Agree with everything said, it's all easily fixable but why should you have to. I am sure Crosman will take care of it. Ask them to send you a Postage paid box.
If you are going to do mods, or install a new valve you still want the original valve to operate correctly for your next project. Or if you have the necessary tools and the inclination you may want to mod the valve yourself.
Once you tear into one of these you will see just how simple they are to work on.
