    Unhappy Aleakto

    So, I just noticed my Alecto was loosing power it seemed. Sure enough I could hear the dreaded hiss when pumped. I check Tom Chambers and it seems there are no seals available,except for the breech,only the entire compression tube is sold which was not in stock anyways for like 130 something. Anyone know if this is true ??

    Looking at spares site here info you have seems correct. I would see if the compression tube can be stripped and source a similar O ring locally.

    Try a drop of three in one type oil in the little hole in the cylinder first!

    Cheers.

    So, I knew about the Zoraki name. I looked at T.Chambers under Zoraki and.....They carry internals there! Who knew. Thanks for the clue.
    It's great to mine the collective brain trust.

    Well...Order is in for the Alecto/Zoraki leaky parts......Decided to splurge on an extended barrel and suppressor. I'm into it now.

    Excellent and Iíve now learnt I can go to Chambers if ever I need bits for my Alecto in the future as I didnít know that, Iíve only been told you canít get parts for them.

    Nah... worth the try .....I had my doubts though...... I think that would work better for a spring piston rather than a pneumatic.,most especially a leather sealed one........ Looking forward to my extended and threaded barrel. No silencer imports to US but I've already got one on the way from a US company to fit the M10x1.0 threads.

    FWIW my Mk1 Alecto started leaking within a week or two, my RFD sent it back under warranty, it came back with a new valve system and it has been as good as gold ever since.
    Good deals with: CannonFodder, bozzer, danny20, dexter151, DJP, Ferrets Bueller, Gareth W-B, Garvin, ggggr, harry mac, Holland7, krazy_horse, Ratsrus, neil ledger, u.k.neil, UPINSMOKE, wilkosp, Zooma
