Arghh!!!! Body fractured - fixed!

I will not say how bad my language has been tonight but here goes.

I thought my breach seal and valve seat had dies so i set about removing the valve seat via an easy out as recommended by the ever helpful simon at ASI UK.

Only to discover my main body had several hairline fractures.

To say I'm peeved is an understatement .

So can anyone give me an idea how much a replacement body will be? I will contact ASI tomorrow and see what the damage is.

Oh well

Sounds painful.

I don't think it'll be a cheap fix, that hard aluminium body is complicated to machine.

I'll be getting a new body and pressure gauge on thursday this week.

So I should be shooting again at the weekend!
