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.

    So purchased my first air rifle yesterday the Stoeger X20 Combo in Synthetic Black really pleased with it, fine bit of kit for the money. However, trigger has to travel some distance, known fault can be corrected with a kit I believe, anyone recommend one of these kits? I am looking for something cheap, durable, less trigger distance, and finally easy to fit.

    Anyone give me a heads up?

    Thanks.

    It's needed unfortunately, but not much. Only need to take off about 1mm. Even the CDT-III trigger needs to do the same

    The filing is a fraction of a millimetre and shouldn't be something that puts you off, just a couple of rubs with a file and test that it clears the pin.

    The trigger conversion will not make it a true two stage trigger but it's quite adjustable afterwards and removes that long creepy pull.

    My first ever "airgun mod" was fitting one of these triggers to my Crosman Nitro-Venom Dusk a couple of years ago. It took all of 20mins, and that included removing/refitting the stock. It changed the whole characteristics of the gun...highly recommended.

    Yes, very straightforward.
    I didn't have to file anything down when I did mine, but can't see that being too much of a problem to be honest.
    When you've done it, let us know how much the Stoeger has improved - 'cos it will!!

    So I had a tinker with the Trigger adjustment screw, kept turning and turning until it got a bit stiffer, then I loaded in a pellet and had a go, could not believe the differnce. Nowhere near the amount of length of pull I was having to do pre adjustment. Now I am worried though, could I damage the gun/mechanism by adjusting the screw to too high a setting, will something eventually go wrong with it? The way I am thinking I am soo impressed with the adjustment I think I am happy just to leave without a kit as is as long as it doesnt cause a long term problem. Hope the question makes sense.

    You could keep winding it until it doesn't hold back the piston,then you have an extremely unsafe and dangerous rifle.

    b****r, so how do I know how much is too much? At the moment I could tighten up the screw further it has more play. Also when I pull back trigger there is a little pull before pellet is fired does this mean it is ok, or do I need to wind it back?

    The trigger on your rifle is very similar to the one fitted to many of the Gamo rifles and if the trigger adjusting screw is the same length it's not long enough to cause over adjustment I believe.If you've got some take up travel before relase that should be okay as I don't think adjusting that screw alters the sear engagement,it only alters length of pull.A simple test would be to cock the gun then bang the butt down on a firm surface to see if it discharges if it does that means the sear is not engaging sufficiently.

    Take heed of this snippet! :up:

    If you adjust the trigger too finely you will get misfires, I had one while my Stoeger was loaded, it went off unexpectedly with the pellet hitting the side wall of my 12 litre tank, no damage was caused but it could have easily been catastrophic! :down:

    The Welsh Willy kits comes with instructions on how to adjust the trigger properly so that it remains safe.

    Damn. I am not sure how far I have tightened it up, therefore not sure how far back I need to untighten it. Will this then have a negative effect when I then add a Welsh Willy? Hope that sort of made sense.

    I think that when you use the Welsh Willy kit you discard that screw any way.

    I utilised this video and one other to establish a completely different trigger behaviour. Worked well for me and the Welsh Willy thing was not readily available for me. At GT III was available but at 370 including delivery from Germany, it seemed a little expensive for a 100 quid gun.
