    The rear frame screw needs to be left alone for air passage and sear alignment. The front frame screw location needs to be modified for proper body alignment. I will try to draw something up to better illustrate this, but never done any CAD. In my day we used a pencil and straight edge. If anyone is good with this kind of thing, and understands the concept, your help would be appreciated.
    Be Safe!

    Pretty crude, I know.


    Or does this just make it more confusing?

    nope thats good

    what I meant by my last post was not milling out the rear screw hole.....I meant this would cause problems with switching valves because of the extra space between the rear frame screw and the sear.(unless this difference is accounted for in the hole placing on the valve or sear)

    that is weird though, I thought they were the same

    edit: IDK how I got onto the idea of changing valves since it has nothing to do with this thread....just popped in my head.

    That seems like a fairly simple fix though, i mean it is a minuscule difference that shouldn't be too hard to correct.

    I have a couple of ideas, but want it to be perfect. I could do it by hand, but think I will machine it so it looks good also.

    Would you guys like me to look into making and stocking this part? If so, I would need to borrow a valve for a few weeks. Also, are you guys looking to use the RT valve with a NON RT rail?

    If I'm stepping on any toes, I'll back off. No problem.

    LMK

    That'd be cool, something lighter, cause i don't wanna touch my stock rail.

    I'd buy one, if indeed it did work successfully in allowing a ULE body to fit on an AutomagRT.

    That'd mean I wouldn't have to search for another 'mag to use primarily for the warp and using the RT only when I feel old school, I could just upgrade the one I have

    From the looks of it I guess all you need to do is get the "sleeve" and drill a slot into the rail and grip-frame to move the screw forward...
    Unless the valve and bolt had some crazy tolerance issue with the ULE body, but the valve is essentially the same as the others in dimentions, just the reg is thinner, right?


    Idk if using an RT valve on a non RT rail would be possible... you'd have to mill the rail and replace the field strip screw with an air-fitting, I think.

    Would be difficult to route the air on a non RT Classic rail. Not impossible, but modding would take alot of work, plus the banjo bolt orings need to seal in the rail.

    I would think it's just a matter of drilling three holes, and tapping one of them.

    For those that are interested in this mod, I have finally gotten back to working on it. I am working on drawings and set up some time to mill the prototype rail. I have tried to make this mod reversable, but have determined it would make servicing and assembly a nightmare. I don't plan on going back to stock, but those that do should see about finding another rail to use. Once the drawings are complete, I will ask someone if they would like to produce it, since some machinists have showed interest in doing so.

    Since the rail needs to be done to really make this work, look for a new thread in the future with a working prototype rail. I want to make this work before sharing anymore.

    I'm sorry that you didn't get the message. Atech joined a group of lemmings near Niagra. No barrels were available.

    Unsuccesful attempts at jokes I imagine.

    I have been trying to get a budget old school setup for my boy to get in the game, something he can't short stroke without batteries, but still have a peice I wouldn't mind having in the collection. Since I can do this on my own time, I have been occupied with that lately, (splashkitsrock420 knows what I'm looking for).

    This project is still in the works, but back door machine work takes careful time management and planning to not get caught, and possibly worse, fired.
    Plans have been worked out, drawing are getting tweeked, and machines are waiting. My company has had a large backlog, preventing time to use their resources.

    I would like proof of my concept before posting anything more, but feel free to PM me for information on this project.

    Poor sense of humor mainly. Atech followed the lemmings over the cliff (Niagra Falls) and there was no barrel to save him. Mainly, Atech hadn't been heard from on this thread for almost 2 months and most likely was busy.

    Reading his post today, he has been busy.
