This was about a year ago but they only charged £42 and that included sending it back by courier. I sent it on a Friday and it was all done by the following Tuesday.
They designed and built it and they don't charge a fortune to service it.
Why bother sending it anywhere else?
That is good value really. Its empty of air now but does the cylinder just unscrew from the reg? Mine is a little stubborn
The thing is it is probably a very simple fix, just o'rings as was otherwise performing faultlessly, (well...ish), before the leak. I guess its down to what I can presently afford and whether I believe someone can set it up different and better than air arms and take the trouble to test it for a good time. There's the guy in scotland who did Dorians, think its £75 including return post for a full rebuild, replace all springs and everything, set the reg up and test for a week before returning it. That would be better value than a full service from Air arms, but i'm not sure it needs it at the moment.
Simon how was your PT performing before the leak did you find power a bit wayward , as I have noticed fluctuations in mine over time also I have only been filling to 180 bar where as before I would give it 200 bar with confidence. How have you found it on return? Do they re-set the reg pressure as well?
