The "UL98" - UL framed 98 custom (***RAM IS IN, GUN IS ALMOST DONE!***)

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.

That's the idea..Should be more effiecient than a matrix too. Ram/poppet style and there is no more blowback.

I actually really want one now. That is just plain awesome. I've seen some pretty cool modded Tippy's, but I'd actually throw down the cash for that if I had some to spare.

Aluminum va? I am interested in that. As for the no blow back. Did you, Macguyver, or someone else do it? Or am I wrong on all counts? Been following it the whole time on m98.org. Looks great so far.

I'll probabally end up letting macgyver do it since i know he can do a better job. As for the aluminum v/a, i'ts 3 piece and made by bt, I'm sure you've seen it before. It's about 1/3 the weight of the brass ones.

Updates!

I've been working on lowering the noid. It is pretty much completely out of the ram's way now. The slot in the ram will just be a "fail safe" and will drop some weight.

I cut into the frame to widen some of the thicker parts of it, and slightly cut into the trigger. It would nudge the noid when pulled after lowing it, it doesn't now.

The noid is flipped so that the mounting holes are on the lower side. This part fits into the frame. Mounting screws are tapped into the side of the frame (right above one of the grip screws and one slightly to the size) and are hidden under the grips. Pics below if that was hard to catch.

Here are many pics of the work i've done, and some glamour shots.




Noid, lpr, and frame setup. (first pic is resized by the foro's. Access it by url to see full size)

I'm expecting it to weigh something in the pm5 range. Right now it's about the same as my pm6 but that is without the ram. Most of the weight from a mech 98 is from the massive steel rear bolt and i will have a nice aluminum ram instead..and then to think stock 98's aren't all that heavy.

It is fully assembled in the previous pic minus the ram which is still being made.

I'm still waiting for a quality conversion done to a Carbine. All I've seen so far is the "Franken-Timmy" made of Timmay and Cocker parts on a Carbine body... but very ugly.
