I actually found it easy to put back together myself.

There are metal bars running along side the bottom section where the main pin goes in and these have to be lined up. It is helpful to use a smaller screwdriver or something to line it up with the hole. Then put the pin in the first side and repeat on the 2nd.

Thanks for the pictures scruffie, and the instructions Mod33, all tuned up!
Just bought a chrony yesterday. I was shooting RWS Meisterkugeln .22 cal at 353fps average before the mod. Now I'm shooting around 475fps with those pellets.
Much louder crack at 3 pumps! All in all, the mod took about 5 minutes, with this being my first opening up an air gun. With the trigger pull and valve adjusted this thing is a real beast.

Hi bowser.
Most folks screw the valve closed and then back it off a bit. When you made you valve adjustment, how far did you back off the screw?

I think I answered this is another post, but I turned it back about about 3/8s of a turn (so just a bit farther back than a quarter turn). I was told 1/8th should be enough to keep it legal, but I wanted to be extra safe (the Alecto looks too mean to risk being even close to illegal).

Shooting it now indoors, 3 pumps is not only somewhat difficult (I'm 6 feet tall 175 pounds and 3 pumps is just unreasonable for plinking), but VERY loud. It also does give a nice little kick at 3 pumps, muzzle flip and all.

I think I did close to one complete turn... I didn't screw it all the way in because when I started to screw it in, it was already feeling pretty tight.

Hey guys just thought I'd suggest something else everyone should check and or modify is the spring inside the main valve ( the big one that touches the barrel). The spring is sanded to have a very flush surface, and at each tailend it's very thin. This could (happened to me) chip off at become floating debris inside the valve, causing oring damage and improper seating of the valve stem. Not the easiest thing to do but it's worth the look!

I made sure to clean the valve area of all debree as there looked to be a little grease with detritus in there before tightening it back up.

Some report a high pitched squeak on compression but It appears to not effect velocity.

Alectoly addicted i am :)

Is that the part that contacts the pellet chamber at the rear of the barrel? It looks like it will unscrew with an allen key (possibly the one supplied with the gun), is this true?
Thanks to everyone for all of the help given. I really like my Alecto and shoot it almost every day. Amazingly my accuracy is slowly improving.
