The very first posted mech for a true lever action. The lever isn't really that hard to pull back, and unfortunatly, you cannot overdo the rubberbands, as you'll end up pulling the equivalent force with the lever, and possibly break it :-(
It can easily take 2 #64 RB's, bit I haven't tried more...
Pretty damn cool
Lever works smoothly
Vid of it shooting too!
