I have acquired a older 38c 22 crosman revolver that has not been fired for a long time.I loaded it up and attempted to fire it , pulled the trigger and heard co2 leaking. I assume it is seals leaking. Will lubing solve this or is it a seal job?
My only experience with an air gun is my 65 year old Daisy Red rider. Thanks

Seal job for sure.
Old seals go bad and get hard even from sitting around.

C02 carts have a bit of lube in them.
I would 'take her out for a run' so to speak and blamity blam (with or without ammo) for a bit, it may shake the age (with the chill cycles) off and seal up.
If you order seals, then try some silicone spray or lube, or pellgun oil if you have some locally.
Vintage airguns can surprise ya with resilience.

No, CO2 carts don't have any lube in them (http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2007/1/m ... 9270390772#c116956499270390772). That's why adding a drop of Pellgunoil is necessary.

Silicon oil spray is a completely different thing than Pellgunoil. Silicon oil spray is good for green gas airsoft guns but Pellgunoil is appropriate for all CO2 powered guns (airsoft and airguns).

Thanks for the reference on cart lube inclusion.
I am still convinced that all that forming lubrication does not escape the flushing once carts are shaped for capping and filling.
I say this from accounts of sintered filters clogging over time with C02 use.
That said, it is likely not sufficient lubrication for day to day operation (nor appropriate viscosity), so the suggestion for silicone spray was one of availability when new seals were on the way and OP wanted to try something to use the gun in meantime.
