"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.
