nemrod galeon 1

My uncle gave me a nemrod galeon 1 pneumatic gun. It doesn't seem to hold any pressure. The gun probably hasn't seen water in 30 some years. Are there any simple fixes? Replace O rings etc?

They're easy to work on if you can find the o-rings... but that is tough. I went as far as trying to put an order to a manufacturer (like a custom order for 100) but it didn't work out. If you find a source for good new o-rings please let me know.

Re: nemrod galeon 1

There are tons of places to buy O rings online. You should google it and I am sure you will find exactly what you want. I would first check into what is the best material for the type of application you need, and then for the size. Here is a good site to get started on (I am sure if you search you will find many others). It might be a good idea to call them and find out what is the best material for your application.
