Hi guys,

Is there anyone still servicing Ultra/Master arms in the UK. Mine could do with a little TLC but I don't want to have to send it overseas if I can help it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Mike, how are you?

Think Optical Support do, try these contacts:

02072 810 999

I'd give them a try - if not they should have a number for someone else. I am certain they still do spoke to Robin at Tiffen yesterday and sure he brought up servicing there.

Hope all is well buddy

Would start with Robin obviously but also try Brian Busby at Bees Engineering on (0)20 8863 5666. Was there the other day and he's got all sorts of bits of arms lying around in various stages of repair.

Cheers for the advice guys, will do. Unless it's changed, I think Tiffen send repairs to the US. I've emailed Brian.

Hi Mike

Depends on what needs to be done and the urgency. Optical Support do service arms including G-series, Brian can do 3 spring arms, or we can make simple repairs to G-series here or alternatively older arms can be sent back to the US for service using all original parts.
