    Just getting inside a common rifle like a S400 with AT plugs etc takes a while.

    Look at any business for the price of labour. Garages seem to be about 40 and up.

    So if I takes a few hours to do the job then it will cost lots.

    People don't do the jobs for free

    Imagine if it was your business. Work out what you would charge for doing the work to keep the business going.

    Fred in his shed won't charge the same but he won't be doing it for free

    And supplying parts costs more too.

    Also depends where it is leaking from. It could be more than just an O ring and spares are not cheap, add postage for the spares and it soon mounts up

    Unless he's your mate he's going to charge you something, a bloke doing it as a "subsidised hobby" is probably going to charge 20 an hour, plus parts, a commercial gunsmith probably well over double that.

    For a 5-10 minute job you might still get a freebie or "the price of a pint",
    on something simple like a Rapid it's better to buy a good "how to" dvd & learn to do it yourself, for a lot of other rifles the manufacturer/importer is as cheap as anywhere.

    Is 80-100 fair then ?,i dont know ive never had a gun repaired/serviced before,the seals are only coppers to buy thats why i thought 80-100 sounds expensive,but you lads know more than me so thats for putting me right.
