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.

    Thank you.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hello, I went to fire my T10 today and noticed that when pushing the bolt forward when cocking (with or without pellets in the magazine) The bolt gets stuck on something you have to fiddle the mag round to push the bolt forward, It only started doing this today and I don't know if there is a way to fix it? Thanks.

    Hmm think I've fixed it, I put a small bit of grease on the o rings in side the pellet slots and its smooth again.

    If it is an old style magazine. Turn the mag upside down in your fingers, with it loaded. Underneath you will see a little "tab" that lies flat with the bottom of the side plate of the mag and drum. With your thumb nail, just press this tab in and se if the magazine drum unwinds one turn. Each time you press the tab the magazine drum should go one pellet chamber. If that works happily, then there is NOTHING wrong with the magazine.

    Now, when you load the magazine into the rifle the first pellet should be in line with the probe. Remember to close the magazine holding latch (the front slide on left of the barrel, where the barrel meets the action). Shoot the first pellet. BEFORE YOU WORK THE BOLT, ensure you have pulled the trigger all the way back. I bet the trigger let off is less than the magazine indexing requirement, that is all - so shoot normally, after the shot and follow through (which is where you watch the shot through the scope without moving the rifle - a good technique used to ensure you don'tmove the rifle as the shot goes through the barrel) Once you are satisfied with the shot, PULL THE TRIGGER ALL THE WAY BACK, you will hear a muffled "click", that is the magazine indexing link from the trigger pressing that tab, just like you did with your thumb. The magazine will index perfectly when you work the bolt. That is all there is to it.

    The old style magazines index on the TRIGGER,not on the bolt. If you haven't worked the trigger enough to release that magazine drum catch, it will not revolve and you will work the bolt but get no pellet. Provided yo have pulled the trigger all the way back, the magazine will revolve happily.

    The new type magazines with the ridged drum (red anodised?) do not index on the trigger, but on the bolt, so they are less finicky. If it is one of these I am at a loss as to why it won't work. They have always worked perfectly for everyone I know with them.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the info mate, I'd already fixed it with a bit of grease but I think that's very useful for anyone having indexing problems ^ Thanks again!
