    Default Who can fix my LGV?

    So I have a LGV challenger. I've found that it's barrel lock is not locking properly. When locked/closed it still has a tiny amount of play, approximately 0,5mm up and down. So the wedge lock is not locking up correctly. Who can sort this issue out? Who can I send it to in the new year?

    Thanks.

    Are you sure it's not a bad or missing breech seal?

    edit:
    Did you check for pellet(s) unluckily smashed inside the locking mechanism?

    It seems the two wedges of the locking mechanism are "missground" by a very tiny miniscule amount. So if one gently, just with one finger, pushes down on the latch leaver after closing the barrel, it aligns the two wedges and barrel is locked up solid again. I'm thinking by doing this a few hundred times, they'll eventually wear into alignment and seat properly. I haven't checked the accuracy yet, but I'll keep you guys posted.
