Default RWS .22 in barrel seal required

The seal located within the barrel LR20 - .22 - where to source one? or a dozen. Does anyone happen to know its dimensions? Similar problem to the DS Wolverine, it requires renewal after every two or three tins of pellets; the seal is scrubbed by the pellet as it is loaded and no longer closes the barrel to probe space. My recently purchased LR20 is in need of a new one.

Is this any help ? http://spares.bagnallandkirkwood.co....seal-kit-copy/
Go to the RWS spares link from the main page, there's an exploded view and parts list. but unfortunately they don't tell you what size the o ring is !!.
They have a contacts page so may be able to help ? Part number FP120.

Thanks Waldo, I did get that far too. It is the size I was hoping for, then to order from a seal company for a fraction of the price. If all else draws a blank, I will get them from Bagnall. Then the trick will be to work out how to fit it!

Thank you Gordon for sourcing AND sending on to me the required seals. It is very easy to get lazy with help like this.
Old seal removed and new one fitted within five minutes. Range testing revealed although the old seal appeared to be in good order using a jeweller's lupe, the new seal has made a difference and accuracy prevails again.

Next task, strip and service the loading bolt mechanism.
