Question about Crosman Optics

1 Answer

I have a crosman 1600 air pistol. It has sat for about 10 years. When I put a new cartridge in, all of the co2 escapes right out. Can I replace the seals myself or should I take it to some one with experience.

I just finished replacing mine it was easy. Use a small screwdriver in the slot and tap it in a circular motion until it loosen then it will come out easily. Go to the hardware store and buy a blue .5" maybe it's 17/32" X .125" thick. remove the old washer, the puncture pin, and the screen. Clean all of the parts with alcohol. Reassemble in reverse order and tighten the brass locking "screw" securely. It's a bit of work screwing it back in so be carefull not to round off either of the slots. I used a standard 1/4" and .125" screwdriver like it was a lever to spin it around. The smaller screwdriver at first the the lager one to get it tight. It may take pliers to tighten the new cartridge in mine did. Instead of doing it as I did and tighten the H__l out of it tighten and test in small incraments. Testing after each one. This does work and the seal are readily available in the plumbing section of good hardware stores. Happy Hunting

SOURCE: i have a crOsman model 1077 that wont take a CO2

Probably not by you, but by the shop, maybe. It sounds like the needle was bent and lost it's seal. Crosman has repair stations, if they don't fix it, they will send you another one. I have sent them guns before and got brand new ones instead of the old piece of junk I sent them for repair. They also bought out Sheridan/ Benjamin line of Air rifles, And they repair all those too. I sent them an ancient rifle, an old Benjamin Franklin,17 cal. bare bones stock and barrel only, they sent me back a total refurbish, welded, painted, new .22 cal.barrel, all new guts, unbelievable. I think the total cost was $35 on that one. They wanted $15 for paint, I told them I didn't want it painted, they said, OK, Get a hold of them. Hope this helps.
