FreeFlow Rhythm Body without a Detent

Benji Silverstein purchased this FreeFlow Rhythm Autococker body recently and it’s the second body he’s found over the last couple years that isn’t drilled for a detent. It also features the unique FreeFlow feedneck which I show in the video.

Looking closely in the video we can see there is no wire detent, no ball detent and no other method of retaining a ball in the breech until the bolt and close and put the ball into the barrel.

Benji asked around and was told on the FreeFlow Technology page that the first few bodies of the FreeFlow Rhythm were machined without detents.

Buddy Baur, of Freeflow Technologies wrote in one thread on facebook asking about the provenance of this Autococker body that this is “One of the first 5 [FreeFlow Rhythm Autococker Bodies].”

Baur goes on to write, “This was a WGP body Rhythm. When we were still figuring out milling/design stuff. There were a few more like this. Not sure if it was 5, but I remember a red one and a red black acid one too. Those feednecks were horrible, but I haven’t seen one in forever.”

In around 2016, Benji found another example of a detentless FreeFlow Rhythm body with some RaceGun Parts he purchased. The Rhythm body from RaceGun was also lacked a detent and was raw. The cuts look close, if not the same.
