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.

  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.

    Hey everyone, about a few months ago I purchased the Umarex legends 1911 all metal blowback airpistol, and it worked great for about a few weeks when one day I went in my back yard to shoot some cans, fired, and instead of the slide, y'know, blowing back and then returning forward to fire again, it blows back and remains stationary. Thinking I was out of bbs I removed the magazine and found there was still plenty left. So I pulled it back and let it go forward again, aimed, fired. Same thing happened. I even tried a new co2 cartridge and the issue persisted. I've disassembled the gun, looked around in it for any obstructions tried oiling it, and the furthest i've gotten to an answer is that its going back and getting caught, but I am unable to figure out what exactly it catches on, so after every shot, I have to essentially help the slide return. I came here as a last resort to see if anyone experienced a similar issue or even if it is a fixable one. Thanks.

    At first it sounded like you were low on gas not having enough to blow back the slide.
    Not sure how it uses gas to blow back, maybe that nozzle is blocked ?
    Or as you say something catching. Is it a field strippable model ?

    Yes, it is a field strippable model. One thing i've noticed is usually the slide racks just find with no magazine in, but as soon as the magazine is in and I attempt to fire it, it fires the BB and locks back regardless. I can provide images if that would make this easier.

    I'd check a BB hasn't lodged in the mechanism somewhere internally.
    If there are no obstructions visible then I'd just return it to where you bought it.

    I was figuring that was going to be the end solution. Thanks anyway.

    From your description of the problem it sounds like the Sear spring may need a bit of adjustment. The spring is located inside the pistol grip. If you search the net for something like "slide not returning/cycling" you should find some info.
