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.

Unfortunately, there are Federal Laws that ban this type of activity. Your best bet is to obtain a legal firearm, now. before all the silly rules come down. You can certainely obtain a 10 round semi auto pistol or rifle which will, God Forbid, ever be banned. It is illegal to do what you are wanting to do. This is not the site for this.
If you are a legal, law abiding citizen, you like us, can purchase a good handgun or rifle.

The homemade gun is from a kit, that is sold. Blackpowder guns come under different federal Laws and regs.
As far as that zip gun (type) I hadn't ever seen it before and the (anonymous) donor is talking about making blackpowder, which is legal. I am going to bring the other Ted K gun to the site owners attention.
Thanks for bringing to our attention. Hope this answers your questtions.
