Does the gun shoot a BB, but at a lower speed than normal? If so, before replacing anything, if you haven't oiled the seals already then do that first. There's a few oils you can use below. If the oil doesn't help, then it probably needs at least new seals.

Or, if it does not shoot at all, that can mean there's a blockage in the shot tube (check this first), or it can mean the air tube has broken off- this is a common problem with the early model 25 that use leather seals.

The 25 used both leather and rubber seals, depending on the age. One rule of thumb is, if it has an "Oil Here" hole in the barrel shroud, it uses rubber seals. If it doesn't have an oil hole, that isn't a 100% positive indication of it having leather seals, but the odds are that is what it'll have. Once it's known what type seals it has we can go from there.

Don't use any sprays like WD-40, and household 3-In-One Oil isn't recommended either. I'll add a list of a few oils that will work: 

1. 3-In-One Electric Motor Oil (not the same as “regular” 3-In-One, see photo). Found at Ace, H. Depot, etc.

2. Motor oil. Daisy recommends straight 20w or 30w. Personally I use 5w-20 Mobil 1. Thinner oil preferred over thicker.

3. Crosman Pellgunoil. It would not be my first choice because $4 for 1/4 oz is expensive. Walmart has it in the sporting goods area.
