    Was down t'club yesterday with my recenty acquired GC2, which was shooting nice and consistently, but was a little air-hungry: after about 35-40 shots the inlet valve was opening at around 100bar from a 200bar fill.

    I know the GC2s were a bit greedy on air consumption, but what shot count should I be expecting, and if it needs sorting out who's the best to go to? It's a Mk2, running around 765 fps with 8.44s.

    STAFFORD CUSTOM GUNS according to HERX77 are doing GC2s now at very reasonable rates . gotta be worth a ring . a MK2 Gc2 should at the FPS you mentioned be doing between 70 and 80 shots per charge . if it had the uprated MK 111 bleed valve . then over a hundred . ??? HOLLY

    Staffordshire custom rifles got my vote.
    Had mine done by Dave before Worlds,nice quick job and at a reasonable rate(very reasonable :D ).
    Shot count about 65-80ish,mine included replacing the original filler valve for a mini Daystate quick fill and a sleeve for the female filler, included in the package was the postage home.
    Well pleased and done by someone who appreciates GC2's.
    Don't think the mk2 can have the mk3 valve fitted,but I could be wrong.Give Dave a ring and have a chat before you send it or drive up there.Very knowledgeable lad Dave is.
