Beautiful job on the animation, for sure.... Wish I had that talent....
Well look at that , a Quebecois and Ontarien actually getting along .
Iím up in Northern Labrador for work right now . -40c and blowing snow 30 to 40cm . Canít wait to get home to the -30c . The mine site has been on shut down for the last 18 hours , pretty nasty out . I havenít seen a winter storm like this since the early 80ís .
The Evanix is similar with blowback ,but not quite . It doesnít blow back directly on the hammer . Thereís another mechanism involved .

I had an FX Monsoon which used air pushing on a piston in the shroud to recock the mechanism but wasn't aware that there are rifles on the market that use direct blowback to cycle the action.

Tho half the fun and learning comes from our mistakes & there is nothing wrong with that !

I wouldn't call it a "talent", just copy-pasting on MS Paint to make each individual frame then combining them on this nifty website.Here's a quickie with the subject of this thread made with just 3 unique frames:edit: or if one was feeling a little silly, voila
This looks very similar to a Cothran works minus the rod. i'd love to see a Cothran animation.
Thanks, just one more thing, how deep can the rod go in the stem?edit: Here's a more complete diagram, roughly to scale and just missing the return spring:
