Cycling the Scorpion Autoloader, video (c.1994)

Paul Schreck cycles the the Kenimex Scorpion Autoloader in this quick video.
The regulator (adjusted on the left side) on the Scoprion Paul cycles in the video was screwed too far in, resulting in an extremely high pressure and a super strong trigger pull to depress the vertical (automag style) on/off and resulting in the on/off not returning properly after being fired. 
It does work though!

UK Scorpion Autoloader
An Autoloader Semi converted from a Green unibody Scorpion

The Kenimex Scorpion Autoloader is a UK produced drop in conversion kit for Scorpion pumps. This kit will also fit Trracers, mavericks, tagmasters, hornets, razorback, blackwidows, blackhawks and other Razorback spec nelson pumps.

The impressive stainless steel valve is a drop in upgrade which replaces the internals (bolt, hammer, trigger/sear, valve body, powertube) and pump handle with a blowforward back bottle semi automatic valve. Although back heavy the complete package is pretty small in size.

Green Autoloader

The green Autoloader pictured above was aquired recently from Steve Whyteleaf of the UK Predators.  I bought it thinking it was incomplete but after arriving it does appear to have all the parts including the one piece steel trigger sear.  
Unlike the silver Scorpion pictured in the video, the green body is a unibody barrel. Otherwise very similar.

I’ll have some history on the Autoloader soon, as well as some article scans from Kenimex owner, Peter.
