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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Sooooo I have had the scorpion for a few months now and I'm pretty damn happy with it but would I be happier if I adjusted the trigger? I know it's not really a question you can answer for me but I don't seem to be able to get that "feel" for when she is going to fire! I honestly don't know if it's a 2 stage trigger but for some reason I fear taking her apart!

    BSA scorpion?

    The triggers on them are almost as simple as they come, not a propper 2 stage though. The first stage is just taking up free play and only the second stage is releasing the sears. Normal adjustment is limited to the lenght and preload of the second stage. The first stage adjustment is just making sure there is some free play.

    The feel could be improved by polishing the sears, but thats not a simple job. The angles of the sear faces are critical to safe, predictable operation. It would also involve removing the anti tamper and void any warrenty. It may be worth having it professional tuned whe the warrenty period is over.

    I have the same trigger on an ultra and its not ideal, but is quite effective as it is. I just tweeked the length of the stages so they weren't too long and have just got used to it.

    Or you could adopt the 'pull through the shot' method of shooting if you don't have a clear second stage to break.

    Loads of military rifles have truly awful triggers yet outstanding accuracy is easily possible by adjusting technique to suit.

    Basically you get on aim, do your breathing to the point where you are ready to take the shot, and simply pull the trigger in one motion right through the shot, keeping the gun on aim throughout.

    A really good trigger is nice to have but it's not essential to accurate shooting. Helps though...

    My old BSA Meteor has a mechanically simple and pretty awful trigger but it is the technique that matters. As said before, you don't 'feel' for a release point but instead take a positive squeeze at the moment of shooting and it is surprisingly accurate for it because you aren't faffing for too long before taking the shot. The Accuracy International sniper rifles only have single stage triggers!

    my 95 i was waiting ages for the 1st stage to take up slack so i adjusted it so the trigger is fairly light and just give the trigger a gentle pull and it fires

    i dont really like the 1st stage i keep my finger off the trigger until im ready to fire
