yea...I've seen the Shooter chassis and their other option parts...they look really nice...I thought about getting the set when I first saw it last year.... do you know how thick the chassis is...the SSG chassis I have now is on the thin side...not to great for carpet action.

For doing the chassis edges and batt slots, just use a dremel and then some 400 grit sandpaper. I get my batt slots done in under 5 mins, I use a bit that Jason C gave me for my mill, it just takes the graphite off like nothin.

For the thrust bearing, open the balls over a paper towel or somethin so they dont roll. Put some grease on the thrust washer, and a little grease on the tip of an xacto, and use the xacto to pick up the balls.

Nobody has been able to tell me how thick the chassis is, so I really dont know. It should be a better graphite than the SSG though, so hopefully it'll work well for Stockton.
