I’ve been tuning , modifying and making custom parts for my air guns for the last while . I’ve also done some refurbishing but not what I would call restoring. What I’m offering is a repair , tuning , customizing service including rebarreling/ caliber swaps. I have a small hobby lathe with capabilities to turn parts like valve parts, spring spacers , top hats etc. I’m not a machinist and making parts takes me longer than a shop but I will use good materials. I’m willing to do the work for FREEEEEEE and only charging for parts or material. The shipping is on the owner .

I’m offering this service on a first come come first serve basis. The reason is that I’ve got my fill of my own guns but love working on them . I’m a certified mechanic and have all the right tools to do most jobs and would treat every gun like it was my own. Send me a PM if there’s something you’d like done to one of your airguns.


I’ve also got quite a collection of cast bullet molds if there’s interest in buying some of those.

Here’s a list of what I have experience with
B18/19 springers and gas ram
Weihrauch springers and gas rams
Weihrauch PCP’s
FX Impact old and new models
Evanix models
Crosman/ Benjamin PCP’s
Diana spring guns
Artemis PP700SA and PP750
Kral puncher models
Hatsan PCP and springers

Thanks guys . I figure I should maybe include what I have for cast bullets . They are .257 or smaller calibers. I put a star next to the ones that work for me in Airgun barrels.
257420
257388
257-63 fn Gc
257-63 wfn Pb
253 BBT And hp*
225-39 *
225-39 decked to 29 grain *
221 BBT*
219 bbt*
217-30 HP*

I can size for your barrel , but should provide me with a measurement of what’s wanted. I’m not sure what kind of pricing . Yet , I’ll figure that out shortly, will be less than store bought.

Here are a couple barrels I just finished for one of our Members . They were for the Kral puncher rifles. One is finished at 510mm and the other I didn’t get the actual measurement, but is full length in the shroud 10”?

WOW- you guys are amazing.

Me? retired and taking it easy. Sometimes I think I'm becoming lazy.
I'll have to contemplate that for a while while I drink another mug :D of coffee.

You are amazing!! How do you keep yourselves so busy? I mean, I also want to do that but I get too tired easily. I'm not yet retired. In fact, I love to work. But when I get the chance to rest, i really do catch up on sleep and not make some hobbies.
