So after much design work and lots of milling on a manual milling machine, we are starting to have results! The design is going to have a lever action, Winchester 1873 look to it. The receiver is being milled out of aluminum blocks, with a drop block receiver design. The lever will push the drop block up and out of the firing chamber to load a cartridge, fall back into place and have the canister ruptured by a wedge. This new design will make the action almost semi-automatic and the use of mills and lathes has made the design far more precise and ambitious. More pictures in addition to these are coming!
