Booking your item for Servicing or repair with TAL Arms

As well as servicing airguns and firearms booked in via our Christchurch Shop or given to a member of staff at one of our Gun Club shoots, we also offer servicing by courier for anyone requiring servicing or repairs who's that little bit further away. Available to all our Mainland UK customers we can arrange the collection and re-delivery of Airguns and Firearms via Parcelforce. A selection of insurance brackets are available to reflect the varying types of Airguns and Firearms available. All items received are photographed and inspected, and then passed along to the relevant staff Technician to address any servicing, adjustment or repair requirements you may have. Please contact us or call 01202 473030 to learn more prior to ordering.

Why use TAL Arms

  • Our staff are Daystate, Air Arms and BSA approved, but have over 20 years of experience with a variety of other Airguns and Firearms as well.
  • Because we also deal with multiple suppliers we primarily source original manufacturer parts for a wide range of Airguns and Firearms instead of cheaper 3rd party that might wear quickly
  • Each service or repair is assigned to an individual technical, giving you a personal contact to discuss your requirements with.
  • Each Airgun or Firearm is tested prior to returning (please note leak testing can be a time-consuming process) for peace-of-mind

Pricing for Servicing and Repair

We often have fixed prices for some types of repairs we carry out frequently, however for the majority of repairs we charge £40 per hour excluding parts for any chargeable servicing or repairs we carry out. If you would like to talk to one of the team about your repair prior to booking, please contact us or call 01202 473030 for more information.
