Now let me take you all threw the story of this gun, and the work that went into making it.
So once upon a time I bought a used shocker back in 06. It was a basic Silver 05 SFT with a few ups. It had a CP reg, TonTon frame, and a new ASA. Shortly after owning the gun I went out and got an AKA 2 liter for it. Got an original Dynasty board, Hybrid detents, and a NDZ feed neck. Some ware along the way I gained a few bolts for the gun, a NDZ 15* ASA, new triggers, and a few other goodies. The gun stayed just about the same till the beginning of this year.
Earlier in the year someone posted up a thread about a Techna trigger for shockers. The person (who had once played for a team sponsored by Jason and asked him to make a custom trigger for him) I then ended up buying the techna trigger from him and once I got it I looked at my gun and wondered what a shocker could be if someone put as much thought and money into it as humanly possible. I mean buy the best of the best when it comes to part. No cutting corners and NO saying “man I wish I had this part”. I wanted the lightest, fastest, most efficient shocker ever created... and was going to stop at nothing to have it
So I quickly contacted Tony Elia
and talked to him about custom milling. I told him that I wanted a shocker that was ground breaking and had the flow and look of a SL8r he told me he could do anything I wanted. We talked back and forth threw emails for a while changing this changing that. He was very patient with my stingy designing (everything had to be perfect). And after quite some time and probably a few hundred emails he made me a quick sketch and it was scary on how exact it was on what i wanted... i shipped my gun off to him instantly.
The design as stated before is pulled from a SL8r and has under milling that matches the curve of my frame, and 3 LARGE windows to drop as much weight as possible. I not only wanted a good looking gun but possibly one that is lighter than a Gmax
As soon as I saw it I was in love with it. I instantly told him that we were in business and that my gun was on its way to him. After the gun arrived at his shop we worked together meticulously on the design of the gun till we came up with this....
He then did what he does best and cut and shaped my stock SFT body into this.....
After waiting close to 5 months from the design stages to the final cut and carved body it was finally shipped back to me. During the time that the gun was at Tony’s I was collecting parts and thinking about ano. I originally wanted a basic black and red ano, but it was too basic for this gun. I then started thinking about other colors I could do. I wanted something different something hardly anyone had, something unique. I could not think of anything till one day I was sitting behind a car at a stop light and saw one of the greatest things.... a bumper sticker that was black and gold and said “Steelers” I am a HUGE Steelers fan and the idea hit me like a ton of bricks.... my gun needed to be dust black and gold. After talking to several anodizes I realized they could not create the color I wanted. No one could do gold platting till GruntBull told me that PB4Life could do 24k Gold plating.
Well being Greek and loving 24k Gold I HAD to have it. I quickly contacted PB4Life
and sent my gun to them the day after it got back to me from Tony. After a few PM’s and a little over a month PB4Life had my gun exactly how I wanted it and shipped it back to me. And I had finally completed the shocker of everyone’s dreams. It is the best a shocker could get. Nothing more could go into it to make it any better.......
