Hi,
Is there any where in Canada preferably in Quebec to get a mainspring for my 1000fps Ruger Air Hawk. I believe a Diana 34 is the same ? 34 coils .128wire .810OD ?
I know I can order from Vortek in the USA but shipping is crazy..
any help or info would be great.
Thanks
ALL !

Cheers

Second that for Rob Mazur at R&R. I bought a piston seal from him. Excellent communication and fast shipping. He's an Umarex warranty shop, so he should have the parts. Don't forget to order an extra piston seal. Murphy's law says if you have a spare, the original seal will never fail.
A Diana 34 spring will NOT fit the Ruger guide. The Ruger guide is too big to fit the D34 spring. If you buy an aftermarket spring, make sure it will fit a Ruger.

Also dealt with Rob. Order arrived in 3-4days. He answered any questions on phone and email within a few hours.

I got a quote a while ago. The Chinese Umarex parts cost about the same as German Diana parts. Scopes & Ammo is where I got my Diana parts.
The 34 spring fit in my Ruger, don't remember any issues.

I send as much business as i can Eric's way also.

Note about the Air Hawk....Rob is an Umarex dealer, so he can also get the thumb-hole stock for the Air Hawk, the one I ordered is pretty nice.

THANK YOU !

I Contacted R&R Airguns and WOW! Super fast service , My parts are on the way.
Thanks All and Big Thanks to ROB!


I was an Aircraft Mechanic for 40 years , Now retired and I just love to rebuild. I don't know much about the use of Airguns and would like to know where you would suggest in Quebec to do target shooting. When I was younger any farmer field was cool, But how are things today ?
Great to get some constructive advise on this.

Best regards!

It depends on where you are, but there are some shooting clubs. Make your pick :) :

Plus 1 for Rob

I swapped my Ruger spring and it is just as acurate as a mag as it was sub PAL. Interesting unlike the Crosmans no one mentions anything about the Umarix pistons. Are they all the same?

My crosman 1000 does hit much harder than my Ruger 1000 with a penetration test only.
