Hello everyone! Just a few questions regarding replacing the spring on the first airgun i've ever owned about 12 years old my Crossman 795. Pretty basic cheap gun nothing spectacular but has sentimental value to me. I'm checking out http://vortekproducts.com/ourstore/airgun%20Springs/Air-Gun-Springs?product_id=209&limit=100 and wondering if a 148 Wire Spring 905 OD could be put into it? If so how many coils and if not what else would?

I've no idea what a Crosman 795 is equivalent to.

Is it a PAL rated gun? Is it like a Quest/Vantage/Optimus break barrel springer? If it is, then likely a spring from one of those would work.

If you remove the spring and measure it (wire thickness, outside diameter, number of coils, overall length) you can probably get a recommendation from someone on the forum.

PS: It would be good to go to the "Introduce Yourself" page, and tell a little about yourself.

Never had a 795. From what I remember it's made mostly of plastic isn't it?
A few people have asked this question before. If the gun has sentimental value for you, set it aside as is, and buy a new gun. I don't think you will gain too much power without eventually breaking it.
For the cost of a Phantom, Vantage, or whatever else they are calling the B19 platform, you will be much happier. They offer many options for cheap parts, and abundance of free knowledge here and elsewhere on the interwebs. One of those suggested, or many other options like the Ruger Airhawk will be way better out of the box than anything you can do to your 795.
