My neighbor gave me an old Benjamin ,Benjamin Franklin 22 cal. air gun. Its in pretty good shape,walnut stock,but no rear sights. Problem with it is it does not hold air. He had some air gun valve oil that he tried to get it to work but to no avail. I assume the piston it dried out. Any suggestions? Thank you

You can order a valve replacement kit and maybe a sight from Pyramid air or have it rebuilt by Mac1 or others.
They're good guns and aren't hard to swap valves on.
The guys will be along shortly to direct you a bit more, Good Luck!
