APX6000/8000 Model 1

Postby asmitty110 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:07 pm

picked up a cheap APX6000 Model I frame and housing. I did this to convert my model III to Model I for ease of clipping onto a belt without the added belt clip holster.

Will this 6K model I frame/housing work to convert a 8000 model III to model I?

I don't think so. I have a 6k and a 7k and the 7k is slightly longer. I would think that would also be the case but can not say for sure. please someone correct me if I am wrong.

Same length, but the innards are different so the frames aren't interchangeable. Housings and control tops *should* be interchangeable.
