Try some oil down the barrel and see if that helps.

SOURCE: Daisy Red Ryder BB gun won't shoot

1) **** the gun and look through the hole in the top, half way down the barrel.

2) You should see a BB loaded into this area.
- if no bb is present and you can see a circular magnet, then it is not loading.

3) if the bb is present and does not exit the barrel when you fire the gun, then the bb is deformed and will require the rifle to be dissasembled and rodded through the back side, forcing the bad bb out of the way.

4) If no bb or magnet is present through the hole, call daisy for a replacement. This indicates the shot tube has moved and will no longer load.

Husband took apart bb airgun 5170.I need u to show me how to put back together.HELP!

Hello, Linda -

Do you mean the Daisy Powerline 5170 air p1zt0l? (Have to spell it that way because a algorithm considers the word profantiy) If so . . .

For safety and reliability reasons, I recommend you locate a gunsmith familiar with Daisy products and find out what it will cost for him or her to re-assemble the firearm.

See the manual for the 5170 here:

Look at the last column in the manual and the sections headed Repair of Powerline Air P1zt0ls and Guns in Warranty and Guns Out of Warranty.

Best wishes.

Hi bought a daystate renegade fired about 600 pellets in 177 now will not fire any ideas why

All air guns need gun oil down the hole the air comes from in order to keep plungers from wearing out . Treat them every few times out with a small drop or two. Also check to see if you had a bad pellet get stuck.

How do i remove stuck pellets in the barrel of my gamo c 15

Hello, William -

According to the instruction manual for the Gamo C-15 Blowback firearm, you could use ". . . a 4.5mm caliber cleaning rod (.177 in) if a BB has become blocked in the barrel."

The information regarding a blocked barrel is on Page 11 of the instruction manual in the REPAIRS section.

If you do not have the instruction manual, this is the link to the PDF document (Adobe Reader software needed - free):
TinyURL link:
The information is on Image 6, right side, of the PDF document.

(Quote from the instruction manual):
A compressed air p1st0l (have to spell it that way or the Fixya algorithm reads it as a "bad word") that is not functioning well can be dangerous. Do not attempt to repair the gun yourself, since this may cause abnormalities in its functioning. Use a 4.5mm caliber cleaning rod (.177 in) if a BB has become blocked in the barrel. Take your gun to approved gunsmiths or to professional repair specialists approved for this type of product.
(End quote)

Best wishes.
