Looking for a Threaded Knob to be done

So in background, Patchwork, my pistol, has served me well for some time:

But last year, the lever action on the pistol broke. How bad? Well...

So at this point, I'd like to see if anyone would be able to make a threaded knob for the pistol, as a lever action would be too many moving parts. The trick I think would be having enough of a grip to quickly turn it to let loose the 12g since the barrel extension hangs out like it does in the first picture.

Is anyone able to help out, and for how much?

Is there something you don't like about the lever action?

what part broke on the lever?

fixing that may be easier than you think and also easier than making a new knob.

The pt extreme I think uses the same end cap. The actual lever on those is steel. I drilled and tapped mine and attached a spent 12g to it to add some length to the lever.

If I remember right though the body is not threaded for any cap, that would be the tough part

Also, side question, how did you do the brass insert on the magazine, or how is it attached? I have a friend who may want to do that

I love the lever action, it's just that the moving parts are another thing to break, putting me in this situation.

The Plunger part of the lever action broke, so it doesn't hold the 12g in the marker.

Epoxy, TyMcNeer was the one who did the job. The hole was drilled into the top to speed-load the paint.

To me it looks like a pin broke and thatís it. Can you take a pic in better lighting or show how itís supposed to look?

Here is the picture as requested in better lighting, Superman. How it's supposed to be is in the first image in the thread, where it was still on the gun and not in pieces. rednecksniper was the original designer of the lever, and unfortunately he is no longer around

I have a similar home-brew lever changer. There would have been a small brass wheel on an axle/pin in that front-most forked piece. When you close the changer to pierce a 12ie, the wheel would ride on the cammed section of the lever. A longer than average co2 cartridge probably broke the pin and the wheel fell out, lot of torque going through that small piece. I think that's why the pierce pin on other lever changers (ICD for instance) is spring loaded - so longer cartridges don't stress out the mechanism.

Could be replaced pretty easily.
