Angel Frame Conversion?

I was wondering if any of you have or have seen a cocker with an angel frame. I've been told it can be done and i was wondering if it would be a good alternative to the RaceGrip pricewise. plmk and post a pic if you've got one.

Man, you bought it hook line and sinker. Angel grips can not run a 'Cocker. Sorry.

I have seen airsmiths taking an angel frame, which doesn't bolt onto a cocker, and modifing it to be setup like a Tiny Tornado frame. They use a ram powered sear release mechanism that is powered by a 2-way solenoid mounted in the front of the gun. They also use a a 5-way solenoid to run the front end. It is powered by a 9v in the grip and a Morlock board. And it will cost about the same price.

In fact, I even saw Doc Nickel's electro, and it was very nice, solid all around, and had a standard Benchmark frame. Compared to the F5, well, it made the F5 look really bad. Just horrible and under thought. I laugh after seeing what Doc did compared to Sandridge.

I got to handle it and cycle it, and as an alternative, it is cool.
