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.

    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.'

  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.

s10 cocking problem, possibly MK2

    Just posted this on the BSA OG, if anyone on here can help I would appreciate it.

    I have just bought a S10, possibly Mk2 reading Rancidtom's description of the 3 Mks, but it's developed a cocking problem.


    It was fine for the 3 or so mags used to zero the rifle, and fine while hunting until I came to cock the rifle around 0630 this morning. The cocking handle only went halfway back and wouldn't move any further. No matter how many times I pulled the trigger and cocked it the short stroke I could, it still wouldn't cock.


    I took the trigger off, had a quick look for any obvious signs of damage, nothing obvious, nothing fell out the stock when I stripped it. I had a quick play, the bolt moves the hammer and probe perfect with no trigger attached.


    I cocked the rifle and tried to refit the trigger, I couldn't get it to go, so tried with the bolt forward, it all went together eventually. Now I cock the rifle, fire it fine, go to recock and it jams, push the bolt forward and down, pull the trigger, then cock it again (6/7 times out of 10 it cocks successfully, the other 3/4 times you need to pull the trigger another couple of times. I have lubed everything I can see with Light Weapon Protection oil, this hasn't really helped.


    Any suggestions? Or does anyone have a spare trigger I can borrow to rule this out/confirm the fault?

    I have had the trigger off mate, as far as I can see, there is nothing in there that shouldn't be, not is there anything broken/missing.

    I keep thinking that something is misaligned, but I can't tell what.

    I had asimilar problem with mine. It turned out that the pin that is on the hammer and latches onto the trigger sear was not central. The bolt would cock partway and then hit the plate on the side of the trigger unit stopping further rearward travel. This didnt happen all the while. I had the S10 Blueprint Tuned and it was a different rifle afterwards:up:

    Believe me it is worth it, especially if you have a shrouded barrel. Get him to do the shroud work at the same time.

    Better cocking action, better trigger, quieter action, less air used per shot, better regulator. All this and more from a blueprint tune!
