Hello everyone.
I have a ( Canadian tire bought ) Beeman 1040 Series air rifle with .22 cal. The thing chews up the breach oring. so I need to lap it but my problem is no one can tell me what oring goes in it. I have tried Beeman in California who gave me a list of US guys but they can't help. I have tired Canadian Tire but that is a bigger joke.I have been to several automotive stores with a wide selection of orings but nothing matches. If the oring fits in the grove then it is not thick enough. Does anyone have an idea of the oring that fits this piece of crap.
Thx
Francisco

Take your old one, and maybe the piece it needs to fit upon for sizing. Once that's done you will have a # that can be readily found with ease.

If you can find the right o-ring that's ideal, but if not, you can probably shim the groove to make a thinner one work. I've heard of people making shims by punching out thin aluminium or layers of paper. You can even use a couple of turns of dental floss which works better than you'd think and can even act as a reservoir for oil :)

Hi
Thanks for your reply. I have been using Teflon tape but the orings that i found locally are just a little thin. If you fill the bottom of the grove with tape or a paper shim the rifle loses alot of power because the side walls of the grove are not compensated for.I will have to "mic" the thickness and order some oring materiel and cut them make them myself. I just wanted to avoid the work and the expense to have this shipped to me. I am also rebuilding a Daisey Powerline 880. I found a great site online. Parts were $24.00 Canadian for basically a few orings and a valve but shiipping was $41.00 for something that fits in an small envelope Not worth it. That will be about$75 when all finished. Not worth it for me.
I was hoping someone had bought some here already and could give me a part number and I could order many cuz this gun chews them up
Thx

Sounds familiar. Shipping can be a real killer in Canada, speaking from both sides of the customer/vendor fence.

I went through a similar issue with o-rings for my p-17, and eventually ordered from oringsandmore on ebay. Shipping was $3.50 which I thought was pretty reasonable. Of course, it's hard to do that if you don't have the size for the o-ring you need.

Sometimes the high shipping prices that show on websites are a limitation of the website software and if you get in touch you might find they can throw a couple of rings in an envelope for a lot less.
