And Here I was wondering what I'd do with this extra A1 frame I had laying around while looking for a frame for a Gat body I had. Cheers to APS keeping the frame screw spacing consistent across so many generations of guns. BTW someone tell the automag owners to stop buying all the G7 generation frames and tell them to start buying up A1 frames from all these parted A1s out there.
Are the regular A4 Fly eyes the same interface and work with the A1 board? Or did you have to do something different?
A1 has a connector for each side. So you have to get A1 eyes from Pat. I realized on The Gat that the ram pin ends up being behind the frame, so I'll have to figure out a way to hold the retaining pin if that's the path I choose to take.
Next step for this Angel I will be looking for reliability/consistency mods. Going to try and reduce kick, but also get a decent amount of pods out of one fill.
My goal is to be using it at practice/PSP
#1 reliability mod is DON'T TOUCH IT. I chose Angel back in the day because there was no reason to add a lot of upgrades. If you want to reduce kick find an delrin or similar hammer. While inertial mass is a contributor to kick moving the center of gravity forward will help a lot. I used to shoot my MT Fly with a 68/45. I recently picked up a Ninja 50/45 and the shorter tank moved the COG forward and now kick is greatly reduced.
Oh no worries, shot plenty of angels in my day. I always look for things to improve. If it doesnt work to my liking a simply take it out and sell it and put back in stock. I do agree though, angels are workhorses.
But what you said is sort of what I had in mind. I need to source a lightweight hammer.
