The center rubber seal on that cylinder does looks all gummed up & falling apart-as they often do. Crosman made cylinders without the rubber seal-with a hard plastic center which are better.

errr, you're talking about the prior version of the cylinder... the one with no ball detent at all...

Here is a pic comparing both versions:


Left is the "newer" version, with ball detent, and right is the "early" version, without anything.

We all know what happens when there's no ball detent... ball falls off!
Therefore, these are not better, IMHO.

Anyway, what you describe is the usual pain in the a$$ about these detents: after a few years, and especially if exposed to direct sunlight or heat source, these rubber things tends to become gooey and must be replaced.

Good news is that it's possible (thanks Acrewofone).

I had to pay twice the price to get those parts shipped overseas, but it works like charm!
The hardest part is to remove the old, gooey, messy, slimy old detent without getting your fingers all black and sticky.

(And that ebay still won't allow me to get those spares )

There actually is a ball detent in the sold plastic cylinders, down near the base of the ball hole, there is a long plastic raised ridge built into the side of the hole. But in the right cylinder in the above post, it's gone because the hole was drilled out to .62 diameter.

Good call. You can tell the holes are larger. I use to have a 3357 bored out to a .62cal which looked exactly like that. But I never had any problems with .50cal paintballs "rolling out" of any of my solid plastic cylinders in my normal 3357s before though.

The cylinder on eBay sold for $20.50. I don't expect it will work very well though since the plastic seal is trashed.

Yes, I'm going to replace that roached ball detent (wait, did I just let the cat out of the bag?)

oh my! Acrewofone was right, there is indeed some sort of "lip"...
The cylinder I checked was such in a bad shape I had to take a magnifier to see it (maybe an aborted attempt to re-bore it).

my bad...
