Products Used:
FBM Full Gothic body, Free Flow Body, Stock
Marker Setup: FBM Half Assed Cocker w/ E2
Freak Barrel w/ SS inserts
68/4500 Max Flo
Strengths: Super Light, looks great,
Weaknesses: Aluminum slider instead of delrin, COST $$$, minor cosmetic flaws
Review: If you get the full body kit, comes with feed neck, front block, derin bolt w/ pin, slider, valve, asa adapter, pump arm and hammer. Basically, everything you need except the front pneumatics and trigger frame. The body is beautifully annodized, although there were some minor cosmetic flaws on mine.

This set up will allow for a higher ROF. It increased my E2 ROF by 3 BPS alone. Not only that, it is SOOOOO much lighter than the regular full body...even lighter if you get it "tubed" like i did. This will help if you are playing for a long period of time.

Also, because there is no need for a back block anymore, you can have your marker up closer to your mask. This also elimnates the need for a beaver tail as well as the twisting effect of your pump arm w/ back block even though the half assed cocker still uses a shorten curved pump arm.

My only complaint about this kit is the co$t. The body alone will cost $295. A full body kit will cost you around $500 depending on what your specs are. If you already have a a cocker body, it will cost you $150 to do conversion and $100 for annodizing.

FBM can also tapped holes for eyes for those of you who uses E1, E2, and Race frames.

Please do note that although these are 2K+ bodies, it takes pre-2K asa adpaters and angel threaded feed necks. Other than that, all 2K products are compatible.
Conclusion: If you have the money, then go for it. I would suggest getting it as a mini and tubed if you want to lighten the weight even more. which would cost you and xtra $50 or so.... but the less weight is definitely worth it!!

Can't give it a 10 because of cost alone....and the rating drops to a 8 only because of the cosmetic flaws i had on mine.

I just recieved my halfass kit and the ASA is the same as the one from my 2k3 VF... My stock WGP body also has an angel threaded feedneck...
