Re: Tx woes

Mine did the same when I fitted a longer latch rod, it turned out that the new rod had a slightly different profile when compared to the original, as I don't have a lathe I just put the latch rod in my cordless drill and used wet n dry till the profiles matched, fired ok after that.

Re: Forest green touch up

As far as I'm aware all the superlight stocks are made from poplar regardless of colour Peter.
It is very easily damaged though.

Re: Forest green touch up

Interesting thoughts BillyWhizz and thanks for your experience with refinishing your stock. I would love to give it a go but without any experience in stock refinishing I would rather have a practice at something that didn't matter first, especially as I am not sure how well Poplar takes stain compa...

Re: Forest green touch up

I take your point about the lacquer removal Peter, there is a guy on the "airgunforum" that refinishes stocks, I may get in touch with him and let him do it.

Yes, I had thought of erring on the side of caution, in today's climate knowing my luck the Swatt squad would be paying a visit within 5 minutes.

Re: Forest green touch up

Thanks Peter
Yes that's a good idea re model shop, it is indeed the green stained stock that looks transparent.
If I can't find anything I may end up doing the whole stock a different colour as I now prefer the brown stocks instead of the green.

Forest green touch up

Hi all I've got a S510TC with the superlight stock in forest green, while it's a nice stock it is also very soft and easily damaged. I have been in touch with both AA and Minelli with no success as to what stain or lacquer they use so that I can get some for touching up. Anybody know of anything tha...

Re: S410 TDR AT Pin

I did it the tenmetrepeter way apart from using a torq key instead of a hex key.
The anti tamper screw is m3x6, I replaced mine with a m3x6mm round headed m3x6 hex screw.
