints there; it's a freakin monster. Had to set it to HP (swap the 2 springs) to make it run my mini ram, but it was rock steady on LP with a 3/8" bore ram, and just as steady now. And so small and light... Sucks that Eclipse doesn't do cockers anymore. I was actually tempted to try and swap it for a black one, and then get a Nexus ram, so my entire front end would be all nexus-y, but this particular LPR was only on the DC2 AFAIK, and those were E-bladed. Today, I got it running so fast, I was walking my mech at about 14bps, on the undersized CCM double trigger, with no hint of shootdown, even in the slightest. Bet it still would pinch paint, too.

Oh, and my Stabilizer FINALLY arrived! ...I love my gun.

Nope, no milling, I don't want to do any cutting on this body. It's perfect as is :unsure:

Eventually, all the dark grey is gonna be anodized in my "Joker" scheme, black/ purple acid with green splash overtop.

Well you say you can walk it. What are the 3 biggest factors to this. In your opinion.

Delrin bolt
QEVs
(which pneu factor?)

Your 4 way/trigger stroke is the same as most.

.

Also that's a very clean hack job on the halfblocking.

Light springing (heavy hammer), fast ram, smooth 4-way, and touchy hammer lug, I'd say. My hammer lug will trip at thehint of pulling the trigger, the 4-way goes a mere split second afterwards (even have suction timing), and weight-wise, significantly lighter than a ULT mag or Spyder. Still a touch heavier than even old electros, though, but not much. I'd put it around 12 ounces. But the hammer is begging to be released, perched on the edge like that, and the trigger's fulcrum is very low so it's a very long throw for a relatively short trigger, combined with a short throw needed with a Hollowpoint, and it just works well for me.

Oh, and I've got strong, twitchy fingers. Rock climbing, and practice. I could probably walk a ULT mag on a good day.

Edit: I did the halfblocking with parts from pbmodshop.com, and a 44" Bridgeport. That mill is scary powerful, and a 5/8" Endmill is not joking around.

Oh, and don't forget, need fast regs to walk, to prevent shootdown.

That's nice, Nate, really like it. I was actually considering putting myself together a micro before I found the CCM body, but I decided a full size CCM bodied cocker would look slick, even if it is a bit heavier :rolleyes:

S'ok, though, I'll make up the weight in paint. This will be my limited paint semi, I think.

Yeah... mine's actually a full-sized (well, except the part where it has no backblock or top tube). Full length front, for more air, and full length back, for my Rex Dialer.

Thank you :P I really do love it... I already iced up my reg walking the trigger on CO2, but heck, it's a stabilizer. Still ball-on-ball.

Ok - long story but I'll make this one short.

My favorite cocker came back to me today. I had this thing tuned so sweet. However 2 years ago I sold it for $240 (I think) to somebody that fell in love with it. Well for about the next 4 months after the sale I was always fixing it after the guy did his adjustments. I don't remember all the stuff on it. I bought it almost 4 years ago from E-bay. It's heavily Palmerized.

Now it comes back to me with more nicks and usage markers than I gave to him. Also the thing needs total break down and conditioning. I'll check the valve and stuff then. It shoots but no velocity and timed way off. (still soft trigger though :D )

He traded this marker and gave me $110 for a BNIB Bravo One Tactical. link

Mm... nothing wrong with getting a heavily Palmerized gun back... Nice trade, I might add.
