Rob @ R&R Airgun Repair in Stonewall, Manitoba, is your guy.

I have taken many new & vintage airguns to him for repair. Never been disappointed. His is very honest & stands behind his work. He learned the trade from a long time airgun repairer (Jim of Jay-Cee's Rod & Reel Repairs) that I previously used, and took over the airgun repair portion of the business a number of years ago, after Jim retired.

If he can't fix it, I doubt anyone can. He even fixed an old airgun that Jim could not.

I think standard shipping to Manitoba, is not more than shipping to other provinces, from Quebec.

No offence meant to any other repairer. It's just that R&R has never let me down. Must appreciate his honesty. He goes the extra mile for his customers.

I have a collection of 55+ airguns. New, old, & vintage. Rob tells me the truth. If he can fix it, he will. If it isn't worth fixing, or parts are not available, he also tells me that.

But to give full disclosure, I have only used two airgun repairers in my life, R&R and the person he bought the business from.

Just, everyone should remember, it is not 1960, not every airgun is worth fixing. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new one. I mean, if you can buy a new Umarex XBG at Cabela's for $29.99, or a Chinese break barrel at Princess Auto for $35.99, is it really worth sending them off for repair?

Also is it worth it? Because your going to pay shipping, about 22$ each way, plus the cost of the parts or his fees. So your looking at about 100$ or more.

If its to fix the crack? Just mix some JB plastic bond or 2 part epoxy. Open the crack up by pulling it apart gently. Use a tooth pick and put some epoxy in the crack, clamp it closed. Wipe off the excess.

rightfully so, he should be telling you the truth good on him 8)
your also correct some things are not worth repairing, depending on a bunch of factors

And if Rob can't fix it, maybe Ace can. :P

Don't think he's officially "in business," but I know he's helped a lot of members on this forum.

Cheers, Mario!
