Re: Moving to Facebook

I'm in the No camp, only because many people have dumped facebook because of all the breaches of data protection and the fact that the harvested data has been used for targeted use. It worries me that totally unknown to us that our links to one another can be grouped and in some cases used against u...

Discovery Optics VT-3 6-24X50 FFP Rifle Scope

Having had a bit of a disaster on a shoot last Friday (Seal Failure), I ended up chatting with a newfound friend at the range and I tried several of his rifles, so the day wasn't wasted :D What I did learn from this experience is that the scope makes one hell of a difference, up until now I have bee...

Re: AA S410 Magazine

It looks like the o’ring Isn’t seating onto the carrier and is sitting too proud. Take the o’ring off and then try it. BBF Ok Guys, Thanks for your assistance on this one, it was the o-ring in the new mag, as suggested I removed the o-ring, tested and it was perfect, so I stripped and reassembled a...

What's it like without the mag fitted?
It's perfect with either No Mag or with the Old Mag Fitted bearing in mind I fitted a new o-ring in the old mag yesterday.

Re: AA S410 Magazine

Hi Roger, It is a .22 and I am using Bisley Magnum Pellets. I tried your suggestion above with the new mag but to no avail, just out of interest I have just tried the action with no pellets in the mag and I experience the same issue; ie the last 7mm of the bolt requires noticeably more pressure to p...

Re: AA S410 Magazine

OK, I fitted a new o-ring to the old yellow-faced mag, but no change, so I removed the faceplate again and reamed the hole with a fine 6mm reamer and it's now perfect. So I'm left with a problem with the new clear-faced mag and I wonder if the problem is that the mag isn't fitting properly and hence...

Re: AA S410 Magazine

Thanks Guys,

The old mag is a yellow-faced one that came with the rifle, whereas the new one (eBay) is a clear-faced one, I have some spare o-rings so I'll replace the one in the old mag, not forgetting the plastic bag trick.

AA S410 Magazine

Hi All, Being new back to shooting and having retrieved my AA S410 out of the loft, I found the magazine a little difficult to load. The problem seems to be that when inserting pellets into the magazine that they don't easily drop in and that I need to use another pellet to push it in so that I can ...
