Re: Trigger reset to Factory spec

Well, have to say, if you've fitted rowan triggers, I imagine you would have read the fitting instructions, will you be letting them know that there fitting instructions are potentially unsafe, because they pretty much suggest to do them the same way that I do it . :roll: Rog Rog, I wasn't looking ...

Well that's something we agree on!
I've replaced all my AA trigger blades. 3 have Rowan adjustable and one with a wider custom blade. No spring or safety on any. :mrgreen:

Re: Trigger reset to Factory spec

Not much I can add to that, that's the way I set them, they all get a bump test, and if I thought there was a problem, I would maybe look at doing them differently, but up to now I've not had any problems... Just to be clear Rog, are you setting later triggers, the ones with the return spring behin...

Re: Trigger reset to Factory spec

At some point I'll check it out but, having just looked at a photo of the trigger with side plate removed, I'm convinced there is only minimal sear engagement. That seems to be borne out by you saying it will fire if the trigger weight is reduced. Anyway, it's not the way I would do it and I'm sure ...

Re: Trigger reset to Factory spec

Easy enough to sort, take the trigger cover plate off, then push the top sear up, this cocks the trigger, back out the second stage screw, then turn first stage in until it fires then back out a bit, push top sear up again and adjust 2nd stage in until it fires then back that out a bit, having cove...

Re: New Pro-Sport .22 seems low-powered

Unless you know the full previous history it's possible that the old spring wasn't the original. If you checked the number of coils and ends were the same as the new spring it would rule out any chopping of the spring by the owner. If it is a chopped spring the annealing of the end will cause a weak...

Re: Air leaking

I don't know the S200 but the S4/5xx series, if you empty the cylinder completely, you need to cock the trigger to take the hammer away from the firing valve when you fill otherwise the firing valve may not close. It takes up to 50bar in the cylinder to hold the valve shut.

Re: pellet trap/paper target holder.

There are lots of ways of killing the noise but most (carpet, rags, rigid foam, Plumbers Mait, putty, etc.) make lead recovery time-consuming or messy. I now shoot into a target holder hung in a sound-insulated box in my garage; I just happen to have a convenient 30m range through an open door. If y...

Re: TX200 Bipod

I wouldn't fit a bipod on a springer because it interferes with the recoil, which will probably affect accuracy and shout grouping. If you need a rest, use either a bag or a tripod as a support for your hand rather than resting the gun itself.
