I have completed the sliding breach/bolt action thingyWith the dual bolt arms (primary left) you will also be able to cock this with eighter your left or right hand.
(breach cover slides back when bolt handle is rotated and cocked
back and slides forward covering feed hole when bolt is pushed forward. Will not fire ball unless lever is locked in fire position).
I also soldered the "barrel retainer rings" on the body sections and made a custom end for the bolt.
Still need to tap the arms and add the ball ends on this
(I need to buy some brass balls) but wanted to show you how it is progressing.
(anyone have any 1/2" brass balls)
More to come..
Oh-The barrel on this is a .685 -.686 i.d. bore.
It seems to be the popular bore for first strikes.

After talking to you last night, the first thing I did this morning was jump on MCB to check out the new build pics.
That sliding breach cover and dual side cocking rods are awesome!
The barrel retaining rings are badass as well.
I am very curious to see how the marker will look with the fakey lever on it. I don't know if it will make it look better or worse. I just love how the marker looks now, like something out of Firefly or a comic book western.
I'm trying to slow down on my marker hoarding and you are making that really difficult, Mr. Walz.

****ing speak up Im deaf!
Honestly dude I'd put an elaborate trigger guard on it instead of a fake lever. I'm with you on the firefly part though!

So, maybe I'm dumb. Ok, I'm definitely dumb, but...
How does the bolt work? There doesn't appear to be a slot for the top screw to slide along, only that side-to-side pivot slot.

Sorry to have to spell it out but...
What you see in the first and third pictures are the bolt in the fire position.
It has a offset pin on bolt that is locked in upper barrel slot (hard to see) and the bolt port hole is also aligned with valve port. (ready to fire)/
When you rotate bolt with arm/s, bolt pin rotates down so you can cock back and lock hammer. (Pictures 2 and 4) Sliding the bolt forward and rotating it back to lock/fire position and you are ready to fire again.
The sliding breach cover just slides back and forward with the bolt. (side to side slot enables you to rotate bolt withen breach cover..)
You MUST have been trying to make it complicated...
On the trigger guard I will come up with a design and you can let me know if you like or not...

I see it now - that whole expanse is the breech cover which is attached to the bolt. For some reason I thought the breech cover was inside the tube and you rotate the bolt to cover it.
<< Generally likeable but not that bright.

Thanks guys - I am really having fun with this build to tell the truth.
Did a little bit more..
Made the front site and soldered it in place.
Used a piece of a 45 pistol cartridge, a piece of flat 3/32 and a cutoff from a 7/8 brass tube.
Anyone have any easy plans for a adjustable rear elevator site send
them my way please.
Starting to shape up now and when the rear site is completed it will help a lot..
pic of front site..
