Slide bumpers can be cork, felts, rubber O-rings, or even springs (generally on Conn and King large bores).

Votaw Tool of Missouri stocks them and ships internationally.

You can make a tool to remove old bumpers out of a piece of tubing that you raise a burr to grab the old bumper.

Is the old bumper compressed?  Missing?  How to tell: if you engage the slide lock there is a lot of play in the slide.  But make sure that the slide lock is not loose.  Generally turn to tight, then back off about one turn.

Thanks Tom. I don't mind doing it myself but I was wondering about the tool needed for the job and how thick should be the felt, and is cork a possibility?

I would not use cork for that. An O-ring of the right size does the job, but it could be thicker than felt so you need to check that your slide lock still works.

When the slide lock is on there is about 3mm gap. The slide lock is not loose. I cannot really see if the old bumpers are missing or completely worn out, I will try to find a piece of tubing

Many thanks

Tom, from what I could gather from portuguese customs, 3,2% of custom tax plus 23% VAT. I will see. Still I find surprising that they tax on item price + shipping...might be just me seeing them greedy!
StephenKerry, Vegasbound, I have friends in UK who were looking for me...nothing much at least in my budget. Concerning shipping outside UK (or US), I have encounter both type of seller, the one willing to ship and the one just wanted to sell national...well, they probably both have their reasons

Apparently Santa thought I was a good guy this year, a very good friend of mine is in Vancouver at the moment and he found a King 606 from 1986, in hard case, without major dent in it and from war the seller said, it just need some slide O mix as it was stored for quite some time. Price seems really low, but the seller said that he wanted someone to enjoy it...we will see, I'm still believing in human nature.
It's coming with a 12C mouth piece, I will see if I change this as I'm quite a big person, but I'm already chuffed (but keeping my finger cross and hoping that it is as good as the seller said)

Thanks again for all the answer and info...no it is time to wait...
