Hi all,
I'm thinking about switching the smooth twist barrel .22 on my FX Impact for a LW .177. Does anyone in the air gunning community have the skills/interest in a paying job to make thst happen? The bolt probe would have to be changed too.
Any help is appreciated,

Unfortunately I do not have access to lathe anymore, so for the time being (foreseeable future at my shop, until I break down buy a lathe) I will not be able to help with any lathe related repairs/parts :(

Hi Ryan

Have you tried to contact FX. They will be very happy to send you a bolt probe.

They have an excellent customer service.

You can always try airgunsource they will be able to order one for you.

Hi Biagio,
Travis will be happy to order one, but it takes so long. I figured if I was going to the trouble of having a barrel made I may as well get the bolt probe done too. The magazine isn't an issue because I can feed the pellets directly into the breech, and mags are frowned upon for FT anyway.

Thanks for the reply anyway,
