    Perhaps if you could post a picture or two?

    Soak the cylinder in Kroil for a while so you can get the nipples out...I had a used one that was in pretty bad shape that I eventually got 5 out...the other was so bad that I had to drill it and tap it. Installed new nipples with anti-sieze and pull them out and clean and re-anti-sieze each time...no problems now!

    They are really fun guns!!
