Welrod Build Part 2

Cold War, Custom builds, Suppressed, Weapons, Welrod, WWII

Further progress was made on the Welrod yesterday! This project is coming together quite quickly as it is already starting to look like the original gun.

Below you can see the internal cylinder pulled out as if the gun was being cocked. This also aligns the feed system for loading. The gun cocks on opening when the piston locks into the sear.

Next job is to make the piston (it will be a custom-made piston in aluminium, turned on the lathe) and the second sear. I’ll also have to buy in the barrel and the spring!
