I have been cleaning out my father's house and ended up acquiring and selling off A LOT of firearms.
I kept his old pellet gun because I remembered it as a kid- a 157 Pellgun Made in Dunnville in the 50's
Got the CO2 and pellets and set it up- in the tube and pierced and gas started to come out of the muzzle and the breech.
Managed to fire off 6 or 8 shots as the hissing stopped but a final little hiss and then no more gas.
Probably has not been fired in 40 yrs- so not surprising but I am new to air/gas guns but I figure there are o rings and seals at fault here.
My question....... where do you find the gaskets and seals for an old Crosman like this one- I have found the exploded diagrams for it and will strip it down but I am thinking there will be dried out seals to replace in it.

Thanks so much

Just learning about these guys- made a few miles from here in my wife's hometown- might explain why she got 4 bulleyes in a grouping with 5 shots (me - not so good - lucky the gas ran out to end the embarrassment)
