Well, was at a local sale and came across an older PGP.....for a couple bucks.....so I now own it. Externally it is in really good shape but the bolt is alittle siezed up....wont pump. Anybody experienced with restoring these things.....since its in great shape I dont really want to beat it up too badly during disassembly. Any advice appreciated.
Also, the serial # is P051405. Anybody have a clue as to when this thing may have been made? Thanks!
Un-siezing a PGP bolt is a bit on the tricky side. Give Crosman Customer Support a call at 18007AIRGUN. Have them patch you through to me (Steve in paintball). I can walk you through it.
While you're on the horn with them, they can research your serial number to get your pgp's born on date.
Thanks Steve, but I managed to get her free today. Used a piece of 1/2" copper pipe placed down the barrel and tapped the end with a hammer.
The internals were in better shape then I expected, being siezed up. I put a total of 2 hours into this and shes rebuilt and back together(minus the valve). I had to lightly scrape some muck off of the bolt, but thats all it more harsh I had to be with it. The barrel bore even looks rather well polished still! Ill post some pics shortly.
I called that number.....they cant track my serial number.
Also.....there was a 12gram still in this thing and it was stuck. I had to pry it out through the front gripframe screw hole. The seal came out with it. Does anybody have a trick as to getting that back in without removing the valve, and also where to get a valve tool if I want one?
Same advice -- call Crosman (we MAKE the PGP) Customer Support. If they can't help you, have them patch you through to me (Steve @ Gameface. We're the paintball division of Crosman.) Putting chamber face seals back into markers without taking out the valve body assembly. I can probably scrounge up another valve tool. My personal one got gaffled at a tournament.
