Hi There

Baikal Makarov
(Pardon my lack of technical terms for air gun parts )
I am no expert in these types of repairs, anyone know how or where I can locate the exact seal that surrounds the C02 piercing nipple.
I've tried two brands of C02 bulb, both have slight hiss at that part of the mag. Crossman is worse, and the no name brand is better... but there is still the slightest hiss,

I can buy the entire part for $30 on ebay, but would like to just find the darn seal.
I also noticed the piercing nipple, is loose, it moves a little... is that normal or should the piercing nipple be stiff?

Anyone have any ideas?

This is the entire part new

the piercing nipple should not move, make sure the part is seated properly check second pic,
you should be able to make a seal for it since its just a flat type washers style,
if you cant make one contact J_K_S member20181.html
pm him and ask him if he would make a couple for you, tell him Ace sent you.... :wink:

Tks Ace, the piercing part does wobble. Unfortunately... Looks like I may have to buy the entire part... :(
Is there a way to take it apart to tighten it ?

You can try to wrap CO2 cartridge with plumbing teflon type : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgsM89aZfqg

Not a permanent solution but might work in case your flipped seal start leaking again : )

You should measure the seal if it’s still intact, then you can pass me the measurements so I can make you a new one when that seal eventually fails.
