They are definitely fun to shoot. I regret selling my (non-leaky) LB. 12g efficiency isn't too great, with the 12g located above the valve and the heavy bouncy hammer. I was told by GP that lightening the hammer would greatly increase efficiency.

i've had 3, 2 brass lb's and an aluminum sb, i agree with hurtcow that a lightened hammer is a good idea, all 3 of mine are/were shooting hot anyway. rebuilt one recently using spare seals for my 3357's, no problems holding air (at least for overnight) after 'polishing out' a gouge in the valve tube, a fun gat but not a primary for me. 'hammer bounce' a bit worse than a kp, and they're roughly the same length when both are 'fully stocked'

sold the other two, down to this one, did a d/f patch before rebuild:



d/f cutting seems to be a common issue with lb's, just as it is with stock class kp's. valve seals are the same as a crosman 357's (cup seal, power tube o-ring, and 12 gram seal) and the rest are o-rings... as mad said, it looks like crosman isn't supporting the 357 line anymore so seals are getting scarce...

Seals aren't a problem. Hi.

That patched LB looks nice. I have a LB body that was D/F'd too. And not very well neither. Still is a project I'm slowly building, making the parts randomly when it gets back to my mind. Just like I don't stop in here often enough. :/

Are you implying you have excess seals?

I can make those Cobra / Nightmare valve seals. I've made some in the past, for me and for a couple guys on here. They seem to do the job. Made some from teflon and some from another plastic.

So I guess, if someone would need some seals for their Nightmare or Cobra valve, I could help fix the problem.

depends on how much hammer bounce they have . . . when mine was brand new it had a lot of hammer bounce and my friends nicknamed it the fartmaster

a little bit of hammer bounce on this one, but it has a heavy mainspring so it's shooting a bit hot:
