    Nice set up!
    How about expounding a bit on all of the add-ons? Who made the bullet feeder, case feeder, ejecter & indexer?

    The case indexer (Moon Unit) and bullet feeder ( M. A systems)were purchased, all the rest were home made.

    Good Shooting

    You sir, are very talented!

    The new Oklahoma Constitutional Carry Law was a hard fought victory. The local liberal news seems to be astounded that we haven't had mass shooting catastrophes since it passed.

    That is an outstanding build. We are all envious.

    Very well done!!!

    I had one of the very early Stars (first machine owned by Paul Jones) and it still ran perfectly when I sold it to a member here.

    The bullet feeder is made by "MA Systems" They are still in Business but no longer manufacturing the feeder. The collator for the bullet feeder is home made by Me.

    Next step would be to make a pneumatic actuator to operate the handle.
    Very nice
