« Part 4: Motivation to get it finished Part 5 of Winchester Lever Action Rubber Band Rifle. The Build series no next part

I am rarely defeated but this one has got me.
I am 18 months on this thing and I am over it.
The amount of time I have spent on it is getting ridiculous.
I have to get it finished in some form. I have decided to get on and finish the outside, It will be cock able and make a bang but it wont fire elastic bands.
Its going to require a more expert Toy maker type than me to get it operational. (any volunteers are welcome?)
Lovie Cheryl says its the first time shes seen me defeated on something like this.

Below Pics taken this morning , I,m just over it.

Nah,, I have to move forward, I will get on and finish it without the internal workings , at least it can be on the wall and look OK even if it doesn’t fire elastic bands.
I,m Definitely suited to bigger pieces of wood.

antman, I’d challenge you to a duel if I could get the right caliber ammo from Office Works,

Good to hear that but regarding the rifle, it’s way beyond my mechanical capabilities but surely there are some here that have a fix

Anthony,

Where did you get the plans for this? I’d be glad to help you with the project! I hate to see you frustrated by something like this…

I suggest u buy the real deal. I got one and it’s perfect aside from it needing a large loop lever….. but I’m a John Wayne fan

What’s the hang up on making it work Anthony? It’s a fairly simple system, I imagine we can sort it out if you’re inclined to do so. If you’re not and just want to hang it on the wall, I understand that too though :-) Or, if you want to ship it my way, I’ll be happy to see if I can make it functional for you. Gotta use that engineering degree for something besides working!

Thanks Gents,

Thanks Mike and Kenny for the offer to finish it.
(I may explore that option)

Maybe I am lacking patience,
I,ve managed to get the trigger and hammer working OK, Just after several attempts couldn’t get the firing pin and the two front internal components that house and unload the elastic bands to work properly.

What I will do is finish the rifle in entirety apart from the working parts at the front then re group.

Here is a pic of what it should look like,

Hey rc, how about snooping Google for a bigger camera… You seem to be taking smaller and smaller pictures lately or are you economising on film…? while there may be a correlation, there is still that subtle differece between film and dunny paper… with the latter becoming more available so there should be less film happening and can therefore be used elsewhere.
