Default Little trick's

They will all offer you a good value for money service,the only difference is they will all have their little trick's.
Mr Ostler did an amazing job of setting up my EV mk2 trigger.
As said before,local is a good starting point.
About as much use at field target , as a life guard at the Olympic swimming pool.

Many thanks guys for all your advice and experiences with the named people in question. Highly appreciated.

Unfortunately the only local person I can think off as a starting point would be and is only my Car Mechanic. ....

Therefore I will have to send my rig on a trip to one of the said hero's. I agree with Ratinator that each one does a top job but all have their little tricks which those tricks make them individual and stand out.

However in the meantime will use one of them and experience it for my self.

Admittedly had a firing valve snap about 4 weeks after that which was replaced FOC. Thats a better service than I have had from some garages.

Since that time it has only needed a little tweak downwards on the velocity a year after that as was getting nearer to 780 than my preferred 770fps. Other wise has performed faultlessly, unlike like its owner.

Will be taking my older Ripley to him for a complete service.

Can not comment on any others as not used anyone else.
My mate needs his Ripley serviced where abouts is john based.

John is just off the M1 near Ilkeston. Steve Page put me contact with him.

His telephone number has been on a couple of threads on here asking about him.
