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.

    Ta - I do the odd TXs (I have a few too) and had fun doing Jason's 22mm Tony L conversion a while ago. I can do most jobs on them, although with the current travel restrictions and distance involved this might prove tricky for the forseeble. I can take guns by post but would rather not for all the usual reasons.

    @Grizzlygriff, by all means drop me a PM if it's something you'd like to discuss further :)

    And what a top job you did mike :thumb:. The thread you did on here you should write up for an airgun rag - seriously, very impressive measurements taken. All I can say is how nice it is to shoot - but you've got objective data of clear improvements!!!! It was a great project and write up. :thumb:

    I'm very greatful. :thumb:

    Given the nature of the problem and the interests of the greater good I'd posted Griff's PM below to illustrate the problems he's having and my reply below, FWIW:

    It sounds like the sears are no longer holding the load of the compressed spring, leaving that down to the safety to keep the top sear in place. Worst case this could be due to sear damage / breakage depending on how it's been treated; although if you're lucky it could just be an adjustment issue.

    How did the trigger feel before it failed - a full, proper two-stage pull or a short, crisp single-stage release? As a starter I'd recommend winding each of the two adjustment screws in the trigger blade out by half a turn; if this makes a difference it's probably an adjustment problem; if not it's likely something more severe.

    Beyond adjustment issues the trigger unit will need to come out of the gun for stripping and inspection; which is straighforward if you have the tools and knowledge but potentially a bit of a minefield if not so I'd urge caution if you're not confident.

    There are some guides floating around (on here IIRC and the net) about TX trigger adjustment so it might be worth talking a look at these to get a better idea of what's going on. You can also get an idea of what's going on inside from the pics in this thread on my Mk3.

    As usual proceed with tinkering carefully and only if you confident; if you're still having issues and can get the gun to me (eventually after all this madness has subsided) I don't mind taking a look, but please bear in mind that sears (and possibly even complete trigger units) aren't available as spares as far as I know, so if something is broken it might write the gun off unless you can find a used replacement.

    HTH ;)

    It feels like first stage then nothing , if I take the trigger block out it works fine , I can cock trigger and fire it , put gun back together and won’t fire , if u press the safety button gun fires,I’ve tried the adjustment screws little by little and makes no difference .cheers
