I hate doing it, especially undoing the end cap and putting it back on again, and trying to get the dovetail perfectly aligned. I am not able to see if the grooves are right so tend to use a thumbnail, run it up and down to try and feel where it is catching and if I have to tap it some more to tighten.
Anyway, I thought it might be an idea to use something like a razor blade to put a scratch across the join (underneath where it is not seen once in the stock) and then look at that with a magnifying glass if needed when reassembling to see when it is aligned.
Only trouble is, I have had mine apart a couple of times before I thought of this so no point trying it now I have lost the "factory setting".
Seems like an idea though(?).

Not sure what airgun you are talking about.

Must be ones with threaded end cap or something?

Specifically, I am referring to a weihrauch but I imagine they are all much the same. You take off the stock then remove the trigger unit and then a lot of force is needed to unscrew the "cap" off the end that gains access to the spring. A spring compressor of some sort is needed to get it back on but once it is in place again, it can be turned by hand until the final tightening where the same force (hammer and bar) is needed to finish doing it up. It is that stage I am referring to as from the look of it, I think in the factory they machine the dovetail after assembly so once that cap is unscrewed then I at least am concerned about getting it back to where it started so that the scope mounts sit in the grooves as they should.

I have no idea what that is, is it a springer?
Anyway, sorry it's not clear, just a thought, never mind...

You can install one ring on the dovetail that will slide but not fall off. You don't need to see it, but you can feel if it's a smooth transition by sliding with a little side pressure. You must be talking about HWs 97 & 80. Most HWs don't have screw-off ends to the cylinder. RC

Should have said that in the first place. Because it's not really a helpful hint when nobody knows that you're talking about. Because 90% of spring airguns have a cap that uses a PIN to secure it.

I knew exactly what he was talking about as I have a Weihrauch with the same style end cap, it’s not a bad idea and for those that know what he means it made perfect sense.

Title should been handy hint taking your Weihrauch XX apart. Everybody with a spring airgun is going to click the link and be like huh? Mines not like that? I have no idea what he's taking about? Not knowing its only about Weihrauch. Need some clarification and context sometimes.
