newfie5150,

https://www.replicaairguns.ca/kwc-1911-inner-valve-set

I have also read (but can't recall where) that the plastic from a sour cream or yogurt type container or something similar can be used. Fortunately, I haven't had to try it out yet myself. Might be worth a try, nothing to lose other than a CO2 caplet or two. :)

Cheers!

I am not sure, wish I could recall where I read it.

Edit: Ok, I found it. On this forum, none the less!
R-Gun Pete used Coffee can lid for valve seals. https://www.airgunforum.ca/forums/topic73457.html

The original seals are certainly thicker, but I don't think multiple layers of the plastic will work. It would likely leak out between the layers for the CO2 cartridge seal.
I have also read of someone using the seal from under a pop (or beer) bottle cap or gasket material for engines.

Replacing the original is probably best.

There has also been some success wrapping the end of the CO2 with teflon tape. Lots of vids on Youtube.

Worth a try?
