Hammershot replacement seal

I got a replacement seal with the omw kit which is great! But what else can be used for failing seals?

Craft foam or some type of foam. I used some foam christmas trees from poundland.

Are these reliable ?

I've used a neoprene type foam and silicone sheet stamped out and with good results. The silicone being the most hardwearing. If you rotate the chamber with the hammer cocked you put a lot less strain on the seal and it will last longer. Might make up a few and get them on the trade page.

That would be great I'd take at least 6

I've been modding an old hammershot I picked up as part of a job lot, and the black foam seal was pretty much shot on it. I ripped it off, skimmed off the glue residue with some WD40 and a sharp knife, then cut a very thin ring of foam off a mega dart and used this to create a new foam seal; superglued in place. Fits perfectly!

I had to trim fractions of a mil off once it was stuck down, to get a good balance between air seal and friction against the back of the turret (I had thought about a bit of grease here, but given that the rest of the turret is exposed as it turns, it risks the grease residue picking up dust and grit).
