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.

    Howdo gents ,

    Now brief story sorry in advance for the boredom I may cause but basically mi dad bought the above rifle in .22.

    The rifle came to me as the barrel and mechanism and the stock was a two piece ,, okay it was broke in two pieces lol. Apparently caused buy someone putting an ox spring in it and the result was a break right across the hand grip there where traces of screws and gaffa tape which I guess was an attempt at a repair so I took it to work and pretty much just cause I could I repaired it ,stained and lacquered it up , before I attempted to paint the metal I thought I would assemble it and test just to make sure ,to cut a long story short (I know bit late now) the spring doesn't catch if you get me it won't cock everything is nice and smooth it just don't catch on the trigger any help or advice (apart from scrap it) ;) what could this be attached a couple of pics ,, to add ive stripped restored and rebuilt loads of bsa's but these were motorcycles not airguns so I thought ide ask someone who knew can you see anything wrong with the parts pictured
    Cheers
    Nath

    Judging by the split, wide 'scope rails that's an early rifle - I have one the same that's always been though of as an Mk1.5 / early Mk2. If you look on the underside of the breech block you should find the serial number - the first two digits correspond to the year of manufacture - I think both Knibbs and Chambers have diagrams on their sites which should help with correct reassembly of parts.

    To my untrained eye there don't appear to be any bits missing from the trigger, although it could be that you're assembling it wrong or there's something damaged (would be hard to tell from the pics) - it does look like the spring at the top of the image has seen better days.

    Looks like you've done a nice job on the stock; be warned though with the action in that state the gun's worth next to nowt - so don't chuck a lot of money at it ;)

    It's a mk 1 or 2 by design of that trigger unit I had same problem with my mk1 it wouldn't cock first reason was the sear was worn, second reason being I needed to lose a washer on spring guide that was making it coil bound

    Just piggy backing on dave ratz' good advice of cocking without a spring. If the piston can be pushed to engage the trigger and holds check the cocking lever/link has not been bowed by careless use or even over springing so cannot push piston far enough. Sorted a few over the years with that problem. Good luck.

    Just a thought but you could try making sure the trigger adjustment screw is initially set on the heaviest pull . I remember once I had a supersport(similar rifle?) and in my attempt to lighten the trigger by adjusting the screw I ended up with a rifle that would not cock . turning adjuster screw back it was fine again . This was a new rifle back in 1997 brum built ...... or maybe along those lines the spring holding the sears has weaken causing the same issue ?
    ..........................or what the guys have said above ..lol ;) hth, rich.

    Howdo guys ,
    Just a big thanks it turns out I did reassemble the trigger rete ;) and the cause was the spring being to long so a quick trim has sorted that . I wonder if I could ask one small extra favour I think the serial number reads TA23817 so what does this mean
    Again big thanks to all for your contributions
    Cheers

    The parts you require are available from john knibbs website sounds like you need a buffer washer for the piston.

    It's usually a non discript colour if that makes sense but I have an after market one that I think is green, I may have one knocking about if you get stuck
