Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Dye .45 grip frame, stock frame, benchmark .45 frame. This frame puts all the others to shame. (gasp)
Marker Setup: All nickel Pro Team Products 2001 Micromag RT with A.N.S. Phase II venturi bolt /w foamie, nickel AGD intelliframe (double trigger), 13" nickel armson stealth barrel, 12" j&j ceramic, chrome full length shocktech drop forward, 12 Volt Revvy /w Xboard, 88 ci PMI Pure Energy CA Tank.
Strengths: Simply the best .45 grip frame for the mag. I've tried all the others. This one is the best frame by a LONG shot. A much smaller portion of the piston rod is exposed out of the frame and behind the trigger, allowing enough room for the gun to cycle and not alot of extra length of the piston rod is exposed to shorten the overall pull. This shortens the trigger pull AND also makes it slightly harder to short stroke. Short stroking was still possible on my gun although some people seem to swear it was NOT possible. Im rather new to mags and I short stroke my pulls left and right, this frame made it a little easier to deal with. Also what was nice was the fact that it comes with a DOUBLE trigger or blade trigger, something that was unheard of before this frame came out. Compared to all the other frames, this frame also had less trigger play (didnt wiggle as much horizontally). With the extra leverage (i.e. torque) of a double finger trigger and the shorter trigger pull, there was a rather noticeable increase in my rate of fire. This is absolutely the best thing you can buy for your mag, and no I am not kidding you. I never tried out the electronic capabilities of the frame because it involves external wires and such but it is a nice feature for those who would like to use it. Oh yeah, and another good thing about the frame is that it comes with BLACK DYE STICKIES!
Weaknesses: The only thing I can really say that is bad about the frame is the forward trigger play. There is SOME horizontal trigger play (from side to side) but much less than the benchmark .45 frame and the Dye frames. What do I mean about "forward trigger play" ? That means the trigger can move off of the front of the piston rod and lean forward about 2-3mm (i.e. there is a little forward to back slack in the trigger). This is kind of a really small thing to complain about, but I mentioned here just to show that the frame isn't 100 %% perfect. I've heard that the grip screws are also easily stripped but I haven't touched them yet so I really cannot comment on them.
Conclusion: My conclusion?? This is the BEST upgrade/mod you can have for a mag period. AGD really knew what the hell they were doing when they were designing this product. Although it still has a small amount of trigger play, it is nothing to whine about compared to the sloppy trigger of the benchmark .45 frames and the Dye frames.
