SHO Sniper II

So, a few weeks ago I was given a very sorry looking Merlin body (Autococker), a ziplock bag full of misc. parts and was asked if I could build a Pneumatic Assist Sniper II out of it all.

Well, after two weeks of lunch breaks spent in the machine shop and a few days spent after work, here she is:

Half-Block'd w/ AutoTrigger for those sticky situations where you need the extra ROF.....

Modified MacDev bolt, custom sled, Martin SS pin & slotted hammer.
Shocktech 'bomb' 3-way, AKA SCM III LPR, SCM Ram w/ QEV's (again, ROF...) and a modified AKA pump arm.
Modified CCM pump handle, modified AT, custom turned rods, a good amount of drilling and tapping, milling and lathing and a lot of head scratching on how to put it all together.

It still has a few kinks to iron out, considering I've never built one, but it works and most importantly, it doesn't leak. :lol:

Oh, BTW, 'Yochinaman' has promised to do away with that horrible botched nickle plating and go with some nice, polished anodizing. I've suggested 'black'... :ph34r:

The pump handle is connected to a three way, which recocks the marker. Then it has a autotrigger, which when you hold the trigger, and pump the marker, it fires itself when your done with the pump stroke.

Very very nice. The only ting that i would change is that the pump is kind of far away from the body, but other then that it is sick.
