ok fixed all that!

as this is a 2006 sidkit I've had to completely modify the bolt lever mechanism to work the same as the WC. its been a hell of a job and still doesnt completely open like the WC, though it's the best I could do with the mechanism. I'd be interested to see how sids WC bolt lever mechanism opens (anyone?)

I also screwed in the barrel to the bulldog frame as I figured epoxy glue just wouldn't be strong enough.



also added this casting of a round nut to the receiver end cap.



more updates soon.

cheers guys Smile

work is going at a snails pace with this project as any time I get to do major modifications is sucked up by smaller things like this:



I modded up a casting of a weaver I got from OB. basically split it in two peices and sharpened up the details, embeding an allen screw at the bottom hidden with a layer of metal. I was going to buy a real weaver knob I saw earlier today, though this one looks good enough for now.

the switch was a 2006 sidkit switch which is alot different to the wc, so I re-shaped it. I've actually added a bigger bit of rod now from a nail, and the plate under the screw was cut from steel sheeting. the screw is around 6mm diameter.

some references from the tomenosuke blog:

got the trigger mechanism set up and it works great! I created grub grews for all insertion rods just to eliminate the glue factor. I reshaped the safety switch again and added a smaller screw. this also holds the bullet chamber properly secure now after fiddling with the mechanism.



so the mods and build up are pretty much done. all I need to do now is to engrave the numbers and symbols (something which I am dreading) and shine everything up ready for blueing and painting. so another couple of months I reackon Rolling Eyes

I've been looking for this screw. Any idea exactly what it's called or identified as? Like the type of head shape and length?

round head or button head slot screw I think. around 4 or 5mm in head diameter. mine still isn't totaly correct, but thats a case with most of this blaster, so not too bothered.

I do have an extra original screw and washer for this. It is far too short to fit through a thicker Sidkit release switch though.

just when I thought anything else couldnt go wrong with this (so much has done so far) I got all the parts nice a clean for the paint job. This has been a complete disaster as the finish was pretty poor due to me not priming the parts first and using this metal paint which was giving me a bit of an orange peel texture.

so now I have to figure out how to strip this crap off and without using anything that could potentially melt the milliput areas I filled in.

and I thought painting would be the easy part! Shocked
