Convert BOC to Pullout? Can't Post

Hi All,
I'm glad the pullout vs. throw out thread is back. I've been leaning toward the pullout for my 1st rig. The problem is that virtually all modern used gear is BOC and the less expensive containers don't offer the pullout as an option.
My point is, can a BOC rig be converted to pullout? Who would have to do it? What kind of cost are we talking about if it is possible?
Many thanks in advance,
Blue, fluffy skies to ya!

Yes a BOC rig can be converted to pullout. It's gonna be pricey though! You'll probably have to buy a new p/c with the pud and pin attached to them. You will have to have the BOC pocket removed from the container and add the pud holders to the bottom of the container. Not sure what other work would be required.

As far as I know a master rigger must do the work as it is an alteration, but I could be wrong on that point.

Look around before buying; there are used rigs with pullouts out there but it will take some searching to find the one that is right for you.

pull and flare,
