research indicates the barrel will fit, but some the chamber/leade needs to be mod'd to allow some part of the 760 to push the pel.

Some got details/photos/ links to what that is?

...in the plastic transfer housing that's all! The 760 barrel has a type of knurling to allow for friction fit (pressed in).

in the reversed 1377 barrel that I put onto my 760 was to take a HARDENED phillips screwdriver end and chuck it into the drill, hold the drill straight, pull the trigger, and slowly let the phillips head gouge out a "leade" for you... I'm sure it only works because the barrel isn't too hard but it worked great for me... My 760 is a one hole gun at 10 meters now...

One more thing I forgot to mention is that I tried it without a lead and it will not work because the sharp barrel edge will shave off part of your pellet, messing up the accuracy...

You planning on doing that build off? I'm not... I don't have the money or tools to go in "hard" without half *ssing it but I'd like to see what comes out of it, especially with the applicable 1377 mods...

... he also sold me the barrel support ( part # 760E125 ). Original part is plastic, the new part is metal and needs slight fitting but is worth it. Still needs some tweaking but surely beats the original barrel.

you're scared ? go get a dog ... I'd rather die standing than live on my knees

ive been here all good things about the potential here, the gun im negotiating for is a rifled barrel, shoots 510.. but these 1377 mods might be tempting, trying to stay on budget and use alot of the junk i have laying around.. Will the 1077 work??

I think the 1077 has the straw barrel like the 2100... The barrel mods that I did on my AM77(2100)were originally made for the 1077... If it was a 66 you'd have little or no problems fitting a 1077 barrel and shroud...

To fit a 1077 barrel on a 760 you would need to make the barrel hole on the receiver bigger to fit the shroud (the barrel may no longer sit concentric in the shroud), make an adapter so that the straw barrel would fit the transfer port (barrel support), and replace the barrel band to take the 1077 shroud...

The 1760 barrel is way easier to put on a 760 than the 1077... You just have to figure out how to do the sights, unless you are going with just the scope...

I'd prefer the 1760 barrel due to it being rigid like the 760. Wouldn't use the soda straw barrels, ever, if you don't have to.

If you have a large enough drill, Rob, you can turn down the end using files. To keep the barrel from flopping around due to gyroscopic torque, use a bearing close to the working end (7/16" I.D. by 1" O.D.) and lock the bearing down in some wood blocks. Hold dril with one hand and files with the other. Pauper lathe!
