Re: Nahverteidigungswaffe/Close Defense weapon

hello Phil,

I would say your correct that when the breech was opened the plug was removed from the inside then either a grenade or the smoke pistol could be used up the tube, its crying out for you to design something that shoots out of the chamber???.
cheers, Chris.

Re: motor issues

hello Alfred,
sounds like you have a broken roll pin on the drive gear, you will have to remove the motor and you will see the roll pin that holds the drive gear on to the motor shaft, just tap the broken one out and hammer in a new one.
hope this helps,
Chris,
