Good Gun for Bolt Action Mod?

Hi all, I've recently been wanting to make a bolt action rifle mod, but am unable to find a gun to satisfy all the wants. Here are all the criteria I'd like it to have:

1: Must have commonly available modern barrel threads (cocker, spyder, 98, a5, hell even VM)
2: Must have a plastic grip frame (for easy cutting to fit in a rifle stock), or have a grip that is removable from the rail.
3: Must have a plastic body [for ease of cutting off the feedneck for fsr, and dremeling the pump arm slot out to rotate the bolt down (will be true bolt action, not straight pull, for less velocity loss).
4: Must be accept constant air
5: Must be able to handle hpa

Any gun will work, as long as it meets these criteria. It can be anything from a nelson or sheridan pump to a 'broken' blowback. Even if the gun does not satisfy all the criteria, i'd love to hear your suggestions.

Empire trracer. No plastic body... but milled for fsr already. Plastic grip... cocker threads.

Hammer 7 is the extremely obvious choice.

I've considered all these choices already. In fact, I already own a hammer 7, but am going to be keeping it in its pump configuration. The only problem with the trracer is the lack of plastic body to Dremel so the bolt can be locked in the 'closed position.

It's thin aluminum... Pretty sure you could cut the notch without a dremel.

You can also cut a notch with a dremel. It works on a phantom, I'm sure it would work on a taccer.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think the trracer take the cake on this one.

or you can send it to someone to have your bolt slot cut. Should be pretty simple.

The body is so thin on a trracer... should be simple.
