Trracer lever
 
Here's what I built just for fun. Single shot lever action rifle.

Nice

External cocking or internal cocking? Looks good none the less.

A little bit of both ... I think?!?

Remote line until I get an ASA threaded 12 gram drop out changer that will go in the stock.


Thanks for the compliments. I love challenging myself with difficult projects. I wish I hadn't sold my first project; double barreled mag. :(

I thought I've seen that lever traccer somewhere.
The trigger group is exceptionally clean. How is the throw on the thing? I suspect it probably has a very long throw for being a nelson valve train. Regardless, you have it super clean and simple.
Kudos to you man!

Correct if I'm wrong but I'm thinking the throw means the distance the trigger needs to be pulled to actuate the sear. The measurement from the tip of the trigger from ready position to firing position is 3-4 mm.

If I can get my hands on another trracer cheap, I'll like to try converting it to an over under like the the Peacemaker.

The throw is meant by how far you have to "throw" the lever to make the marker ready to go.

The nelson based levers that I've seen in the past have some pretty long throws because of the design.

loving the look of that trigger group. Trying to make one at the minute myself. Having a nightmare with it! Good work that man.

suaze 05-14-2012 02:22 PM

The throw is a bit less that the Winchester which is the look I was trying to go for. Here's a pic from last week with it in the cocking position.
