The only people here who know about this gun is Coolhand and Rick from precisionpb. That and everyone who frequents model98.org or matrixowner.com.
I posted this in the "Official ULing sensation thread"
Update thread on Model98.org
(keep in mind; photoshops on the first page are just ideas before i even started on the gun)
This tippy works like any other ebolted tippy. To make the UL frame fit, i milled out the area where the old trigger/sear pins go and mounted the noid in the body. I am using a standard timmy noid.
Ram is being custom made. It's a clippard ram with a custom housing and hammer. The hammer has a notch in the bottom to allow clearance for the tip of the output barbs on the noid, as the trigger/pin area wasn't quite tall enough. Won't be a problem after the noid is secured.
Input line from the noid runs down the frame, out of the bottom by the rail, and to the lpr (micro rock) which comes off the asa.
The gun is like.."mid-pressure". It uses a lp valve but because there is no lpc, i still need to have the pressure up to like 400-450 to avoid drop off. That is why i am using the aka sidewinder vs. the hyperII.
So far, i still need to get the gun a centerfeed, get the blowback vents filled and the eye-holes drilled, finish up with milling, get the ram, and do some filling to the cocking-slot and the rear part of the gun (by the back tip of the frame)
I am having trouble figuring out what i will do for the eyes. Since i'm using the pm5 ul, the board is shaped differently to allow room for the older noid, so i can't just drop in a dm6 ul board and hope it fits (though it may). I do know the board mounting screws are in a different place. I don't know if the ribbons will be long enough.
Here are various pics, 56K beware.
(planning stage photoshop; lpr isn't there anymore)
(this is why i didn't use the smaller mac noid. It is wider and that is what needed to be small in order to fit. )
-Thanks to fullymodded for the pic
As for the weight...an aluminum v/a (as apposed to the normal brass/copper ones) made more of a difference than the UL frame. I can tell you it is VERY close in weight to my pm6.
