average life of seals
« on: February 18, 2011, 04:08:09 AM »
              im rather new to air guns and was wondering how long seals normally last.  bought a brand new 1377 less than a year ago and after sitting in a drawer for most of the winter it doesn't build up pressure anymore. hardly any resistance when i pump.  any advice?

W-E-L-C-O-M-E!

I have had similar issues with 'resting' guns. As Ray said some lube normally helps if not you could strip it down and put it back again. Sometimes it just needs some movement and tightening. A few shots and it should build back up, if not new o-rings.

Cheers  :-*

Just thought I'd add about the seals thing and resting guns. Sometimes the O-rings can warp if something is pushing/squashing them. When left to rest they can retain this shape for a while after so sometimes just moving what parts you can and letting them re-rest will reverse the issue.  :-*
