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.

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.

  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.

Help With An Aa Prosport

    I recently bought an Air Arms prosport used and was zeroing the scope on a few cans but after only a couple dozen shots the cocking arm mulfunctioned on it, after cocking and loading another pellet into the barrel the cocking arm would not set back and the safety did not engage as I can force the cocking arm into place and hold it there pushing in the safety and pulling the trigger but no joy.

    If anyone has any idea what has happened that would be great as all I can think of is that something has happened with the anti bear trap.
    Thanks, Ryan.

    Take her apart quick mate, doesn't take long! I could be you need a new spring it's hard to tell I'm not the most experienced with Springers but I know my prosport quite well. When you cock it, does it go normally until you try to fire or does the piston not lock back in position?

    i've taken the stock and trigger guard off but not gone any further as I'm not sure what I'm doing too much and don't want to harm it more as it is still cocked. Well I can freely pivot the arm back and forth as easy as it is when cocked up until it reaches that little spring that gives it a bit of tension (that small circular 3mm bit that pushes against the arm). I can push it to be flush with the stock how it should be but it'll just spring back.

    Sometimes if the cocking arm doesn’t go back home it means you haven’t fully cocked it (sounds daft but it happens)

    I can see that happening, heard of the safety not engaging on prosports because they've not be cocked far enough, I can't move the arm any further back..., yeah, I can't get it to budge any more.

    Haha I'm an idiot, you were right, was too scared to yank it back to hard but ended up giving it a good pull and got that click, thanks for the advice from everyone.

    It sounds like you didn't give the extra little tug needed to set the safety, that's why the cocking arm didn't want to go back properly. Cock it again and watch for the safety button resetting.

    ^^^This^^^, make sure you have fully cocked it properly! Pull the cocking arm right down until there is a deffo click, then the cocking arm will go back properly. Its how the PS is made, its not meant to go back if it has not been cocked properly. :thumb:
