So, I decided to get this old sheridan pistol going (born the same year as me) but it's got a bulged barrel and the money on parts I would have spent got me a crosman 1377.. built a trap, got a 2240 as well.. ordered a lefty breach (first time shooting I instinctivly reached for the bolt with my left hand) and a 18 inch .22 barrel...

My current plan is the 18 inch .22 barrel on the pumper with a shoulder stock and putting the 10 inch .177 barrel on the 2240.. rifle scope on the pumper and a pistol scope on the 2240.. (at 51 optics are proving to be my friend on the firing line) I like free hand pistol shooting and unlike most threads I read I want to try and get the most shots at 25 to 33 ft out of the CO2..

That's a start.. along with polishing the trigger group and exploring all the fun that can be had in that department..

Am I on a pretty smart track or are their any glaring oops in my plan.. I am pinching pennies this year so trying not to order that 1911 looking trigger and turning them both into PCPs..

What caused the bulged barrel?

May 2 2017, 12:20 PM 

Any idea? I would think even a brass barrel wouldn't bulge from the pressures encountered in that type airgun.

I don't know? It came to me that way.. looks like something tumbled in the barrel, but thar doesn't make logical sense.. my best wild guess is repeated shooting to free a bad pellet (or stone?) or using a rod to try and clear the barrel (with a hammer) I invision individuals younger then teen..

A shame about the Sheridan

But it looks like you're on to 'bigger and better' things. I do hope you'll revisit fixing up the Sheridan sometime down the road, though.

Good luck!

I am only guessing..

May 3 2017, 2:09 PM 

Maybe if I find a replacment upper.. otherwise I will need to de-braise the barrel and braise in a new one.. It makes a good show piece until then

You can bulge a benji or 'dan barrel if you try to drive out a stack of stuck pellets

May 3 2017, 5:09 PM 

I've seen a couple bulged brass barrels over the decades, and that's the only way I can account for it. You can't heat them enough to melt the pellets, they unsolder, and drilling wipes out the rifling(I've seen that too)A LOT of those guns saw decades of hard use, and some were just plain abused . I've purchased (cheap) Sheridans that sat in a barn so long the stock was rotted halfway up the butt.

The barrels are soft soldered on, other than the receiver, which uses a slightly higher temp lead/tin solder...but not silver soldered or brazed.
