I had a leak in one of my firing valves after 5 years of use so you'll get plenty of use for your gun. It's also easy to fix the existing valve but spares are not too expensive either. Pellet probe flaking depends on luck, there's a bad batch of nickel plated probes out there.
Thanks your advice is greatly appreciated
It may be worth me buying a spare pellet probe for the sake of £20
As for the valve I will have to look into that an see exactly what is required

All O-rings, firing valve may start leaking somewhere down it's life, pellet probe may start flaking.

Hi all, just thought i'd take the time and introduce myself, i'm Dean from north Yorkshire,  i found myself here after buying my 1st ever BSA rifle (a secondhand scorpion SE 1.77 cal)
and thought it'll be a great place to pickup some needed advice, hints and tips..
in the past i've owned other air rifles such as a weihrauch 97k and a air arms s410 but give them up due to losing my permission 5 years ago, but iv'e recently been bitten by the bug again after seeing and reading good reviews about the scorpion se...

I am looking to move to a farm/small holding somewhere in Europe in the new year. Not permanently at first probably spend the winter working back in blighty. But somewhere cheap probably Bulgaria, Hungary or Portugal. Anyway I have now bought the rifle I wanted to take with me. A new model BSA Ultra SE which I think will get a lot of use. So I am wondering just how reliable are these rifles?

I will be living in rural area with I imagine not very good communications, postal service nor a local gunsmith. Not to mention the language barrier, in the beginning anyway. So I am needing some good links to docs or vids on how to maintain and repair the rifle myself. The only previous experience I have is in the infantry stripping rifles blind folded and the like lol. That was a long time ago :( Bear in mind that these days I cant even change my trousers in the dark without falling over

I also would like to know what parts are actually perishable as I think it would be a good idea to take a supply of these parts. I am thinking O-rings but should I consider anything else that is likely to cause problems or even fail?

Also what else may come in useful I am thinking spare parts for the hill pump also tools and other products.

Thanks in advance
