So yesterday I lent my rifle to a friend to shoot. He cocked it and before putting a pellet "accidentally pulled the trigger" the barrel flew up and snapped into place. Now looking at the barrel, I see it is bent slightly upwards. I tried bending it but its no good. Shoots about 10ft high at 50 yards now. Seriously bad news. Kinda freaking out I want to got to HAHA May 14....

Can I get a Benjamin nitro piston barrel faster? I have friends who purchased that and it bolts right up? Ill have to replace entire barrel and Breach assembly. But where to buy.

Please help me :(

and/or ask if he has a unshrouded B18/19 barrel. Alternatively, buy any B18/19 and scrounge the barrel. probably can buy one off the shelf from CT, TSC, Walmart for the same or lower price as that barrel and not pay shipping.
B18/19 include NVD, Quest, Phantom, Optimus, Vantage, Benji Classic, etc.

Thanks for the info. Should I get the one that is bigger or try and replace same exact one. I would prefer longer barrel if anything :)

Longer barrel would only be better for cocking, in my opinion. The length of the barrel in a springer really doesn't need to be long. I would stick with .177 if I were you.

I have a Fury NP that suffered the same fate. I removed the barrel, placed it in between open stairs (I used a short piece of 1" dowel as a fulcrum so I could put the bend where I wanted it) and bent it down with body weight. It bends surprisingly easy. The barrel now has a "hump" in it that can be seen by the shadows in the bore, but can not be detected in the outward appearance of the rifle. It took a few tries since I didn't want to bend it too much the first try.
btw -darn thing shoots better than it ever did.

Go ahead and try it, nothing to lose...

edit: It wasn't my friend. Mea Culpa. (It was my fault) Sear set way too light for an airgun.
Very intense lesson learned with no personal injury. Gun still shoots well and I have a constant reminder of my stupidity.

Okay thanks for the advice. I wonder why they bend so easy?

Read this 3-part series, then try a straighten, nothing to loose if you are careful.
http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2012/07/ ... ls-part-1/
http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2012/08/ ... ls-part-2/
http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2012/09/ ... ls-part-3/

You'll get a kick out of part 2, where he intentionally fires the springer with the barrel cocked open.

thanks for the info here. Mine certainly isn't that bad, but it's a similar type of bend :(

I took a barrel to the head when I was a kid. The force of the spring throws the barrel up with such force I'm lucky I didn't crack my skull open.
The barrels don't take much to bend, which is a good reason to try to straighten it yourself. Just do a little at a time, doesn't take much.
