                   Hi there, I have tried getting help from many places and I just donít know what to do. If you can help me with this problem I am about to explain that would be great, and if not then itís okay. What I am having a problem with is the barrel on my Project salvo.
                  What I noticed is that the barrel (which is the stock barrel) is not aligning correctly, or it seems as so. Say you were looking down the gun from the rear, as if you were aiming at a can. The back portion of the gun, all of the body before the shroud and barrel, could be aligned with the can. However, the front portion and barrel is slightly to the right of the can.
                  I have tried opening the gun up and seeing if any parts were causing this problem, and could not locate anything which would cause such a problem. I have cancelled out the possibility of the shroud causing the problem, since I tested it without the shroud even being attached. So from this point of view, I figure I could either have a warped barrel, or possibly the threads inside the gun are not aligning the barrel completely straight into the body.
                  If I could get any help with this dilemma it would be greatly appreciated, because I just spent around 80 dollars on this gun yesterday and would like to be able to put all of the extras to use. Also, this gun is lightly used and I can count on one hand the number of games I have participated in with it, and am very careful with it, so I canít believe that the barrel or anything is warped from rugged use.

                 Thank you if you can help and I appreciate your time, Matt Wolfel
