my rapier is leaking like a sieve (iv just bought it and its been stood almost since new) iv got a full seal kit on the way from chambers.

is it a difficult job doing one of these and is there any hard/tricky bits to look out for when stripping it?

cheers.

its prob main valve seal or valve seat,,but also dry fire it a few times and shoot half a tin of pellets out of it as it may just need to seat the oring on main valve

Thanks cyclone sniper iv tried that but no sucess. Iv stripped it down again. I'll irder a valve stem and seat. How do I get the valve seat out? It looks pretty well hidden in the valve housing -cheers!
