My co2 cartridge seems to stick in the tube. Sometimes I fire off a shot with the cap off which works if there is any air left. Ive tried cleaning it which helped temporarily, I've also drilled a hole, threaded a screw at the bace of the cartridge and used vice grips to pull it out. This makes me unhappy as I have spent much time and care in this pistol. Any insight or suggestions out there?

check the top of you vavle with a flashlight if you don't want to take it appart to see if its crimped or bent, but the best way is to take it apart the look at the fitment with a new co2 and the top of your vavle

I took a peak with a flashlight. There doesn't seem to be damaged or bent. Has this happened to you? Could it be the part that pierces the cartridge that's holding it?

what co2 cartridge are you using?
did you try a deferent make of cartridge?

I take it you looked in the tube to see if there is a dent or something on the inside wall of the tube ?

if you just slide the cartridge in by hand until it makes contact with the valve will it slide back out with no problem, if so that means its sticking on the face of the valve when tighten by the cap, and you'll have to take it apart and inspect that section.

Never happend to me but like i said you should take it apart it is fairly easy, and remove the valve and try to put your cartridge against the top of the valve to see whats going on

I used both JT and crossman but I think the problem was with the JT's. No dents at all in the tube and the cartridges (both type slip in and drop out no problem pryer to puncturing the cartridge. I don't mind taking it apart. I will probably do it in the morning. (Better light) I was just hoping for a game plan before I operate.

The piercing pin is getting stuck in the cartridge. The solution is to stop shooting before the cartridge is empty.

Ya, it just seems rather indignant for such a pretty pistol. I would have taken it apart earlier but the last time I worked on it the breech screw gave me grief. There's always something to look forward too. Talking about it has helped however....

That is correct. The "other" option is to straighten/sharpen the piercing pin, it may be something on your pin causing part of this- i.e. a burr or odd angle.

One use one of those pistol type clamps to squeeze the barrel and the co2 tube together this will take pressure off the little screw. Then take out the long breech screw then the little breech screw. I found out if you put the little one in first and take it out last you`ll have less problems with it guess doing it this way makes up for little difference in lengths

I had the same problem. Seems the o ring on the valve was compressed so much from over tightening, that it formed a cup that held onto the powerlet. If replacing the O ring is too much trouble, then pelgun oil all around the tip of the powerlet will also work.

It's most likely over tightening of the C02 cap, I have a friend who always over tighten his C02, on both his 2260 and 2240, he thought that is what pierced the C02, until I told him it was the first shot that pierced the C02. Try getting a stuck C02 out of a 2260 tube! Had to take the gun apart. One good thing is he sold me the 2260 (all original) because of his frustration.

Thanks, the o ring does seem to have a curve or cup shape. I'll try putting oil on the side of the cartridge stem for know. I wonder if Canadian tire has a sink washer that is comparable?

This has happened to me several times. All I do is drill out the bottom of the cart with a 1/8" bit. Just as the bit is about to go all the way through the metal, the cart will spin. Pull the drill out slowly while turning and the cart will come with it.
