This happened to my sons S200 after about 8000 shots.

looking at the left side of the action when cocking the gun, the thin cocking lever was not always returning when the bolt was pushed forwards.

this prevents the hammer from imparting full force to the air valve.

I found a burr on this and its removal cured the fault.

During my inspection of the gun i also found a sticky residue from oil on the hammer, I cleaned the whole action thouroughly and used a dry PTFE lube on the hammer.

this cured it and using a chrono i was able to set the power to 11.8 ft pounds.


This is an excellent little gun and when you do need spares go to air arms directly i found them really helpfull and fast. :sly:
