Getting the loading mechanism linked into the charging mechanism has been a headache but it is getting close.

Charge/load position, block on the charge rod moves about 80mm then hits the rounded piece on the L arm as it only needs about 20mm movement to move the plunger to the load position.

Mostly complete and had some test firing, loading works ok, just need the scope set up. Need to make butt plate and cover for the top spring.

Super cool.
See the labor in build.
I like it.
Another note or idea.
Always thought is it possible to have a two stage pressure piston off the one stroke.
