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.

    Do you mean that the rifle won't cock at all or that it cocks, but doesn't engage the trigger mechanism ? If not cocking it could be a a broken spring as LM above suggests, or if it's not engaging the trigger then I'd look for a worn sear.

    I'm in the process of restoring a Paratrooper, but the trigger system is different in the Statical and a right pig to take apart if I remember as the housing is riveted together. Can't find an exploded diagram, but it is possible that the trigger unit is the same/similar to ones fitted in other ASI rifles, diagrams for which can be found on the Chambers website (https://www.gunspares.co.uk/categories/24022/ASI/). See post number #93 in the following link for a brief strip down guide http://www.airgunbbs.com/showthread.php?379345-Idiots-guide-to-classic-airgun-strips-(pt-1)/page7

    I have these , 2 Staticals,
    I have not had one apart, But I doubt the trigger off another Gamo would fit,
    I say this as when the rifle is cocked, The whole of the action moves forward about 10 mill,
    And when fired moves backwards on a sled type arrangement, The trigger does not move at all ,
    Cheers, Ged.
    Sorry cannot find them,

    I’ve got the asi statical completely in bits and the piston as rusted solid to the chamber so I’ve had it sat in wd40 for a few days and going to try to get it to move, one of the trigger mech springs is also completely buggered, apart from that it all just need a proper good clean and rub down to see if it’s worth salvaging

    As prior, I have 2, One ( well used ) has a great trigger , The other in Very good condition has
    a stiff trigger, I know that these triggers need to be worn in !

    The trigger on these does not move on firing,
    As I mentioned previously, At the end of the cocking stroke, The whole action moves forward
    about 10 mill, On firing the action moves rearward, ( Hence the recoilless bit )
    I bought another, About 80 quid ( 8-12 years ago ) He said it was powerful It was ?
    When it arrived the action was not recoilless, But the action was fixed ! ,I sent it back,

    In my opinion, These ODDBALL guns are going to be collectible, & a number of others > You heard it here.

    are you
    are you sure the trigger doesnt move when fired??
    mine does,the trigger is attached to the main tube so yes it moves forward 10mm when cocking,then shoots back 10mm when fired
    its easy enough to set the recoiless setup,just means turning a screw and locking nut so the action is released at the same time the gun if fired.
    power wise these will get no where near the limit,be lucky to get it near 10 let alone 12ftlbs
    its a 25mm cylinder but it only has about 55mm of stroke,most 12ftlbs guns have at least of 90mm of piston stroke
    i still like mine,ive updated it a little
    shortened,silenced barrel.adjustable butt pad,adjustable cheekpiece.

    WD40 is pretty useless for that task, better with proper easing oil, diesel or paraffin
