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.

  6. 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.

    Quick question, are there different versions of the rekord trigger unit? That is to say, have there been incremental design updates over the years?

    I'm looking at the one from my 99s IMP, and one from a fairly new 99s, and there are a whole lot of differences.

    Dimensionly always the same. Really early ones had layered sears, rather than being one solid sear l and that’s it really.

    Basically yes, you can put one of the very early units in a new rifle.

    Quite the difference, and the one on the right could clearly do with a clean up! (I know the screw is added by SFS in place of the hex

    Also rear sear has been updated and the trigger guard thread swapped with a nut. That’s all I can think off.

    Not quite right, Mikey.

    Pre safety Rekord units don't have the little dogleg on the rear of the cassette to retain the safety in place so can't easily be used in safety guns and retain the safety.

    Early Rekord units without the rear trigger guard nut also tend to have a longer bottom sear than later Rekords which can interfere on the stock if put into later guns (77s and 97s).


    All the best Mick

    The unit on the bottom right pic looks like one from the early 80s. They were fitted with a slotted screw for the front adjustment prior to hex and torx
    That right hand unit will have the rear trigger guard screw thread in the casing whereas the one on the left has the crimp to hold the retaining nut.
    I'd say that right hand trigger unit considerably outdates the rifle it came to you in.

    You would be correct, and that is my thinking. Certainly doesn't feel or look like the way that its shown and described in one of si pittaways videos on the trigger unit tune. It was probably swapped out before sale. Might be an idea to have a look at the internals at some point. I mentioned it to pete, who I bought my other 99s from, and with that 99s I was able to hit a 10mm spinner every time at 30 yards when seated, wheras with the SFS 99s, it was maybe one in ten at 20 yards (although granted I'd not shot in a long time and was off a garden bench and table (basically having to lie down on the table to get the gun to fit my shoulder compared to a proper shooting bench at the club)). Seems to have a lot more kick than the one with a TBT kit inside.

    Next up is working out how to remove the cocking arm. Looks like a bit more work than just tapping out the trigger pins.

    The pins will be more burred over one side than the other. Plenty of rekord trigger vids on youtube.
    Good luck with that.
    I don't work on triggers Hugh.
    I send mine to Luke Jolly but Blackmax on here knows his way round a Rekord

    Baby steps for me :D still need to take the unit out of one again as the safety isn't engaging, but it still fires.

    Loads of updates some are smped metal sears etc some are twisted bits of metal others are hand made by elvish nude maidens on a mid summers eve under a waning

    Depends what you get, I am thinking it depends on their suppliers nowadays

    But essentially the design in function is exactly the same
