Anything is possible, but it's going to be a matter of how much you want to spend on custom work.

The most immediate challenge is in the bolt retention. I have looked at designing something like a snatch grip with a quick release, but it just scares me a little.

I also though something like this may work too: http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-sp...ungers/=sxm9fj

McMaster P/N: 7805A11 or 8692A11


edit2: After looking at it some more, those styles wouldn't have a flat surface to retain the frame itself. I think P/N 8691A31 would work the best and could be used with a washer to get a better holding surface.

Hmmm... I like that quick release with the ring. I wonder if the spring tension would hold tight enough.

The main force will be applied perpendicular to the plunger assembly. I'd think it should be sufficient, but there's no real safety feature to prevent you from pulling the pin while the bolt is gassed up.

edit: I'm not sure if it's possible, but I'd suggest trying an axe upper transfer tube with this just to protect yourself.

How about just using a thumb screw from a computer case?



....might dig into your hand a bit when playing though?
