Mike I like the Rem Bulldog ... couldn't see the cylinder pin clip config. Is it the standard one? Nice Job...
Here's mine a whole lot less work I bet.

Oldwheat..I can`t tell from the pic..maybe a close up would help ...Are you going to tell us ..this might be just what I`m looking for ..I figured there was a way to use the parts at hand ..I just couldn`t think of it ...Is it possible to square off the front of the sail close to the gun frame and leave the round rod part of the loading lever ? This is what I have in my mind as to what I want to end up with ..and a 2 inch barrel .

Thanks for the pic I just wanted to see the Bulldog clip ...know how they work. Am a Rocket Surgeon.




The coil of the spring and the hole of the latch are held in by the loading lever screw. The latch is spring loaded upward and holds the T-handle/cyl. pin in place.

I'll attempt to post more pix in the next little while ( read= few days) to further illustrate,perhaps even a diagram.. It's a little more work than attaching a bulldog clip but not that difficult a procedure.. I'm positive that many of you could improve it even further..

I never seem to have the pics & diagram in my thumb drive when I am online but I will try to get my act together shortly. Essentially, my arrangement uses a coil spring loaded plunger which you pull forward & rotate to release the base pin...

Sundance, get a wooden spring loaded clothespin and take it apart. Then look at the above pic I put here....copy and print it. I had made a clip with the spring alone that worked. Needs refining but had the dang thing workiin'. Need the flat metal latch, gonna make one.

OK: Basically = Part 'G' is steel tubing turned down in diameter to fit closely into the plunger hole then part 'C' is pinned or screwed into the forward part of the part 'G'.....

Part 'B' is threaded on one end & parts 'A' & 'F' (modified loading lever sail) are both drilled & threaded with matching threads .. The aft end of part 'B' (about 1/4 ") extends into the space just under the base pin.. File or sand it down to fit snugly enough to prevent wobble... Part 'D' is a bolt with the head turned down to make a good fit in part 'G'. It runs through part 'E' & screws into the lower threaded hole in part 'A'..

To use, pull out the 'sail' & twist down.... Then pull out the base pin..

P.S. If you put in a larger diameter loading-lever retainer screw, the base pin doesn't come out of the frame but has enough clearance for cylinder removal..
