Either way I will probably mounting a Palmers Micro-Rock on the left side of the bottomline ASA (will require me to invest in a new ASA, but oh well, its worth it). I want to use a micro-rock, they are very nice LPRs and when it comes to a mod like this, it would probably be best to use a really dependable LPR, as if that breaks the marker will no longer fire. I will probably do it exactly like as pictured above. I may even buy a CP ASA, as they make pretty good On/Off ASAs. If I go the standard pneumag route, I will no longer have a marker safety, as I will probably be installing double trigger stops from Luke's Customs afterward. The ability to turn off AND bleed the entire marker (including the LPR) will be a must for safety in my book. I never liked having to get rid of a safety in the first place, but there are alternative measures to safety, just like on an electro. As long as I can disengage the firing mechanism, we would be fine.
In all honesty, I think I am gonna have to renege on the ectro-pneumag mod. Perhaps I will in the future with more funding, but I just don't feel like learning pneumatics AND electronics all in one project. Perhaps if I get this electrician's apprenticeship I am shooting for, I will learn how to circuit my own stuff and get it all rigged up, but I would need a lot of help with an electro mod. That being said, lets stick to Pneumag for now, as I can always make electro-pneumag lowers some other time. As far as pneumag goes, my biggest problem with this whole thing, its kinda confusing. I got the concept of exactly how this much be done, but I am confused beyond confused as to what parts to use. Phish has a very good list of parts here, however some parts, such as the Fabco MSV-1 vs. MSV-2 I have no knowledge of and no clue which ones would be better for the shortest and lightest trigger pull. One could even use a Clippard SMAV-3, but I have no clue what the differences are. Also, the actuator end of this is a little confusing. So with the actuator I should be getting all the internals as well, correct? Should be the main piece, the spring, possibly a washer, and a delrin bolt correct? Or does it come with a ram as well? I see luke's customs has 3/8's MPA-3 Rams, but are those a good size, or would I need to make them longer or shorter? Shorter I can do on my own easy, I can get it all tuned up and ripping paint, but longer is a custom order of some type or some sort of drill/tap/nut modification that I would like to plan ahead for if I have to do it. Also, QEVs. Would you suggest one or no? I'm not exactly sure what the point of one is, I know it ports air, but thats about it. As you can see I need a little more knowledge before I can set this up.
So yeah, so far I'm pretty set on a left side bottomline mounted Mini-rock, and doing a regular pneumag conversion. Thats about it. Any suggestions, tips, or anything else that could set me in the right direction?
