Quick loading mech for coaxial?

Unread postAuthor: sagthegreat » Sun Feb 09, 2014 4:11 pm

So I built my coaxial a bit to quickly to think about a reloading mech. Does this seem like a good idea? The bolt is manually moved up and down to allow a bb to feed into the chamber

Consider a simple Tee magazine with a detent

Or add a return spring with the bolt, similar to this

But the T-mag and the mech in your pic will be easier to construct than the one with spring.

sadly, I don't like your idea because without an air tank to fill the chamber right after the shot, it would still be better as a muzzle loader.
