Air pistol repairs

My air pistol seems to have lost its oomph. It still fires, but when I break it open there is very little resistance and the pellet doesn't have anything like the force it used to have.

Is this something that can easily be remedied? Can I do it myself or will I have to send it off somewhere?
If the latter, any recommendations as to where to send/take it?

Thanks in advance and sorry about the noddy question, but I really know nothing about air guns other than how to load and fire them.

The piston seal is probably worn, or the spring is knackered. A good gunsmith should be able to fix it. What make/model is it?

It is a Predom-Lucznik .177 replica of James Bond's Walther LP-53!

So a gunsmith may be your only option.

Bah. Why is nothing ever straightforward in this house?

Would you happen to know of such a thing as a good gunsmith in these parts-ish?

There's a shop in Shrewsbury that I'm sure does that sort of thing. I'll ask the old chap to pop in and ask next week if you like.

Oh, yes please. That would be great.

Bring it along on Monday, then. He could take it in on Tuesday.

Good idea!

Get a quote first. I had my rifle serviced at the gunsmiths in Belle Vue Rd last year and it cost a LOT more than I was expecting! If I was looking for repairs now, my first call would be at Wynnstay or Morgans. Both in Oswestry. Good luck!
