It's a considerable amount of knowledge and skill these days to be a competent gunsmith that can work on a range of pcp's. When I worked in a shop donkeys years ago, the pcp's were rare enough that they would be returned with no problem, but springers could be done in house... now pcp's are more prevailent, and more technical/fiddly, they are placing more demands.
How many importers carry gunsmiths? AT I know makes life harder, especially for the shop that might have been able to fix a simple problem.
