At Spring Pump Event West 2015, Rick “Relliott” Elliott and I took a look at Rick’s Lapco Autospirit. Rick’s Autospirit is in a little nicer shape than mine and looks complete.
Rick has recently rebuilt his AutoSpirit to get it working and it looks to be in really nice shape.
The pneumatics on his AutoSpirit’s round front block are a Palmer’s Pursuit Shop Rock Regulator, a Clippard Ram and an early Autococker brass switch.
The ram attached to the bore drop Lapco bolt with a stainless linkage arm. And the 3 way is attached to the trigger in the same way an Autococker is actuated.
The frame on the Autospirit is nearly identical to the classic LAPCO frame with one exception, their is a cut out for the 3 way actuator arm.
Rick removes the clear plastic shroud on this Autospirit to reveal his serial number, of what looks like 104.
This Lapco Autospirit was passed around on mcb from Carter Brown, to Sean Chip, to Rick where it will likely stay.
