But the main attraction of these machines were his overly excessive tunable P&P frames he made specially for them. There is an incredible amount of set screws in this gun's frame, providing ways to tune the trigger at obscene amounts of precision. Couple this with AKA frame internals and you've probably got the most customizable autococker slider frame ever made right here.
Unfortunately, I've seen two of them were Ebladed and another had an Eclipse hinge frame. The incredible feature of Jimmy Wood Merlins are largely the frames, and why anyone would toss them in favor of anything else is beyond me.
That gun is just ridiculous, I had P&P cold fusion and it was impossible to short stroke.. even when intentionally trying to do so. I envy the person who owns it, let alone a jimmy wood merlin rb.

These P&P frames... Are they made by the same company as the Supercockers? They sound amazing.

Supercockers were P&P and these included the P&P sliders, so did some cold fusions. Others had WGP hinges.

Looks like some have composite frames from searching around? Also P&P?

Going to try and find a LE to buy. Heard they are harder to find than Westwood/auroras though.

As far as I know, none came factory with composite frames.. only P&P sliders or WGP hinge.

I didn't know who had it until he offered it to me. I think the Freak that came with it actually belonged to the Revenge V3 years ago.

Same company and the same frames that BBT adopted.

The Jimmy Wood Frame is unique to 5 existing though.

Yeah, they're impossibly hard to come by and make finding Auroras/Westwoods look easy. Most (not all) Westwoods will have the same frame though, if that's what you want to try out. There's also cheaper P&P offerings that pop up every now and then.

Early base models ('98 and before, I think) came with stock aluminum WGP trigger frames. You had to pay more for P&P's .45 frame. Later, it became standard, and Cold Fusions replaced the regular Supercocker (non-LE) line.

Love the ICD collection, FGB was the only person who could have had you beat on those and he recently sold off his collection. Great to see most of them went to good homes.

The ICD collection wouldn't be what it is now without FGB's help.

No problem, Jojo. I'll add you to my list of readily available nationwide storage locations. South Carolina branch.

There's no way I was going to buy everything he had. The only other one I was considering was his complete VW. But sometimes... rare markers are like manure: better spread around.
Sometimes.

There are so many variations of Works bodies and parts that it is (still) taking me some time to find one I like.

Thanks. I had a picture of one cut out from a magazine and taped to the back of a clip board I used for years. Now I have one, but can't find the clip board.

There is no museum. It'd be cool to open one, though.

A few notable overdue updates.

GMAX Shockers

One of my most frequently used work horses in 2005 was an Octane SFT. I easily put more than 150 cases through that gun. It was a love/hate thing with SP from then on. Great shooting markers with game changing innovations back then, but I didn't much care for the company itself (for many reasons). I still find it incredible how small and lightweight SFT Shockers were in 2003 as most other platforms have just caught up to now. I think a lot of my drooling in magazines in 2003 had to do with SFTs.



Hustler Shego



Stage II Aces High Merlin

I got this one back. Woohoo!
Sold it a long time ago, a couple of owners later it's come full circle. One of the few markers I've had sellers remorse with.


BPS Clamshell Twister

Really fun to shoot. This may be one of only 2-3 Twisters that I've ever seen mini'd and convertible from the factory.


P&P Supercocker Limited Edition

This one might look familiar. There's been times when I tried to nab this, but other circumstances (or other buyers) always got in the way. I'd take an exceptional model Supercocker LE (like this one) over a Westwood any day.


AKA Revenge V1

This has come to be my go-to woods gun and one of my favorites. Feels incredible during a game and is one of just a few full body V1's I've seen in a decade. The only thing that leaves this autococker from perfect would be an inline trigger frame like those of V2s and later. That would be a dream wrapped in camo.

I've never seen a v1 milled like that gunhero.. Its incredible! I have a full body v1 as well, and I love it.. Did none of them come with color matching regs/barrels? Ibe considered sending it out to have a sidewinder and ultralight tip annod to match as i love when everything matches!
