Another Viper arrived today
I will have to some pics up, but I got a Viper today in the mail. It is a little rough right now. I think a little cleaning will help out A LOT. The only concern I have is the trigger pull. It is almost non existent. I think I could shoot the gun if I pump back hard enough. Weird. Maybe cleaning will help out with that too.
Here are pics after a few hours of polishing and working on it last night.
It still needs a little work. The pump handle is too tight. It rubs so much, you have to pump extremely hard to even get the bolt back. I have two other RTP pump handles, but the pump rod is about an inch too short for those handles to pump back the bolt.
I sent an email to Rick to see if he would make me another. I know he isn't around as much, but I hope that he may get back to me.
You got problems man...
It sure is looking nice!
MrBig.....Rick is pretty much out of commission. He is away from home with his parents who have a variety of health problems. I talked with his wife this week. She said he'll be gone an indefinite amount of time. He's not gonna be much help to you right now. Just FYI
I will search for another source for the rod. Do you know where I can pick up the piece that the rod screws into?
If you can get out this way or provide details I can take care of the rod. The piece at the back just looks like a coupler with a tapered nose on it. Search "10/32 rod coupling nut" and you'll see what I mean.
Are you talking about the coupler like MaD mentioned or the whole back plate piece that sets on the back of the bolt with a screw through? If it's the back plate....I might have one of those. Rick made me a couple because one of my Vipers was broken. Not sure, I'd need to dig around.
The coupler piece like MaD was talking about. I THINK I have a spare back plate as well.
You can pick those couplers up, cut them to size and if you then put it in a drill you can either spin it against a file or sandpaper to round it. I think you can get those up to 2" in length but don't quote me on that.
