a simple approach would be a new body for a hammer 7 that was bolt action.
air in grip wouldn't be possible that way though.
I was thinking a longer bolt action breach using a longer bolt for a phantom with SMG type clips that run through the breach horizontally. The easiest would be for the shooter to move the clip manually after pulling the bolt back - similar to BretG's rotary sheridan rifle. This setup should still allow air in grip if desired.
