Where to halfblock?

I was going to halfblock my pump but i really don't want to send my gun out to anyone because all the airsmiths seem to have to many guns at one time and it takes to long.
Do you think if I gave a machinists what to do they could do it for me?

Careful... some of those machinists will charge you a lot. Particularly if you don't seem like you know what you're talking about.

I generally like to halfblock the top, rear half of my Cocker based gun. I'd start there.

Maybe I'm referring to the exact measurements and where to take them from? It isn't as straightforward as some folks think, but thanks for caring.

Castro talking to me about caring.

I know there was a "How To" guide in one of the PBN cocker forums.

Nope. You'll need to have a pump arm cut down or made. Luckily, that's something you can almost do yourself.

so all you have to do is cut the pump arm and then put it in the hole in the pump handle without any threading

Just buy the rod when you buy the halfblock parts.
