That is a very good video with some great tips! FYI, on the early Buck Jones that use the cup seal, I use a Coleman Lattern primer cup seal. You might have to trim the edge a little but they work great and are cheap. Also, I use a 3/16" rod to determine the length of the air tube. Insert the rod into the shot tube to where it just clears the hole for the BB to enter and mark it with a Sharpie. Assemble the rifle and re insert the rod with the gun in the cocked position. The mark should be in tyhe same position relative to the end of the shot tube. This is the first thing I check on BB guns with feeding issues whether its not feeding or feeding more than 1 BB at a time.

Glad to help. gkenny, where did you find your brass tube material? I would like to look it over. Undertaker comes up with the great tips again, thanks. Ditto to Cobalt for simplifying things. Jay

Well done Matt! Love to see more like that one.

Thanks! I had never worked on one before this and really gained a respect for the engineering behind it. I'll absolutely tackle another if I find one. Right now I am working on an old National brand cap gun, one that used those paper rolls of caps. It's not as involved as an air gun but I cannot wait to smell those caps light off! That will bring back some memories.

 Hi Gumslinger, I found all sorts of metal tubing at Amazon. Most are from China and take forever to arrive but they have almost everything.


Sorry I was so late in letting back to you, regards, gkenny.

 Thank you Matt, I do have some questions: I cannot solder my stainless steel tubing to the plunger head, the tubing just does not want to stick. I am awaiting the brass tubing from China.

Thanks again, great video and restoration!

Regards, gkenny.
