1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

.22LR Rugger 10/22 problem

    I went out for some target practise this afternoon and after putting about 30 rounds through the gun I had a jam up. Ejected the round ok and fired another couple of rounds before it happened again. Once more it ejected the round ok but then it wouldn't fire.

    The round was being fed through ok but it just wouldn't fire, I was pressing the trigger but nothing was happening, it was as if it hadn't finished cycling the round ready to fire.

    Any ideas or suggestions to what it could be?

    I only have limited experience with the 10/22 so wait until someone who really knows what they're talking about comes along ;)

    First thoughts are how clean is it ?

    Second thoughts are that perhaps the firing pin spring is fatigued, broken or otherwise in a weakened state ?

    There's really not much that can go wrong with one and almost all issues other than outright mechanical parts failure are usually related to the gun and especially the magazine(s) needing a blimmin good clean, paying particular attention to the sear, trigger and hammer.

    Just out of curiosity, can you reset the trigger by pushing it forward ?

    Not sure, I didn't try but I will next time. The gun was clean as I give it a good clean after every use.

    It sounds from your post as though a new round is being chambered but that the rifle is not being cocked. Are you using subsonic rounds which don't produce enough recoil to properly cycle the action? Sometimes you can get dirt between the rim and the chamber which cushions the firing pin causing misfires but it doesn't sound as though that's the case here.
    22lr rounds do tend to produce a lot of dirt which can cause plenty of problems in self loading rifles, the bore is usually fine but the crud clogs up all the moving parts. I've cleaned and repaired loads of them in the past for people who thought that you don't need to clean 22 rimfire rifles and quite often they would just get rid of the rifle.
    There's not a lot of energy in the round to cycle the action and anything that slows it down will cause failures and some subsonic rounds can cause problems that are solved when you use standard or high velocity rounds.

    As above strip it down and give it a good clean.

    Is the bolt closing home? Have you test fitted some ammo in the chamber try a few?
    Extractor recess area clean?
    Lots of wax on bullets clean off any large deposits before loading in the gun?
    Hope you get to the bottom of it .
    Cheers Andy

    Thanks for the replies lads, I'll strip it down again tomorrow and give it a thorough cleaning.
