I am re-sealing my father's old Benjamin 310 and I have run into a snag...
I can not get the Outlet Valve Lock Screw (part #340)to budge.
I purchased the tool and the seal kit from Brian & Associates which comes with a copy of the owners manual as well as separate typed instructions for re-sealing the gun. The tool fits cleanly into place, but I cannot get it to move. I'm worried if I put too much force behind it, I will break the solder holding the barrel in place.
I've tried, soaking the area in WD40 and carefully vising the tube to get more leverage, but no luck so far.
Anyone have any recommendations on getting the lock screw to release?
My next thought was to heat that section carefully to see if that would allow the screw to move. It is seated in a lead seal correct?
Any help/info would be appreciated.
