Anyone changed a barrel on a Ruger Airhawk from .177 to .22? Looks the same as my D24. May try tomorrow as both guns are apart, looks like just cocking arms need to be changed?

Never seen it done. Cocking arms and linkage definitely different.
But a .22 Airhawk would be interesting. Waiting for your results.

Would a .22 Airhawk be much different that most other .22 break barrels?

If he pulled it off, it would be unique. You can't get more different than that. :drinkers:

Should have just bought a Xisco barrel from Flying Dragon when I spoke with Mike M. Said they came from the same Chinese plant.

Barrel and breech a direct swap. Airhawke went from 875(.17) to 700fps(.22). I don't shot much longer than 15-20yds anyways, if I need to, I'll grab D350. Using Chairgun Pro gained 1.5ft/lbs. Diana 24 went from 470(.22) to 560(.17).

Didn't take any pics. Chinese made a good copy, everything just dropped in. Hardly any cursing or hammering. Barrel about 2" shorter. Hard to tell accuracy, tears much bigger hole, but all hit in the same hole after adjusting scope. What I expected by slowing a springer down.

Very disappointing. Come out to shoot, gun missing by at least an inch. Have to buy a more gooder scope. Banged it, tapped it, thought it was settled. Guess it's time to buy a better scope, or go back to open sights. Still shoots in the same hole, just not where I'm aiming.
