Could be a few things mate. Firstly I would give it a full service by replacing all the seals. If the power is still down you may have a reg problem and that too will need a service to check the reg pressure. Neil.

If you (or someone else) have the dimensions for all the Pro Target o-rings, I would appreciate them being posted here.

I would suggest sending it to Air Arms for a full service.

Anyone looking to do it themselves will find information on a strip down on the Air Arms Owners Club site.
Spares - all 'o' rings are available from bgaltd (Julian) on the same site, look on the for sale thread.
I can't help with individual sizes, probably easier to buy a set from Julian and have them posted.

Don't send it to air arms, find someone who knows what they are doing.

The pro target has quite a weak hammer spring, if the reg is set to high the hammer cant knock the firing valve open due to the force acting on the back of it resulting in low power, or if the reg is too low there is insuficient pressure to create the power, the setting of the reg output pressure is quite critical to get full power out of these rifles. I would imagine that you have a failed o ring somewhere resultin in either too high or too low reg pressure, it needs a full service!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
