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.

  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.

Mastiff Trigger Adjust

    I have a Webley Mastiff which I am on the whole very happy with. The one thing I wanted to change was the trigger second stage. It was a bit heavy for me and there was a tiny bit of creep.

    Adjusting it was easy enough and I soon had it perfectly set up (for me). The problem is that after three or four magazines worth of shooting the trigger was getting stiff again. Soon it was back to how it was before I had adjusted it.

    I adjusted again but after a while it was back to its old self again :(

    Any ideas on how to stop this happening?

    Is it adjusted by screws or adjustment nuts?
    Either way I would possibly use a fairly light loctite (or similar) to hold in the position you have set

    Hi it uses a nylocknut for first stage and an Allan key for trigger weight, I removed the Sears from mine and polished them up it was a totally different trigger, I have also stripped the air cylinder and fitted a Robert Lane Regulator then set it up the difference is unbelievable. I started it all because of low power but now is spot on.
    Darth have you checked the power of it because it is very common for them to only give about 8ft/lbs when new. All the best Graham.

    Hi Kev. Threadlock ordered. Thanks.

    @Bozz. Looks a bit to complex for me. I'll try a bit of threadlock on the allen screw first. It should work as before it readjusts itself it is perfect. As for the power, mine gives over 11 foot pounds and is pretty consistent over more than 70 shots, so I'm not going to worry about a regulator yet. :)

    This is 14 shots at 30 Meters.
    Stock was very dry, but a quick application of Danish oil sorted that out.

    I've never had any complaints about mine, apart from the trigger adjust and the thread lock that arrived yesterday will hopefully cure that. I have seen a lot of bad reviews, but also seen some very good ones. It could be that now it's been around a while they have fixed a few things in the manufacturing process. Alternatively maybe I was just lucky :)

    Typical I must have dropped on the Friday set up rifle left with low power, I assume that you will have an anti- tamper screw fitted to the trigger hammer spring. All the best Graham
