I just bought my daughter a 760 Pumpmaster and it won't pump up.  It's leaking air into the barrel while pumping.  Verified by sticking the muzzle in a glass of water and pumping.  Tried calling the customer service number but they're closed on Sundays.  Am I missing something or is this one a dud?  I figure it must have a problem with a seal somewhere, but I don't want to take it apart since I just took it out of the packaging.

Didn't have that large of a gift card.  I like the cut of your jib though.

I've tried it open and closed.  No dice.

If it's brand new, take the sucker back to the store and get another one off the shelf.  No reason to screw around with it if its DOA.

brand new - just return it.  That said, try cocking it before you pump.  Likewise blow a few shots out of it.  Could be some junk in the valve.  Likewise, if the spring that closes the exhaust of the valve is light (it is not really needed, and ultimately hurts output), the hammer spring can wedge it open if the gun is not cocked first.





Yes, I know the instructions say to pump then cock - that is lawyers talking.





If you are stuck with it, not hard to pull the valve and clean it out - just not worth it if you can exchange it.



You need a punch to remove the roll pin, and you will probably need to make a tool to open the valve (I took some 1x2 and drilled a hole the size of the valve (I put the hole about 2" from the end, with a longer peice solid for a handle).  I split the hole on the short end with a table saw, then put a bolt through the split (so I could tighten the hole a bit.  Put one on each side of the valve - tighten your home made wooden valve clamp - and unscrew the body of the valve to get the gunk out.

Thanks for all the info.  They didn't have another one in stock for exchange (it's the pink one) so I ordered another online and returned it.  Hopefully the next one will work.

I have done several of those in 760's. They were the older metal receiver with brass bolt guns.  Not too hard but it should not be like that out of the boxl

You might try a couple of drops of Pelloil. Could be you just have a dried seal.
