Thanks. Yeah I'd appreciate if you could post that pic just in case I really haven't got it right. I have the knot wrapped around the little post on the stock side. Is that right? But when I close everything up and try to load the shells it's really tight. It was tight before, too, but not like this. I'm afraid to pull the barrel down too hard for fear of breakage. I'll try to post a pic of how I've assembled everything so you can see if I've done it correctly.
I did read last night that the air tubes (or whatever they're called) might have been cracked while taking the gun apart. That wouldn't account for the tightness, though. *sigh*
Sairex, yes, I discovered how to put the spring in last night, but as I said it didn't seem to be the problem. That doesn't mean I've put it in correctly, I guess, but it LOOKS like it is. lol
Thanks again, everyone, for your help.
