Thanks man.
I've got the main parts done. Need to throw some wood together and rework the pump arm. I bent and shortened the stock rod, but once it's all together it's wanting to bind. I'm gonna redo one out of brass and make it a little longer.

Little update. And just for reference, the mag sight rail advertised for 1"OD bodies is more like 1-1/4" ID. I was, however, able to squeeze it in the vise and get it pinched down to fit.

Still need to redo or modify the pump rod, but here's a pic of the current progress.IMAG0488.jpeg

Thanks.

So I ended up making a brass pump rod that was a little longer to clear everything and not bind. Still need to glue up some material for the pump handle and secure the feed adapter. Also, obviously, cut down the aluminum pump handle base. Still up in the air how I'm gonna finish this. I was considering powdercoat possibly, but we'll see. The wood I'm using for the pump handle is multicolored(camo ish colors) laminated 'spectraply'. I've been looking for a cp shorty gas thru for it, the mini reg was just to get an idea.IMAG0492.jpeg1529770072357.jpeg

I love me some spectraply, if you are looking for a different color combo let me know. I have a box of it for my wood working projects.

Me too. Other than my spump, all my pump handles are spectraply. I bought a bunch of pen blanks and glued them in fours. I think for the next one I do I'm gonna try making some micarta. It's basically just fiberglass resin with whatever thrown in.

Right now this is just slipped together, but it'll get screwed to the base from the backside. The plate also has a set screw on top so I can lock the pump rod in place.IMAG0510.jpeg

Ok so... Kind of an update, but not really. I've decided to run an L-stock with a small tank on this. I'm thinking a 30.5ci clamped onto the stock. Probably run the raptor reg on the tank like I originally intended.

I still need to get a shorter set screw for the pump arm, drill and tap for a detent, and actually finish the pump handle itself.

Gotta give thanks to Ganonsgrin for the rebel grip. I wanted to keep this thing light and while the icd grip is a solid piece, its a little too solid lol.1124181624.jpeg
