removing pump handle from a halfblock pump?
 
Hey guys,

This is sorta an embarrassing question, as I'm generally the one giving advice when it comes to Snipers and Nelsons at my field, but I've never owned a halfblock sniper before. How do I remove the pump handle and arm from the gun?

when you pull out the bolt pin, if you cock the handle back as far as you can, does the sled clear the body, enough for you to "fold it over"?

If not, see if there is some grooves on the pump guide rod coming out of the banjo that you can grip with an adjustable wrench and unscrew. That thick black guide rod is only screwed into the gun about 1/2", so if you can unscrew that, you can simply twist the pump handle & guide rod assembly to the side, and carefully slide it towards the back of the gun till the sled is free

thats the one thing i didn't like about the 05 BM as a pump is that there is no good way to slide the sled out while its on the pump arm.

Sled doesn't come out of the body, but thanks Mike. Pump guide rod doesn't have any groves.

Anyone else?

And this is one of the reasons why despite loving the idea of a halfblock I will probably never own one. Simple things are a PITA with them. Give me a full body sniper any day

Your best option would be to use a small strap wrench to unscrew the pump guide rod so you can pull the whole thing out sideways.

Good luck!

You should be able to turn the pump arm one way or the other until it is unthreaded at either the sled end or pump handle end. If not, I don't know.
Also worth mentioning to you and some other folks, this is NOT a halfblocked marker, it is midblocked. Halfblocks are very easy to disassemble.

yea it sounds like removing the pump guide rod is going to be the best route. Just be VERY careful that you don't nick or scratch it, it could affect the smoothness of the pump stroke. Grip it from the very back, back where the pump handle doesn't touch it.

...

Take the barrel off, pull the bolt pin and bolt. Loosen the set screw on the Gat Products guide ring, and rotate who whole pump handle and guide ring away from the body.

Done.

This is how I got mine out.
