Disassembling a Gamo Hunter 220, Part 1

I picked up a Gamo 220 Hunter a while back for a pittance.

What a boring stock.

Removing the front screws.

See the yellowed dried up lube?

Rear screw.

The stamped piece centers the stud on the stock and presumably spreads the recoil.

Plastic bushing on the cocking arm.


The end cap is a cheap piece of rubbery plastic that fits poorly.

I broke the barrel to take the detent force off of the pivot.

It tooks a bit of torque to unscrew.

The linkage won't come apart yet...

The e-clip at the upper right corner needs to be removed along with the spring behind the linkage piece.

I put the spring and e-clip safely away.

The linkage rotates off now.

There's a small plastic shoe that slides along the stock under all that old lube.
More to come...

Thank you.
I disassembled a similar airgun and when finished, had the small plastic bushing from the cocking arm left over.
Thanks to your pictures, I found out where it goes.
