    Wow! Check out pictures 3 and 4. Going to save these pics for future reference.

    Since IGB makes replacement barrels, all may not be lost. Also appears to need the return spring assembly.

    I believe i own this gun now. I just bought one that is blown up exactly like that. I had a spare barell and fixed it.

    This is in fact the GB i bought a few weeks back. It was a squibb round that was stuck in the barrel. I had an extra barrel and the gun is now running like a sewing machine. It was missing grips and screws as well as the recoil assembly.
