Daisy 2003 Full Auto conversion

Click here for pics and info on my Daisy 2003 Hybrid

Here's the premise, a couple years ago I went to my local K-Mart and purchased a Daisy Model 2003 Semi-auto Pellet repeater, at the time I bought it for around $40, I got the pistol for taking out unwarry birds and squirrels in my back yard(and must say it worked wonders), this pistol has a 35 shot helical feed magazine and has a TRUE Blow back action(meaning the bolt cocks itself with the excess gas after each shot). Later I figured since the gun functions like a true semi-auto then it could easily be converted to full-auto, well after a bit of tinkering around I found out I WAS RIGHT, I was able to come up with a simple modification to convert the gun to fire full-auto............Skip a few years ahead.....Upon posting this story on Survivors SKS discussion forum(long story), it seems that an interest in these air pistols and a way to convert them to full auto has resurged, a couple days after the posting on the SKS board I dug out my pistol, ripped it apart, figured out how I converted it and drew up some plans from there, upon doing so I emailed these plans to a few individuals who were interested, well now it seems that maybye there's an even greater interest in this conversion, so this page is a reply to that demand.....Below you will find various texts and drawings that will aid you in converting this pistol to full-auto.

Conversion Process

Note: In most states Airguns are not controlled by any laws which govern firearms therefore this conversion is completely LEGAL in MOST states, I have been informed that Airguns DO fall under firearms regulations in MA and IL, therefore attempting this conversion in those states may constitute a FELONY, please check your state and local laws regarding the legality of airguns before attempting this modification, failing to do so may get you a nice long stay in Club-FED! Also following through with this modification WILL void any Warranty you previously had on the pistol, you also take a chance of damaging it, which I cannot be held responsible for.

Before you get started the first thing you'll need of course is a Daisy Model 2003, the first place you'll want to check is your local K-mart, Wallmart, and Meijers stores, if they do not carry them try your local gunshop or sporting goods store, if you are having trouble finding one, here's a few links to companies selling 2003s over the net.
