Response to Does your valve look like the one in the parts diagram?

yes the valve looks like that, but does have a ball bearing looking thing in the rear part of the valve. No flat sides on stem. I was tempted to solder that hole up before assembling. Im not really into taking pictures or I think of it after. Other than the lake of FPS it shoot great. I have found 2 pellets it really likes of the rest with the williams peep sight it shoots 8 grain poly mags in the 1/2 to 7/8 groups size along with some beeman wad cutters. It will shoot consistant 1/2 groups of the rest @ 25 yards with 5 to 8 pumps if I take the time to weigh out the pellets and inspect the skerts.

This gun was bought new buy the privious owner. He claims it just stopped pumping up one day. Claimed it was never apart ????? He had left it the corner of his garage since about 2002ish It was covered in a dusty crudy film, not so much of a whisp of pump...I had never seen a 397 or 392 but when I seen the brass barrel I had a feeling it could be saved....
