Clearing a jammed Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun

Sorry- for the lack of politics / conspiracy theory in this thread! I hope I won't be removed by the moderator

My son's bb gun jammed and refuses to unjam using the method in the instructions.

Is there any thing else I should try before I "return to manufacturer?"

Thanks in advance!

Try shaking it around. Take the butt and hit it on the ground to see if it'll dislodge.

Not sure what else to do.

Before any of the Lib's flame on you- Just take it back and trade it in on a nice dress for your son!

I did try running a rod down the barrell today, Found an immovable object---"premium" daisy bb... about 4 inches from the muzzel. seemed reluctant to move. disassembly, or shipping back to Daisy for service is probably the only answer a this point Not happy.
BTW: I don't think my son Evan would look very good in a dress... my daughter on the other hand, will look adorable firing the gun when she gets a bit older!

Back when I was shooting/handloading, the idiot running the press would sometimes forget to put the powder in the cartridge. Primer, yes, bullet, yes..
But no go-juice.
The result would be a bullet stuck in the barrel.
I used a 1/4" diameter steel rod to push the bullet out.
I have a 9mm Colt 1911 barrel with a nice bulge in it, where the bullet stuck, and the next one pushed it out.
For the Daisy, a 1/8" diameter steel rod should do that, from the breech end of the barrel.
Trickle a little WD-40 on both sides of the obstruction..

You could always try reverse engineering...... compressed air blowing down the barrel back to the "chamber". This assumes you have access to a compressor and a rubber tipped blow-gun.

Try heating the barrel a little bit. Might let the barrel expand just enough to let the bb fall out. Also the try the wd-40.

Maybe you could exchange it for an AK-47 assault rifle.

No kid nowadays who is really a "stone gangsta" would be want to seen with a BB gun in front of his homies.

After all, they're legal now.

THe plastic thing available today... barf!
I had the real one!You could remove the barrel, get into the swimming pool, cock it and shoot a stream of water! Great fun!
Also made for a short-lived b-b gun.
Mine executed numerous birds.
I bought one recently out of nostalgia, and was disappointed.. it's not the gun me or Ralphie ("Christmas Story") learned to love.
