Yes!!

Donít scrap until you tear it down and/or try to fix it.  Might learn sumthin in the process.

I think the 77x is a dressed up Daisy 880. Not too hard to work on. Valve might just need to be cleaned out, but seal kits are super cheap from Daisy if you need one.  If you bought it recently, mayb the vendor would replace the gun.
Good luck!

The 880 has quite a following on the GTA. The Winchester does cost about $25 more than the 880, but the stock looks very nice.

The gun is a refurb. Purchased on a whim...I dont think I have more than $20 in the gun...seems the valve is not taking air and pressure remains in the tube...going to go into ...as someone mentioned might learn something...thanks for the replies

I would like to ask how the stock feels, and does it shoulder well?

I like thumbhole stocks...LOP on this one is good...(adult size). ....my only complaint is I cant get my cheek low enough for eye to line up the open sights....so I use a red dot to raise line of sight and cheek weld is perfect....fun gun , but I dont know if I would pay full price for one.....I have a Bear River 900 that is similar in design that I like better...good luck
