New pump build

I have 2 spare bodies I want to build pumps out of. 1st body is a Prostock halfblock. Unfortunately the machinist did a horrible job with the body but it can be repaired, 2nd body is an Outkast I was thinking of keep the full body but doing an ego feed neck mod. I was wondering do you prefer halfblock or full body snipers? I like the halfblock look unless its a rare body keep it original. I might post pictures of my progress.

I'd keep the Outkast as a fullblock since I like the milling on those. You could midblock it though. I always prefer a midblock over halfblock because it keeps the milling of the body, and still gives you all the advantages of a halfblock besides the loss of weight.

What did the machinist do?

True, I would do a midblock if I could convince the machinist to do a custom design. I don't like the look of a midblocked body that has that square/box look.

I got 2 Autocockers from a local classified ad, one was a stock Vertebrae and the second was this Prostock. He needed money and was moving out of state and wouldn't sell them separate. I really just wanted the Vertebrae but at $200 for both it was a steal. He mentioned he was a machinist apprentice and did the work himself. From the looks of the body he didnt level it before he started so the cut isn't level. Fortunately there is enough material to level it.

So here are the 2 bodies. I have already purchased a couple parts, trigger frame, CCM pump kit, Jcurt bolt and sled, pump handle,... I have a friend locally who is a machinist and is willing to fix the Prostock and ego feedneck mod the Outkast.

Outkast


Prostock

He added a threaded feedneck to the 2K4, that's cool but it needs to be trimmed up out of the breech. I was just going to buy one of those. Let me know if its a pain to get at.

Oh Goody! What's in the boxes?

Hey, does that Outkast have a threaded feedneck? I just found out today mine does. I didn't think any of them did but I noticed a parting line around the bottom and sure enough it came off! My SN is around 185,xxx. I'm ordering a Trinity clamping feedneck for it now.

I couldn't decide which trigger frame I wanted to use on the Prostock so I bought both frames I was considering CCM 45, and Planet Eclipse hinge frame.



For the OutKast I got a CCM EZ pump kit, I ordered 2 different pump handles 1 for the OutKast and 1 for the Prostock. They should be here sometime next week.

Unfortunately the OutKast has the stove pipe feedneck which why I want to ego feedneck mod it. I think it was one of the first OutKast Serial# 141854. I wish mine had a threaded feedneck. This is the first pump I have built that has a stove pipe feedneck. I have built a FBM Spanky Cobra pump, Psychoballistics halfblock pump, and a 06 Blackmagic pump.
