3357 question

I finally got my revolver off ebay. it was in nice condition but there was only one minor problem with it. it doesn't lock properly.. it's probably missing a spring for the lock that holds the barrel in place.

Can I get parts from Crosman.. and is it easy to replace by myself or should I turn to a painball store for service?

That is the most common problem w/ those guns.

In a pinch...I use a screwdriver to push up the catch into the reciever to lock it.

I believe Crossman does sell that part, it is easy to repair yourself.

Best of luck,
Roland

Thanx.. I did try to push it up with a screwdriver but it locks for one or max two shots before it gets loose. Other than that it seems ok, and the cylinder alignment also seems good.

I always dug that old part out and replaced it with a small spring to lock the two parts together.

Hope that helps.

The stock spring for the lock that holds the barrel in place is wretched piece of rubber. I have problems with mine too. I have replacet it with small spiral spring - works perfectly.

Unless those rubber pieces are brand new, they dont last long. What your experiencing is erectile disfunction with your 3357. Its a common problem, but you can fix it with a compression spring.

I found a Crossman repair center that has parts for the 3357’s. His name is Tom and you can send him an email to him phantymwulf@juno.com .
I just ordered parts from him and the price was as follows. Plastic insert to hold up the hook for the breach $1, Breach Hooks $3, Grips $8, and Cylinders $12
