bolt action?

after taking a look at my friend's K1 it looks to me like having a bolt-action option for my kp2 looks fairly easy. to me it looks like Ill just need a new bolt with a handle and the set-screw that grabs the hammer at an angle rather than straight down. am I missing anything else?

The bolt should grab the handle the same way as before, I believe.

Any number of airsmiths on here can do it, specifically florypb.

Look up his products list iun the dealers section. He sells a bolt/handle combo to make a bolt action

If you wanted to do it yourself, and have a drill press, you could simply modify your existing bolt.

I was just thinking of getting a seperate bolt entirely so I dont mess w/ the beautiful vintageness of my KP2. I had been looking at flory's but I just wanted to make sure that all that was needed was a bolt replacement and nothing else.

Just keep in mind the cocking lug will be offset from the gas transfer hole when you make your bolt. As viewed from behind the cocking lug is at about 8:00 with the gas transfer hole at 6:00. Lifting the bolt handle moves the cocking lug down into the center slot of the top tube.

One of the advantages of the bolt action bolts is the cocking lug is out of the way of the hammer, and doesn't get beat on every shot. I had two Sheridan rifles and converted a bolt to pump, but kept a bolt set up...I need to find that stuff.

It depends on if you're pulling straight back or rotating and pulling.

I have a bolt action without the handle. It's a Cooper T bolt with a large wheel on the back. I also don't have a trigger guard so when I pull the bolt back I don't have to search for where the trigger is...you just slide your hand down. Pretty fast. So i guess I'm saying you might want to just experiment with it as it is first.
