Hey guys

I just received and order of better quality replacement o rings for the PP700 from oringsandmore.com

Because there is no mention of the o ring sizes in the manual for the pp700, credit goes to my brother for researching the sizes. One issue is that he ordered 12mm by 1.5mm but they sent him 12.5mm by 1.5mm.

We havent tried the o-rings yet, but i was wondering if anyone could coment and think this size discrepancy will be an issue?

While i am asking, where do you all get your o rings from? And is there a list of the o rong sizes in the PP700, anywhere online?

Thanks for any help and advice!

Buy o ring kits.

I often found myself ordering from Crosman 2.50 cent rings and 10$ for shipping.. It adds up, so I just spent 100$ and got a couple O ring kits and replace them as I need.

I go to harborfreight and they have this, if you can find someone in the states to get you this and ship it to you, not sure of the sizes available, but you can try this.

I bought mines from Aliexpress now.
Give the one you want a good measure (a bit tricky to measure the soft rubber o rings, I think you can do it right~) and follow the size to look it up in Aliexpress...

Or you can try this Canadian company.

Better yet, here is a Metric kit from PA.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I figured smarter minds than me, had ideas for finding o rings.

I like that Princes Auto kit, as i shop there "frequently". Hahaha.

Have bought from oringsandmore, good quality at a bargain price point.

A couple other places worth looking at are Hitec seals and Quest Sealing Solutions....more industrial, but eh...a good source is still a good source. ;)

I actually have the factory o-ring kit for the pp700 that I ordered from Canada shooting supplies and it doesn't seem to include the breach seal which I find very odd. Unless it's just missing from the package I received.

I have seen the kits online at Amazon and Princess Auto.... The problem is they don't have at least one size I need for the PP700.

12.5mmx1.5mm

I don't have a lot of experience with o-rings for PCP airguns so I am learning where to get them and how to use/replace/evaluate them in the process.

You need to consider the hardness of the o-ring as this is one of the main factor in sealing it, probably hydraulic shop might have more selections.

Yeah, i would like better seals than what comes from the factory for the PP700 and hardness is one factor.
