I've just completed my latest project based on the Hammerli 850.

I call it my D9 rifle inspired by the District 9 prop weapons.
Quasi-bullpup with the standard electronic trigger.
36" long and 11 lbs with scope. Balanced at the front of the trigger guard.

Thanks to Rich for the 850 and the 850 Resource for the HPA conversion info.
With a 1600 psi reg, it's maxed out at 950fps w/ 7.9gn pellets.
It may become my FT rifle. I can't wait to shoot it.

EDIT: I bumped the pressure up to 1800psi and drilled out the adapter.
Now I'm at 1000fps w/ 8.4gn.











It's just plain cool.

Very Nice work Steve.
Thanks for sharing the pics.
I'd like to hear more about the trigger.

That should draw attention 'every time' you pull it out.

I also am interested in how you dealt with the trigger.

of it's electronics. Located the board and battery in the cheek piece. The solenoid is under the trigger frame pushing against the sear(hidden by the hexagon piece. The stock trigger blade has been removed. The trigger frame is a non-e-frame that has been milled to fit the relocated micro-switch. Extend all the wires and we're set. The sear engagement had to be adjusted to get the solenoid to work with the heavier hammer spring.

I'll be shooting this during the match.

It shoots a .22 cal sized hole at 16yds with 5 JSB heavies.
I'll see what it does in LD's tunnel.
I also made another single shot adapter for you.

I must compliment Steve on his 850 "single shot" tray...great design and it fits from same side as the magazine and held in position by the 850 mag slide...all you do is load a pellet from the right side and close the bolt...very simple..thanks Steve... again...!!

Side note: I'm going ahead with plan to fit a telescoping knee riser on my 850 HPA .177...a friend has some parts to get me going..I will post pics in a few weeks..this will certainly steady up rifle in future FT matches..

My "temporary" knee riser rig rig worked,but was to unstable for uphill FT shots..(Pics below)..and velcro strap allowed to much movement side to side..

Hey Steve, it was nice to meet you and get to see your gun up and personal, its a nice looking rig up close too, i really liked your single shot tray set up, so what ended up being the problem was it the scope? or the gun?

what did you go with your stock? i broke mine and looking for a new one
