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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Have a watch of this, see if you can shed some light for me. Fairly certain this isn't supposed to happen.

    Not sure but I would guess a weak locking mechanism? Or possibly you have caught the release catch with the recoil?

    Does it do that every shot??

    I'm not really into shotguns but that does look a little unsafe

    Looks like the release lever was moved by the recoil. Gunsmith time, I think.

    The recoil is causing the locking mechanism to jump open, take it back, or get it fixed.

    Nuffield thank you for the incredibly enlightening lesson. I think that is blazingly obvious, I was looking for some insight into why this is happening and what sort of fix and price it is going to take.

    Then take it to a gun smith.
    Its incredibly difficult to diagnose a problem like that by watching a video!

    I've seen countless problems diagnosed or at least a suggestion on this forum from only a picture or description.

    Its a shot gun , lot more dangerous if faulty than a air rifle if faulty , and this is an air gun forum after all :confused:

    I'd be off to a gunsmith with it .:)

    Alex, this is in the shotgun section of the forum. You know...The bit for shotguns.

    I apologise if I sound like I'm being arsey, I don't mean to be. People were being helpful, or at least trying, what that gent said literally seemed like he was just trying to be awkward on purpose.

    No harm done, let's all forget about it. So, to the gunsmith it goes. Hope its not fortunes, being a student nurse isn't the most lucrative of jobs!

    Mbison: absent some other type of catastrophic failure with the locking mechanism, it is probably caused by a weak/weakened top lever spring. I think the spring shouldn't cost more than £20, hopefully half that, plus whatever the 'smith charges you. The work will require removing the stock to access the spring. It shouldn't be too complicated, but given that it is a pretty damn lethal weapon, you may want a 'smith to give it the once over anyway, as opposed to DIY.
    It's a known issue on some (slightly older) browning shotguns.

    Depends what the gun is and the lock mechanism. I suspect a broken latch spring. or its become loose or misaligned. I have seen that before but that was on a Lanber in 1988. it also wouldn't fire the second shot if i was shooting 28gm or below.

    Gunsmith now and don't shoot it. if a range officer saw that you'd be asked to leave. We wouldn't want you to loose your head or sight. Hope you get it fixed.

    If this is the case it may be worth contacting browning direct. They may fix it as a goodwill gesture.

    If they decide to ignore you, threaten them you will post that video up on every shooting related Facebook group and twitter page. :D

    And don't make it hollow threat, be prepared to go through with it! ;)

    The browning comment was more to indicate that it shouldn't be something totally new to a gunsmith. I don't know the make/model of the OP's gun.
