I got a Benjamin 397 with a pooched valve in a package deal. The treads on the Valve Retaining nut are in bad shape and the original springs are missing.
I have a spare cartridge type valve, would it be possible to remove the soldered section of the old valve and re-install the newer type valve?
I do not want to put much time into getting replacement parts for the old valve as the threads inside are likely just as bad as the retaining nut.
