    I've had a .177 cal Benjamin Air rifle since I was a kid. I took it out the other day and it will not hold air. Can the replacement seals be ordered on line? Has anyone ever rebuild one? It looks to me like two spring pins need to come out to release the piston or did I miss something.

    Thanks for any help.

    Good Morning, You should be able to get an exploded parts diagram online w/o a problem. It's been a long time since I've worked on one but I believe that you are correct about removing the 2 roll pins to get to the seals.

    I somehow think that Benjamin & Sheridan Merged ?...I dunno:roll_eyes:

    Be careful popping the pins, think there is a spring. Been a long time. If it is one of the really older ones, the seals may be leather beleive it or not.
    If they are, soak them in 30W motor oil. But sounds like a worthwhile rebuild project if you have had it as a boy. Wish I still had mine....

    Give these folks a hollar and get a manual, that way you'll at least save a picture frame. lol
