I have the need for a couple of parts for a Beeman R1/HW 80.  They are the front and rear trigger guard screws.  James Maccari/ARH doesn't have them.  JG Airguns carries more factory parts than ARH, but John says he doesn't carry the screws either.  I could substitute a generic screw for the rear one, no real problem, but not the front one.  The head of the front screw is custom-machined to a special shape, and it's a 7 mm screw besides.  Almost any 7 mm screw can be pretty hard to find, in the USA anyway.  Besides, I'd like to keep the rifle as 'authentic' as possible.

I can locate both screws on the Chambers UK site with no problem.  I have a tuning customer who used to order parts from Chambers so I know it can be done.  In fact, I think even I ordered something from them at least once, although I can't remember what it was at the moment.

So, it's down to this: Are you guys having good success with ordering from them, and getting what you ordered?  Is the shipping reasonable?  What about lead time?  Do customs delays cause any special problems?  For that matter, is there anything else I ought to know or keep in mind as I do this?  I assume I can use a Visa card, etc, to make a purchase from them.  I say that because I ordered some pellets from the UK once--I think the company was TAL arms--and IIRC I was able to use a credit card to make my purchase.

Any comments, advice, and pointers that would help me get the parts I need would be much appreciated.  Like I said, Chambers UK shows the parts on their site in their exploded diagram for the rifle.  I just need to get them here, hopefully in a reasonable amount of time and at a reasonable cost.

BTW, if I've overlooked a US source for getting these parts, please let me know.  That would obviously make things easier.

Thanks!

Safe and Happy Shooting!

Chamber is easy to deal with and there shipping is far but there price are in pound so be aware of that, so the screws are not going to be cheap but I would buy them also to keep the rifle in factory form

the best bet is look around to see if they have something you could use on another air gun or could just put in the parts draw for later

week to 10 days to the west coast and you might look at John Knibbs the prices could be more or a little less, even PA has some parts for this and that but no picture on most and that makes it harder

you could get them from Waffencenter Gotha but shipping out of Germany is slow and pricey that's all I got but it will 2 screws for 20 bucks

I have ordered from PA and over the pond.  I ordered a bag full of those screws last time.  Think I used this place on my last order.

marflow, you're a genius!  How did you find the schematics??  I tried to do so before I made my post.  I thought maybe I'd seen schematics on their site before, but I couldn't remember where.  The only thing I could guess to try was to enter the word, "schematic" in the search field on their regular .com site and hit enter.  It gave me no results at all.

I'm going to check their inventory and get the screws if they have them.  Saving $2 would be ridiculous if I had to buy them from the UK.  The shipping would instantly eat that up, and much more I'm sure.  

If you have the link or links to the place(s) that lists ALL of their schematics, I'd really appreciate having it/them.  I tried shortening the characters in the link to what I thought would get me there, but my browser and Pyramid's site didn't like how I was trying to do it.  (Wait, I think maybe I found it.  It looks like if I enter "Vortek" in the search field, then enter the model number of the rifle I'm trying to find factory parts for, it brings up the schematic that includes a listing of OEM parts that they carry.  I think.  I found another page, too:

https://www.pyramydair.com/airgun-airsoft-schematics

That should take care of it).

Prarie Farmer, thanks for the John Knibbs link because I forgot all about those guys.

Thanks a lot!

but remember the prices at Chambers are in POUND and 3.95 pounds is $5.25+-  you got to watch your currency conversions

and how did find it, I just Googled it looking for part number

there has been more than on person thinking that the UK prices are in dollars but at $1.30 for each pound it adds up but nicer then when the pound was at 1.50 or more

I have bought many parts from both Chambers and Airgunspares shipped to Washington state and have never had a problem.  Both ship quick and the product is always what I ordered .

For my HW97K, I replaced the slot head screws with hex head ones bought from McMaster-Carr online. Now, I no longer need screwdrivers to disassemble my HW97K.

The trigger guard screw (small one) is M4-0.7x12mm
The front trigger guard screw (large one) is M6-1.0x12mm

The two forend stock screws are M5-0.8x8mm

Otherwise, I have bought the OEM screws from PA.

I have also bought a cocking lever and other parts from Chambers as well with no problems. I got it in 6 days to my house in CT.

Thanks, marflow.  The site seems to have many air guns on their list, but at least after taking a first look, it's not too obvious to me as to how to find the parts diagrams.  I see the technical specs, but that's not usually what I'm looking for.  I guess I'll have to spend some more time there to see if I can find them.  You said the parts diagrams are there, so I guess I'm missing something. 

FWIW in this regard, I find the navigation of some sites (for things related to air guns or not) to be fairly-intuitive to me, but others not so much.   Chambers is in the latter category.  When I open their site link, the parts diagrams almost jump into my lap.

Safe and Happy Shooting!

Your input regarding your personal experience with Chambers is very-helpful, as are similar posts by others.  My thanks to you, and to all of you.
