Here is what I have been working on as of late, I will now show you a couple teaser pictures for those of you who are visual learners and cannot understand my ramblings.
This idea was brough to me from two sides. I originally started it because Graham gave me a great idea, an Auto-breech for the BBB. Theoretically, it was perfect. No manual action needed.
The other side it came from was here, by VeggieBoy 3000. The concept of shells at first is not always the coolest thing, more of a hassle, and such. But, through error and error, I realized it was the only way to make an effective clip. Lefty proved my point yet again here.
In a way, it was an idea for a simple gravity clip fed auto-breech. Yah...
For those of you who do not understand how it works, take a look at the above links. Understand, also, these are only a few pictures to show you of what is to come.
So, in conclusion, I am making a gravity fed clip (with shells) on a breech that doesn't require yet another handle. The action goes like this.
Start with a closed barrel, no shell inside.
Push rear BBB handle, conected to barrel, opening breech allowing a shell to fall in.
Pull back rear handle, cocking the BBB and sealing the shell into the barrel.
Push rear BBB handle foward unsealing the shell from the barrel.
Turn 1/2" PVC handle to rotate PVC and eject the shell.
Return it to the upwards position, allowing a new shell to fall into place.
Pull back rear handle of the BBB to cock it and seal the shell into the barrel.
I originally put a piece of 17/32" on the BBB with plans of a manual breech. Because I use 17/32" shells, I need 9/16" on either side, as shown.
I suggest using a 1 1/2" 9/16" brass piece to secure onto your BBB, I just made a previous booboo.
Here you see the breech I cut into the 1/2" PVC.
Yes... a toe.^
NOTE: Nothing is attached, these are NOT steps.
