Hi, This past weekend I purchased a Sears Model 799.19052 sometimes known as a 'Golden Boy' because of the brass colored receiver. Basically it is a Daisy 1894 model.

It is in almost mint condition, the best I have ever seen except for the fact that something is wrong with the power. It shots with a powerful sound and the lever shows normal resistance in each direction. The problem is that the BB hardly gets out of the barrel.

I tried the 'oil fix', putting auto trans fluid down the barrel overnight without success.

I would like to repair it myself but, although I have repaired many airguns, I have no experience with this model.

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to go about it? I do have a 'parts' gun just like it except for condition.

Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Regards, gkenny.

I think you could use a factory service manual. Cut and past this link in your browser for one one ebay.

Sounds like maybe the shot tube is broke or something lodged in there? I've never rebuilt one of these but I hear they're more  difficult than 25's RR's etc. I'm sure you'll get it.Smile

  Send me an e-mail and I'll get back to you on how to repair it.  Your abutment seal is stuck to the plunger seal and there is no air being compressed.  The seals are probably compressed and hardened from sitting down at the end of the air chamber which is tapered slightly.  Don't keep shooting it, more damage can happen when you slam the whole assembly against the feed bushing.  A properly sealed 1894 should not shoot and make a bunch of noise and vibration, they are soft and quiet when properly sealed, just like many other Daisy's.  I can instruct you how to take it apart.  I have a bunch of them already apart so I can show you some pictures.

It is worth noting that the repair manual is mostly applicable, but there are some minor differences between those and the other 1894 like them. For instance, if memory serves, the front sight is held in place with an internal spring clip, as opposed to the normal screw. And, obviously, no grip band needs messed with.

That might be the only real difference.
