    I think you have to give more details as what type of repair you require ?. I would never have any repair done to a cylinder .

    hi Kev
    best suggestion is to see what mds, (midland diving services) Leicester has to say, or stoney cove mate.

    Hi Clive, would they be able to help with the cylinder? Air fill tanks I could understand but the cylinder which attaches to the rifle I would be surprised!

    Cheers Clive, will do! Just spoke to mick troman and he has given me very good advice so I've removed the tiny seal at the bottom of the female connection point and just need to source another one and fingers crossed hopefully will be sorted!

    Yes they are the same thread and fitment, but the standard AR20 cylinder is steel and heavy.
    The outside diameter of both being the same. Hope this helps.

    I was told that o ring is 7 x 2 ... should be fairly easy to find.

    I don't think standard walther cylinders are that rare , I had a few offered to me when I put up a wanted add
