    T-Rex (OLTR)

    These are assembled, pretested (Water dunk test for leaks) and ready to ship.

    T-Rex kits $110
    Purchase kits and additional services here>

    http://www.lukescustoms.com/t-rex.html

    PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING>>>

    Note on the installation of the T-Rex:
    The T-Rex is NOT meant to be customer installed, they must be installed to EXACT specifications, there is no room for error.
    However, once your frame has been machined you can easily remove and reinstall without issue.

    Note on the Mini Vert frames:
    All the frames I have produced up to this point will require customers to send them in for proper fitting of the T-Rex.
    The V1 will need upgraded machining to the V2 design.
    The V2 frames need to be fitted with the T-Rex mount.
    I'm sorry for the hassle.

    Note on T-Rex airline milling:
    The airline channel milling I've done you years will not work with the T-Rex. The OLTR completely covers the entire top cavity of the frame, so the airline must go thru the hole in the OLTR. I couldn't go down the left because there is only one spot to drill the hole (In the OLTR) and it's super tight, no slop, tight specs. The problem is the hole would sit directly on top of the internal frame bracket, the only option was to switch sides.
    Again, sorry about the extra cost but it was the only design option to cover all geometry issues.

    Want me to send you a V1 Airwalk (#001) to see if it measures out to fit? But I want it back, lol.
    Alternatively, I'll see if I can scan some HDDs pulled from old laptops to find the old CADs.

    Are these brass, Anodized, or chromate coated AL?

    I had an Airwalk to measure, it's too close to call. I either need someone to gamble the destruction of their frame or I need the CAD's.

    The T-Rex sits farther forward and deeper in the grip than AGD spec frames are machined. The issue is the curved and filleted edge along the upper narrow part of the frame. It's possible that the machining will breach the outside of the frame.

    Bodies and valve assemblie are brass, ram is high impact plastic.

    Pardon my ignorance. Is this like a one piece pneumag setup?
    Xmag, IT Emag
    And a few other Emags.

    I've updated the information on the T-Rex, there's been some confusion with the ins and outs of the project.
    Completely my fault, the information will evolve as it becomes clear what I've missed up front.

    Real interested in seeing what a complete setup looks like. I've only seen bulky ones. :-/
    Maybe the phx should be pneu-phx!

    Check out the armory thread about the original run of these. There's a few mostly finished builds, including a few different approaches with frames and LPR configurations.

    Thanks Zulu.

    It didn't go threw, I did get an email that you were trying to message me but my mail box was full. I tried to PM you after I cleared out my mail box, however your box was full too, lol.

    This T-Rex run is completed assembled and pretested (Water dunk test for leaks)
    Tomorrow (Friday 6/5) I'm going to start machining customer rails and frames, they will ship daily as the orders are completed.

    Pardon me me for asking but I'm curious! Is this a newer version of Zap's Cheater mod? Is it an internally modified version of it? I'm very glad to see there's a proper mounting fixing on it. I always felt that this sort of mod really required a proper fixing mount/bracket.

    Its definitely not a zap cheater, the only reason one might make that assumption is because of the angled trigger rod, but the internals are completely different.
    I spent weeks trying to change it visually so people would not assume that, but that basic geometry Zap came up with solves many problems on several levels. To deviate from the angled trigger rod would require much more machining to any grip frame and take up much more real estate in the grip frame and adding cost the project on the customer level.

    You've peaked my interest!! I'd love to see a video of it in action! Could it be fitted to the RPG Chimera frame do you think?

    There's lots more info in the paintball talk thread, it's all spread out so you will have to go thru it from the start. http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...Rex-%28OLTR%29

    As far as the Chimera, at a glance it looks doubtful but I don't know for sure. I would need a CAD or a frame to measure. See post #3 in this thread.

    I'm sure this has been covered but does the t-Rex require a ULT to function properly?

    No, the ULT is not necessary but does work.

    Thanks Levi, I can't wait to hear some feedback from the field on these. Please let us know your setup when you report back.
