The halfass body is a FBM product. The term you are looking for is halfblock in which the back part of the top tube is cut away and a shorter bolt and cocking rod are used. This also negates the need for the back block which is replaced with a sled. You can buy a do it yourself kit or have it done by someone.

If you want specifically the halfassed, then directly is the only way I know of to buy the halfassed firsthand. It will be easier for the inexperienced with Autocockers to buy a 'Cocker and the kit separately though you could buy all the best parts to put on it in the BST and stuff. I won't recommend the latter route, though if you're really interested you will be able to find parts lists in the Autococker forum and you basically won't need any parts that you see connecting to the pneumatics on a diagram, except a pump arm, which will probably have to be made "custom" for your build because it's a pump and half blocked.

Other halfblocks can be found practically anywhere that mills markers.

I wouldn't roll with a Trilogy because I'm not quite up to snuff on all the differences between the regular 'Cockers and Trilogies other than integrated LPRs.

I'm not entirely sure if the trilogy would work, however if you look around you can find some places with 2k4 vert feeds for sale. For something like this however i would probably suggest finding one in the bst section. The reason for this is that in your case you really only need the internal, reg and trigger frame so you'll probably end up with better parts if you look around than if you just buy a stock cocker.

Sucks. There are plenty of other places and if all else fails you can pick one up in the BST here for cheap, third party it if you're uncomfortable, and find someone at your field who can fix them to show you how to fix numerous problems affiliated with 'cockers.
