So after getting the first introductions over with.
if anyone here knows how a 1992 cagiva mito 125ccm looks like.
I Have one
(You can thank Nobody for the images cuz he so elegantly put it
|I wouldn't know a cagiva if one landed on me.|
Well over to something more interesting then maybe.
When i first started buying my equipment, i was looking for a good paintball sniper rifle, and not being satisfied with what i found or thinking the price was to steep, I decided to build me one.
so i figured i needed a couple of things.
first on the list being a marker i could cannibalize for my purpose.
second, spare parts.
needed a weapon stock.
a freaking long barrel.
trigger plate for the stock
so all these things i have, except some needed spare parts.
first on the agenda was to mill out of the Remington model 7 short stock i got so the freaking marker body would fit, not an easy task considering my garage mainly consists of corded power-tools, not really the prime equipment for milling out of a hard ABS- plastic stock.
I do however have a tower-drill ( if that makes any sense ), with a 3 fase (400V) connection.
tried to mount the stock in a movable (read:not mounted anywhere) vice and putting it underneath the drill with the stock in. Putting a wood-mill bit on the drill, strapping the drill down with an elastic band, Not the best solution i might add.
Well, managed to mill out an irritating post that blocked the marker in the rear of the stock. Moving on forward the front of the stock where i need to mill out approximately a 2"x1" with 1.5" depth. That did NOT work well with the setup i had.
Giving up for the moment, realizing i need some kind of cart that i move back and forth while the stock is mounted in the vice, while I'm milling
it's like 11 am and i end up in front of a desk with a pencil, paper, rubber and a vivid imagination. and i end up with this
Driving like H*** around town to get what parts i need i end up with something like this after working 5 hours straight on this thing from 6.30 AM to about 11.30 AM
Still not done yet, as i need freaking lots of nuts to get it done.
and 2 pieces that attach the cart to the frame via the threaded rod going straight through the center of the frame.
This thing will mount to the horizontal plate that is vertically adjustable
and this is what i made a mockup of playing in Photoshop.
wanted to get a bottom fed, bolt action rifle that uses First strike bullets
Realizing a bottom feed rifle would take to freaking long to make, i have decided to go with a side feed spring loaded magazine that will take 5 or 10 round tubes (homemade), it'll get a scope 3-9x40 scope, and either a remote tank or Co2 cartridge right where the magazine would have been.
So that about sums up my first build-to-be.
it's only too bad I'll be home for about 10 days and then going on a 3 week road-trip in central Europe, when parts are coming in from the US
