    Did it with a reversed pellet, with two match heads worth stuffed inside the skirt. Imagine two match heads combusting under pressure in 1/1000th second. Goes off on a brick wall as well as on a small light target.

    Nice trick with the ether, sorry I haven't a spring air gun any more or I'd want to try it out. Saw a guy on YouTube put some Vicks or similar into the back of a pellet to make it diesel. There must be a list of stuff out there that you can get to diesel.

    Here is my first ever rifle - an air rifle I got as a a birthday present about 36 years ago.
    My brother took it out after some rabbits and reckoned he dropped it barrel first into soft ground, but somehow this shattered the stock. He taped it up with packaging tape, and 30 or so years later it's still going strong - with the original tape! As they say, "if it ain't broke don't fix it", or should that be "if it's only a little bit broke don't fix it"?

    He heh. Far be it from me to diss the good tape, but if you DO want to fix it, put some epoxy into the cracks. Then drill holes across cracks and put in a long coarse-thread brass wood screws with some more epoxy on the threads. Tighten then cut head off screw and file flat. Super strong repair and does not look bad having a wee spot of brass showing here and there.

    @Max Headroom this is a more precise method of the same thing. One of several different types apparently.

    jeeez Max......even I do a betterer job of it than bubba does.....if you are going to doctor a .22lr projectile (or a subsonic .30 cal one ) at least do it properly.
    they work very very well when done right. we were making power points for 10 years before winchester put them out....simple quick twirl with sharp end of 4" nail opened up cavity nicely.

    Not my proudest moment. But luckily I got rid of it before I felt too guilty. Was a gecado single shot. Had a bulge in the barrel from a "mate" not realizing he had a squib load. Shortened and suppressed it and had to ghetto a scope into the side as it had no sights.

    Oh that is a shame was my very first rifle one of those! Shoots so well, even with a wiggly screw as a fore sight.... 2" steel plate @70m every day.... just have to aim over to the left or the right depending which way its been wiggling! Nice trigger too.

    in that situation I cant really see the problem.
    kept it working and people shorten the hell out of everything nowadays.

    It must have been too heavy for the poor chap so the butt was hollowed out.
