The threaded part can come out. There's a lug screw that holds it in place. Lets you rotate the barrel to switch from hopper to magazine. There is no definite word that a cocker-threaded version is gonna be released.
okay great, i did find the picture, i thought i heard or read it someplace they were going to make cocker threads for it. If not i am sure someone can make one!

yep it's a simple part to be made on CNC (or even manually if necessary)

how much would you guys pay for em?

if you're going to make one, you should design it so it can only turn one way, to protect the detents.

I'd be willing to pay probably up to about $40 for a Cocker adapter for it. Obviously cheaper is better but if it was any more than $40 or so, it would feel like far too expensive of an upgrade considering the base price of the marker itself.

To take it a step further, if you were able to make it somehow positively stop in position; so it would not only turn one direction, but stop when it became aligned.

If the knob idea takes off, or a spring loaded pin comes to be, the shooter could turn the barrel quickly into position without the added time of making sure it is aligned or taking their eyes off of the opposition.

dan, that would require adding some kind of spring-loaded detent or something... not practical considering the design of the part. having it go only one way of course is simple and an easy way of avoiding detent damage. 40 bucks is what I was thinking would be a minimum decent price to make em... I'll consider it but I've got other stuff to work on (and pay for production) first.

while i agree with you, and as much good as this gun is for existing, it's still a beginner gun and should be designed as idiot-proof as possible. your manual writer did a good job but i can't say your designer didn't drop the ball here, even though making something this awesome is worth a big pat on the back.

i have not looked at the detent. would something like this sleeved onto a detent help make sure the breech doesn't turn wrong? then just slot the bolt.

I think the best modification to save detents is to groove the bolt all the way around. I think it wasn't done from the start because the flat on the bottom for mag rounds but I don't think it will hurt anything. Once we can get spare parts i'm gonna try it out.

Played a few games with my hammer today. I found it hard to aim with the back bottle asa gonna try to get a bottomline for it . Also I have a 14" trinity barrel that is rifled with a .687" bore wasn't much difference between normal paint and FSR on the chrono

I have a spare bolt for the first person to PM me. I'll cram it in a yellow envelope for you.
