I have a Crosman Phantom and I was wondering how do you deburr and smooth out all the sharp edges inside the tube where the cocking arm rides .How do you get IN there and with what.I wasted 2 brand new seals this morning so I put the old one back in....which is NOW in better shape than the new ones.

You would need a round file or sanding paper high grits. (400, 600, 1000, etc)

I used a wood dowel and taped the sand paper.
But i round file will do the job by just grind it from inside out on all edges

I use a Ruby Nail file which I believe is ceramic. Ebay for a few $.
I also use a Dremel with a diamond bit, and make "bits" from a bamboo skewer with good wet/dry sandpaper on it. I have pix of that stick dealie if you want, which I also use to sand the transfer port smooth, sand the inside of the piston, spring, receiver tube, and misc parts :)

I sand all edges with 400 sandpaper and keep turning the piston as you push it in and the seals will spin past the edges, just do it slow and easy.

Try soaking the seal in hot water to soften it up a bit. Helped me.
