Yes, the pin IS removable. In fact, it comes out easily. But, one end is flared just a tad. I have removed mine several times. And the pin is reusable.

I stand corrected then. Thanks for that info.

One more thing, and don't ask how I know, do not forget the sling mount before reinstalling the pin. And get the arm in the right direction.  ;) ;D

The pin as described is tapered with knurling on one end. I was able to use a punch and tap it right on out without fuss. New barrel breech seal o'rings and a minor damaged part is on its way.

I'm glad that worked out so easily for you. My Prowler is a different design. Mine has no sling mount first of all, and mine does have a beveled head, like a flathead screw only without the slot or Phillips head impression, so I still believe mine is meant to be permanent. Especially for the amount of flaring that I had to do on the new one.

Anyway, again, happy that you were able to save some money.

So, are you going to be able to salvage the old barrel, or have you ordered a new one?

The old barrel assembly is junk but the majority of the barrel is usable for a project. I did order a new one though in .22 as that is how it came I could have went 177 but decided not to.

for a significant bent at the breech block...clamp breech block in vise and use a piece pipe cheater bar style to direct the force where you want it applied...dont be surprise if you fihd the barrel to be gently curved over more than half its length from the block towards the muzzle.....dont worry about that yet, just get he bend at the block under control then use a jig like NCED's for the milder stuff...

of course remove the barrel and block from the main tube first and suitable padding and finish protection to suit you are needed...

as NCED alluded to, barrel bending is a tuning tool box skill and you, like i once did, have the perfect crash dummy to learn on....the reason is because scopes perform best when their adjustments close to their mid points aka their centers.....to center a scope, i cut V notches in the sides of a smallish box, lay the scope in the notches, spin the scope while looking through it at a stationary object, adjust the dials to remove the "wobble"....once the scope is mounted i take Ed's advice and tweak the so that the point of impact is less than inch from the point of aim by starting out trying for about an inch high at 10 yards....then abit high at 20 and then just to 25 yards to see if the rifle likes and will continue to group with the pellets...if that works out i might try 30 yards to see if i can shoot the rifle itself and if all goes well it will be toss up if openess of the groups is me or the rifle...


the barrel i learned on is the one in my avatar pic....it had a bit more than 4" of rise after a sear spring failed while loading....i spent 2 hours timidly straightening its OD to perfection and 45 disgusted minutes brutally tweaking it to shoot to the point of aim...




it aint junk unless its kinked
