Re: Shortening the first stage of trigger

I agree with Rog, and I also wouldn't recommend shortening what is a safety feature. You know you can back off from a shot and release stage 1, and be sure that the sears go back to where they started. You're also not going to bump off a shot. But if you really want to with the old chassis, and you ...

Re: happy independence day ya filthy animals...

At least you get to vote for your president. Ours gets decided in a Brussels conclave. And you know your president's name. Mind you they have something in common, yours believes passionately in the United States of America and the US army, ours believes passionately in the United States of Europe an...

Re: Air Arms S400F Carbine .177

Clear o ring grease ?? That may be silicone grease. It must be proper black petroleum based moly grease like Abbey or Bisley. Silicone grease will ruin metal to metal surfaces. It isnt “slippery” as we said in our tribology course.

Re: Air Arms S400F Carbine .177

I presume you have at least applied moly grease to the bolt and worked it in? It’s a monthly task IMO.

Re: Air Arms S400F Carbine .177

I like those chefs brûlée torches. Tiny little pointy flame. Or soldering iron direct on the brass.
If its green loctite it can be heat resisting.

... unless the bad loading is due to ill fitting brassware .

Yes the brass should not be loctited into the body. Thought you were going to free that off?

Re: Air Arms S400F Carbine .177

Tight doesn't mean airtight. If the brass is not loctited to the barrel theres a small air escape route downwind of the breech seal. May not be a significant air loss.

Re: Air Arms S410 Carbine - Randomosity

I would have polished the hsmmer rail with brasso and kept it either dry or with dri-slide dry moly treatment. If the variation is vertical only then hammer rail or piwer can be a cause. If it’s all over the place then try without the moderator first of all then check the mag isn't clipping pellets....

Re: Air Arms S400F Carbine .177

Welcome Keith. Good writeup - you can stay 👍

Richard, brassware loose on barrel but stuck in block may also be leaky and lose some power. If you use heat remember the o rings under there - you’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off :mrgreen:
