Bolt action question

Unread postAuthor: john bunsenburner » Sat Jan 03, 2009 2:33 pm

If i build a bold action does the barrel have to move or can the barrel be fixed and the tube ontop of the barrel be the moving part?

the tube on top of the barrel can move but you can also place the tube inside the barrel

You can pick one of both, it does not matter.
They are both done by people.
I would advise against the moving magazine and pick the moving barrel.


Or, do it even better and fix both of them, having only a moving bolt part.

Move something inside the barrel, move something outside the barrel or just move the barrel.

All of them will work but moving the barrel itself is definitely the easiest way to make a breech loader.

I always use a barrel with a smaller pipe inside of it, then cut the barrel like the picture below. It restricts the airflow just a bit, but it works well.

If you cannot understand that, then there really isn't much else i can tell you, it is pretty self explanitory.
