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.

    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.

  6. 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.

    I need to get this gun repaired, only 5days of shooting b4 she let go on me & all I can do is look at her. Its sh and the at has been removed, will this cause a problem for me if I send it to AA @ hailsham? I'm relatively new to the air gun world and as much as I've read I'm still not too sure. I don't want to lose my rifle for 3 - 4 weeks and it cost a small fortune for a 10lbs reading I can't adjust. Is there anywhere else I can send her?

    The cocking action was as smooth as silk, but started to take 2 attempts to fully cock. This happened for another 10 pellets and then it wouldn't lock in at all. After several more true the arm became stuck, so I got in touch with air arms where Alan Dennis took me through steps to take off side plate and have a look to see if anything looks out of place. It looks like the top sear spring is not attached to the sear which is not putting any tension on the cocking lever and because of that it is rubbing on the pellet probe, making the cocking arm jam.

    Send it back, it's got a 3 year warranty. Won't cost you anything unless you've nullified the warranty by fiddling.
    Asking for help often gets a better response if you try a "please" and a "thank you". Good luck with it.

    I agree with the sentiment about manners / gratitude; however if it goes back to AA chances are it'll come back with AT reinstalled; with all the horror that that entails, plus if it was bought used the warranty will be void IIRC.

    Sounds like either the spring or sear is broken (most likely the former I'd guess) which the OP should be able to figure out by looking..

    I've not had an FTP apart but the trigger assy looks much the same as the EV and PT before it (they all pretty much share the same sears IIRC) which aren't too difficult to replace if you're methodical and careful.

    Thanks guys, hailsham is just up the road for me, I'll bag her up and get her up there tues morning. Sounds like I'm going to need more advice when I get her back regarding the port screws, but I'll cross that path once she's working again. Thanks again for your feedback
