Hello,

My name is Kevin (aka etec800R). The etec800R comes from my snowmobiling addiction, my wife says I have too many hobbies!

I have one air rifle. It is a Beeman - Feinwerkbau Sport 124. My father purchased the rifle approximately 1980 and I remember shooting it around that time.  I recently started shooting it again with my kids. Seals have been replaced and it shoots very nice.  Also very accurate just as I remember.

It does have a problem. The Cocking Lever will not stay engaged with the Cocking Lever Shoe. I need assistance finding a shop to repair or maybe fix myself.  I am in Northern Indiana and would like to find someone local. Please let me know if I should start a new topic to ask my question?

I am also a forum member on DooTalk. It is for SkiDoo snowmobiles and related sled topics and know it is a great resource for help.

Thank You
Kevin
