Anyone know the "trick"? 

The grips have some warp but other than that it's very clean. But the seals are in need of replacement- only getting 98 fps and it does the same if I use the stock shot tube or one from a 25. Wanted to try a new 25 tube but the bottom catches on a lip inside the shroud so it won't screw in.

Them things were made as a toy, really. Never meant to be worked on if the seals went. I have heard that some folk had luck grinding off the rivets to break down the gun and replace the seals. Then replace the rivets with a nail peened on both sides. I have "unwarped" the plastic grips by squeezing them together in a padded vice and gently getting them good and hot with a heat gun. Leave in the vice for 24 hours. Careful. Gentle and heat gun are all but mutually exclusive. A hair dryer didn't quite do it, for me though. Good luck.
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Anyone ever try "Screw Post" to replace rivets. I think they come in different metal, Stainless, Brass and Steel
