the screws that hold the grip frame on are 8x32 instead of 10x 32 like most other cockers......its a dye thing apparently, i think all their newer guns are that way as well. should be easy to find at any hardware store.
Hopefully you can see the hole for the handle does not line up. I believe if the diameter of the pump handle was larger and the hole moved out, a straight rod could be used but I am no expert. The double bend rod I have will work if shortened but the way it torques, because of the bend, it makes contact with the outside of the ram mounting hole. Along this point, a thread or two of the ram mount on the front block appear a little messed up by the P/O, but they look repairable. I have also considered using a dremel to "mill" the whole ram mount off in order to facilitate the use of a straight rod. As I don't have any pneumatics for the gun unless I scavenge off one of my other mechs which kind of seems silly unless someone has another opinion. Can I really mess up the "resale" value anyway?
Sure could use some help from U's that have done this before on a mini frame cocker or just know their way around cocker manufacture more than I. Thanks!
