360 Suicide Catch: Back to the Drawing Board

January 11th, 2011
By Langley

I constructed a new SNAP variant today in an attempt to use the Suicide Trigger with a 360 degree catch notch (similar to Carbon’s Mk II design) but it seems that the plastic couldn’t stand up to repeated abuse from the metal catch pin despite my best efforts to smooth it out.  Pictured at right is the catch notch on the plunger rod after about a solid day’s worth of use.  It actually hasn’t failed yet, and works fine in this state, but I doubt it would last much longer in this condition.  I was successful in making a solid, stable handle with a smaller footprint for use with a sleeve-style pump action.  More photos after the break.
