To replace a piston's spring (main spring) you will need a spring press. In the photo below you will see a spring press I built using a 8 inch C-Clamp. Notice that I cut the end of the C-Clamp and drilled 2 holes in it, to screw it to a 12 inch long, 3x1 inch thick piece of wood. I then screwed the C-Clamp and the board to a 45 inch long, 2x4 with 4, 3 inch screws. I also used a 4 inch piece of on the other end and screwed that down with 4, 4 inch screws, this end holds the point of the barrel. I also placed a 4 inch, 3x1 inch V grooved piece of wood in middle, to secure the air gun to the press. After all was securely screwed down, I painted the spring press with a water based sealant, this will help in cleaning up grease and tar from the spring press.
