Put Together A 177 Caliber Pellet Gun

A 177 caliber pellet pistol is designed for target practice and will allow the owner to develop a more accurate “shooting eye” than when firing most other handguns. Proper maintenance of a pellet pistol is necessary for the life of the pellet pistol. It must regularly be disassembled for cleaning and lubricating. Putting the pellet gun together is just a matter of reversing the assembly process after the cleaning has been finished. A properly maintained pellet pistol will work efficiently for many years.

Instructions

1. Place a soft cloth on a table. Place the frame of the pellet gun on the soft cloth with the hammer section facing to the left.

2. Put the trigger clip into the bottom front edge of the trigger where it meets the pellet gun’s frame.

Insert the barrel into the hole in the left side of the sliding plate assembly. Push the barrel fully into the hole in the left side of the sliding plate assembly with your fingers.
