After replacing my mainspring to increase fps, about 1000 shots later I now have deep grooves inside combustion chamber from the bear trap lever rubbing so hard from cocking. I have to order a new combustion chamber- $30 and new bear trap lever $4. I have no idea how to remove the lever. If someone could help would be appreciated.

When I cock the gun the bear trap lever will skip right over the piston

A bit unusual but it does happen. NO need to buy any parts, this is totally fixable! Maybe a new main seal if it was damaged, but even those are often fixable. Don't have time to get into details at the moment, but I will get back to you on how to fix it.
Do you have basic tools, like a drill, sandpaper, duct tape etc? Do you have a Dremel, grinder or any kind of sander?
Meanwhile write me at chevota at hotmail and I'll send an info packet which will make things a lot easier to explain and understand. Unless you already have it? Hard for me to keep track...

Picture with 50 words, maybe worth 100 words...
Hone the compression chamber, use some Honda 70% moly, replace main seal, get a U shaped plastic shim for cocking lever, and you're good to go again.

Didn't know that about the grease. My bad I bought Molly grease heard it in a video wasn't sure what kind exactly to get.

As for the plastic clip that was lost recently but even with that clip it was rubbing which is because it was worn down slightly, I do need to make a new one pretty sure I can figure something out for that by the time it's fixed.
Thanks
