Project Help

Well I am trying to finally find time to finish the ol project 98c. I know I know. It's about time. I was wondering, how would I be able to cover the hole on the rear where the bolt handle goes and make the gun rear cocking with simple pieces? The custom paintjob I am working on will literally blow you away if it turns out. I kind of need the back covered to do it though. Any help is appreaciated.

Would you be able to weld a piece of metal in or use some type of filler? I thought I had a name for the filler, but I cant think of it right now. Something like a Full Boar Rear Shadow is out of the question I presume?

you want to fill the cocking slot and make a rear cocking mechanism? i always weld the slots shut but the heat warps the half and it requires alot of tweaking to get it right again so i really don't recomend this option. the problem is it is a big hole to put an epoxy in and expect it to hold, i really don't know any "good" sturdy soloution that won't fall out over time other than welding Thinking as for the rear cocking i saw a really nice setup one time that was a 2 post and the knob was spring loaded and didn't move when firing the gun, you just pulled it out to cock the gun then it snapped back in so it wasen't slamming back and forth right in your face.

I thought of taking a piece or cardboard or something and putting that on the inside. Then putting the epoxy in the hole (Something like bondo). Then remove the cardboard when it's dry. Then sand it down.

For the rear cocking, I was thinking maybe taking a rod through the endcap and threading it to go into a tapped hole in the bolt. How would I thread the rod? Would this work? It seems legit.

you would have to have 2 threaded rods because the spring occoupies the center, unless you ran the rod through the spring. it would work but you should build a guard so the bolt isn't smacking your goggles.

So make it hit a guard? I'm thinking of scrapping the idea and doing it a different way.

no just make it so the bolt extension can't hit your goggles

So make the rod only come out of the gun a little ways, and have a guard around it so that I know how far out it goes.

You mean filling in the cocking slot.

Put a piece of painters tape on the inside. Fill it in with bondo/jb weld/expocy.
Wait till it drys. Sand.

That's what I was planning on. The paintjob will be rough. It won't be perfect, but it should be alright.
