    Who works on Air Arms rifles?

    I have an EV2 with a leak around the base of the air tank. I tried to take it apart but think it requires a special clamp to take the tank loose, at least I saw a Youtube in which a fellow used a special clamp to take the tank loose. I would like to have the rifle repaired. I would prefer to send it to or carry it to someone in the Northeast if possible.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    Maybe you could...

    contact one of their distributors in the US, though the closest one is near Cleveland... They could point you in a repair facility.

    I used the UK site to find their distributorship info.

    I had a big burst of energy this afternoon

    And roughed out a collet like the guy in the UK sells. I think I will be able to get the thing apart now and I also watched a couple of vids on fixing leaks so I MAY be good to go. I'll report on the outcome. I'll finish the collet after it cools off. I left .005" to finish the hole. mebby should have left .010 but we'll see.

    Success!

    Got the finish bore done in the collet and with some degree of difficulty I got the air tank and regulator out of the rifle. Everything looked to be ok but I did wipe off the surfaces of the valve, etc. Screwed it back together and no leak!

    As FDR said, there was nothing to fear but fear itself! I wasn't really afeared but I didn't want to mar any of the surfaces. The collet did the trick. Thank you once more Youtube!
