I'm wanting to get a marker so it can be modded into a bolt action sniper rifle that can be loaded with Tiberius FS rounds. The problem is that i have no clue on how to do so or what should i start with. Please give any useful info or opinions as well as links. Im trying to have this be as inexpensive as possible, so nothing pricey or outrageous. thank you all.

You could try and do some work on a Traccer, they are $50. I've seen some lever-action Traccers, and I'm sure a bolt-action would be similar in design. You could make it really flashy and give it a wooden shell, have the cocking rod sticking out of the shell, and attach the rod to the pump handle. Then, whenever you pull the cocking rod, the pump will work as it should, and it will be like a bolt-action rifle.

As for the FS rounds, I'm not really sure on what to do there.

it's much MUCH harder to make a Nelson like a tracer bolt action then it is a Sheridan pump marker. Sheridans are stacked tube, you can attach a bolt action handle to the bolt and it will work with little work. Can't do the same to a nelson, as the bolt and hammer and harder to reach.

Are Traccers pretty common? I would like to use a marker that is relatively easy to find, especially for finding parts for it. Also, where would i get a shell to make it look and feel like a rifle without costing a lot? Modding it for FS roundsis probably the easy part, the main thing is to remove the feedneck and dremble the opening a little bit bigger.

I bet you could pull it off fairly easily with a cocker. See if you can find a side feeding cocker and adapt it to a Tiberius longbow kit. That would be my advice.

I guess it depends where you look. Actually, MCB will probably have some bolt-action rifles. But they will also cost more money. But Traccersare the same thing as a Maverick, little pumps, light as hell, and they're pretty cheap.

MCB will most likely have more than enough of a selection.

I did this with a Brass eagle tiger shark. Upgraded the spring with a phantom spring kit, cut off the feedneck, made a custom shroud. Voila! Bolt-action, single shot. Very challenging to use in a game!Attached File  IMG_0468.JPG (252.33K)

MCB would have both bolt action and a few lever actions floating around. As well as the occasional bolt action K2, production bolt action wood stocked marker from the 80's.

finding a inexpensive pump that isn't as old as myself is hard, not too mention finding parts for them. is it possible to mod a tippmann marker into a bolt action. I have seen some look like bolt actions but i dont know if its just cosmetic or fully functioning. If so i can just get another tippmann and mod the feed neck, buy a rifle stock on ebay for cheap, then just get a barrel adapter so i can use my A5 barrels and be done.

i know this is an older thread, but cockers work well for this. i have an autococker that i modded to work as a bolt action rifle for use with normal paint and first strike rounds.

the easiest way to do it is to notch the back block out so that you can rotate the bolt pin, rotate the bolt 90* and push it in so that it touches the inside of the back block and then tighten the detent on the back of the bolt to hold the pin in place when you rotate it. the hardest part was making the guide plate to go over the the back block to give the bolt its travel path. basically, its a piece of sheet metal bent to cover the back of the marker with an "L" shape cut into it for the bolt pin to slide through. it works just like a normal pump gun just with out the forward mounted pump handle.

to make mine first strike compatible, i had to cut out the feed neck and then i made a body kit out of pvc pipe and a removable feed nck out of a copper pipe elbow. the feed neck fits standard ten round tubes and is held in position with a bead of hot glue around the hole. to use first strike rounds, just pull the feed out and hand load the fs rounds. its a little cumbersome when loading the fs rounds, but i am working on finding a better way to load them still.

i still need to get new pics of the updates that i have made to the marker, these shots are with out the shrouds and actually from the night when i built it.
