I was shooting at my Zombie field target yesterday when I realized something screwy was going on with my Daisy 953. Depending on how quickly I shot the pellet from my Daisy 953 would travel differently.

Listening closely to the barrel I could hear a hiss as the compressed air escaped from the chamber. I remembered reading to added a few drops of Pellgun oil to the sponge and O-ring at the top of the pump but still seemed to be losing pressure.

I am hoping to get a look this evening, although there is a hockey game that might interfere, and was wondering what I should be looking for.

I haven't had the 953 for very long and less than 250 pellets have been shot through it. Do O-rings really wear out that quickly? Are there generic O-rings that can be used or do you have to get a special kit?

Frussssstrated!

Sounds like some small debris got into the valve seat and its not sealing properly, hard to tell with out having a look at it but form what your describing thats what it might be.

Looks like I'll have time after all as I was mistaken about the hockey game, it's only tomorrow. :?

Put your finger over the end of the pumped [unloaded] barrel to see if it is coming out there. If it is, it's likely the valve. If not, it's the o-ring on the piston, which also works to hold the charge. It only takes a speck of grit to mess up either. There is a generic o-ring to fit, but i don't know the size, someone will chime in with it.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for chipping in.

I took apart the valve unit and cleaned it all up. Pumped it once and let it sit for a bit. No sound of air escaping. I only have a 10m shooting space for now so I'll only know for certain on the weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Per chance, does anyone know the dimensions of the O-rings in a Daisy 953?

Thanks.
