Got the two-stage SSP gun together enough to try the pump system out!

Assembled the tubeworks, gave it a charge, pulled the retaining pin, KA-POW!! Didn't take much to pull the pin either. Factor in a 3.5:1 trigger advantage, should be nice on the finger and hold. Didn't take a can of spinach to pump either!

Sadly, don't have a bolt of all things. Pretty sure I do, but where?? May turn one out tomorrow so base figures can be had off the chrony.

Each stage is buttery smooth with noticeable second stage engagement. In fact, the second stage is slightly less load even considering the spring system. The ball bearing detent system can be felt releasing with an audible click.

Due to the spring system, an oversight - but a benefit, the springs being under load assist in opening the lever. Open the lever, it rebounds unloading the springs, right at the point of the first to second stage transition point; lever to 35 degrees. So, the operator only has to induce minimal effort and distance to fully open the lever.

Excited 😀, but disappointed in the bolt situation 😐. Too late to tinker...
