    Default Fix the leaks, or sell and buy new

    I want to service my 2 PCP rifles to fix air leaks. On the one rifle the air leak is out of the charging port. Is this a job that I can do myself since you do not have to strip the whole rifle, or should these repairs be left to the professionals?

    Another option is to sell both in it's current condition and buy a new rifle? I just feel to send two rifles, pay for shipping twice, while it's in my mind to sell them anyway later seems wrong. Will selling them as is make me loose to much? Taking into account the price to fix them and paying for shipping twice is a fair amount all ready. I do not have the luxury to drop them at a repair shop as I do not know of anyone working on PCP rifles in Bloemfontein.

    Shipping via courier to a Smith in Johannesburg or Cape Town is really not that expensive.

    Selling a defective rifle is probably going to be tough but I guess it depends on the rifle and (potential) demand. Which of your guns are leaking?

    With that said, there are literally hundreds of strip and repair tutorials on the interwebs... DIY?

    Guys, is Kevin English or Afrikaans speaking? I did send him an email and a pm, no response as yet. Perhaps I am just too much in a hurry
    I contacted him in the Afrikaanse taal.
