How does one tell they have a bad breech seal?
It just occurred to me if you dusted the breech area with talcum powder and fired your airgun you could detect a bad seal.
Other than that I suppose if your seal appears damaged then it should definitely be replaced.

Smart idea to do the dusting! Steal one of the wife's cosmetic brushes to lightly put it on!

You can also use a Kleenex on top of the breech to detect air loss...KEN.
