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.

    Seeing as I have no grips at the moment as I have sent them off to Geordie for a custom job and the weather is no good for shooting I decided to set about tuning my trigger as in its factory state it's very creepy. After removing the two retaining screws the grip/trigger frame came away and I took to removing the 3 Allen screws to remove the cover

    Cover removed..

    Out with the sear and I took to polishing all contact points on the sear, where it meets the trigger, hammer etc.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/04/

    There were a few high points and signs of contact wear and it was rough to the eye and touch but with a bit of elbow grease with wet n dry used dry all contact points including where the spring fits on the sear were polished with the wet n dry and Autosol. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/04/

    I also rubbed the trigger blade down to get rid of the black paint.
    [​IMG]This being a purely aesthetic and temporary measure until I get a brass trigger.
    Moly greased any pivot points on the sear pin and trigger pin, between the trigger spring and sear and on the trigger spring peg. Put it all back together and the trigger is transformed and an extra bonus is the cocking is also now very smooth. I also previously over compressed the spring between forefinger and thumb which gives less tension on the spring resulting in a lighter trigger pull.
    Total project took about an hour and a half total.

    Yes I know there are trigger kits out there but this was a b****r all cost mod that I think has made a vast improvement on the trigger. Sorry about the missing images I did this on my phone and mistakenly put spaces between the URL and don't know how to fix it. If anyone wants the images just ask here and I'll post them up.

    More pics, sorry if I duplicate any of them. They are contact points on the sear.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    And here is where the trigger contacts the sear you can just see a friction point.

    And the same point polished up.

    I've got a new 2240 and am looking into various mod options. would you recommend a new trigger altogether, if so which one? also , what do you use to polish these bits?

    If you want any parts polished mate, drop them by and I'll run them on the sisal, got all the polishing stuff now!

    I wonder if you can do the 'notch' modification on the trigger like the XS79 to make it a two stage?

    Did mine ages ago after looking at the kit costs but then opted to do it myself and took the easy route by using a Dremmel stone then finished with diamond files and wet and dry (oiled) paper to end it. Used graphite grease though not moly.
    Weakened spring and its very light and smooth now.
    Might give the trigger a look at though and get to look like yours......
