The biggest issue with FO rods has been durability. They do break, easily, this the trend to protecting them more with layers of plastic and so on.

Good morning GTA! Up at 0550 CDST. Iím still deciding what to do today too John. We have a disturbance in the gulf that will bring rain, lots of rain in the next few days. Yesterday was pleasant outside but a bad headache made shooting undesirable.
I hope your headache is better. I also hope some of that rain comes our way.

Speaking of shortagesÖ thereís a refrigerant shortage. They made us buy what we could yesterday. I basically have 2 jugs of everything we use and next week Iím on call. Theyíre talking about R22 may be finally done. And other types trickling in or not having any til July. Itís not like we use refrigerant everyday, so Iím not going to think about it til it becomes a problem. Besides, itíll be the officeís decision, ultimately.
The only time I remember being served coffee in a Dixie Cup, the bottom of the cup dropped out!

Thanks for that. Itís hard to tell about some vendors. I would have bought from the bintacllc site but it is very disorganized and confusing. He really needs a site update.
JG Airguns has the parts sold separately( $12.35 for the brass cap) but you have to send in the old brass cap as they exchange only. They rebuild the old cap. If yours is badly damaged I would let them know the condition before sending it in. It is the only place I know of as the brass cap is no longer made. They sell the quad seals also if you could use just that. If you want a rebuild kit that does not include the brass cap, Mac1 Airguns and Baker Airguns sell the complete rebuild kits for around $30. I got mine from Mac1 which includes a O ringed type replacement for the pump cup which was hard as a rock on my gun.

What size is this "O" ring?
Are/Is the hole in the magazines covers the same size as the outside diameter of the bolts/probes "O" ring?
I had to open mine up a few thousands and deburr the plastic edges on both sides and add a very slight bevel etc,
as that was eating the "O" rings on my Gauntlets mags...........
Made a world of difference on loading etc.

I don't think o-ring wear has as much to do with its location as it does alignment. Example: my Liberty has o-rings on the probe and after thousands of rounds they are still fine. I do keep them lubed which I'm sure helps, but I haven't noticed any air loss around them or change in FPS.

What about a Crosman 2240? I always felt the stock grips felt small, but I have large hands/long fingers?
Plus many custom grips available for reasonable cost.
I get it... just probably won't spend too much time in the woods with these 2 guns. They are more for Betty Lou and I to enjoy plinking games together like we do with many other pairs of pumper we have.Found a suitable trigger return spring and got Betty Lou's trigger done. I did cut the anti decocking nub off of hers. Don't know why... I just did. Next time in I'll find some thin brass washers for the pivot pins. Maybe a trip to the old school hardware later.
