Response to Benefits of leather seals in B3-X rifles?
If you talking leather piston seals,(the older guns) I prefer them. They can always be freshened up with a couple drops of oil(they swell)
I even downloaded instructions from somewhere to make my own.
I had a little Slavia 618 that had a leather piston seal; it had gotten pretty chewed up as the young owner had cut up tacks to shoot through it. Found a bunch embedded in the seal.
Made a new one and it worked like a charm.
Synthetic can become blown, and have to be replaced.
