This is about threading airgun barrels just came up as it's part of the topic since he threaded a barrel for a Lee.enfield. and was offering some knowledge and help.

And I.dont know I.think the transfer port is.in the chamber of my 110. Aparently from hw100 tunning they said my barrel is locktighted to the frame so it's going to be tricky to remove I haven't tryes to remove it yet.


Heat makes Loctite let go ...

Mind if I ask "why" you want to replace the barrel in the first place?

Not stating any fact here but I know of a few guys who don't like the lw barrels due to accuracy not being what it should be.
Granted not too many manufacturers build airgun barrels. Willing to bet hw makes a super accurate barrel. Change the length and you'll have to tune the rifle to it.

I know there were a few places a guy could order LW barrels from, but most of the sources I knew about have dried up or are out of what limited stock they had.

Have you found a source for the barrel?

Best way I know of to release locktight, if the permanent type, is with a bit of heat.
Not sure how this translates into the O rings, though.
Some "locktights" are not the permanent type, just taking a little more force to get started.

Tried removing the screw at the transfer port? I found a reference to the barrel being threaded, but the fellow only figured it was threaded and never bothered to remove it. Looking at airgun spares, the barrels in the breakdown do not appear to be threaded. Would almost bet it's retained by that screw.

But I dunno fer sure. :rolleyes:

Hmm...looks as though it does have a bit of thread on there. Spindly little thing...

Ya nice find ya that's exactly what the set screw is for but I'm 99.9 % sure it's a threaded barrel. I was told by the pros at hw tunning that its locktighted. And he said to force twist it with a vice etc. Hopefully I dont risk stripping the threads.

Ya I dont mind I got everything I need to tune the reg etc. And yes the stock barrel is extreamly accurate 2 inch to 3 inch targets are a breeze at 85 to 100 yards and can pluck golf balls at that distance and I'm talking with crossman premier hollow points. Field target trophys are so accurate you wouldnt believe. Can hit 1 inch to half inch targets at 85 to 100 yards. Pretty good for a stock barrel but it lacks the length I want and is kind of loud.

What's the max weight you shoot from it?
That's pretty good shooting I'd say.
Best I ever got from an airgun is under 1" at 50 yards. With a crosman barrel.

I imagine you could control the sound a little bit with a longer barrel.

I have it maxed out with the 410 mm barrel at about 20 ft lb with a 19 gr and 19 ft lb with a 14.3 gr things a laser for a short barrel snaps targets at 100 yards golf balls pellet tins soda cans and that's just with crosman pellets. Also found it to be extreamly.NON pellet fussy loves anything pointed domed hollow heavyset diesnt have a problem. I'm definatly going to make sure my longer barrels twist rate and choke points are identical to my stock one.

As for threading goes, I'm an asssss backwards yank. I was taught how to thread back wards. It takes all the hurry out of it. AND works a charm. It eliminates almost all chance of mistake. It's on the net .
