Automag valve 182 assembled with a level 5 body/breech from Bob Fowlie. I received the body and valve separately and assembled them so this is not original.
The valve has been upgraded to lvl 7. This body was brought to a welder local to Carter Machine during likely 1991 and upgraded from a direct feed to a power feed. Notice the Tri Car sight rail.
I had initially thought these bodies were welded in house at Carter Machine but William Kapes comments and corrects me:
“Nah, we didnt do any of the welding in-house. But my mag is setup almost the exact same way. Was level 6, upgraded to 7. I swapped out the body for a factory power feed when I did the level 7 update. I’ve even got those Lapco grips on mine as well.”
Kapes goes on to explain:
“We’d remove the feed and take the new feed neck we made to the welder to be attached. We also got a bunch of bodies from AGD to modify as well.”
