Hi all. I just opened my Crosman Phantom 1000 tomight and Have a question or two. First It was quite dificult to break the barrel. I actually had to bump the top of the barrel to open it up. Is this gun normlly that tight? and also, when I pull the barrel down as to cock it, I hear a kind of squeaking sound. Is this also normal or am I in need of some silicone oil? Sorry for teh newbie questions, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Steve

It will loosen up after you use it for awhile. The squeaking could be anything- lube the joints around the barrel block and if you have some silicone lube,a drop or two in the chamber won't hurt anything.

I had problems with sloppy barrel lockup with my G1, and I have read about others with similar problems. Tight is good.

A grinding metallic sound would be bad - I wouldn't worry about squeaking. You have plastic washers in the barrel pivot, a plastic piston seal, and a little plastic wheel on the cocking linkage that rolls against the plastic stock (excuse me, "synthetic"). Break out the silicone just as Eric suggested.

Yes. And Crosman G1. And Remington Summit. And Remington Vantage. And Chinese B18/B19. Same trigger as many Gamo's.
