problem is my 18 year old mind and my 60 year old body don't agree most days

Yup, same boat...

The fork bracket should never need to come off on the d34's, makes welding first preference (if I had the equipment)

My only decent break barrel probably couldn't consistently hit a basketball at 50 yards but as slow as I am to work on them, I don't plan to quit until they can at least hit dimes at 15 yards.

I am working on some thing like that too for my area , first i have to spread the air rifle addiction ;)
I'm thinking there are alot of youth in the area too that could use some guidance and supervision.

I agree with you James as if we could get our youth interested in the sport/hobby I believe they would not have time to be in trouble and mischief being reported every day on the news.

It is indeed an addiction that I had as a youngster and grew out of only to discover the addiction again in my retirement.

Have you at least tried the Loctite after a through cleaning and degreasing of the bolt and fork threads with brake clean. I have several break barrel from cheap crosmans to a FWB 124 and have yet to have a pivot screw loosen after securing with blue Loctite so you have nothing to loose and everything to gain by trying.  That D34 would be a good starting FT gun IMO.

It's the fork, the bracket that stock screws attach to.  Only posts I've read, precious few, say gun is toast.  I've made working on it my last priority.

The Daisy 880 seemed to be doing particularly well plinking earlier today though.  Hitting bottle caps from the side out to 35 yards.

Back to the Superbowl...

Ok I have no real experience with a D34 so cannot say from experience and have not read much on them so it may indeed be "toast" as you put it but for the dollars they want for them of 250 and up I would think it is fixable but understand that its quicker to fix the easy ones first as well.

Just trying to help with solutions and if you would like to get it right I would be willing to look at it if you were inclined to ship it to me and see if I could get it fixed for you so its your call with that since I fix and build my own guns from pretty much scratch at times or from piles of various guns parts.

Yea back to the blooper bowl for now though as well.

Auburn area myself... It's been a long time since the original airgun hunting club message was posted, but I would be very interested. Of course, just shooting with a local group would be great too!
