Figure this is a good place to ask this question. I've recently aquired a couple pre 2K sheridan springed cockers (all origional) and I want to keep them that way. I've got them all broken down and cleaned up. next step - re- assembly. to do this I need the proper o-rings. cocker O-ring kits are a mess! and none of them seem to fit anything so heres the Q's.
Someone care to give an O-ring Primer? the hardware store lists by ID, OD and thickness - usually Metric, always black and almost never the right ones. then i hear things on the field like "oh thats a number 14" and everypbody has a different opinion on what to replace them with - neoprene, silicone - how many are there?! this could really be helpfull - to me at least
Model specific. anybody have a proper list for that particular cocker? even better - a good O-ring source for them? Is it better to replace stuff with the black ones instead of the clear/yellowy ones? some people seem to think so..
I see big kits for sale with a full range of rings, - (all black) is one of these worth it - WGP must have used standard available rings I just can't ever seem to find them!

You can get orings by size at pneumatic, hydraulic suppliers, welding supply stores. basically any shop that deals in pressurized products will have an oring selection. They can size them for you too.
I have been tempted to buy an oring set at Princess auto when they come on sale, but have never actually gotten around to it. Mcmaster has some sets, but you would need to get your sized to find out which ones you can actually use, since you can't just compare them first hand by mail order.

There are a few guns out there that really need the urethanes--like the AKA markers--but most do just fine with buna's.
