I'm looking for someone to repair my Crosman Mark 1. I can't get the roll pin out of the piercer lever so I can replace the seals. Is there anyone in the GTA.

Which part # are you having the problem with-10-081? Roll pins normally come out pretty easily with an appropriately-sized punch (or blunted finishing nail, etc.)... http://www.crosman.com/pdf/manuals/CMK1 ... &%20PL.pdf

My mk1 has a lever and not the knob. So it may not be 10-081 part, I'm not sure. I have tried with a squared off finishing nail that just fits the hole, It just keeps bending the nail, Ive soaked it with wd40 but to no avail. Does the pin come out only on 1 side?

One way to find out is to try pushing it out from the opposite side. Can't tell from looking at mine (I have both versions of the Mark 1).
If you have access to sewing needles, find a big one that fits the hole, and snap off the pointed end. These are made from stainless steel, and are stronger than a nail.

Thanks, I have tried from both ends nothing moves. I'm going to try and find (buy) a punch the right size and a roll pin that size, I may have to drill it out and put in a new pin but I'm afraid I might cause damage.

Well, I finally was able to remove the roll pin and guess what, you can't get to the seal that way. It looks like you have to some how unscrew the thin threaded metal insert at the other end (where the piercing pin pierces the co2 cartridge), another dilemma it looks like you need a special tool. So my question is still, does anyone know where I can have my MK1 serviced??

voltar1 on the forum rebuilt both of my end caps for me....mine were the lever type like yours. You will require a spanner to rebuild those caps, hence Walter (voltar1). The rest of the gun is easy to service your self.

Hi Again,
I want to thank Joe for puting me in contact with Leonard Joe (Vintage Airgun Collector & Airgunsmith) his E mail webleyguy@gmail.com He has solved all my MK1 issues. I am very pleased with his expertise, knowledge and fairness. Like Joe Constant, I would recommend Leonard to anyone and everyone who needs help with their airguns.
Thank you to everyone who tried to help along the way. My MK1 is no longer sick and therefore nor am I.
Regards
Flexo

Congratulations! They're great little pistols.
Good that you found him-Len's airgun knowledge and experience are the stuff of legends...
