    Seems a waste of an Xvalve to use it on a pump, but it is nice.

    Plan B is moving along as expected. Parts are being made within acceptable time frames. Panels and triggers were first and should be done in the next few days. Then onto the frames. These of course take longer as they are far more complex.

    I cant wait to get them so I can get it all off to anodize and out to everyone. Then onto more projects that have been backing up.

    More progress.

    Keep in mind this is just the first frame and only Op #1 is done. So there is still alot of work to do until the order is complete.

    Update to go with yesterdays now that I can connect the phone to a computer.

    Frames are done on the machine. Now they need to be deburred.



    Once I have frames I will be requesting the deposits from those on the list that have not made the deposit. Then I will be sending them to ano.
    The deposit it to make sure you get the ano choice you want.

    Hey Cougar, I'm starting to get questions about the using the P90 LPR on your frame, can you answer a few dimension questions?
    Unfortunately it does not look like the KAM86 will be a candidate for the P90 LPR..

    To give you guys alittle idea of what I am up against.

    This is the box of frames, panels, triggers.....All 35 pounds of them.
    The box originally held a wheel for a car to give a idea of size.

    To top that off I had some family stuff come up that I had to take care of.

    Family comes first!

    :secretly hoping that if left in a box together, the frames might multiply :

    Not trying to change ANY facts just merely pointing out that there are many MANY other options. Why would anyone make a part that appears to only fit your LPR when you utilize and o-ring to seal and the 99.99% of other LPRs use a tapered pipe thread? Seems like a limiting factor to me. That is of course your LPR uses a 1/8" -27 straight cut thread instead of a tapered thread. Which admittedly I don't know.

    Yes everyone knows that in this day and age, so all your SA comment did was muck-up Cougars thread.

    You're making assumptions here, the P90 is an 1/8-27 NPT thread which is a standard 1/8" tapered pipe thread, it's just a shortened thread that does not rely on the taper to lock the part down. It will work in all 1/8" NPT threaded holes same as any other LPR, if there's not a flat surface to seal on, you simply use thread sealer. Besides, I've planned from the beginning to make a standard fitting for those applications where a full 1/8-27 NPT thread is more viable.

    BTW, as I understand it Keith utilizes a 1/8-27 straight thread in his frames so they can be threaded from the bottom instead of threading from the top down.

    Cougar, I apologize for this nonsense...

    Hey nerds, take it somewhere else. We have a paintball talk section of the forum for just this reason.
