Lightbulb HOW TO: Make your own Trilogy pump kit!!

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK, I AM NOT RESPOINSIBLE FOR SCREW UPS, DEATHS, DAMAGES OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT MAY OCCUR!!!
So you want to pump your Trilogy. Too cheap to shell out $30.00 for a Trilogy Pump kit? No job? 14 years old? Just plain poor? Well have no fear!! This walkthrough will show you how to PUMP your Trilogy for less than a dollar (literally!) It may be the cheapest pump kit ever!!

Before starting, I have not tested this yet, Its 9PM here, and I’d hate to wake the neighbors. This was done on a Trilogy PRO. I am not sure if it will work on other Trilogy’s but its likely that it will.

Now, you’ll need:

1x 10-32 screw
1x “mystery nut” (I will determine the size later, unsure at the moment)
Some tools, including but not limited to pliers, a VISE (necessary) a 7/16 wrench.

Now, start off by taking all the crap on the front. You can leave the nipples for the 3-way if you wish.

Take off the Low pressure reg, and the Ram.
Lets take the ram apart first.

Using some pliers, hold the ram, use the 7/16 wrench to take off the silver fitting on it.


You’ll end up with this, we need to take off the bronze colored part.


Put the bronze part into the vise, and unscrew the rod from it using the pliers. It takes some effort, but it’ll come out.


NOTICE!!
It might be a better idea to put the rod in the vise, and unscrew the bronze part with the pliers. Its crucial that the rod does not get scratched, because it needs to be smooth for pumping!! I messed up on this part and paid for it, be careful!!!

Now to work on the LPR. Screw out the silver screw until its flush with the back.


Screw in a 10-32 nut into the front. Apply Teflon to prevent leaks.

Screw it back onto the gun, I had a small gap, I am unsure why... Will test tomorrow.

Screw back on the silver fitting onto the gun.


Now lay down the pieces as show in the picture below:

That’s the “bronze part” the ram case, the “mystery nut” and the rod.

First slide in the rod.


Now screw on the mystery nut, until it stops.


Push the bronze piece into the ram casing using the cocking rod.



Holding the bronze part in the casing with the cocking rod, screw it onto the cocking rod until its hand tightened. If it doesn’t screw on well, reverse the bronze part. You’ll notice one side catches sooner than the other.

Now use pliers to tighten the mystery nut.


Put the back block on, bolt, cocking rod.
Try it out!! Move the ram casing as the pump arm, kind of hard to access huh? As a option, you can bend it away as seen in the picture. I didn’t do it (I already have a pump kit ) but im sure it’ll make it easier to pump.


And there you have it, the cheapest pump conversion for a Trilogy!! (I think)



MYSTERY NUT TBA!!

IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY GO AWAY !!!

the small gap between the lpr and body was intended to be there for the ring that held the three way hoses together neatly. even without the ring installed the gap should still be present as you see.

next you need to make a clean pneumatic assist, but that seems cool, needs a return spring imo

looks like a good basis for a bolt action mod.

It's worth a shot, but I'd put money into a real pump kit, personally.
