At a 1ft range there isn't a feather out there that will stop a pellet from a 8ft/lb+ air rifle. I have a Hammerli 850 0.177 CO2 rifle running 11ft/lbs. It will put a hole straight through a rabbits head at 20yds, so a rooster head at 1ft has no chance.

With it shooting high at such an obviously low power I reckon the previous owner fired it with the barrel cocked. This has bent the barrel and damaged the piston head and/or spring. You need to get it checked out.

I see from your profile that you live in Rodney District. Maybe you could contact the North Harbour airgun club as I'm sure someone there would take a look. They'd also have a chronograph to check the power. There are some members on here who may see this and help.
