Thank you! :)

Ok, well Finished my build :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ! Thanks to Murray for sending me some pieces of leather, and instructions on how to mold it! so i could finally be able to finish the piston seal!

I cut a piece of leather, soaked it in water for about 1 minute, put it in the largest hole i made, took a hammer and a socket in the middle, smacked it gentally so that it would fit tight until it touched the bottom, let it dry for a couple of minutes, resoaked it again for a minute and redid the process till i got to the 3rd hole i made (largest to smallest), cut the excess leather and let it dried. After that i lubed the cylinder and piston cup with a really small amount of virgin olive oil. re-assembled the gun a test fired it. Everything went great! quarter size hole at 10 yards (last time i shot a springer was a couple of years ago) which im really happy with. Then i decided to disassemble it again to look at the piston seal to see if it was ok (that is when i took these photos of the seal). Put everything back together and done!!

Ps. i had to drill a hole at the top of the piston and tapped it after to be able to put a screw and washer.

What a great project. And perfect that you have a spare for parts. I assume the 624 is .22 caliber?

I have a 620 in 177 that shoots very well. BTW, when I up-powered my Crosman Phantom to full power, I was able to use the original Phantom spring in my 620. Slipped right in. (The original had broken in 2 pieces)

You of course know the year of manufacture is stamped by the barrel hinge to date you scoped verses non non scoped model.

If you had a spare barrel lock bolt I would be interested in purchasing. My 620's is missing.

Thanks for sharing. Slavia rocks.
