Continued from Page 2. Showcasing the making of the airgun I designed using Buckley's
reservoir design as a base.
March 28 - 2009
This past week I outsourced the 1.0" and 5/8 bore to a local machine shop. It
set me back a few dollars, but it is okay. If/when I build more airguns I will
invest in my own tooling. I am only showing one rifle in the pictures, but there
are duplicate parts.
I didn't have the time or means to bore 6" deep. The handles have been milled
to 0.625". Received the female quick coupler for the bottle, had to buy a set.
Ordered 5/8 brass rod for the probes. I bought all the stainless set screws and screws
for these two rifles.
I have been thinking about the bottle adaptor. Think a steel part for prototyping
will be the way I go. To be followed with brass or stainless once the design is
sound and everything fits properly. More to come!
