rapier full seal change

The model which started it all. Also known as Webley FX2000 and RWS Exalibre. FX Tarantula and FX Timber Wolf seem to be similar rifles, as is the FX Rapier.

rapier full seal change

Postby archie123 on Thu Oct 08, 2015 7:12 pm

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
