    Xs78 (Damaged?) Hammer Spring

    If you bought it new the spring would be ground flat at both ends, if it broke inside the gun the other part would be inside , I suspect it was cut to lower the power by the previous owner ,

    HW 35 question

    Over the years I have changed a few and never needed a spring press, get the thread moving then put a towel (just in case ) over the trigger block and unscrew it ,

    160 versus qb798

    Hi all, just wanderin, back in the 1970s I read an article about a american shooting rabbits with a crosman 160, at that time co2 was on ticket here, was the 160 as bad as the 78 for low power out the box , I just finished modding mine today waiting now to test it over the chrono,hoping for 40 good shots at around 660 fps with hobby .22 thats around 11.6 ftlb energy, I can't do anymore to it apart from going HPA, so anyone got or had a 160 ? and can they perform ?. just checked over the chrono 662 for 11.68 ftlbs energy , will test a string when the neighbours are not in,

    Hi Chaps, done the same thing and have air leaking from the exhaust valve, I read about your repair , but have a couple questions, firstly where do you get the polythene tube from ? and second is the valve stem hard to get at ? and do you need any special tools ?, would be grateful for any help . regards Dave.
