Iíve contacted the usual suspects Venom + Chambers but I am having a problem getting some parts: - a new piston seal + spring and spring guides, Chambers can do the spring but not the guides. Chambers also tell me that FWB donít have any parts left so itís probably a matter of just finding a shop that still has the bits from a long time ago.

Any suggestions as to were I might phone to ask?

Thanks Ora

Maccari just replied to my mail.

He can put together a kit with a spring wound to be tight on the rear (built in Ė part of the trigger block) spring guide.
Apparently the spring is shorter than the original as well, that should make it easier to fit, the original is very long.

Quote from reply.

I can build you a super deluxe kit, which is easy to install, and has a short tight fitted spring to the rear guide, a front guide and a piston spacer with piston seal and moly and tar lube. The
cost is $79 (about £45 Got to check if that includes postsge).

These kits do not twang and are built to eliminate making a rear guide-which would cost a fortune. Velocity can be kept under 12 ft lbs



Iím tempted itís a few £ more than Knibbs but if it fits the rear guideÖÖ.

Opinions?
