hi this is my idea

say you get an old break barrel Air Rifle ( where you cock it ) that doesnt work/ dont want anymore and some how thread the end of the barrel so you could screw it into your valve on a ordinary pneumatic spud gun. would this increase the performance of the gun or not.

What do you think?

Well it's a pretty good idea, I just think that, depending on the gun, it might be hard to thread the barrel. But so long as you can make that part work it should work like a charm.

ok well i think i will be able to get the barrel rifled if i do end up doing this the gun would be an old BSA Meteor.

about the barrel threading... i never have actually threaded a barrel but i have added a threaded fitting to one (same effect just simpler). in general the barrels i have dealt with are an odd outside diameter and i have a very limited set of taps so what i do is buy a brass 1/4" to 1/8" bushing and bore out the inner threads so i can slide the barrel through it. then i would super glue the barrel in place.

heres a picture of what im talking about, the barrel could not have been threaded in this case because it was made of 1mmm thick aluminum

Thats a Nice idea although i would have to use a bigger adapter since air rifle barrels are like mabye around 1/2" or 3/4"ish OD.

Just reminding anybody who reads this i probably wont be able to do this so i would like somone else to try it for me.
