Ok, I was so exited when I got this gun, seriously. But it has a leaky barrel that doesn't even fire. I have searched, did what just some bob told me to do: pour water down the barrel, shake, release the water, point down and fire for a few times. It didn't work. I have no clue what to do. I was hoping you guys do. Seams like all my airguns have leaks.... This thing has had a leaky/dead barrel ever since I bought it.

Well, do you know where the leak is coming from?
Also, check this.
That's all I know of. B)

Big Salvos are VERY prone to leaks. I have had one of them, and it was a lemon. When they are produced, the glue they must use on them is very weak, because if you bump the barrel hard at all, it will break some of the glue. It's like just stronger than elmer's glue. I've never opened one up, but the barrels are probably just glued on to the air tank (I haven't opened up an air gun a a long time), so you should just be able to put some plumber's goop or epoxy around where the barrel is attached to the air tank.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

What I do for air gun leaks, is Bob's method, but instead of water I use silicone spray. Best do it outside because that's a lot of silicone spray. Saved my hornet tanks that way.
