Given the rumblings of near total gun control in the next few years, I am looking to ensure some degree of protection on my part. In my eyes, this means circumventing their system all together.
So far, I have the base ( A Crosman 1377 air pistol ), the barrel (Unrifled 5.47 mm piping), and Crosman sells a solid steel .22 breech. The idea, in my mind, is to place a spring loaded hammer in the back of the barrel, and cock it using the built in spring that cocks the trigger. So at the very least I could assemble a single shot, .22 caliber pistol.
However, one .22 isn't going to do very much. So, I'm trying to figure out how to make it into a multiple shot weapon. So far, the best idea I've had is to cycle the gun using the same cocking mechanism I mentioned above. The pressure chamber, since the gun won't be able to use it, would have a tube of .22 rounds placed in it, which would feed rounds to the breech.
If anyone has a picture of a lever action rifles feed and loading mechanism, it would be much appreciated, or any other advice on assembling a zipgun.
