Crosman 760 Rebuild Reseal Kit

If you have a Crosman 760 Pumpmaster that doesn’t hold pressure or leaks while pumping then you could just rebuild it instead of replacing it. It’s quite a bit cheaper ($10) than a new air rifle.

The Crosman 760 Pumpmaster Reseal/Rebuild kit includes the following items:

  1. check valve(#1322-056)
  2. valve stem assembly(#1322A011)
  3. pump head cup(#760-140)
  4. Inner and outer valve body o-rings(#130-034, #130-035)
  5. exhaust port seal(#130-036)

**** This kit will not work with pre 75 Crosman 760 air rifles.

Here’s a link where you can buy this kit…Crosman 760 Pumpmaster Reseal/Rebuild Kit at


Are BSA Air Rifles Any Good?

BSA air rifles are a new name to me. I’ve always been familiar with Crosman, Gamo, Umarex, Benjamin, Beeman, Daisy, etc… but not BSA.

When someone mentions BSA, I think of rifle scopes.

BSA apparently makes some really nice, high end air rifles. BSA air rifles are made in the United Kingdom. Prices range from $150-$1200.

Anyway, here is a video describing the rifled barrels that are used in BSA Air Rifles. If you’re interested in how air rifle barrels are made, you’ll love this video. It’s quite interesting.
