My club has three T200 air cylinders that leak through the gauge & slowly discharge all air from the cylinder.
Looking for a source for repair or parts to fix them.

We had this issue at my school, we just ended up buying 6 new tanks.
Not really cost effective unless you've got $800 to blow, try getting them resealed at a dive shop, they may do that.

Interesting. I just looked up Air Arms T200 in the USA. The Air Arms S200 Target is the equivalent here in the UK and they look identical except the UK ones don't have a gauge. If they did I could direct you to plenty of Air Arms spares suppliers over here who could ship. Have you contacted Air Arms for advice through their website ?

I can't even tell you if and how the gauge comes off but typically it's a simple o-ring that does the sealing and any other leaks would be down to a bad gauge. I am guessing you have identified bubbles or something from the gauge body?

Our host repairs them. We have had more than a dozen resealed over the years by Pilkguns.

Air Cylinders are good for 10 years. These are not repairable.
Unless you can find someone that is licensed to hydrotest them and then permanantly marked as being tested.
(If you can find that person willing to take on that task ... let us all know.)
---Added ... Is Pilkguns marking them?

If you do so you take on any and all liability for an accident or failure.

Just go here and order them

If it was just you and your airgun, then I'd say not adviseable.
In a club situation, it's just not worth trouble you could be buying yourself and the club.
From a legal standpoint - not acceptable.

Even in our club Precision airguns ... cylinders at $225-$250 a pop are a darned good investment.

Yes to the 10 year limit, but they should be repairable below that age.

BUT at 95 bucks its probably cheaper to just buy new.
