Why does such a big guy need a drop that big? :confused:

lose the drop and its pure secks. and maybe some new grips, you can't customize it that much and leave the stock grips.

thats a weird looking asa, like part uni mount and part something... other than that, it looks pretty nice.

are those eye covers?

bigred76
02-09-2006, 06:18 PM
Yeah, it has eye covers like on Protos.

thanks all...the drop is needed to fit the beast of a 71/45 to balance it. If I had a different looking drop of similar dimentions, I'd swap it but I need it to bring the tank forward and under the grip. The 'center' of the marker is at the vertical trigger adjustment screw where the triggerguard meets the grip. Also, That Trinity on/off is new and is a, on/off-uni hybrid. The cage mounts the on/off just like a uni but is uber smoothe and holds very little air. There are 4 allen set-screws just like a Uni. That sideways "U" you see in the cage is on both sides to mount the air fitting wherever you want.
And yes...the Stage 5 uses a top-mounting eye system...that is a 1-piece eyecover.
Grips-I've been toying with the idea of creating new grips out of polished brass plate. I can get panels for around $6 a panel and it'll be easy to dremel...gotta have something "Druid" on it...

thanks. I actually thoutht about mass producing them but depending on the milling schemes requested...they may take more time than the purchaser wants to wait.
