Ok, so hello everyone, I am new to this forum, and I came here trying to answer the following question:

Does anyone on this forum know where I can get custom parts for the Hercules XS-B5-10? I was given one for free, by a lady I know who was doing spring cleaning. This airgun (along with 4 others) were all in a box in her guest room closet for more than 10 years.

I shot it, and the levers feel stiff (lube is probably dry and gummy) and it was hard as heck to pump. (I could barely pump it 3 times.)

A pellet left the barrel about 3 shots out of five, but I think it's because the magazine might need lubrication.

I don't think the seals are bad; I suspect they are ok. But on all the old threads I could dig up on various forums, people talked about the eventuality of having the seals fail.

There was once a user (USTILAGO) on this forum that seemed to know a lot about them, but I searched his profile, and he hasn't posted since 2009. Does anyone know if he's still around, or possibly changed his user name?

Barring that, does anyone else on this forum know how to repair / refurbish / mod this gun?

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me.
