    Yeah, I want to see some pics when you're done. Interested to see how you implement the pump action.

    I volunteer to try it out too.

    I'm chopping up the handguard to convert to pump action. The drill rod will act as the action rod on the gas key.

    Possibly. Bits and pieces of the project are trickling in. I ordered a 5mm drill rod to act as the action rod the company sent me a 3 foot piano hinge.

    This going to be a bench upper (I'll screw together a lower for it eventually).
    I'm thinking maybe instead of drilling and tapping I'll stick a tapper pin into the hole and red Locktite with a crimp clamp to hold it in place.
    Just noodling ideas...

    What if the bolt hold open worked on every shot? Then, to fire again just release the bolt. Probably been tried, but I don't remember seeing this 'fix.'

    Saw this a while ago.

    Mounts on the rail and effectively makes your AR upper side charging. You'd still have to do all the work to stop the gas but might make it easier when your on the bench.

    Speaking of muzzle brakes, in this Godforsaken state muzzle brakes on bolt action rifles don't need to be pinned, correct.

    I'll trade you an upper of your choice from my collection. Please do not butcher a bushmaster upper!

    ...or you could trade it for a Saiga and stop trying to make a prized American pig out of swine, Comrade.



    Seriously, if you're going that route and like the brake, why tamper with it?
