First new guy HI, and yes I blame you guys for this new hoby. Lets see I started out with .22lr now I spend more time with a
.177 pellet. My girlfriend gets a good laugh about an adult playing with a pellet gun. I do realy enjoy it though and thus the purches
of a b51. I needed a .22 pellet rifle to right, and I wanted to learn about tuning; ok like taking stuff apart and seeing how they work.
Now my problem, when I put air into the gun it valve locked right down to around 1300psi. thats odd ithought oh ya I seem to have a leak to. first thought was fill valve no its coming from the barrel oh well it was all coming a part anyways. when I took the valve apart sure enough the white plastic thing had the top broken off it.
A: anybody making selling valves?
B: where do you guys get your darlin from. assuming you start with .5" rod
and lastly was an askew valve guide causing preload and the vavle lock. Or when trying to fire under lock up did I damage the white plastic thing, and have a sacked out hammer spring?
Oh ya the safety was removed as was scew #26 hammer guide screw if that matters

Let's see if I can provide some answers.
1. The valve stems are a known problem. In the States, Mike Melick Flying Dragon Air Rifles org, has the replacement stems.
2. Delrin can be purchased at a lot of metal suppliers. Online Metals has it in all sizes.
3. The valve lock was most likely caused by the valve self destructing. But you need to replace the guide screw.

Hope this helps get you back to shooting. Bart
