Been doing a bit more today. I,m going to use a bit of Commie barrel just to try it out - you never know, it might be alright . I once used a piece or Relum barrel on one of my pistols and it worked pretty damn good  :o . I found that I had run out of gauge plate to make the trigger sear but i,m getting some more tomorrow. That means all I have to do is make the sear , bolt assembly and drill a hole in the stock for the gauge. So , next week I should be able to test it  :) :) . I just hope the pre - chamber ( the space in front of the firing valve ) is big enough otherwise i,m stuffed . If it isn,t i,ll have to start again  :-\  The rifle will have an adjustable hammer spring and a variable transfer port a-la Air Arms. I don,t think it will look very pretty but, hey, I don,t think the rats will mind  8)

A lot of hard graft has gone into this. This is " her " in the " white " but running. She,s running along at just over 10fpe - good enough for rats . There,s still some work to be done like fitting her with a better barrel , fine tuning the trigger ( single stage - easier to make ) and , after plenty of testing , powder coating her . Wodga fink?

Looks really smart,is that a permanently attached filler above the bottle? how tight a group does it print on a target?

The filler is permanent , pity it,s so long , but I already had it in my box of spares. I got the idea from Dr Bob,s fill kits for Rapids. As for grouping, as I said in my earlier post, the barrel is just a temp until I can get a better one. Nevertheless, I printed a couple of nice groups this afternoon at only 21 yards mind. Tomorrow I have to make a single shot pellet tray then I,ll make a manual magazine system like the one I made for my Logun Solo. I have to say, it,s great being back in the man cave actually making stuff , keeps the old grey matter working.
