I picked up this SA6 today at the local pawnshop for $15. I wasn't really expecting it to work but I tried it when I got home, and to my surprise, it does. The trigger is pretty sweet, I must say.
I put about 40 pellets through it and left it while I had supper. When I returned it was empty. The seal kit is $17 so, I think I still did ok on the price. The fact that it worked at all was a bonus.

I checked YT but couldn't find any disassembly vids...was wondering if anyone can help me?

Msit No'kmaq,

Nice! In my opinion you found a great deal, even with a seal kit required.

This service manual should help:http://stevespages.com/pdf/crosman_factory_service_manual_all.pdf


See section 18 starting page 132 for the SA6. Section 17 is the Hahn BB, very similar.

Be careful not to lose the cylinder detent ball. Bit of a pain to reinstall, just be patient with it.


Not a vid, but the "Another Airgun Blog" should help as well: http://anotherairgunblog.blogspot.ca/search/label/crosman%20SA6.

Owner's manual (etc.) here: https://support.crosman.com/hc/en-us/articles/203361824-SA6-Owner-s-Manual-EVP-1959-1969-

Cheers!

If you are waiting on a seal kit, give it a real good treatment with Pellgun oil.
If the leak is at the end seal it might swell that up and help leaks from the CO2 cartridge. This seal is easy to get at, just squeeze some Pellgun oil directly onto it.

If the oil gets down and in to the valve seal, it might help with a slow leak there as well. Does the CO2 leak out the barrel? That would be the valve seal.
I have had surprisingly good luck just flipping these. If you do try this, give it a good soak in the oil while you have access to it. Also have a good look at the brass valve seat for any nicks or dings.

Another great rebuild article: https://worap.blog/2016/11/06/technical-article-refurbishing-and-repairing-a-crosman-44-peacemaker/

If you are getting 40 shots per CO2, you are doing quite well. It may just be the CO2 was empty.
35 good shots reported here: https://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2005/07/crosmans-single-action-six-another-blast-from-the-past/

Cheers!

Thanks for the info...I'm not exactly sure where the air was leaking from...it was hissing quite loudly and when I fired it the co2 shot out from around the cylinder...
