Air Challenger body questions

Picked this up cheap on a facebook group. Looked interesting and different but don't know anything about it at all. Anyone know anything about this body or Air Challenger? Google has shown me that it was an called an MG601. Opinions on the pnuematics and front block? The 3 way seems very loose in the threads unless threaded in fully. Ram shaft is thick, doesn't thread into a CCM pump arm. Takes Spyder detents and tabbed feednecks. What other top cocking bolts are out there? This one is well used and needs to be replaced. Also has an interesting hammer lug/sear area. Without the little tray piece, the hammer can rotate to either side and drag on the body.

(isn't letting me insert the images properly for some reason so here are the links)

Looks like a Taiwanese knockoff with proprietary parts and modifications to avoid too many lawsuits.

You might find that the dimensions are all really close, but not compatible with anything aftermarket, as only one company made parts that work.

It would be a nice R/C boat anchor.

Backblock, IVG, hammer, valve, front block, banjo bolt, frame screws and placement are all correct with normal cocker parts already. Air Challenger made Freeflow bodies years ago so tolerances are correct. After Freeflow folded they kept making bodies. They used the same body for cockers and a FASOR gun so they made the little tray for it to work both ways.

Fun fact: the weird little detent on the side that uses Spyder detents is threaded and fits regular cocker detents!
