    Ok, anyone got any hints/tips... is it easy or hard...?

    Got a club S200 (latest model), every 2-3 shots it seems to give a dull sounding shot... was ok the previous fill, then after that did it more and more... cocking handle isn't moving.

    The club guns see a bit of work, so it wouldn't suprise me if it could do with a service... apart from AA, anyone got any recommendations?

    Not a very timely reply but... sometimes the cylinder on the s200 starts to unscrew - probably caused by some owners screwing the dustcap on far too tightly and then accidently unseating the cylinder when removing it. Anyway since the firing valve is in the cylinder this will cause the hammer to soft-strike the valve and you get erratic muzzle velocities. Worth checking before you take the s200 to bits looking for the real fault! :)

    Got this problem on our club S200 Mk3: the simple solution is to put an O-ring at the bottom of the dust cap thread so it stops overtightening but still holds the dustcap securely.
