Bad news. I won't be able to work on the gun more until the snow melts or it gets a little warmer, since I don't want to go out to my freezing ass barn to just use power tools, which would help me get smoother cuts.

By the way Hilt, the shell stop is a u-shaped piece, one end under the carrier, the other in the magtube. When the carrier is pushed down, so is one end of the U shaped piece, meaning the other end is pushed down as well, letting another shell into the carrier. When the carrier goes up, so does the u-shape piece, stopping any shells from leaving the magtube. I'll try to get a paint picture up.

Well, you might be able to best me at that, as I might use 1 1/4" PVC. We'll see how it goes. If I can shorten the bolt, than by all means I will, and it will save me valuable space. As of now, my only concern is length. When fully put together, the gun is about 3 1/2" feet long. I'm working on ways to try and shorten it, and using a shorter bolt and smaller reciever isn't a bad idea.

Well everyone, I've solved the problem of the extractor/ejector. It's a durable, solid system, and I believe it's never been done before, so here we go:

The extractor (minus the ejector tab, just have to glue it in.)

What you see is the E/E in it's 3/4" PVC shell. The 1/2" CPVC acts as the ejector. Here's a better look.

There is 3/4 of a RFR magazine spring stuffed in there, pushing the ejector (CPVC) outwards. The CPVC was cut so only about 1/4 of the circumference acts as the ejector pin. The screw in the side is in a slot, preventing the CPVC from shooting out of the tube. What do you guys think?

As for the overall progress, only the lower reciever is left, and with Boltsniper's trigger plate system, it shouldn't take too long.

By the way, I need a suggestion for a good main action spring. I know everyone uses AR-15 springs, but since they are legally a weapon part, I may not be able to obtain one, due to my age. Does anyone have any other identical yet un-paramilitary springs?

Sorry for the double post, but the FAR extractor/ejector isn't working, since there isn't enough room in the bolt to drill a hole for the spring and ejector pin. Can anyone here give me another idea?

Well everyone, I'm off to get supplies. So far, I've decided:

-I'm going to use something like the FAR bolt, except scaled down to use 1/2" PVC shells. This shouldn't be a problem, however.

-The carrier will push down a tab that lets the shell pass out of the magtube, and when the carrier is raised, the tab is raised as well, preventing another shell from working itself under the carrier and jamming the gun.

-My plunger will not be inside of the bolt, meaning the bolt will be smaller and easier to use. The whole outer reciever will be 1" thinwall, making the gun smaller than other prototypes, which for the most part used 1 1/4" PVC.
