After a couple misses the other day, I decided to put it on paper. The sights are jury rigged, but functioned well in the past. The results were zero hits...nothing is leaving the barrel. I can't wait to see how many pellets are in the barrel. I am hoping I can gently push them back out the way they came in. Have any of you guys had this happen ?

Yikes! You may have wedged them in pretty tight.

Perhaps try a wooden or brass dowel to push them out after soaking the tube with PB Blaster or other penetrating oil.

I am going to try to clear the barrel, and then probably toss it in the dumpster before having a cardiac arrest if it doesn't happen by the second try.

Penetrating oil is good, but I'd do my pushing with brass or aluminum, or even polished steel [drill rod]. And be reallly reluctant to pound on it - lead upsets and expands tighter. It is very soft, though, so a long drill can be rotated slowly, maybe by hand, and clean them out.

Rifling matters.(grin)

I'd measure from both sides of the obstruction,to get a feel for bridge length and cut to the fucking chase in halfa' beer.................

I am not sure where I will find a .175 dowel as long as this barrel. I might take it down to California and see if I can get a treehugger to just suck the pellets out of the muzzle.

Seen 'em here in town,so figured everyone else was in good shape.

I reckon you could donate a 1pc .177" S/S cleaning rod to The Cause.

I'd trim a jag near flush,to protect threads.................

Since the pellet gun was broke down, I dug around and found the 39A. After shooting the 39A for a little bit, I have lost all interest if trying to fix the pellet gun.

Let me know how it works. I still have an old Faulk's C-50 wooden crow call. Obviously electronic is the way to go, but this old thing is very effective.

I prolly have a few rat holed somewhere.

Grandpa had one of these and it worked. Even then,the ONLY thing you need is "Death Cry Of A Crow".(grin)




I've got my JS cassette version somewhere and the new FP assuredly don't suck..........................
