View Full Version : Need Help With Airgun
01-25-2005, 07:32 PM
Hi, this is Matt's son, Dwight (yes, Matt know's I'm on here). One of my favorite past times is Airsoft, which involve my friends and I getting together and shooting each other with plastic, 6mm bbs. Well, I had just taken my ex- squirrel-shooting Daisy out to take a shot at a cat, to prevent it from spraying it's hellish-smelling excrement on our door (it's happened before, we had to repaint it). Right as the cat was about to jump the fence, I pumped it once (thats all there was time for), and shot the cat in the ass. After I got over what an awesome shot that was, I was then amazed at the accuracy and distance that I got from one pump. Then I thought "Sweet, cheap Airsoft Sniper Rifle http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-shootin-green.gif "
Bottom Line: After dismantlin my Daisy, I ran into a problem. How was I to get the barrel out? It won't screw out, and I can't tell if it's forced in or welded (no sauder marks visible). So, if any of you know how to take the barrel out, I would greatly appreciate hearing suggestions. Thank you!

My guess is it's knerlled, then press fit.
But I could be wrong??? http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-rolleyes-green.gif

It is not a solid barrel- you can tell that just in the weight. The barrel is surrounding the "core" by an expance of a shell only fittet at the muzzel and the breach action that is actually inlayed some 3-4"s.
I know I used to be able to fit a .270 into the top 1/2" of my muzzel before it hit the rifled barrel in my Crossman 766. If memory serves me right- there was an outter shell (exposed barrel), a pressed "fitting", and the 3ard/inner was the actual .177 barrel.

u cant, ive dissassembled mine because like all daisy guns the front sight/muzzle is a plastic brake that holds the barrel in place. so what you do is wrap tape around the steel barrel and put the gun back together. people often complain about this inaccuracy. its barrel wobble thats the problem. that and its a picky gun, depending on how you hold it greatly affects accuracy most of the time.
and yes it is pressed on, i play airsoft myself and i strongly wouldnt recomend turning any air rifle that shoots past 400 fps into an airsoft rifle. its dangerous and chances are ull just mess up the gun. if you want a cheap airsoft sniper, get the cybergun ak 47 and mount a scope on it.
i have quite alot of knowedge on daisy guns and airsoft brands and such. and i would not recomend shooting anyone with a powerline airgun modified to shoot airsoft rounds. besides, if you did, it wouldnt be a breech loader because you would have to drill that out and nothing would keep the airsoft bb inside the barrel, and if you bored out the chamber at the breech the metal would become so thin and frail it might burst in your hands on the maximum pump setting http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-ugly-lol-bashing-sign.gif
