    "Indian" bb gun, made in Japan.
    I picked up this old air rifle today at a garage sale along with a very nice Remington 511 .22 cal rifle.
    The air rifle had a couple of bb's stuck in the barrel.
    I took it apart and cleaned every thing up and soaked the leather washers in oil to soften them.
    I get very little air pressure when fired. It wont push out a pellet or a bb.
    If you cock it and fire it (the pellet doesn't move) but you get a hiss of compressed air when you break it open.
    Bore was very smooth inside the compression chamber.
    Can you make your own leather washers?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try McMaster Carr.


    I can't speak for their leather washers, but McMaster is a very straight forward, stable, old school hardware store kind of business.
