    Lincoln here can't be faulted both air and battery. They are expensive but very good and reliable.

    Ah, I know, the lad that leaves the gun back empty hasn't done a proper greasing job, whats the chances it just held enough to run out on the last grease nipple.

    Where can i buy one of these guns and the catridges? An internet search has just shown where i can buy it in the UK.

    Also, will any screw in cartridges fit the fuchs gun?

    You can get that spring now. Mine was broke for a good while and was told the same but dealer managed to get some after. Have to replace the rivets with small bolts but has been perfect since.

    That's the problem, you have to take out the rivets and the replacement spring will go the same way, I drilled holes in the pair of handles, stuck 2 short gutter bolts through and jammed a compression spring in there.
