Home made bsa bullpup

    Recommended Posts

    The 2 zip ties were put there just to hold it while i got a feel for the linkages. 

    As it turns out they dont look too bad and hold it really well .i think when i build a stock on it. They will be mostly hidden and be fine .the wood stock also holding the trigger block in the correct position .

    Pleased so far. I might rough out a stock this weekend

    That trigger mech looks like a recipe for stiction although tucked out of the way and, I appreciate, easier to fit. Would something like a push/pull cable such as those fitted to car heaters be possible to fit? You could clamp the outer sleeve out of the way with a nice smooth curve which, with a nylon lined cable, would give a slick action and a bit more feel.

    Just a thought

    A pull rod or cable is always gonna be better than a push version .but the engineering required is above my resources. 

    To be fair this rod feels pretty good .

    A straight rod is better than one with bends in it .but im gonna find it tricky to get the stock round one .so this short (165 mm ) rod does the job pretty well .

    We will see how it feels when the stock is on .

    Thanks for the imput .:good:

    Obviously you can feel the trigger but would a less exaggerated curve not be better? Looks like you would have room.

    Thats a good idea .:hmm:

    I think i will try it as is first  .but if its too vauge i can always make another rod .and run it lower and straighter 

    Cheers mice hadnt thought of that .:good:

    wouldnt it be more positive with the linkage made from steel plate in the shape of a moon cresent and in the centre of it a slot cut for a guide screw ?...just a thought

    Its sitting waiting for me to make the stock.

    Its finding the time to complete it. When i do i will post the pics .

    Suffice to say it should work very well as trigger mech is nice .

    I do like the simplicity of the wire trigger connection but I also feel like Ditchie that a flat plate made from steel or for lightness ally would have less tendency to flex and be more positive.

    The joy of that set up is you can try a variety of ideas fairly easily.  How soon will you be taking orders ?:good:

    Im liking the micro solenoid route, as suggested by the car door central locking. Be a neat way of doing it with a battery in the stock. Little mill grade switch behind the remote trigger and solenoid working the real trigger.

    If only I had the time and bullpups  weren't at a massive disadvantage in HFT I might well have a go myself.
