I got this info. for someone on the BSA Owners site. He chose to ignore it and preferred to whinge instead.
"I spoke to JB this morning. I mentioned your problem. He said it was a two minute job which should be sorted by a competant dealer. The leak is caused by the ingress of muck, brass flakes from the restrictor screw in the probe etc. This gets onto the inlet seal and causes what he called a "leak path". You dont have to mess with anti-tamper devices which will void any warranty and could land you in trouble with the law if they wish to inspect and "play" with your rifle to see what it is capable of. Remove buddy bottle. Remove regulator block from the rifle body by unscrewing the long M6 caphead screw that goes through the toast rack and pull block off the rifle. Unscrew socket from the block which buddy bottle goes into. Remove the slotted screw from the front underside of the block. That is important. Now you can remove the hex. headed brass plug under the buddy bottle connector. Inside is a spring, ball and a fat O ring at the bottom of the recess. Clean it all to remove muck and re-assemble. Hey presto problem solved. Carry on shooting."
Hey El Caro thank's for your help here, and over on the BSA owners group forum.
I took apart my R10, and cleaned out the inside where the regulator,and quick fill probe goes into. After putting things back together. It was good as new. With that being said, do you know if backing out the regulator adjustment screw will increase the power on this gun?
