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.

    I like my LGV but don't like the Walther trigger so have ordered the Rowan Engineering version. Has anyone else done anything similar? Is it relatively simple to change the nasty plastic version for the RE version?

    Thank you as ever for your help and advice.

    Very simple. The side plate comes away giving you access to everything and seeing how the trigger is held. Easy swap.

    You must have an early model LGV. Most UK imported LGV's have a metal trigger. If you do a search on google, you will find lots of info on adjusting the standard trigger to an acceptable level. But there are also some really great modified triggers that improve it a lot.

    bought one myself recently, easy to do.

    as an fyi rowan have introduced a screw slot in the middle, this gets over some of the criticism that the "outer" points are too far apart. It's worthwhile playing with the settings while it's apart as it gives you a good idea how the adjustments impact the. mechanism / setup

    Bought in June last year. That's not an early model as I understand it. Although you've just given me a thought: I bought it from Blackpool Air Rifles and it was significantly cheaper than I could find it elsewhere so maybe it was old stock.

    Hi there have you fitted it yet, just that i have been reading on a blog done by Hector Medina about a slight problem he had with fitting the trigger, its about half way through this link under tuning the LGV trigger. Hope it has all gone ok and you find the new trigger worth its cost, i don't have the LGV myself i have the LGU which is almost the same, also to note Tinbum is now selling a kit to upgrade the tuning of the walther's.
    All the best Graham.

    The early models to the UK (2012) had the 2 screw metal trigger,this was on the LGV Comp Ultra,Master & Challenger.The much later LGV Century models came with the standard plastic trigger.
    German models have the plastic trigger as standard with the tuning trigger as an extra option.
    The plastic trigger was supposed to be fitted to the current Master Pro though it appears to be still available with the metal trigger as with the LGU.

    As ever with the air rifle market & its products it is never clear cut with models seemingly changing between batches.

    The importers told me that the early LGV Master pro had plastic triggers and told Walther that the British market wanted metal triggers. Hence why most of the LGV master pro's sold here since 2014 have metal triggers.

    I've heard similar, my Master Pro came with the metal trigger & is a UK first batch model from Armex in 2014.:)
