just like it sounds. is there a way to oil some life back into the seals, and if not how hard is it to replace them?

Ok I will respond.

I do not know.

I suspect the other 75 folks would have had to respond the same way though likely some of those views were repeat views hoping to get an answer for themselves.

Mine won't hold air either now but if I put a pellet (5mm) in it the leaking stops.

There is a "Youtube" video that shows how to replace the valve.

My Dad bought mine (now Daughter's) for me when I was ten. $19.95.

Sheridan "Blue streak." Many a rabbit...grackles...rattlesnakes and a host of other fauna fell to that rifle in the hands of a third grade kid back in the mid-60's.

"is there a way to oil some life back into the seals?"

Nope. Been there, tried that. My 60's blue streak started to leak a little so I tried oiling but used the wrong type which just made it leak faster. An easy to install seal kit made it good as new. If you go that route be sure to only use the correct type of oil to prolong seal life.

Yep it needs a seal set .I got my mine done 25 years ago by calling them and sending it back.

Just be sure that valve will fit your gun. I gather that there are a couple of different types.

I bought a kit and got my Silver Streak up and running again after it started leaking air some years ago.

It's not really a difficult repair, just be very careful not to strip the threads when installing the new valve. It threads into brass and you'll be fighting a spring while you're trying to get it started screwing in.

I've been able to bring many multi pump AGs back to life trying to work a little Crosman PelOil into the them. That oil actually can restore seals and O-rings back to life.

Not sure how the blue streak and 392 compare internally, but mine failed in less than two years and had to be rebuilt.

Here is the thread on my rebuild experience - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=656157

The link I posted in #12 is a photo step by step of a 342 rebuild.

It is now kid approved.
