How much is it costing you to get a trigger frame made?
i actually checked that store but the only raw body they have is the merlin autococker so the holes for the rod to the bolt and hammer is not there.
as for the price its going to be about $30 for the metal and $100 for the milling. so $130 and i have a 90 degree frame.

But with the cocker barrel tap being something special you'd have to buy it for them to use.
Barrel tap set... and yes you need both. You need to start the thread with the tapered tap and then finish it to the blind hole with the bottoming tap.
Or get the body extrusion linked in Fred's post above this and get the whole thing done.
actually the EVO's hammer tube is smaller than spyder's. but the body is pretty huge, it could work but im checking ebay and asking around for bodies and such.
