Shooting a leaking California Cobra

In this video I try and cycle a leaking California Cobra. I’ve shown this California Cobra in several other articles and videos but never attempted to cycle it until I recorded this video last summer.

It’s leaking from the 12 gram seal which is a standard Crosman item:

Below are breakdown images of the California Cobra, showing that seal and the valve body.
