Barrel change, .177 to .22 ?

Postby AndyC on Sun May 26, 2013 6:23 am

Hi guys, a while since I posted here, great to catch up on the latest. ;)

As the title suggests, I'm interested in converting my T12 .177 to .22.

Obviously the barrel, bolt and mag need to be changed, but is the transfer port and hammer tension the same between the two calibers??

Any info much appreciated :)

Hi AndyC,

I think you'll find that the transfer port is identical for both calibers, but you will have increase the hammer spring tension for the same ft/lbs level it gives in .22 - easy enough job though :)

Thanks for the fast reply Zero4k.

I was hoping the coversion was as easy as that, makes sense for such a simple gun ;)

Now to get a quote from my Australian distributer for a barrel and bolt/probe.

Where are the parts available in the UK? I want to swap from .22 to .177 and was hoping to find someone who wants an action swap, but no luck yet.......

Thanks again Zero.

Looks like I might have to research the breech block a bit further.

My .177 T12 has the LW barrel with brass band where it is fitted into the action. Wonder if this has any bearing on wheather the .22 barrel will fit or not?
