    JG airguns has some parts and springs. http://www.jgairguns.biz/catalog/index.php?cPath=78_89_158&page=2 If its a coil spring you can usually find a suitable replacement somewhere. I keep a drawer full of springs salvaged from discarded airsoft...

    I had a neighbor who's son had one of these. They are definitely worth investing in a reseal kit. A very nice old gun, that would likely still sell well today despite competition from the Umarex Colts. I've been meaning to get one of the .22 SA6...

    If you are extremely careful you could use a threading tap of the right size to pull out or punch out the broken neck. Just don't let it cut through the brass or otherwise touch the inside of the die.

    Got the Umarex Peacemaker and its a fantastic replica gun. it shoots everything I've put through it with better than expected accuracy but the lack of velocity with lead BBs and pellets is a bit disappointing. Still its a great backyard plinker at...

    Guards at the docks in France during WW1 often carried the Trapdoor Springfield. Due to shortage of more modern rifles some US Artillerymen were still issued the Krag rifles. The M1903 and M1917 rifles were reserved for front line troops. All the...

    They suggest no more than ten pumps but I always use at least twelve. There have been numerous experiments on how many pumps can be used with a bone stock 13XX pistol and most conclude that twelve pumps are the limit of efficiency with the short...

    Since the recent incarnations of the 760 including the rifled barrel assault rifle styled replica guns have a multiple round sliding barrel pellet clip I don't see why they don't at least offer a rifled barrel version of the 760 as optional at a...

    I've used my CO2 revolvers for backyard plinking at 40 degrees. The velocity was within limits so long as I took the pistols inside to warm up between reloads. We've been discussing just this problem on another board and there are several fixes...

    Main disadvantage is temperature sensitivity of CO2 capsules. At temperatures below 70 degrees velocity drops off after every shot unless you let the gun warm up a bit between shots. At much lower temperatures the velocity drop really is noticeable...

    The rifled barrel I ordered from Crosman is one used with their M4 177 and a similar assault rifle styled multipump air gun. Those models use many 760 internal parts. To fit one of these barrels you have to also order the plastic barrel support,...

    This pistols really come into their own when the shoulder stock is mounted. I wasn't impressed by the striking power in .177 so I ordered a OEM 24" .22 barrel, which I found on sale for about 1/3 the regular price, for mine intending to cut it back...

    Well I ran across an insane low price deal on Ebay. Not an auction but a straight sale of a NIB Umarex SAA BB revolver. These were priced at $119.99 on Pyramid Air and that's apparently a mark down as well but I found the exact same gun for $87.99...

    PS I've seen these or a very similar model that had a hollow wooden bolt handle that contained a flat spring that drove the firing pin rather than using a coil spring in the bolt body.

    rmark what gauge shot shell does your Murata take? I've seen a very rusty example hanging on a wall but didn't think to ask if I could examine it. The bore looked like it might have been a 20 gauge but it was so choked with rust I can't be sure.
