Pellet Gun Magazine

Unread postAuthor: Lentamentalisk » Sat Feb 27, 2010 7:31 pm

I am buying the Crosman 1377 pellet pistol in a few days, as it seems to be getting outstanding reviews.
The one thing that I dislike is the need to hand load a new pellet after every shot. Since it is bolt action, I was thinking some sort of clamp on magazine might work best. Do you have any experience with clamp on magazines, or ideas on how one would go about making one?
Gravity fed seems to make the most sense. Mainly I am worried about keeping the bolt from catching on the next round when it is chambering one.

I have a 1377, I love it.

There's a guy who makes a steel breech with a pellet magazine, but I think it's only in .22 (for the 2240 crowd). You may want to check it out:

It would probably fit on a 1377, if you did a 22 conversion. Of couse, you could just check it for an idea.

I hadn't even thought about a tube mag, because it generally is too complicated to do some sort of elevator, but maybe some sort of push rod that just knocks a pellet out, into the breach, could work...

There is a magazine coversion for the Air Arms S200 single shot bolt action air rifle, the design might be relevant to you.

The Career series of air rifles have an inline magazine, you might want to look into that too.

A spring loaded "stick" mag that held say 5 rounds could be made very compact, or stick to 0.177" lead BBs and make a paintball style hopper ;)

So basically all you need is a small version of Old Shatterhands magazine.

It's a simple design.

I believe you need at least the Crosman steel breech kit as well.

BtB: I was thinking exactly that, but the problem is that I plan on using pellets, not BBs, so I don't think they will exactly behave the same changing directions. I still want to do something like it though, more in that style than a rotary mag, if possible.

I took a very good look :roll:, the Monsoon magazine is spring loaded and is a pain to dismantle and put back together, let alone replicate.

There are simpler solutions to the matter ;)
