Is that the same girl from way back, when everyone was experimenting and all were being little over- zealous with the pumping. You had to repair her (housing, I think? Same one?? If so she has held up really well. Mine are still fine so far. (Knock on lead) But they don't get used that much either. :oops:

Mine is still good also but can't wear out if you don't use it. That is what I hate about pcp, pumpers and co2 sooner or later they always leak. Lousy orings and seals.

Happily report that the fix was easy once I found the leak. Mixed up a strong dishwater solution and misted that over the valve body. Immediately found the location of the leak. Was leaking out the valve retainer bushing. The oring that I used to fix the split housing had a brass sliver on it. Did a cleanup, back together and holding air like a dream.

Look forward to shooting it with the Walther Red Dot sight that Moltgordo sent me. :)
