to load: the gun literally has to be cocked (by pulling on a piece of rope hidden as part of the match) the bb is then dropped down the barrel, and the ramrod must be pushed down to seat the bb behind the hopup rubber. note, if you push hard on the bb with the ramrod you will move the nozzle a bit back you will see a gap in the top of the reciever where the cocking device is. as long as thats pushed all the way forward there is no issue. the best way is to simply let the wieght of the ramrod push the bb down the barrel or press your thumb over the cocking device when ramming the bb down.
for black powder "smoke" effect, you load the gun, then take a thin sheet of napkin, pour a silver dollar sized amount of any white powder such as talc into the paper, and cup it at the muzzle and load it downward just enough to form a very lightwieght thin paper ball that just sticks flush with the muzzle. fire and you get a nice poof.
the gun has adjustible hopup and is able to hit a person at 100 feet away effectively. it shoots about 125 feet. the hopup is adjustible with a button slider on the right side of reciever.
I am selling this because I feel its a good workable piece to play with or for someone to build knowledge and build their own airsoft musket. I am selling it cheap because its not the prettiest musket as far as im concerned. but it shoots very well.
sorry my camera died. this is the only pic I have. so let the offers begin. please ad 10 dollars for shipping.
if someone is serious about me making them an airsoft musket I may be able to work out a deal. but I make no promises as I am busy with work atm.
