I just purchased this gun today and its in great shape but it doesn't have enough power to shoot a pellet looks like it might be the seal that needs replacing.
What's the best place to get a seal for this gun?

Thanks

I was reading on replacing the seal and it was saying you need a spring compressor... Has anyone made a homemade compressor?

If you're careful you can use a common bar clamp. I use a hollow aluminum bar clamp with a block stuck in it to prevent my vise from crushing it, wind it up tight to fit the gun, remove the pin and/or bolt, then ease off on the clamp to gradually drop spring tension. If it slips off to one side obviously that's dangerous, potentially blasting someone or something valuable with the end cap. So be careful. You can use a second clamp to surround the end cap on the clamp head. Or tie it down with something secure.

so now that you've mentioned it...
I was going to say the same thing yesterday but refrained just in case, you just never know some people are just accident prone :wink:
I worked on two and didn't need a clamp or spring compressor, its a short spring and there isn't much tension on it.

The thing in the link is a spring compressor. But you're right about not needing a spring compressor for this air pistol as the spring is relatively short.
