This Lightning Autococker body kit was machined from billet aluminum and not a stock WGP serialized blank, wgp stock body, or an extrusion by Chris Ogaz at TnC Products / Ogaz Enterprises in Ontario California. So it is actually not an Autococker but a ‘Cocker’.
A similar Lignting Autococker Benji found.
Benji found a similar body to this about 4 or so years back and it was finished in a polished clear with similar with slightly different cuts.
At the time it was a mystery and we made a video looking for information and showing that body.
Benji’s body has the sight rail machined off / or flat topped and the cut throughs are slightly different lengths and positions. Otherwise the body was the same.
For several years we received no clues as to the history on Benji’s body or TnC Products, aside from seeing the logo on another body or two.
In 2018, in a post on mcarterbrown we put up to try and get some info, Chris Ogaz commented “…in case anyone comes across another this was made by TnC Products. I made them back in 2000. I made several designs of the Autococker bodies.”
