Slavia 624...

...that's the air rifle I have and I want to know what to do it.

It still works fine but I am sure that for something that was made in the 80's, it has probably lost some of it's punch. This is another gun that came to me by way of my Grand-father and he used to sit on his back porch and take out the squirrels that were playing with my Grand-mother's bird feeders. I can still see it sitting in the corner by the back door.

What are some things that I should look at to put it back into top shape? I'll post some pictures later this evening...

Brain, I belong to the GTA air gun forum and lot of folks over there could help on this one.

Given that vintage, I suspect it may just need a new spring and possibly seals. That vintage air gun probably had leather seals which may have dried out form lack of use after all these years. I've yet to tackle taking a spring piston gun apart, but from my reading over on that forum, spring piston guns are one of the easiest air gun to work on and cheap, too.

Springs are commonly replaced and considered a scheduled maintenance item on this type of gun. Not very expensive, either. Lots of aftermarket springs available, too, plus no need to compress the spring when replacing. Pretty much a drop in item.

One of the big plusses on a spring piston gun is that with a few extra springs and seals, you can keep them running almost forever.

Thanks for the link NCG!

Well here are some shots of it...







That's the good. Here is the bad as I see it so far:

The finish on the wood is dried out and starting to crack. A little fine sandpaper and some oil will take care of that.


Some minor pitting on the barrel. I will most likely let that alone for now.

Not too bad, considering its age. You're right. A little light sanding and some oil will take care of the stock. Try some extra fine steel wool and CLP on the rust. The important thing is that it still shoots. Might surprise you how much life is left in that old shooter.
