Is there any place in Canada to get Air Hawk and Air Magnum seals/springs?.....There's Archer Air Guns in the U.S. but I am not aware of any dealers here....

Chinese made Ruger parts are about the same price as Diana parts in Canada. I prefer to use the Diana springs and seals over the lesser quality Ruger.
I have purchased a few of the Diana 34 rebuild kits from Scopes and Ammo with good results.

Not concerned with price as much as availability.If S & A carries springs and seals for the Ruger ....that's great....
Thanks :D

I've been told R&R Air Gun repair in Winnipeg can source Ruger airgun parts. Not all diana parts fit. I tried to order a diana 34 stock for my surge, which is the umarex branded version of the airhawk, and the screw placement was not compatible. Internally however I used a vortek kit for a diana 34 with no issues.

Are you concerned about quality? I find the Diana seals seem a bit better quality.

I have three Ruger Airhawks. Get my stuff from R&R Air Gun Repair. Full power spring was $40 CAN if I remember correctly. CHEERS!

Went from under 500FPS up to 946FPS with 8.6 grain. So almost double. Full power is a little harsh and very hold sensitive. My best shooting Airhawk shoots 696FPS with 7.4 pellets. Shoots super smooth. My 517FPS with 7.4 is a shooter and the one I shoot the most. I added in a Johnson 9.9 boat motor valve spring in with the sub 500 spring to make it 517 FPS. CHEERS!
