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.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    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.
