Advantages



Run dry mid-stage? No worries!


Gone are the days of running empty, and scrambling to put a single round into the breach before you can load more rounds into the gun. The auto-loading lifter allows you to always load into the magazine tube, no matter what state the gun is in.

Even if you run dry and the bolt locks back, simply load into the magazine tube and the Auto-Loading Lifter will automatically load the first round and close the bolt.


Convenient to use


Our lifter negates the requirement to put a round in the breach and closing the bolt before loading the magazine tube.

Simply load immediately into the magazine tube and our lifter will do the rest - automatically loading the first round, so all you have to do is simply shoulder the gun and fire!

    R&D

    Research & Development

    From the beginning, J Kenny & Co. had the goal of producing a lifter which required NO modifications to the gun. This was a hard task to achieve and increased the difficulty by a great amount. Nevertheless, Josh managed to come up with a design which used a unique combination of springs to produce a 'drop-in' part which required no modification to the gun. This design was further researched and developed to achieve a quality part with custom made high-carbon-steel torsion springs.
