397 Ben/Sher .177 air rifle - installing repair kit problem
Crosman bought out benjamin / sheridan, and they still repair just all their pump guns. The ring sounds like a piece of a pellet, the barrels are silver soldered to the bottom tube, Not lead. Also, the repair kit should not have too many parts, you can only go so far with those guns before needing special equipment to get them apart. Get a hold of Crosman and tell them that benjamin sent you a bad part. They should fix it.
I had an old Benjamin Franklin in .22 cal, it was just a brass tube with a stock and barrel. I sent it to them, to be repaired, and I wanted the .22, because I had the 5mm and the 177. So I got it back, cost $29, New barrel, in .177, soldered on, new guts, new paint, trigger, bolt, the works.. Brand new gun. I told them I wanted the brass and I wanted the .22, They said oops, sorry. I didn't complain, nice old gun. Hope this helps.
