    one question. What happens with the barrel detent used to keep the mag barrels in? is it still in the rail or did you take it out?

    This is still a work in progress, but I had
    to get some pic's up before I was lynched
    by the Wisconsin contingent.
    I know they're not the best pic's, but
    let me know what you think of it.
    I should have pic's of the completed project,
    by monday

    That's pretty nice man. The body matches the rail real well. If It was annoed black it would really flow. One question, did you take these picks before the feed was threaded or does the hopper go directly into the body?

    No the barrel detent has been pressed out
    its EASY just press it from the bottom side
    of the rail.

    for pic's of finished Sluggo's.

    Oh, I guess it was just me then. The glare on the inside of the feed hole made it look smoothe, like there was no threads. Oh well still looks sweet. Congrats.

    Yes the marker work's, it's been tested.
    I have the OkieBob seal of approval.
    as far as doing more milling
    I prefer to deal with that in P.M.'s

    I LIKE IT! Nice and simple and smooth. You use a cocker detent? Sure I will sticky this up top! Lets roll!

    Question whaza?

    ok first of all thats awesome. i wish i had the knowledge and skill to do that. but two questions about the slug body. this is just an observation: the barrel pin/detent (whatever that thing is that locks the twist lock barrels in place) looks a little out of place. at first i thought it was the angle but it seems a little off. also im unfamiliar with the whole process but do you have to make your own feed neck? i never realized the feed necks were threaded. can you use other feed necks like angel feed necks?

    i mean milling on your own slug

    What you see is not a barrell {sp} detent
    it's an autococker ball detent.
    Yes this boby is threaded for an Angel
    feed neck, at the time of these pic's
    my neck was still being modified by
    my brother, so it's not installed yet.
    I should have it tommorow, I'm looking
    at making it a No-Rise that's why my
    bro is doing what he's doing.

    Tippmannman: That pin is the ball dedent that you're looking at. The new slug bodys have threads that accept cocker barrels so there is no use for a twist lock pin.

    looks great, the only thing i would suggest is to smooth the back of the body where the valve is so that it wont look like it drops off, but smoothly transitions from the valve to the body.

    What like it can't be done, I think I just proved
    that wrong. I'm just the kind of guy AGD made
    this body for.

    thanks for the reply FESTUS33. if i got a slug body (long story but basically i need a new mainbody if want to change barrels and i prefer autococker barrels) is it ready to go if i just got an angel feed neck? in other words. did you have to do anything to make it usable. im seriously considering the slug if its that easy.

    He had to thread it to take the cocker detante. There was just a location hole when he got it.
