I just had to share this little fixer upper with you guys, just to show you what I occasionally get my hands on for repair...when I got this 2240 i thought no problem these are easy guns to work on should be a simple fix....boy was I wrong, just when you think you've seen it all then one of these comes along and changes your whole prospective....I just cant believe what some people will do to there pellet guns....I know its just a cheap $60 2240 but still that's no reason to do what this person has done to it.... :evil:
Now the person I'm doing the repair for did not do this butcher job to the 2240 he inherited this basket case... :(
lets start with what I found...first its missing the safety spring and bearing no big deal lots of people that try to work on theses lose them...next they tried to put in a super light trigger spring that holds the sear up, well this spring was so light it would not let the sear engage, again no big deal right...well it gets better, upon further dismantling it I found JB weld oozing out the tubes exhaust port hole...then upon removing the hammer I see this big amount of JB weld behind the valve....so it looks like someone tried to fix a simple CO2 end seal leak with a bunch of JB weld...because it had no end seal :roll: :roll: :axe:
So I had to use force to get the valve out a lot of force it was all jammed up with the JB weld....upon removing the valve I noticed very deep pliers and vice marks on it another not so good sign...so I tried to crack the valve open to make sure the valve stem seal was ok...and had a hell of a time cracking it open only to find they used red loctite on it.... seriously!! .... :roll: :rolleyes:

also the whole inside of the air tube is coated with dried up JB weld....I sure hope this 2240 did not come from a forum member that would be very disappointing....so for the love of God people please don't try and do what this person has done.... :(
So was this 2240 worth the hassle probably not, but being the mr fixer in me I just had to do it..... :lol:

You did quite a job of sanding out the vice grip marks, I can't believe you don't have a lathe.

really...guess I've been lucky, both my 2240's have had no problems with the valves coming apart and the others I've worked on as well...up till this one.... :?

nope no lathe :( ...its not like I don't need or want one, I just have no place to put it...garage is full, even if it were a mini lathe no place in the house as well.... :(
I could have spent more time sanding it down further, but I cant waist to much time on this...just have to get it working again... :wink:

That does not look like the JB weld I use in my CF repairs - mine is well mixed- 5 minutes of mixing and it sets properly. That stuff looks like yellow and grey mixture of grease.

yes your correct Daryl...not the same as the stuff I use as well.
but it's some form of JB weld...it smells like JB weld but they probably didn't mix it up well, because while most of it was hard there was a section that was still soft.... :?
I found it strange why it was swirl looking, almost like it was poured in.... :?
the creamy white looking section was very hard but the grey looking section wasn't as hard....

yes!! she is alive and ready to shoot another day :D
she is all back together and leaving in much better shape then when she came in...like I mentioned I was told not to spend to much time on this and rightfully so because they are around $60 new...it came with a krazy glued on cracked front sight and was told to just leave it as is.... so I replaced all the missing internal parts, springs and seals made a transfer port seal and I splashed a bit of paint on it just to make it cosmetically pleasing to the eye....so here are some before and after pics...did a quick chrony test and she is shooting 451fps :wink:
