WGP sniper prototype lever action autococker project with video
I have been tossing this idea around for awhile now. I think I am about ready to start fabricating some parts. Has anyone heard of this being done? I will post some pics of my progress if there is any interest in this thread.

Thought about thought was to use the stock grip frame and pivot the lever through the safety hole- that should give you a really short lever stroke.

That was where I thought i would put it initially but after starting the mock up it seemed to be a better movement with the pivot off the reg where the pressure gauge would screw in. I have some 3/8 6061 aluminum to use and no special tools to cut it with just files, drill press, hack saw, angle grinder, and a vise. Here is what the mock up looks like and no I haven't figured out exactly how the pivot will pivot but the hex holes in the cp reg are a good point to start.

Interesting..A remote reg might give you a bt more room for the lever..

Have you ever watched a Biathalon rifle in action? The cocking stroke is so short...I always wanted to build a paintball gun styled after a Finewerkbau 300 match air rifle with that cocking motion.

The lever stroke is a lot shorter than most lever actions i just hope i can still grab the reg without interfering with the linkage. The Biathlon rifle is a slick setup for a bolt action have you seen the fx ranchero carbine it is similar and has a sweet stock too. Airguns of Arizona - FX Ranchero Carbine

did some more sanding and filing.

Nice, I asked noxx for a similar lever action on a steaming phantom build(but it had two levers). Still waiting on him to just return the parts though.

Anyway for yours, look for an Asia extender that just uses a tiny air passage way. That should give you enough meat to add a pivot point
