Just the spring? or the whole maintenance kit?

Just email that business and tell them you just need a full power gas strut for the gun you need and a full power spring for XX

I have played around with my steel eagle and found in full power mode it has a harsh firing cycle and is very pellet picky.My piston had a bleed hole that I welded shut.With the original gas ram and piston with plugged hole I seem to be getting 600-650 fps depending on pellet.It is much smoother than full power and not so pellet picky.You could also use jb weld or similar to plug hole.This mod is free except for the price of jb weld.I also sanded my piston seal down to give around .012" space between seal face and piston face.I tried .010" and got metal to metal contact.hope this helps.good luck

yes got it from Canadian tire <500 fps.The hole is small,right in center of piston.A long 1/4 hex driver will take it apart if needed.I used a piece of glass with sandpaper taped to it for sanding seal,harder to sand down than you think it would be,tough material.

I am using audio recordings and cross reference with chairgun for time over distance so these numbers are only approx but 650 with 14.6 H&N Field Target Trophy.I get about 75% penetration on 1x4 pine @35 feet .

I welded mine but if I had to do over I would take piston apart and use jb weld from the inside making sure to force out the other side with a bolt threaded in to "press" the jb weld through.

I just filled the hole with JB weld after I roughed it up a bit, same with the face, then just used a nail head to make it flat. Its been fine for about a year. Makes my Vantage 177 shoot 750 ish FPS with 8.2 grn or 856 with 7.4s.
