Needs new sac.  And I have always found that scrapping with a somewhat dull knife is the best way to get the old sac off the nipple.

Well, go slow.  It may well be just an image artifact but your first picture seems to show some hairline cracks right at the end of the body.  They need to be addressed if there.

There's usually some gunk on the section threads, kind of a rubbery glue.

Test the barrel suction with your finger .... You may need a new o-ring. If you have a cracked barrel we can probably supply a replacement, so PM me if you are in need.
