I picked this up at the George Brown Show in Houston recently.
Crosman single action .22 caliber with a full, original tin of period correct pellets. (pells) :) Couldn't pass it up since I got one for Christmas in 1961 when I was nine.
Ordered orings off of Ebay, but they were incorrect. Does anyone know of someone that repairs these close to Houston?

Nice find. Never knew they made those.

Try a local hydraulics shop; they typically have scads of O-rings..

I have one of those Harbor Freight o-ring selection boxes, but this is a special application. :(

Get a pack of CO2 cartridges and a tube of Crosman "Pellgunoil". Put a drop right on the tip of the cartridge and put it into you gun. Dry fire it. You'll probably start loosing pressure but keep firing it until all the pressure is gone. Wait a day or so and do it again with another drop of oil. It might take a few days for the oil reaches everything and starts sealing up. It is worth a try.

I have brought dozens of CO2 air guns back to life with the above treatment. It is a low cost fix and worth a try before you send it off for the big $ repair.

The "Pellgunoil" is amazing stuff for AGs. It is the oil lube I know of that really does condition O-rings and seals. It will not repair totally dried out and cracking O-rings. It will restore and soften up hard ones.

I hope it helps. Looks like you have a real nice there.

I found an o ring that will hold pressure, but the power is way down from what it should be.
I will try your suggestion on the pellgun oil. Thanks.
