    This would be something I would love to see. Adam sir, could you kindly take pictures of the whole process and post them here? It would be very helpful to learn a thing or two from that.

    Sure, it may take a couple of days to receive the barrel.

    Thanks Dr. Hanif Malik,

    The biggest problem is to get a good quality .22 barrel, otherwise it is an easy process.
    Let's see how it works.

    Want to show you two most important characteristics of a barrel.

    Here is the crown, I will have to re-crown it.

    And the rifling of bore, very rough, can't do anything for it.

    I know, they can do better, but perhaps they are not yet ready to understand the importance of these things.

    Tomorrow, some work by mechanic on the barrel, then re-crowning, and we can continue with changing it.

    Remove two tiny grub screws holding the end cap, eight grub screws holding the barrel and one from power wheel. All are same size, total 11 screws.

    Barrel with bushings, power wheel, spring and hammer can be gently taken out. Trigger sear may try to hold the hammer back, press the trigger.

    Hammer, spring and power wheel can be easily separated from barrel.

    Each bushing is attached by 3 same sized grub screws, opening them will remove the bushings from barrel.

    New barrel needs some sanding to bring its diameter exactly to the diameter of original barrel (there is about 0.5 mm difference only). Two grooves for both bushings, decrease dia on the breech end to accommodate the breech, and a new crown. Same hammer, and bushings can be used to install it in the action of gun.

    Tried re-crowning of barrel with self centering grinder and brass screws. due to bad and uneven rifling, crown can't get better than this. We can see it later when rest of the work is finished.

    I have not made bushing grooves on new barrel to save time and effort of ustad, To attach the bushings, I had to use little smaller screws.

    New barrel with original one

    and then ready to be installed with bushings attached, power wheel, spring and hammer on the new barrel.

    Reinstallation process is just reverse of dis-assembly. Reassembly went perfect and here is the airgun with .22 barrel, only trigger knob not attached yet, cause I have to open it again for some sanding of breech hole and paint job on barrel.

    I have checked it by firing .22 pellets, fires with lot of authority. accuracy will be checked may be tomorrow.

    O Zabardast sir.
    Each picture with its description was an excellent tutorial. Instead of painting the barrel you can get it chromed as well. Right?
    Looking forward to the range review. BTW, how much did the barrel cost you, sir?

    Barrel alone cost me 1k, total cost of this project was about 2.5k.

    What will be the process of chroming, is it superior to painting in finish and durability? please comment.

    I have checked the flight of pellet by firing against cloudy sky, looking through scope. There was not any significant wobble of pellet. It may be accurate, will check it soon.
