Are all cocker grip frames compatible?Because I currently have a cocker with a busted grip frame and it seems as though nobody sells cheap slider frames,so can I put a hinge frame on it?
Or does anyone know where I can get a cheap slider frame?

Yes. And good luck. After years of hinges and e-blades being the frames of choice, many 'cocker owners have come to remember the magic of the slider. These days, they're commonly priced at $50+.

Just note that you'll likely have to swap your 4-way outputs to the ram.

customcockers.com or mcarterbrown.com is where you need to go to find used sliders. Some companies are still making new ones like Benchmark but you pay for it.

Thanks to both of you.Also,does anyone know if it is possible to run a 12 gram changer straight into the vertical ASA?I heard somewhere that it would take some fiddling to get right,but could be done.

Definitely possible, though you may need to swap valves/springs.

nvm,apparently PBgateway is very helpful in this case :P
Also,Where could I get a stick feed that could be fit on a right-feed cocker?Or do I have to use brass tubing and pipe solder :(

PPS sells one for $40. You could probably build your own for a lot less, but it might not be as pretty. :)

I am considering scrapping this cocker.I had planned on fixing it up,using it some,then selling it.But it would be one expensive little bitch.It would cost about $100 to fix up,which leaves no room for profit. :unsure: :(
At least I still have my sniper :)

I already have one.It consists of a small length of PVC piping and a 45 degree elbow.If I sell this one,I could use that money and get a trilly,then proceed to upgrade the shit out of it uselessly.

don't get a trilly you can't really upgrade them. can't get any spring kits for it which is a big thing, or new valves.

Yeah,I am really indecisive as to what to do about this.I could spend the extra money and fix it,or sell it and be happy cause I actually have money.I may just cast her aside for now.
