Looks like they have a divider and they let the cartridges be turned a few degrees off of the centerline.

Lets hope it works.

The thing that has always driven me bonkers is how many modern .22 LR firearms come with magazines that would make Kalashnikov feel cheap.

Little pressed steel things with plastic followers, dinky springs and such.

This one looks like an actual magazine, look at those massive feed lips.

Question...

Below is a screen shot posted on another forum, taken from a famous scene in 'Dirty Harry.' Can anyone tell whether the hammer on Eastwood's revolver is cocked?

Hard to tell from that angle, but it appears to be cocked or half-cocked.

Doesn't looked cocked to me. That Model 29 should have a hammer mounted firing pin, which I can't see in the pic. The cylinder flute would be rotated up at 10 o'clock or so if it was at half-cock. A Smith doesn't half a half-cock notch, you have to hold it by the hammer or trigger at half-cock.

I checked 3 of my N-frame revolvers to make sure.

Overall?

Doesn't look cocked to me. The hammer sits very low on that pistol and isn't right up against the sights creating the illusion that the hammer is pulled back.

Yes, no. as in no it isn't. At least it doesn't look like it. You can see the back of the hammer resting in the frame.

Please post the project as it progresses. I'm considering buying a Nagant and would like to see what is possible. Thanks in advance.

Bullpup's are fun, a .22 sniper weapon is more useful.....But I am biased....

I've never felt comfortable with the whole concept of bullpup rifles. While I realize in this case we're dealing with a .22 and, thus, not massive amounts of pressure and destructive force, to me the idea of having the action of the gun right next to the ol' coconut when that cartridge ignites just gives me the willies. I realize they are compact, make sense, and that the odds of an overpressure round blowing the action apart are remote, but still.......
To me it is right up there with Glocks having the safety in the middle of the trigger, just doesn't seem quite right but then that's just me.

I agree, go with the sniper config.
