Here is an original Termite Pump nelspot handle that dates back to 1988. This came from Jim “Howdy” McGuffog, of the Master Blasters and Bo Peep. Howdy sent me two of these pump handles that came off Termites that were sent to the Master Blasters. He explained that “The pumps you have where made by Termite or whoever he had [make them].”

The pictured pump handle came off Howdy’s Termite, which he replaced with a pump handle he machined that used a linear bearing.

Besides playing with the Master Blasters, Howdy was a tech for Airgun Designs as well as a partner in Action Sports Outfitters (ASO) and he designed and machined the Howdy Bolt, which came in Bore Drop and Breech Drop for Nelson based pumps.

I received this pump from Howdy yesterday and it will be going on a Termite gun that came to me missing the pump.
