picked up a Crosman 130
« on: August 15, 2012, 06:24:51 PM »
last week i was browsing craigslist for random air guns and this guy had one on his barter list. he was looking for small engines for his own use and i had a few to trade. after playing email and phone tag we finally traded our items today. I wasnt expecting much from this gun for its 50+ years old . he said it didnt hold air well but when i pumped her up she shot fine. its in fair condition but ill soon fix that right up. im gunna do a complete tear down and rebuild it. if some of you can direct me to the right site for all the seals or should i just goto Harbor Freight?  what would i need to increase fps? new valve? better probe?

That could be a nice pistol with a complete overhaul. If you have the tools and parts diagram, a reseal is pretty easy. I usually order my seal kits from Smith Airgun Repair, Bryan & Associates or Mac1. Don't cheap out on the reseal parts.

If you need replacement parts, JG Airguns has the most extensive (and expensive) selection in the country.

i would check with rick he has very reasonable prices and shipping is a flat rate $4
some of these other vendors want $12 to ship a 14 gram package plus the price of the part

+1 for Rick Willnecker
He is a great guy to talk to if you have questions too.
I believe that 130 is a self cocker and you will probably need a quad seal in addition the the usual o-rings

just finished with tearing it down and cleaning everything up. all the o rings was shot 2 of them was as hard as plastic. all i need is to get some new o rings. later on i will re blue the whole gun. for now im just wanting to get it to hold air. also need to replace sight screw for it was locked in by rust. when i opened the valve the spring had a little rust but cleaned up very well.

heres an update pic;

got the new seals today and put it all back together. this is an excellent pistol. pumped it  up and let it sit for few hrs to see if it was going to leak. NO LEAKS!!!!:)  i replaced all o rings and polished the trigger and pump tube.  i can hit soda can at 20 yards every time. wish i had a crono to see how it shots ,feels really good and sounds like around 450-500 maybe more. sry didnt have time for pics but will  get them posted tomorrow. only thing i need now is new grips. im trying to find some wooden ones like whats on the 1st variant. if anyone has any and has no use for them send me a pm.

I can set you up with 130 Kit
« Reply #9 on: August 22, 2012, 10:34:58 AM »
call the Mac1 shop at 310-327-3582. I've got a complete kit for the 130 of upgraded seals and an oring piston head. The 130 dumps all of its air regardless of the number of pumps BUT the lever is wimpy so you do not want to destroy what you cannot source and the 130 lever is the weak link you will be hard pressed to find any replacements. This makes it less of a user gun and certainly not one you should push over the edge.
