    If it's still got the Air Arms reg in it...there's you're problem right there.
    If there are any rivers near you, throw it into one and get a hold of a Mk3 reg.

    The pro targets are 1st class but the regs are dirt.
    Few pics in my album of my pro target and the reg you will need.
    There are various guys on here that can get you one.

    You cant just pull a reg apart rip washers out or stuff them in and expect it to work. If the seller believed that then thats proberly where tge problem lays

    Someone will be on to recomend a good fella for servicing them ,great guns worth the effort of putting right

    Its a mk3 reg then,
    Doubt the problems bigger than a service from someone who knows what they are doing mate.
    NOT THE PREVIOUS OWNER,
    As stated in the above post, you can't just add/remove washers etc.
    Get it a service from the right guy and you will have a great gun.

    pro target regs need to be serviced by somebody that knows what there doing, for a start getting the reg apart should ideally be done in a lathe chuck as to not damage the surface. reg tester is needed to set around 105bar and washers need to go in correct order with just the right ammount of grease on them. Take it to someone that knows what there doing, get it fully serviced and it'll be good for 2 years

    A phone call to Air Arms will also get you a price for a full service, at the end of the day they are the ones who manufactured it.

    Personally i'd get it done by someone outside AA who knows what they are doing.
    The air arms regs ain't good and a service isn't tough work.
    Getting the right reg set right on the RN10's / Pro Targets is where the work is at.
    I have one here and it's pellet on pellet every shot.
    Shoot it till it runs out of air and it will still hit the mark right up until it dumps out the remaining air on the final round.

    Great guns, great design, great loading system, where you can still see the pellet, unlike probe loaders.
    They just need the right reg set right.

    Try saying that when you are drunk.

    If it was a Mk1 or 11 reg . then yes he would have been in trouble . but i really don't think there can be any of those left working .i believe air arms charge £ 60 for a reg service ??? HOLLY:)
