I had to forge the swing arm. It was a bit of a lesson in physics.... This was my first try.

Got these vintage crosman target from Mr Marvin a while back.... Scrap steel brackets and a $5 fire bell from the flea market. If you look close you can see the tiny spring loaded hammers. Springs came from old click pens. Sounds pretty nice.

Just looked at this during lunchtime boredom. Glad I did as it has given me the idea to turn my Remington FT paddle reset target into a ding-ding variant as I find the reset on it is very hard to make work unless the paddle gets hit "just right".

Nice! There was a member a few posts ago that rigged a flag that popped up too. I might try something like that with my next one. Kinda funny but this type of stuff reminds me of going to the carnival with my brother as a kid.... He would blow every penny he had. Lol. Good times.

Well this is what I ended up with. It goes ding, but I don't yet know until I try it if it goes ding loud enough to be heard from the other end of the rifle field.

The little gear in the middle - what is it's purpose? The big gear contacts both outward gears.

it's a lock to keep all shafts from turning :mrgreen:

I think he just threw them down and meshed the gears for a picture.
