    Default Gamo Compact - seal kit needed

    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)

    Usually the seals are normal o-rings that you can get from many seal or bearing suppliers. Just take the old ones out and take with as a sample.

    Thanks Cor,
    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).

    In the compact you have o-rings in the trigger assembly but you will need to change the piston seal in your compression chamber it takes the standard 25mm gamo piston seal

    Hello Rob1,
    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.

    I know that Nicholas Yale used to carry all the spares. but you would still have to order via a dealer.

    Please do not use heat on the compression tube, remove the tube from the gun and you'll se the retaining pin which you need to remove to open it. Or just call me on0761858506. I am a fully accredited gamo air gun smith amonst others

    Default Update of GAMO Compact leaks

    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.
