I have a .22 barrel on it's way to try on my AirHawk. I have a question about disconnecting the cocking lever on the .177 barrel. I know I have to drive out the pin, hopefully just driving it back in, will keep it in place. I assume it's just a press fit. Any tips on not marking it up?

Edit: It's a just a piece of round stock, flush fit, no flare or dimple in the end of it

afraid not...........there is a locking clip right in the middle that holds the pin in place, you can see it when turn the rifle around and look into the folded metal of the cocking arm, right where the pin goes thru.

i use tweezers...very carefully :shock:

I had a quick look and I do see what looks like a washer. I assume it's a C clip, open on one side that snaps into a groove cut around the middle of the pin? Once I have the new barrel, I'll remove the stock, undo the barrel pivot, disconnect the cocking linkage from the receiver, then once the old barrel is free, I can flip the linkage forwards enough to get a better look at it.

Man, am I glad I posted that question. I wasn't going to at first because I thought it was a lame question. I can just picture myself, wailing away with a hammer and a punch....ooh shivers!

I'd have done the same thing, so lucky for me that you asked. That piece of information might come in handy one day.
