Shot tube removal can be tricky. I would heat up shot tube and turn it carefully with channel locks with lots of tape around both sides of jaws and a rag at the tip to avoid marks. Also sometimes the nut in front of the plunger get loose. (Not fun!) Putting pressure on captured nut from stock end with a long straight screwdriver helps. I have a 108-29 that the tabs broke off that hold the shot tube nut. (Not good!) Now it is being held in place because it was sandwiched between plunger head and tapered barrel, so if If I cocked it and took shot tube out at same time it would go back into stock end of gun for sure.
Okay, Black Bart, now you get yours!!!

Thank you for the pics. Very nice work and very imaginative. That double barrel is a nice looker as well. Cool

Fuse, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with family.
Glad you enjoyed the pictures of the modifications. They're as much fun to make as to shoot. Already have an idea for next spring's project. Thanks for showing an interest. My wife is soooo proud of her Tommy Gun!!

I still can't post pix on this forum. I'll get some together and email them to you. Give me a day or two.

I find there is a fine line between "collector" and "gatherer". For me, it's the fun of it all. I refuse (that is my wife refuses) to spend a fortune this hobby. Old ones I try to restore or Frankenstein. I also have a blast re-styling new 105's into looking like other guns ie: Russian DP28, Mare's Leg, Tommy Guns, Coach Gun,etc. If it ain't fun, don't bother.

Except for a nice model 96 that I keep original, I don't actually 'collect' Daisys or any type of airgun for that matter, so I suppose I don't really belong here in the first place.
 
I took a few Daisys that had been neglected/abused to the point they were worthless to a collector and along with a new production Red Ryder from China, I set out to make myself my ideal BB gun. Along the way I have learned a lot and thought I would pass that info along when I could. A few appreciate it, others could care less and that's okay, too.

I'm kind of a hybrid airgun hobbiest. I too bought 95% of the guns I aquired in lots from folk who were offloading. I'm still buying. I'm really not a wealthy man so none of them ever go out to be fixed. I fix/reseal the ones I can, and the rest become parts. If I really really like a gun I keep it as a shooter. All the rest go up for sale. So for a minimum initial outlay, I can be hip deep in a self sustaining hobby. It truly costs me nothing. Karen and I have about a dozen shooters that we wont part with and another 50-60 guns that are currently "in the pipeline". Happy Thanksgiving to everybody.
