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.

    hi,

    i have just fitted a rowan extra set back trigger to my hw98 and it has made the fit/feel way way better than standard hw triggers.

    but it has changed the set up of the pull etc...

    basically when i pull the trigger once cocked, it essentially is a one stage light trigger. so not ideal at all. i've played about with the rear screw (2nd stage pull weight?) but honestly it feels like it is firing before/on the 2nd stage. so basically i want the first stage shorter and the second stage longer.

    how do i do this? (front torx screw?)

    regards
    tom

    Thank you for posting the picture for me it looks great so does
    Your rifle I like the stock.
    Once you get it adjusted I would love to here your feedback
    On the trigger and its set up and how much of a difference over the standard trigger
    It makes.

    It is the front torx screw that adjusts the stages of the pull. The best (and safest) way to set it is to remove the trigger block from the housing and set it on a bench by manually cocking and firing the trigger and making adjustments. If you remove it, place the trigger unit on a block of wood, insert the retaining pins and gently tap them with a hammer so they leave a witness mark (dent) on the wood. lift the trigger unit off and then drill the two dents to the same size as the pins and about 1/2'' deep. Now put the trigger back on the wood and drop the pins in and the trigger is now held in place on the wood. Get a pen and mark on the wood the outline of the trigger and when you set it the second stage you will actually see how much movement there is of the trigger. Horses for courses but I like to set them to release after 4mm of movement. At the back of the tr4igger is a circular hole for you to actually see the sear engagement and you can see the second stage 'kick in' via this hole.

    NOTE- When you fit a Rowan set back trigger, even with the shorter adjustment screw, the range of trigger movement is very much compromised from what may seem ideal.

    hi,

    right i adjusted the from torx screw by turning it about 3/4 turn anticlockwise. now it has a definate 1st and 2nd stage, with a crisp but firm (how i set the triggers on my rifles) 2nd stage. really transforms the standard trigger!
