    pull charging handle back,
    charging handle pulls hammer/pin
    sear catches the hammer/pin,
    let go,
    spring pulls charging handle back.
    pull trigger,
    hammer moves forward,
    hits the schrader,
    hammer/pin comes to rest near the end of the closed off slot.


In the first rifle I was going to make, there wasn't any room for this system. But... since my original trigger design was a pain in the rear I decided to change the rifle I was gonna make to allow this kind of firing mechanism.

Its not finished yet but it works :D

I still need to machine the firing pin because its still too fat and make the charging handle - which will be just like the sear but turned for 180° and perform a different function. Then add a few springs to reset the trigger/sear and the charging handle, polish the whole thing and attach it to the schrader :D

“The combined synergy of a man and rifle is matchless.
The steadiness of hand, the acuity of vision and finally
the art of knowing how to make the rifle an extension of the
body all equate to the ultimate synthesis of man and machine.”
