Thanks man, yeah it is a shame, maybe ill get a co2 setup for it if the final one turns out well.

It certainly is a great feeling when that first one hits the floor after being fired.

Ill hopefully start working on it this week, i'm going to try not to use any tape on it at all :)

The only part I don't have at the moment is a decent blowgun to use for the trigger.

Darkside: yeah I am using copper pipe as the shells as then I know they're the same diameter as my barrel.
Maybe I will do some carving on the stock, would certainly give it a nice finishing touch.

Wow..finally somebody got to work on the falling block.
Well...you turned it into something completely different...

Looks nice,
I'll be following your progress.


BTW..I used to look just like you!!Looked like a clip of me 15 years ago hahaha

That is...before I got into bodybuilding and lost my hair along the way...

Now I'm bald....with a horseshoe mustache, just to freak people out hehehe

Yeah I started off making a falling block, but I decided this was easier for attaching the pump handle to, I did make a working falling block as well though.

I'm just in the middle of modifying my blowgun, to make it as small as possible so I can fit it in a wooden stock

Lol thats so cool, I gave myself a horseshoe mustache on my girl friends wii, it freaks her out too lol.

I don't where camo for no apparent reason...you never know when you might need to hide in some long grass...while in the middle of a town :roll: :lol:

Mmm...we do think alike...Someday you might have to go John Rambo on someone...You´ll never know :D
It would be easier to have a stick type mag on the bottom...I think..
If you want the dropping shells..

That is very true...maybe I should start wearing a sweat band round my head just for the sake of looking cool :D

Ill look in to making a bottom mag work, the side was just easier for the way I had it set up. Maybe if I turn the whole thing on its side so the mags on the bottom and add a few spring here and there... it might work.
