Doesn't fit, many grips don't fit right, grip panel screws are oversized
It seems that all Dye 45 Autococker slider frames have the sear sitting way too high out of the frame. This makes timing the marker impossible in my case, as the sear actually catches on the FRONT of the hammer (not the lug). Dye is sent me a new one, missing the setscrews, and it had the exact same problem, plus a ding! They don't make or support them anymore. I've compared the same sear and trigger plate in both these frames and the stock STO frame made by WGP, and there is a noticeable difference of about 3-4mm. That's a lot! Don't buy this frame, even if you do find it!
Edit: Now I've gotten my third frame, and it has the very same problems, and again, they sent me one without setscrews! Not only that, their sole customer support person never seems to return her messages and nobody else wants to take responsibility. It's a $60 paperweight.
If you buy it you may very well need a custom fitted sear or trigger plate, and that's a pain in the butt!
