  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.

Advice how to move a trigger?

    Hello :)
    after searching for a bullpup conversion for my at44-10 I could only find one site that done them... But costing over £300 "which IMHO is crazy! A brand new at44 is only £50 more!" So I'm going for the alternative option of having a crack at making my own :)
    I have some wood to use for my first stock attempt and some tools "also my area has a local joinery shop if i get stuck" :) but the one thing that stumps me is the trigger... Does any one know a detailed guide they could share? Google results usually just show already converted guns with no real details to how the triggers are adjused... I have a few spare guns I can break for triggers.. I just need to know how its mechanically set up.

    Thanks in advanced :)

    Usually there is a mechanical connection from your new (forward trigger) to the original. The simplest method is a rod but it has to be done so that it doesn't flex too much and without any slack.
    Unfortunately this does tend to make the trigger worse than it was originally as there's more moving parts, friction, slop etc. All adjustments will be made on the original mechanism, the new trigger is just a simple lever.
    It would be possible to operate it electrically, the new trigger would operate a microswitch to energise a solenoid which worked on the original trigger. With this system you could set your trigger to whatever pressure you wanted using a spring to add weight to it.
    Several of the members on here have built bullpups and others, like myself, own them. If you get stuck I might be able to get some photos of some of the system but anti tamper prevents me from getting at it easily.

    I have looked around the net for some detailed photos or a guide on which materials to use but the results mainly just show a already converted rifle in its stock.. And YouTube videos just show the triggers already in the stock also, I'm just looking for some detailed pictures of the rifles out of the stock to get me going as I said above I have some old pistols I can salvage a trigger from as for the mechanism I think using rods will be the best option as for electric parts I'd imagine can let you down a lot?

    That's an excellent link, full of good information. Thanks for posting it.
    The electrical trigger should be a simple, reliable option, the trickiest part would be finding a suitable solenoid which could be either push or pull. It should be fairly easy to fit but that would depend on your new stock and if you can design it around the new trigger mechanism to allow space for the parts. It's certainly something that I would try if I were doing a similar project as, in my opinion, the trigger is the weakest part of the bullpup concept.

    Took the words out of my mouth! Amazing link with all the pictures and details I needed :) the trigger rod system is pretty straight forward! I was expecting it to be more complicated tbh, the hardest parts would be the aluminium barrel bands as I don't have the tools for machining them so I would have to seek help and a price from the local engineering shop but I'm certainly going to take this route with my at44! Lovely rifle but the weights its downfall IMHO so apupping it will balance it out nicely :) not to mention ditch the synthetic stock.

    Cheers for the link and info lads :)
