Typhoon rebuild

Hi, anyone here know of someone besides PPS, who can do a complete rebuild on a typhoon? PPS wants $195...

I recommend Tim Firpo (Paintball Tek - Home). He did a great job on my Blazer and Typhoon. Very reasonable pricing and quick turnaround.

Tim does great work, he rebuilt a bunch of my autocockers over the summer.

When I air it up, it leaks down the barrel, so I supposse at the minimum a cup seal is in order. I would assume the other orings needs changing too, as well as a retime. I haven't the tools to even begin to attempt this.

I have worked on them and it can be quite time sucking job. I too recommend Tim.

I've rebuilt two typhoons and four squalls and tried to do things piece by piece and can tell you that if one thing is leaking, it's best to just do the full rebuild since you'll have everything apart. You could do it yourself if you have the time and patience. They really aren't that tough once you've done a few. However, it's faster and easier to send it to Tim or PPS.
