    I was hearing something clunk once in a while when I pick up my Huntsman and finding the clunk in the moderator I checked to see if it was tight and low and behold the barrel is loose? No wonder I was have some accuracy issues the last time I shot it about a week ago. I took the scope off and tweaked the two set screws on the front part of the receiver (just barely touched them could not even tell that they moved) but the barrel now seems tight? Is the barrel screwed into the receiver? What position should it be in? How tight should those set screws be set? I have only had the rifle about a month and have sent a notice to the group that I bought it from but no reply from them yet. Any help would be appreciated!

    Well I should have out this in the PCP forums maybe it'll find it's way over there or a moderator might move it?

    I bet what you were hearing was the shroud rattling inside the shroud band that attaches to the air tube. I had a Regal and remedied this by loosening the shroud band sliding it out of the way and putting a single wrap of clear wrapping tape around the shroud and then sliding the band back over the tape and retightening the 3 set screws that hold the band in place.

    This simply takes up a little of the slack and cushions the shroud in the band but still lets it move freely.

    The actual barrel is inside the shroud and it slips inside the receiver and is held in place with set screws. Don't try to screw it in thinking that will snug it up. What you'll end up doing is misaligning the barrel and transfer port and really make a mess of things. Holler if you need any help.

    I talked to the AirgunsofArizona guy and he thinks that it is the barrel shroud that is loose and I removed the barrel and action from the stock and on the bottom of the barrel there are two tiny set screws and they were loose so I tweaked them up a little and that seemed to fix the problem? Thanks for the reply!

    Brink, to find out if you got the rattle out just bump the air tube with your hand without grasping the the barrel shroud. If it still rattles do the tape trick.
