It leaks as soon as co2 is pierced. Is there a kit or easy way to go about this? I got it cheap and don't want to spend unneccessarily. Also should this thing be shooting 400fps range like most co2? How old? anyone know?

buy a reseal kit from abairguns .com or bryanandassociates.com. I think you can get one for a reasonable price. Sounds like you have a bad valve stem. I don't know a lot about the 1600, but if you want to find out how old it is, go to crosman.com and find the link that says "date of manufacture".

It's the same gun as yours, only with adjustable sights. There's a synthetic, donut shaped seal, sits around the piercing unit. That's what you need. It's similar, if not identical to the 38-128 end seal that's used on the 38 series guns (don't have a list handy for the 1600 right now, but I can find out).

It's held in place with a threaded fitting that's not hard to remove. These guns will usually shoot in the mid 300s for M.V.

Have you tried Crosman for a parts/price list?

If so, then the outlet seal is bad. If not, then it's likely leaking at the piercing unit. I was in a hurry when I posted earlier.
