Need a tad more info on this one I think.........will it pump up and hold?? No?? What happens when you pump? Where's the air escaping from when you pump?

Just need a few details to get the boys a little closer :D

Cheers - Gus

Not that tough actually. There's only two to three seals in the whole gun (LOVE those pumpers!)

If it's not the seal on the outside of the valve, unscrew the valve body. There is a small washer just below the threads (probably not the culprit)

Now take out your valve stem: Is it white nylon on the end, or brass? If it's brass....time for a new stem (airsmith282 sells them) if it's nylon, theck for crap in the valve body, give it a good hot water rinse, a dab of oil and put it back together.

The only other thing it could be would be your pump-cup. easy to tell....when you pump does the air escape out the front tube? or do you hear it coming from the valve? airsmith also has cups.

The first clue here would be, "where does it leak?"

try finding the leak with some soapy water. also, remember that an o-ring doesn't have to be noticeably damaged to leak. it could have a tiny nick or cut that allows the pressure to escape.

its not the pump cup it still seals in the tube. the thing wont hold any air when i pump it..
it seems to be leaking out the pointed end where the nylon thing is attached to the spring inside...

Apart from the "nylon thing" whats at the other end of the spring? Metal and nylon or metal and brass? If they are both nylon, give 'em a good wash and put them back together. If it's brass, order a new one.

lol, when i said use soapy water i didn't mean wash it. pump the gun a couple times then apply the soapy water anywhere you think the gun might be leaking from. if you see it bubbling, that's where your leak is.

LOL at us, the 3 stooges of air-rifle-dum.

ha, i'm sure it's a quick and dirty fix. you probably put the check valve in backwards.

indeed i did put in the check valve backwards. this time after reasembling it all works fine. who knew you could fix a seal simply by taking it apart and putting it back togeather.

thanks for all your input.
