Hey guys~I have a QB-79 that needs some work, but I don't shoot it enough to warrant shipping it anywhere. I live north of Toronto, and work in Richmond Hill...wondering if any of you are local and willing to service this thing for me. Probably only needs seals, but a good once-over probably wouldn't hurt. Last time I shot it was almost 2 years ago, and power was very inconsistent even with a new CO2 cylinder attached. Leaked a bit too, if memory serves.

Anyhow~quote me a tune-up/re-seal...or..take my Crosman 357-6 with original leather holster in exchange! (seal condition unknown, hasn't been shot in years)

You could try North Sylva.

This is one of those situations where it is really only economical to repair it yourself, or like the OP has posted, find a local "buddy" to do it/assist. A new QB79 is $130.00 and any commercial repair facility is going to want $50+.

Agreed, easy peasy. Just one note, if you haven't done any de-burring on this, make sure you have extra o-rings as the tank block screw holes in the tube will shear tiny bits off them if/when you remove the valve. De-burr before reassembling as the same thing will happen when putting the valve back in.
