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.

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.

    Picked up my rifle this afternoon from the shop and took it home to take apart clean fix and then tune.
    as i had posted over the weekend saying about it i had comments saying what it could be.. most likely to be the trigger.
    so anyways i started stripping it down and got to the the point where i was taking the spring out, got myself sorted incase there was a fair bit of prelload and the spring came flying out.. so i removed the pin and nothing... turned it upside down so it would fall out and...
    SAM_0309.jpg
    it is in 4 pieces... just as well im thinking of putting in a welsh willy kit..
    so now that i know whats wrong with it heres the questions... do i polish the spring guide (think its called that...First picture) then the outside of the piston and then the inside of the piston housing (last picture) i apologise if i have these wrong..
    SAM_0311.jpg SAM_0312.jpg SAM_0319.jpg
    if i polish these will fine wet and dry paper do with some wire wool?
    and finally a rather nice stock.. which i may add a few coats of oil too..

    if you know i have missed something ot going to do it wrong please say :)

    If you are considering a Welsh Willy kit, it comes with the spring guide and top hat etc. It's a worthy purchase as it transforms the 19.

    Have a look at this thread (you may need to register) http://ukchineseairgunforum.myfreeforum.org/about1584.html It will give you a few ideas what to do

    Beat me to it Richie......:) The friendly UKChineseairgunforum has a wealth of info on stripping and modifying all the SMK range, everything you need to know plus more is covered by top experts (Welsh Willy, Lyn Lewington etc..). You'll end up with a top smooth firing gun like my B20.......:up:

    As above the Welsh Willy kits is good, But i have just done a SMK 19, All i done was bought a Titan spring. For £19 posted, then polished the top hat, spring guide. And in side the piston where the spring go's , The get a dowel with 400 grit paper and do the cylinder where the piston go,s. Just keep the price down a little. ;)

    i thought about that then thought if im going to do it i might as well go the full thing and get the whole kit, the fact that i didnt spend a penny on the rifle makes me want to spend it on the kit.. weird i know generally you want to save it...

    So I have just installed the WW kit went to test fir aaand it wont cock, the piston will travel back to the trigger hear it click over the latch and then when move barrel back it still has pressure and latch not holding back. Im presuming its the trigger at fault. Anybody might know whats wrong with it and if It is fixable or do I buy a new unit?
    Thanks Ben

    Did you put in all of the kit? you should only have tophat, 2x slip washers, 1x power band,spring, and spring guide. Anything more than that, and the piston wont travel far back enough to latch on the trigger sear

    Yup, followed the instructions, even tried with 1 washer like it sugests. Its going far enough back and the lstch is going over then sliding off it the latch has a straight edge and no slopes so I dont understanding why its doing that...

    Got myself a WelshWilly kit (including the trigger kit) for mine and never looked back. Its now smooth as silk, reliable, very accurate and just under the legal limit. The fact that the components were all high quality and all parts were included including a full set of instructions was another plus. lf I had another 19-18 to do I would go the same way..........
    Go on....you know its the best way for you to get this rifle up to scratch.......

    I have the kit installed but the retched thing wont cock. The rrigger wont latch on to the cocking slot on the piston.

    Not weird at all, buy a WW Trigger and tuning kit, you will be just under what you can buy it for new, but you will have a sorted and tuned gun, not bad for under a hundred notes!

    That is one of the problems that the instructions I received told me to remove the spacer washers until it did cock. 3 of those spacer washers were provided in the hit and I ended up using only the thickest one.
    Hope that helps....but if not the best thing then to do would be to phone welshwilly and speak to him, no doubt he would tell you what the problem may be and its solution. Thats what I did and why I now keep giving him custom.......

    Decidedto look inside the trigger to find that the sear spring was rusted and had bust at the 90 degree bend... great! >_<
