    Hello all, my lg110 has finally leaked, first shoot of the new year and it just got me around the course:(

    The cylinder is fine off the gun, are there seals in the cylinder? or is it deep inside the housing,

    is it a diy job or off to a gunsmith

    tia jay.

    Mine was the same mate, reg was leaking, sent it to Harry Preston for a service and he carried out all current mods free of charge with the service, tip top now.

    You need to test where the air is going first

    Fill the cylinder to 200bar
    Screw it back on the rifle
    Cock & shut the cocking lever
    Put a balloon on the end of the barrel

    Then leave it over night & see if the balloon has inflated

    The air is leaking past the firing valve which is either due to a bit of **** on the valve face, the valve face being deformed or possible badly made. Without looking at it I couldn't tell you which but unfortunately you can't get them as a spare part without sending the rifle back, it may be possible to modify the one that's leaking though.

    Yeah sounds like the valve, the seal can become deformed and as Scooby says the valve may be deformed. How old is the gun?
