Trracer Rifle (Now with something new)

Okay, you're probably looking at this, thinking, "Yeah, that's nice, but what's new?"

But the keener of you have probably picked up on the fact that the back of the gun extends a little farther than the last time that you saw it. So what?

Well, I'll show you what!

The business side. Many of you have been wondering how this thing gets cocked. Well, so have I. I've been using the stock handle screw threaded into the bolt, but that was too uncomfortable. So, with a little inspiration from Cheshire:

The sleeve rotates, locks into one or both sides of the pump/pull rod, then you pull back. Not sure if styling it after a mosin nagant made it easier in theory, but it's all really just fluff. A simple pull handle is probably the easiest and most effective way to go about things. Good luck!

...This is what I've come up with.

are you running it on 12g?

Captain 06-29-2012 02:12 PM

Yep, it's powered by a 12 gram changer under the barrel.

Arson24 06-29-2012 02:22 PM

I have to know, firing first strikes, is there any benefit to the hammerhead barrel?? I didn't find a much tighter group with regular paint, but initial reports say that the Hammerhead is the barrel to have for first strikes.

doubt it cause the rifling in the hammerhead doesn't engage anything .

I would say the same thing, I was never impressed by Hammerheads, except that both the OP and a respectable member of another forum have verified that there is an accuracy increase using first strikes in a hammerhead barrel. Now I just have to part with the cash to get one.

I know it's called a "bolt handle," but the word isn't meant to be taken literally.

I kid! Nice build. :D

Looks great and awesome thinking outside the box on this.
