Identify this very odd minicocker, MCB and Customcockers hasn't





All Dye Components, including hinge, with factory ano red to black fade. Found in Dye's hometown. Pre-Reflex Minicocker??

Customcockers and MCB members haven't had much of an input. A friend with close ties to Dye has seen this body only twice in eight years.

Nothing. Someone thought it was for a set screw for the hammer lug, but nothing on the hammer as far as I could see. Haven't taken it apart and it is currently out of my hands and on it's way to get some stuff fixed.

Obviously the builder was big on dye. I doubt its prereflex though, because the first reflexs had slide frames, the hinge came later. Could be a carter creation or someone in the San Diego area. Good looking.

The right side hammer hole and cartridge-style velocity adjustment sort of scream '99 to me... though closer to 95-97, I think.

it's got some care in it, so it's probably more than your average hackjob. i was wondering how you knew it had the cartridge-style adjuster until i saw the screw that holds it in, but on most or all stock bodies i know of, that hole isn't countersunk like that from the factory.

Some of the WGP bodies I've had were countersunk, and the Evo body I had definitely was.

Mystery of the Minicocker body solved. Thanks to Demonio and Earon Carter.

The gun it currently at Earon Carter’s to get a stripped thread fixed. Apparently, he did the current custom machining on this mincocker body. He said it had some other unknown work on it originally, and he milled it to it’s current creation. It was a one of one pre-Reflex autococker, milled at Dye, for Billy Wing.

That would explain the outstanding machining and anodizing, as well as the Dye influence in parts and lines.

Now the question is….to keep it as is, or to pump it, with the rest of my guns?

its your call, personally I'd sell it for all that you can get for a 1 off for a pro. I might be biased because I dont like right feeds.

I love right feeds. I have a ripper, S5 and a shocktech right feed pumps plus a bunch of factory WGP RF pumps. Just a preference. It's the decision to keep it as is for it's uniqueness, or pump it. I never play semi, even when I drag one to the field.

If you pump it just keep the parts. Parting blocks and matching parts just as bad or worse then drilling for eyes

I agree. Whatever you do, keep the original parts.
