Crosman 2200 - Valve Opening

I just purchased an old 2200. Rifle looks to be in good shape, but won't pump. I disassembled and everything looks to be in place. Removed the valve, but cannot open the valve. Looks like someone has been there before me, the flange is a little buggered, but not too bad. I have had this problem before on a 766 of the same vintage. I ended up destroying the valve inlet cone getting it off and replaced with a new aluminum one, I'd like to avoid that on this one. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks in advance.

I use er32 collets to open them and er40 for the 22xx valves
try warming with a hot air gun as some people feel the need to Loctite them and crosman does this on some valves but not others

That seems like

a good way to go, but I don't have any collets or a lathe to hold them. I'll have to dumb it down a little from that.

I use ER40 collets and my lathe also but before I got my lathe I would wrap the body in a strip of leather and clamp onto it with vise grips or pliers. To take off the cap I drilled a piece of scrap hardwood to 5/8" and cut a slot from one side. A "C" clamp tightened down and some heat and they come off pretty good. Best to use a tight grained wood like maple.

I flat top all my valves now.

Rubber gasket material....

...wrapped around front secured with a hose clamp. Gives some meat to thread it off without destroying it.

Got it apart

May 17 2017, 3:31 PM 

using the wood clamp idea, but I had to use 6d nails to fit in the valve cone flange to hold it tighter. Cleaned and put back together, pushed back in the pump tube, installed the pump lever - it seemed to work fine, and held air. Upon full assembly of the rifle though, I have air through the barrel. Ugh, one step forward one step back.

Good to hear you got the valve apart.....

I took an old one apart yesterday and I had to heat it with a propane torch before it would yield.

Try cocking the gun and see if you can build pressure.
