I need help. I have not been successful in finding an air gun service/repair centre in the Edmonton/central Alberta area. I need the spring replaced in a Weihrauch HW 30.
If you know of anyone in the area who does that type of work please let me know. Thanks.

If you are willing to ship, then the best man I know is:
Joe aka webleyguy@gmail.com
He does great work.

Here's a site I found that lists folks that do AG repairs. It might be helpful to you:

I would just do it myself, but it's up to you. Shipping a gun around and paying people will really cost a chunk of change. It can be probably be changed in a few minutes with minimal tools. I would also consider a new main seal and lube job while I'm in there... Many will say a spring compressor is required which scares lots of people into not doing any of their own work. While I can't say you don't need one, I can say I have never used one, and I've done a variety of guns with much stronger springs.

I'm sure you can do it yourself - I can help you step for step how to de-asemble and replace the parts you want to replace and to re-assemble - If you want to do it yourself just email me at hrogers@telkomsa.net to help you

Regards
Henry

Are you sure? Lots of members here (and many in Alberta) are ready to help members, and the forum advice is free. Edmonton is not abundant with "advertised" info and repair/mod/do everything members
