Hi. I've been having a blast target shooting indoors with my Beeman P17. I find that the body of the P17 is very smooth and slippery and unfortunately as I was cocking it, it jumped out of my hands and landed front sight first on the tile floor. The fiber optic rod is gone and the place for the optic to sit in is crushed. Anybody else run into this? What are my options for repair? Thanks

I replaced one on a Remington Airmaster 77 using a swizzle stick that they put in drinks at fancy bars. I had to file and sand it down to fit, but it worked. You may even have a selection of colours to choose if you get lucky. I think mine was a clear one.

Great idea. Did you just use crazy glue to secure?
Thanks!

You could also just drill and tap, and thread in a long set screw. Or drill and glue in a post.

Or could build up the crushed area with JB weld and file/ paint.

Options are endless.

Ebay carries many of the same colors and sizes. That's what I would use. New optic and glue. The super glue may attack the optic. I'd use E6000. Let it dry overnite , would be tough as new.

Thanks csitas. I'll use that instead of loctite/krazy glue.
Cheers

My friend, do you have access to the E6000 glue. That stuff is fantastic and as close to permanent I've ever used. Stays slightly flexable but, you couldn't tear it apart with your hands. One tube would be a life time supply.Sticks almost to anything .I don't sell the stuff, wish I did though. It's that good for use in our hobby. Dries clear, another +.
