Since my first ideas for 1 manually operated rifle, I have gone and built myself one. Don't be fooled by the AR look. Yes, I built it from an 80% AR-10. It is chambered in .308 but to comply with state law and increase ammo that I can use, I did not add the gas system and used a side-charge bolt. I can use 100gr light charge plinker rounds for small game, or high energy hunting loads for big game and self defense, or anything in between. A simple pull of the side handle loads a new round from a detachable box mag, if the spring fails the side handle fixes that. What do you all think. I call it my Spring Assist Tactical Rifle.

Interesting.

So chamber pressure simply locks it up, and then when you pull the handle the bolt rotates?

Pretty neat.

If it works well than I think it is a great alternative for California and NY.

Scoped SMLE rifles. They come in either .303 British or .308 Winchester. They have very smooth actions and are fast to shoot. They are accurate and reliable. In fact, in WW1, in one battle the Germans got confused and thought that they were attacking a machinegun nest because of the volume of fire put out by British riflemen using their SMLE rifles. Probably the best bolt action rifles ever produced by any nation.

The SMLE's are different, but I wouldnt call them the best. I think the Mauser based guns/actions are stronger and a better choice overall.

I always found the SMLE's action to be "sloppy", and the "cock on close" bolt takes some getting used to. Sort of like driving a car with the steering wheel on the right.
