Could you get some pictures of the bodies up, just to get an idea of the condition? Some parts are steel, so I hope the weather didn't get them, for your sake. Otherwise, Bacci still has a lot of VM parts(not seals, last I checked) available.

Also try ron asp at PBsports, I have gotten lots of vm parts from him. They have a ebay store, I usually just contact him through there

Pro team products has some parts as well. They also have the ball detents ("magic fingers") for only $4.00. But definitely check out Bacci's site. Also bodies and barrels on eBay all the time thru ron-asp.
Good luck!!!

Relatively good condition. I'm left to think it is leaking, but it really could be just about anywhere. Only real way is to take it down.

I'll see if I can't do a video of the takedown today. Something for people to use. Haven't been able to find a video takedown.

It will work with HPA, I'm not sure where I'd position the valve. Wasn't able to make the video yet. Gotta clean up the workbench, and for that matter, re-assemble my VM. I don't use a valve tool so it's kinda bad when I try to get the valve out. I'm gonna try and get one cheap before I do anything crazy, but I'll go through the internals at least.

One thing you'll need to understand is the valve is special. It's got 4 settings. The 4 holes on the back end nearest the actual Air source are adjustable. Usually meant to constrict or allow the flow of Co2 depending upon the weather. HPA will be a bit different. I haven't played with it enough to know. However, I ran mildly well on a tank of nitrox for a day. I had some hiccups, times when it leaked a bit, so I shut off the source, then filled it back up and it usually went away. Quick cycle will reveal issues.

Oh. I had no idea about that valve. I got it apart last night. Rings looked good but I replaced what I could with new. I washed everything and dried all the parts. Tonight I will lube everything with some angel grease I have and try to put it all back together. I have a rough schematic of the assembly but I will need to figure out the valve. Hope to air it up tonight.
