    Well I was up early this morning to accept delivery of this…

    IMG_1500.JPG


    7:40 this morning. Crikey! It was freezing cold so is covered in condensation in this photo.

    I managed an hour with it this afternoon and after about 20 mins was close to zero (target left).
    I then shot 2 more targets (centre and right), 10 shots at each and not to shabby me thinks!

    image.jpg

    Distance was 8m with a headwind from 2 o'clock position. It was breezy! And bearing in mind it's the first time I've shot a pistol for maybe 40 years.

    Pellets were RWS Geco.
    I was using two hands!

    Trigger pull seems l-o-n-g !! And needs some work to make it lighter. I've seen one or two vids so any advice etc gratefully received. All in all not bad for first impressions. Mainly going to be used for backyard target shooting up to 9m hence the moderator. Seems to do an ok job too. Comes complete with case and cleaning kit, all ready to go. I just need to work out what distance I wanna shoot with it. Pellet loading is a tad awkward but I will get used to it. Maybe James could make me one of his loaders?
    Anyway I'm Looking forward to some proper practice with it and having some fun.

    Nubble.
    :)

    Trigger can be adjusted.
    1. remove the allen screw at the rear.
    2 remove the bolt underneath.
    3. Remove the trigger pin(pushes out).
    4 remove trigger undo grub screw. place grub crew in upside down as it is rounded off it will lighten the play on the sear. the screw is reasonably tight so shouldn't need locktite.
    5. replace trigger and pin.
    cock gun and test trigger (adjust grub srew as needed)

    Some don't have an adjustment screw in. Mine didn't. A collar over the rear trigger pin does the same job though and can be fitted in a couple of minutes. Might as well polish the trigger/sear surfaces while you're at it. Very smooth after.

    ...pulled the trigger out last night and had a bit of a polish with some 1200 wet n dry. Started by taking out the grub screw and reversing it, then polishing the end of it. Then turned to the sear plate (if that's what its called) and smoothed that with 600 then 1200. Then the end of the sear plate where it meets the hammer spring.

    All that remains now is to remove the hammer and polish the edges of that to make cocking a whole lot easier and smoother.

    Am I correct in assuming that the more the grub screw projects from/into the sear (plate) the greater the trigger tension but quicker release??

    Thanks.

    The pull weight will remain the same although a little lighter due to the polishing. The screw removes the excess travel so just adjust to suit.
    You'll get a little more refinement when you do the hammer where it engages the sear but I didn’t notice much from that tbh.
    Mine had some hammer bounce which was cured by fitting a weaker spring which was a couple of coils shorter. Also got a few more shots per capsule from it too.
