The forum wouldn't let me upload a mp4 video from my phone so I uploaded it to youtube.

I took a break from the Gat project since July and returned to it about a week or so ago.    The cocking mechanism is completed and installed.   I assembled one bolt (all bolt  parts are made) and tested it.   It cocked and fired a blank.    I am now assembling the remaining bolts and shaping the firing pins,  two more to do.    I tested all the assembled bolts and they function as intended.

 

Today I fired a 3 round burst (blanks),  its so quick it sounded almost like a single shot.    I can't fire normally yet, I have not made a top cover or mag at this point, but soon !   I am going to give a whirl at 3d printing a top cover and mag for test purposes, that should be interesting.    I got the 3d printer last year, assembled it and tested it quick but have not done anything with it yet.   

 

I have a few things to tidy up,  gotta make the bolt insertion knob and knob for the cocking switch.   Right now I just have a setscrew shaft collar on the cocking switch, no spring but it works just fine that way.

 

More to come...........              ( PS   I got a whole coffee can of blanks at a local flea market for $5.00 this summer,  perfect for tests)
