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.

Question Firing on the safety?

    Hello good people. I have put the HW77 together and just thought I would throw some lead down it to make sure it was all working ok. I noticed when I put it back together that the rekord trigger unit was a bit sensitive when I was trying to insert it and kept decocking.

    The first couple of shots were absolutely fine. then I pointed to the target and released the safety catch and BANG. This happened a couple of times so I adjusted the trigger sensitivity and it was working as normal for about 5 shots and then the same problem, it kept firing on the safety release.

    Does anyone know how to remedy this? I am currently on full tightness for the trigger but it is still happening.

    Cheers,
    Brookesssy

    Hi mate this might just help you out. Google American airguns tuning the rekord trigger. it looks like there plenty to adjust on the trigger. it explains how to adjust your trigger properly with pics. Hope this helps

    The adjuster behind the trigger is to adjust the trigger pressure- It uses a spring that you push against when you pull the trigger. This does not affect the actual release of the trigger.

    If you take the trigger guard off, you will see a tiny allen headed screw in front of the trigger. This adjusts the 'second stage' of the trigger, this is the one that needs adjusting. Currently, it is set so that the sear is only just engaging into the locked position and is so borderline it is releasing all by itself.

    Turn this small screw using an allen key ANTI CLOCKWISE by about half a turn. You want it adjusted so that when you pull the trigger you get the first movement and then the trigger should reach a point of resistence WITHOUT firing- This is the second stage. From this second stage, the trigger balde should only move a couple of MM before the shot is released.

    On the diagram below, it is described as the 'Engagement Adjuster'.

    Ah perfect, it all makes sense when you get a nice diagram like that! Thanks again, I will have a go tomorrow when it is light. Thanks again Dunkman!

    Thats it all sorted, got the gun under control...It only fires when I want it, not like Robin van Persie, he scores when he wants! I have adjusted it to being pretty close to spot on. There doesn't seem to be much of a first stage though. Thanks again Dunkman!

    This is quite a good way of showing how the Rekord trigger works when changes are made to the trigger or the sear adjustment screw:

    http://www.arld1.com/r10.html

    It shows the entire firing cycle of the Beeman R10 (or HW80 to the rest of us). If you click on the heading titled "Sear Engagement" there's a very handy wee diagram in which you can adjust the trigger and apply more or less sear engagement.

    Yep. Wind the front screw ANTI CLOCKWISE and you will get more second stage movement before release.
