Picked up a Smith & Wesson 78g .22 pellet

Don't know much if anything about the CO2 pistols. I have a couple of the Polish WZ. 1970 trainers which are single shot cocking pistols, but that is all the air gun experience I have.
Any and all info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Previous owner said he had it resealed, but was a few years ago, hadn't shot it since.
Was just looking at the bolt, I guess that is what it's called, appears the o-ring is split. Just ordered a kit to replace it and any or all others.

Manic,

Would you please share where you found a rebuild kit?

Just a quick search on EBAY and they popped up. Looks like urethane and standard rubber o-rings are available.

Thanks, I'll take a look.

PS, you'll like it as soon as you get it shooting. They shoot great. You will see a drop off in velocity and grouping just before the cartridge runs out.

Mtn'eer, do you have any recommended pellet to use with this? I started looking around and I was surprised by the variety of options.
Thanks!

Manic,
I wouldn't go overboard on the pellets. Just start with a package of Gamo, Daisy or Crosman standard pellets. See how it shoots then decide if it's worth it to you to spend the money chasing smaller groups.
