Barrel can not be rebored from high to low but can be changed.
There one requires to have a new barrel.
I had changed the barrel of my Tommy 35 with a fresh barrel.
That worked pretty well.
Remember , one needs to have good gunsmith to do that.
Only in old Tommy I saw pipe barrel.

Basuda, from where & which gunsmith did you get bore changed? And where did you get a new barrel and approx cost of changing process? I am planning to get my smooth bore model 23 changed to a rifled barrel. Low powered accurate gun bug has bitten me too. :D

You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You might not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home the first two things you're going to do are: 1) Call someone with a gun. 2) Pray they get there in time.

Dear sam47,
If your 23 is from SDB , you can approach them.
Even though I doubt if they do that at all.
I got it done from Duttababu of Appu Brand AR maker.
Their factory near Shyam Bz is closed now.
Low power light gun gives immense pleasure of shooting.
I enjoyed that with my National 25.
I would suggest , wait for GenNex .
A gun of 2.6 kgs, 650 fps at muzzle, least noise and feather trigger , will surely outbeat other ARs in terms of shooting pleasure.
But remember shooting with this soft gun ,is real habit forming :D :D

Very Wise , Sam 47.I'll follow your advice and ask IHP for a new barrel and cocking link.My other air rifles in .22 are old and can be gracefully retired.
Thanks for your prompt response.

That gun is definitely in my to do list, especially after relubing the artemis, it is the personification of smoothness, power and accuracy together. I can only imagine what the GenNex will do. But I wish they had named it with a greek or roman name like pluto or venus like the name of Artemis. A nice cool name gives twice the pleasure while shooting and talking about the gun. :D

Recently I tried removing some coils from my ARs and tested their performance. They becomes really easier to cock and very much reduced recoil.I found that all my air rifles are heavily preloaded. But I have seen that German HW ARs have very less preload which can be striped and reassembled without a spring compressor. Apart from smooth and effortless operation, working life of internal parts like piston washer and outer parts like breach washer,trigger, scope,etc will last for long time.Also will improve accuracy due to less recoil.Also the spring lasts longer than a heavily preloaded spring.I found my springs were heavily bent inside.So there is lot of reasons to avoid a heavy preload. If you feel that the recoil and thud is heavy, then you can easily remove 3 or 4 coils and stay with same power.


With regards,
vsraja

:agree: I have done the experiment with gd-600. Even when I disassembled my Artemis yesterday, the spring was bent at the anterior end. After straightening , the gun is smoother to cock and more consistent with the power. But I am not cutting away the coils as i apprehend power loss , which I certainly dont want in my beloved Artemis. Funny thing is that like hw, air arms tx200 mk iii also doesnot have any preload, yet it nears 15 fpe with astonishing consistency.
