I have a Benjamin 397G CO2 rifle that needs to be repaired. I think the seal for the CO2 canister needs replacing. Can anyone recommend someone to repair this in Ontario? Or, can someone provide instruction on how to dismantle the gun so I can replace the seal. Thanks

There are very few people I trust enough to recommend, but Len tops the list out east. Quite certain he can repair it, and more importantly...repair it RIGHT.

Can contact him at the link below where he goes by Leonardj.

Hi and welcome, Gmach!

What is the manufacturing year of your rifle? The phase one rifles (1991 to 1996) seem to have a soldered valve, while the phase two and later (1997-on) seem to have a removable cartridge valve (like the 22xx-series CO2 guns). The phase one G397 will require a special tool to remove the valve nut in order to replace the seals.

You can get an exploded view of your rifle on the Crosman site: https://support.crosman.com/hc/en-us/se ... 3#articles

Two sources for getting parts in Canada: http://store.onlinecamp.com/en/parts/crosman.html and http://www.scopesandammo.com/

Though he doesn't list it on the site, I guess Eric at Scopes&Ammo can get the parts. You can email him, he'll answer back rather quickly. Unfortunately, I don't know anybody I could recommend for the repair work, I usually do my own mods and repairs.

Hope that helps, and good luck :D
