Also,that's the more elegant solution. You could always take any solid object that'd fit the space between your barrel and chamber and just secure that with a hose clamp or zip tie; just make it good and snug.

Keep in mind that you'll need a 2 5/8 hole saw for 2.5" schedule 40 pipe.

You got a few options. You could cut out a bracket and then zip tie the barrel and chamber together, for example. Or a large hose clamp. Or something. :)

That's a dangerous route you're traveling; tread lightly :)

If you're good at it, feign some interest into some things she likes. It does help some.

You'd almost think it was materialized out of thin air just for you. But then, it shouldn't take so long to arrive then. :)

What Zeus said. My friend, who has a Benjamin Marauder, absolutely loves his and has been trying to talk me into getting one. Unfortunately, considering it's comparable in price to a real rifle, I'm having difficulty wanting one. But, it looks quite elegant.

Such a feeling of glee. Almost euphoric. Can definitely feed poor spending habits. :)

Zeus, you speak truth. I went the opposite route; though my woman's okay with separate finances for our own personal use, and we use her account for joint purchases and such. But we do have a kid which although I wasn't thrilled about having, I wouldn't ever look back. Sounds like you got a good gir...

Most reviews I've seen treat Shars as lower end, less expensive/mostly made in China gear. But generally it works. Not speaking from first hand experience, just YouTube and various forum reviews.

It's the diameter of a typical utility pole, yeah. :) (Depends on what class, but that's a bit technical. Sorry, used to be a lineman)
