    Finally found time to share some info on these R10's on sale (riding shotgun on a 13hr drive to WI).   I've had my R10 MK2 .22 black wrap for a couple of weeks now – REALLY like it.  It however did need some TLC when I got it.  Now, mine might be the only one that was like this but I doubt it.  It arrived in perfect visual condition.  However, after firing off the fill it came with, it started to leak after refilling.  I researched probable causes, watched the XTX Air repair videos and went to work on it.  My gun seems to be from some pretty old stock by what I found.  I cleaned old lube and green crud off of the fill valve spring and regulator body (this crud was not on the moving parts of the reg).  I cleaned internals replaced o-rings and relubed.  Some of the o-rings had lost elasticity and the reg piston o-ring actually cracked in half while removing it.  Luckily the R10 is not difficult to work on and I had planned on "giving it attention" when I bought it.   All things considered, this is a great deal.  A little adjustment of the hammer spring and it is getting 50 shots @ 866 fps average, 14fps extreme spread with 15.89 JSB's.  It is a very comfortable stock and points instinctively.  And yes, everything you have read about BSA accuracy is true!  If you are considering purchasing one of these, do it – but order a new seal kit also.

    Glad you were able to tune your gun and fix it to your liking!

    I honestly think there is a market for the “average” air gun novice to have the major distributors offer initial tuning services when you buy a mid to higher end Air Gun.  I am not handy and really enjoy the hobby, but I don’t  really have a “knack” for learning how to tune on my own, or from watching You Tube videos.

    I truly admire and respect how many forum users can do this for themselves.  However, that does not pertain to everyone. 

    I would love love to poll the AG Nation and see how many users outsource vs. In source “tuning” services and capture their opinions.

    Appreciate all input – please try and be constructive as I know this is easy for many – not me though,

    I knew nothing, nada, zip, zero about tuning airguns when I got my first PCP.  I learned what I now know thru the  forums, videos and tinkering.  I have always been mechanically inclined so my view of the difficulty in doing it is probably a little skewed.

    I thought I was fairly competent to fix springers/gas pistons until I attempted to fix my HATSAN 95 Vortex. I sold it for what amounted to for parts.

    Now back to the OP……….R10 MK2 🙂
