    Me and my son was visiting my grandfather today and as we were getting ready to leave he gives me this FWB that has been put up since the 70's. He did shoot it some in the 70's while stationed in the Azores but has laid dormant in original packaging since. I know I need a new breach seal, what other parts should I order and where should I get them? fGoing to bring this lovely vintage AR back into service. I did run 5 pellets through it just to test function over the chrony. Running about 480fps with 10.3 jsb and the breech seal is junk. I have no problem tinkering with air rifles as I own several PCP's and tuned both PCP and CO2. Airguns.

    Just need someone to get me pointed in the right direction of any other parts I should replace.

    Will not let me post Pic's for some reason?

    Contact Neal Stepp at International Shooters Service.  All you need is a breech seal and a buffer for the end of the piston.  I seriously doubt you will need a mainspring, but Neal has them too.  Air Rifle Headquarters is another source.

    I believe our own Joe Rhea rebuilt dozens of them.

    Joe has put a number of 300s videos on youtube. They are one of the fun rifles to break down. Just be sure (take a pic) of which way that little spring clip(called a locking spring) goes in the back of the action. I will add I don't mess with the trigger group unless something quits working.

    All you need is a breech seal and a bumper. The rest of the gun is metal and new. If you can find directions its and easy job to do. The OEM bumpers crumble and clog up the port. I bought that stuff from Maccarri but not sure whats in stock now. I am sure that stuff is available at Chambers UK.

    Thanks for the help!  Parts arrived today from Maccari. And the gun is shooting smooth. I replaced seal and buffer plus a new main spring.  First 10 shots after rebuild are avg 546fps with 10.3 g. 552 high and 542 low. I am very impressed for a spring gun.
