Default Original 75 re-seal help...

Hi folks. Just aquired an Original 75. It's in good shape apart from the fact that it's been in store for a number of years. Consequently the cork piston seals have perished. I think I've located the correct spares. Problem now is finding someone capable of fitting the new seals and giving the rifle a full service. I believe the mechanism is very complex.

Do any of you folks know anyone shop gunsmith or private who would be able to carry out the work?

Any help much appreciated...

I own, shoot and rebuild Original/Diana Mod 75's and luckily you aren't that far from me, I'm in Swindon.
I'm airgunsmith to The Airgun Clinic but also take on work privately. I use my mod 75 every week in the Swindon 7yds League (paper version of bell target).
I keep a small stock of parts for these guns as well as servicing them so gimme a pm and we can sort out what you need.
medal, medal, medal...
