    Default PVC winger

    A friend of mine let me borrow a pvc winger he had laying around. I looked at it and decided to build one just like it. All I have now is the frame will be picking up the pouches in the morning from a friend of mine. Now waiting on the rubbers. The one my friend lent me works great he also has it wired for remote launch. I do not need that at this time I have two boys at home. Has anyone else ever done this or used one just curious.
    Thanks,

    I bought 3 PVC (home made) wingers, they have conduit in the PVC to add strength. They release with a Radio Shack car remote. I've never had a birdboy & these listen real good, work for free & don't talk back.

    I never did research more or figure out a good, reliable, and inexpensive way of making a remote release for the DIY pvc winger. Can anyone out there enlighten me? Just too busy with work, school, dogs, and trying to chase women to find time to figure this out

    I built a few of them out of PVC, then switched and built a couple out of EMT. Here's a pic of the EMT one.


    Here is a picture of a mechanism that I built to fire 209 primers with the wingers (or with any wingers for that matter):



    And finally a pic of a remote retrieve-r-trainer:

    Enlightenment requires a different mind set. Quit chasing women....that would take care of the need to look for a "cheap" fix and do some research......it's available, free and all you have to do is read.
