another ram question

I have been asked if a G7 / G7 fly will fit an A1?
Though they where different but i do not have one to compare them .
Does anybody know , the difference or if they do fit.

Although they are dimensionally compatible, the throw is different, so you need to use a custom hammer in order to use a G7 series ram in an A1.

Thanks doc, is it the length of the hammer or the groove where the bolt pin sits in the hammer or both ?

Both. You can read a bit more about that and see a photo demonstrating the difference in the hammers in the following threads:

I have shot my A1's with G7 rams without issue. You only need to shorten the back of the hammer to make it shoot but I modify both ends of mine for improved performance. Wdp made two different tapered A1 hammers. The later ones moved the bolt .75mm forward, I assume to fix breech issues. I build my G7 hammers like the later which requires machining on both ends.
