I dug out my old 357 (1980's with 8" barrel) which has been in pieces for some years. I had taken it apart to see about fixing the seals/valve, but a few little plastic pieces were broken and a spring (from the forward end of the valve) went missing. So I had bagged all the parts and set it aside.

Now I'm wondering if the various parts might even be available (if I can even identify what I need), or if a nearby airgunsmith could bring it back to life? If that's even worthwhile. Or perhaps it would just be simpler and more cost effective to just buy a refurbished one and swap in my old 8" barrel? (especially since I don't really know what I'm doing inside of darn thing anyway).

Thoughts? Any ag-smiths in the Winnipeg area?

cheers,
andrew

357 Parts Diagram
Some parts may be difficult to source, but that should help you put it back together. . . .
There's a service shop in Stonewall that a couple of guys have reported good experiences with.
Good Luck!

Thanks Doc, I had seen that as well. I decided to drop it off with Rob at R&R Airgun Repair near Stonewall. Picked it up yesterday and it is a nicely functioning airgun once again. Now, if only I could find the time to get out of town for another shoot ...

cheers,
andrew
