Hi
I am unfortunate enougth to own the above gun and have had loads of problems with it . First of the bottle leaked then the stem on the bottle needed replacement . I had it back from Leupys a couple of weeks a go the bottle sorted and working and a big hole in my pocket now after a couple of weeks it's stopped working again . Bottle is charged to 200 and holding but it's like the bottle is not fitted when you cock and fire it !!! Any ideas would be greatfull !!!!!!

I am sorry for my somewhat useless reply but the amount of people I see stating their stealth is broke is worrying, I would trade it in pal and get a decent air rifle or at least one that's simple!

I have a perfectly wonderfull hw100 t that I would use as my prey gun but my stealth was my first gun and served me well for a long time just wish it could still be used as my back up gun !! :(

Sorry didn't have much time for a full response to your question reason I ask if the tophat is adjustable is they sometimes wind them selves in reducing the power till you get zip coming out the valve when the hammer strikes other thing could be a broken hammer spring
What size gap have you got from the back of the top hat to the valve body
Another way to check the valve is still working is to take the bottle of put five pence piece in your fill adaptor slowly screw it onto the bottle to see if it vents air
If your still struggling send me a pm I'll give you my no ill talk you through something's

In theory the stealth is so basic it should be easy to keep them working right in reality there a bloody pain.
If you get a good one there great but I've had three first two were shite the third one I've got now is great but you do need to keep on top of them

Someone once on here likened it to buying and driving a car without a speedo. I agree. A 50 optional extra that saves A LOT of money potentially.

As chairgun users know its also invaluable for working out the ozr, optimum zero range.

A few turn up on here 2nd hand too. Superb investment!
