00047 thanks for the pictures those pump actions would sell in california nicely are they avaliable in the US anywere?
there able to get the center line of the rod lower because there is no need for a pistion head so they can reduce the distance by close to one half.
I have considered moving the piston to the LH side and down and putting the spring in the but stock or around the pistion like a L1AI. it would look uglu an unbalanced but it would allow a amost flat cover. another option is if some one could figure out how to mill out a U shaped gas tube and a U shaped pistion with the same amount ourface area as a round piston, that curved around the barrel the center line could be reduced as well. Im sure it can be done I have seen some extruded aluminum tube that was shabed in a half moon shape and im sure there must be a way to form sheet steel in the same way.
Id like to have one of those pumps to play with. they woluld be fun in a x25 as well. Im glad that some one is thinking out side the box. seems that to many people and companys cant get away from having the crapy traditional AK dust cover and n o way to mount a scope. does the pump even have a top cover?? lools like the reciver is just higher.
