  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Work out where the leak is and do yourself. They are simple to work on. The only pain is if AT is still fitted but even that is easily removed the only one that needs any kind of special tool is the screw that mustn't be mentioned and people have even done it without that. Strip doen guide on the Air Arms forum. It may not be a damaged seal could just be the valve not seating properly due to dirt. If it is blowing air out of the barrel then it will be the valve otherwise it will be one of the filling valve or the air cylinder seals. The barrel and transfer port seals will cause power loss only. In fact you dont need to deal with the anti tamper to replace any of the air cylinder seals. Just remember to empty all the air out before you try to take it apart.

    Put a balloon over the barrel. Make sure it has no air in it when you start then tape it on. If it fills with air then the valve is leaking. If not then some soapy water around the air cylinder joints and the filling valve (in best Paul Daniels voice "not a lot"), if bubbles start to form then thats where your leak is. Remember to dry off fully after and lube. Once you know which area its leaking from then you know which parts of the strip down you need to pay attention to. if it is the valve remember to measure the valve pot height so you wind it back in the same. It's not as scary as it seems and its a damn sight cheaper to do it your self (a few quid for seals and a couple of hours as opposed to about £100 and a couple of weeks).

    You can narrow down the source of the leak quite simply, you need 2 small balloons. When the gun has some air in it (100 bar is plenty) take off the silencer and the cap covering the fill adapter. Put a balloon over the end of the barrel and the second over the end of the air cylinder and tape them in place. If a balloon starts to inflate that will indicate the location of the leak.
    If it's leaking out of the barrel then it's probably the firing valve, from the cylinder then likely to be the filling valve or, less likely, the seal at the end of the cylinder. Another common site for leaks is the pressure gauge where ther are o rings which can give problems, a few drops of soapy water around the dog leg of the gauge mount should show any leak there.
    The best source of spares, in my opinion, is Julian Bond who sells them on the owners club site and he is an excellent source of advice as well.
    Just seen the post above which covers the same ground but all of this work is simple to do and really only requires basic skills, some common sense and a clean area to work in.

    My Air Arms Technician is on holiday this week and not back until next week after the bank holiday. Without him being here i can't get an exact price, but i believe a full service, which is a complete strip down and new seals everywhere etc was about £60. It may well be cheaper, but i will get an exact price for you when he is back.

    But like others have said, if you fancy having a go yourself then the parts are readily available online, with plenty of people on this forum able to give advice.

    hello, thats a good deal if you warranty work, i would not consider to do myself for that price by the time you bought service kit. if it does need internal parts that can be done to but it cant be that old as how long have the S510 been in production, anyway i hope he can sort out and get back shooting

    My colleague is now back in to work. It would be £60 for a full service from us. If it's something you would like to do then please feel free to bring the rifle in. My gunsmiths name is Matt and he'll be able to help you out.

    Would also just like to add that Matt is a qualified Air Arms technician.
