    Cool Hand Luke

    CHL grip frame, both double and single grip frames come 'drop in ready' for the T-Rex and LPR.
    (Can be setup as Mechanical or with drop-in Lc Pneumatics)
    This design is based off the Logic UMF frame and are being made with permission from Logic (AO Cool Hand) design is based directly from his CAD files, not exactly a copy of the UMF but more of a Luke's Customs tribute frame. Logic used 45 grips on the UMF, but I can't on these because of the Pneumatics, so they'll come with custom aluminum panels.

    This is a 82.5* frame (Same as the UMF)

    They don't look like a 45, are they considered something like a 86 frame?

    Very nice! I wanted to make a single trigger pneumag, looks like this will be the frame I'm waiting for.

    Very nice will the single trigger work with the trex?

    Man, that single trigger frame is sweet!!

    Is there a snowball's-chance-in-hell of getting one that's tapped for 45 grips..?

    Between your Mini Vert, Cougar's m86, and now the Coolhand Luke, there are 3 grip frames I would love to buy if I wasn't forced to use panels!

    This isn't a UMF so 45 grips wont fit. 45 grips wont cover the cutout in the frame nor is there material for the lower grip hole to drill and tap, it's impossible without a complete redesign. Also, my Pneumatics are not compatible with 45 grips.

    On a side note, if there were ANY options I would drop the machined grip panels in a heart beat, they are a HUGE PITFA to make and hate the entire process I have to go through in order to produce them.

    This is a tribute frame, not a copy.
    It uses Intelli style triggers, thumb screw, does not use 45 grips and the trigger pin is held with setscrews. It's also taller to make room for pneumatics and the trigger guard was moved back the thickness of the trigger guard itself, 0.10" IIRC, it balanced the look of the frame IMO.

    Awesome. What a pain in the ass it was when I lost one of those rear screws. It was almost as challenging as trying to use reason and logic on Nobody.

    How about NO panels? If 'Cockers can run with exposed pneumatics I don't see a problem with a Trex tucked inside. Then you can omit the screw holes and clearly see the nice engraving that's otherwise hidden. (If it was only $25 more like you said on FB, I'd definitely opt for CoolHandLuke prominently engraved on the backstrap!)

    The way production is setup I would need a minimum of 4 preorders to omit the screws holes other wise it would be a big hassle.

    As for the engraving on the back strap, I love the idea but it adds so many hours to an already huge project which is a tad undesirable for me to be honest. Plus it's not very fair to raise the price on the guys that have already purchased frames. If I had the 4th axis for the mill it would be a non issue, but it's a very large investment to set it up.

    I'm including a spot drill to locate the twist lock assembly hole for those wanting to use those barrels, it will stick out into the trigger guard a little ways though.

    I, too, would love a single trigger that is compatible with .45 grips. Pneumags were never my thing, but my UMF was like crack. I loved that frame.
