My Gamo Compact is asthmatic. Where do I buy a seal kit locally?
I am not in the mood for interminable overseas postal delay occasioned by our
own mail hubs and would like to shoot the pistol before the end of November (this year)
Seal kits are offered in Eurozone but postage is hairy (seal kit about 5 euro with postage at 9 euro).
My hope is that they might just slip through customs in a padded envelope but that was with parts from the USA.
All my stuff from the Eurozone got delayed at the mail hubs except for a small package from Poland.
Will check with Bearing Man here (the valve seal is tiny and will probably break when I remove it).
The leak is from the brass base of the valve unit (bubbles when I put thin oil on it). Having said that, it would be foolish to not replace
the piston seal as the pistol is now almost stripped down (the compression chamber ends are refusing to unscrew and a heat gun may be needed).
Thanks for the piston seal size info.
The pistol is not new so probably all the soft bits need replacing.
To all who replied, thank you.
I had to put the project on ice as my car needs help (bits are being re-furbed at diesel shop now).
While I wait I should update this thread.
Pistol was bought new at NY while they were in Braamfontein in 1992 and has the old valve and rear valve enclosure.
This is not pinned into the compression tube - it screws in.
I will try to add pictures.
