I need seals

First time poster to your forum so please be gentle with me

Recently I bought a Brass Eagle Nightmare Competition Short Barrel at a garage sale for $3

I tore it down, cleaned it and replaced a couple of seals with simple o rings but they aren't holding up well. Sure it shoots (what a blast!) but the seals are failing, CO2 escaping.

The piercing seal seems okay but there are two square O ring seals within the upper tube that are bad. Does anybody know where I can get a seal kit for this gun? I'm thinking that maybe it uses Crosman 2240 seals since it appears to already have several 2240/1377 components.

I watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to dismantle it.
Apparently I should have used some lube when reassembling it, maybe mineral oil?

I'm not thinking of selling it, it's too much fun to shoot it from the hip.
My garage now has two unintentional blue colored splats from some shooting this afternoon

Does anybody know of an online parts breakdown for this gun?
I've looked but I can't find much.

Where? To Canada?
I'm already here. I live in NB right above Maine.

I'm going to measure the exact dimensions for my seals and see if I can order them.

So Brass Eagle didn't use Crosman parts off the shelf?

I have:
New factory 12g pierce seals
New factory seal that goes in the brass cup in the valve
New factory valve "magic o-ring" (small one that goes on the stem in the valve)

The rest you can use off the shelf Buna ones.

The seals I made is the hard plastic seal of the valve that sits in the brass nut.

My gun seems to shoot fine. The Chrony numbers are good but the two o-rings in the upper tube are leaking. The gun won't hold CO2.

Again, the next time I dismantle it to replace the o-rings I'll use a rubber friendly lubricant.

maybe some KY jelly...
