Post subject:  New to the Airgunforum! From east central Alberta

About 60 plus years ago I worked one summer to earn a pump air rifle.
My sons were Each introduced to Ducks Unlimited air rifles before They even started grade one!
A great training tool. I had a black powder store In the 1970’s but also handled the BSA line and still have a Scorpion in my possession!
I have more than a couple of decent anti magpie/pigeon rifles. Recently I had the opportunity to gain possession of a Crosman 38T that had net been used for a couple of decades, but still held air in the CO2 tank. Yes it pushed the .22 caliber pellets out! It needed a left side scale for the handle.
I looked all over for a set but ended up buying a .177 caliber 38T new in the box but my assessment it that the valve that send the CO2 out to the cylinder is stuck open. Put in a new CO2 and it spewes out the end of the barrel in 3 seconds. I have a complete rebuild set of rings & gaskets but am wondering if that valve is repairable or just replace it.
I purchased the .177 just for a nice set of grips!

welcome! I'm sure you can clean up your 38T valve! rebuild kits are very cheap and you may be able to simply clean and oil it up to function.

Thank you! I was hoping that would be possible! Looks like I have some work to do on it.
