i just bought a BSA 240 Magnum from the bbs, nice gun nice condition, one problem the breach seal is shot to pieces (literally):(, and am only getting half power if that because there is a big gap in the seal. My question is where can i get a new one, can anyone help as i cannot find one anywhere.

..Best would be to contact the BSA factory in Birmingham , ask to get thru to the Stores Manager ...that should do it .
Or you could make your own if handy - thick leather ( from a shoe repairer or craft worker ) cut with a punch and scalpel to trim .

have you tried chambers ?

Looked on chambers website, and those three ugly words - Out Of Stock:(. are there any other sellers out there where i may get one from. Also it says MK2 breach seal on chambers, whats the difference between MK1 and MK2 breach seals and how do i tell which pistol i have:confused:

I think Mk. I had an O-ring and a Mk.II had a more elaborate affair held in place by a small screw in the centre......

You can get the seals from John Knibbs, the early ones had a soft rubber disc shaped seal while the later ones had an o-ring in conjunction with a plastic washer. Both types were held in place by a small countersunk headed hex screw, the later o-ring-plus-washer style fits all of the pistols and is a good upgrade as it's harder wearing.
I am pretty sure that's the case.
