Sometimes parts availability on these old guns can be expensive, curious if you guys fab a lot of your own parts? I've recently undertaken Co2 seal fabrication, and it's pretty rewarding making your own parts to bring a gun back to life. I've punched out various face seals out of urethane sheet and brought back a few of them. O ring sizes seem to be the next hurdleConfused

I haven't yet, but I know there are folks who make their own plunger and barrel/abutment seals for the lever BB guns. Sellers on fleabay want an arm and a leg for them when all they are is a simple leather disc w/a hole in it.

. Too bad they couldn't be made on a 3-D printer. I know they can make some real gun parts on them.

There's a member at Gateway to Airguns forum who makes front sights (types like the Daisy 880 and Crosman 2240 that slip into or over the barrel shroud, others on request), LDC's aka silencers, and other things on request depending on what it is.
