The Milkor is wound when the receiver is closed up by a winding mechanism in the front of the launcher. I assume it is a ratchet with a torsion spring. I created a similar system on an earlier launcher that uses an escapement that was pneumatically powered. Using only a single piston stop sometimes allowed a chamber to sneak past if the spring wsa wound too tightly. It is true that the Milkor needs to be wound every twelve shots I believe. I have spoken wiht the president in regards to the eclipse providing a traing solution for the milkor, but the eclipse never needs to be wound or manually pumped, so it wouldn't be an exact experience.
