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.

Aa Tdr Trigger Plate Removal Problem

    Hi

    I have one of the newer AA s410 Tdr air rifles, which I believe has modifications to the trigger unit. Recently the trigger has become a little gritty and I suspect the sears need a clean and very light lubrication. I removed the 2 screws that secure the trigger plate to the unit, but I can’t seem to get the plate to come off, it’s has though it’s glued on somehow. I’ve tried to gently lever it off with a screwdriver and it has come loose at the bottom but seems to be attached / stuck at the top ie. nearest the top shear. I don’t want to force it too much and haven’t yet removed the trigger guard, but can anyone give me an idea has to why it’s so hard to come off. I was wondering if it has anything to do with the new modifications they have made to the inside of the trigger plate which I believe are small lugs that rest on the sears eliminating the need for washers .
    Thanks in anticipation of any advice given.

    No my S400 Superlite is the same you have to really gently pry off evenly around the cover a very small amount at a time
    Once off either lightly oil edges or rub down very slightly
    I just oiled mine
    My trigger also seemed to tighten up a bit
    I haven't polished yet but loosened the tension spring (front screw) cleaned inside with very small paint brush and WD-40 and use 3in1 oil to lube
    It has made it a bit better but likely to polish Sears next time

    I've never come across one yet that just pops off, take the trigger guard off and use either a thin bladed screwdriver, or as I do penknife blade and you should be able to wiggle it free, try not to bend it, when it comes to lubrication, I prefer not to use any, and just leave it dry

    Sometimes the later (f-spec) ones seem to have some sort of gummy, semi-liquid threadlock on the screws, which can leech out and stick the cover plate to the housing. Also a tight fit on the housing and pivot pins can also cause them to hang up.

    Be careful trying to pry it off as it's soft and you'll most likely cause damage. When I have issues I usually repeatedly pull the cover plate away at the bottom then push it back home again; this often works it off its pins and allows you to eventually remove it.

    You can also remove the whole housing from the striker assy (although this requires access to the inside of the striker housing and the removal of the b*stard anti-tamper); this gives you access to the top of the plate which can help with working it back and fourth to get it off.

    Good luck ;)

    Thanks Cloverleaf, I noticed the dried residue on the housing plate screws and suspect you are right about it leaking onto the inside of the face plate. Will take my time now I know there’s nothing else holding it and gently move the plate up and down the seat posts until it’s free.

    It’s nice to be able to check with people who have knowledge before you try and force anything.
