Bolt-action nerf rifle

Unread postAuthor: lucky_13 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 9:28 pm

This is a design for a bolt-action, shell ejection nerf anti-tank rifle.
Basically, I want a homemade Barrett, and I'm using my airsoft hobby as justification.
The bolt face is based on boltsniper's FAR, the shells are 6" long,the dia of shells and barrel is 1.5". The bolt travels 8.5".
Ammo is Milsim Labs M-29 rounds, or potatoes shoved in the shells.

I had plans to use a coaxial valve, and I still might, but this design uses a sprinkler valve because I've found them to be super reliable. It will be setup for pneumatic operation, with a push button in the trigger location. I have an airsoft M107 I can pull the stock and trigger assembly from.

3d Printed parts will be used for more complex parts, like the bolt face. The center of the bolt is 1"sch40, the outside is 1.5" coupler, to fit over the 1.5" shell. The gap between the two, which houses the ejector, will be 3d printed.

The shells use off the shelf pipe so I don't have to fret about losing a few.
The receiver is 2.5", which is harder to find, but still affordable.
The tank will be welded steel for airsoft tech inspection.

I would start building it now, but I'm stuck at Fort Lee.
