    Default Tuning / Fixing : Help Please

    :1zhelp
    I have on of these rifles...

    Stop saying "you poor bastard "!!! I know it suck, but that is what I have to shoot for now. At least it can still take out a rat or a pigeon.

    Problem is that it seems like the sear is not engaging properly, making it hard to cock and a bit unpredictable when shooting. I mean I always wanted a lighter trigger on this rifle, but not the way it is now. If you touch that trigger it fires.

    According to some guys on the Chinese Airgun Forum it can be tuned etc. and apparently they are fairly usefull afterwards.

    :dunno Now here it the problem... when it come to that type of stuff, I SUCK. I have never opened one of these before. I suppose I can try, but don't have the equipment.

    Any help or advise will be appreciated. :bowdown

    You can try this site: http://www.charliedatuna.com for some reasonably detailed descriptions of how to go about stripping and tuning a springer. Whether it would apply directly to your rifle is another question. You can also send Charlie an e-mail with detail of your rifle - he may be able to help. He does reply fairly quickly. I think the bottom line is just to approach the job carefully and in a structured manner. You should not need too many tools. Good luck!

    I stripped the whole rifle down this weekend (about 8 times) and couldn?t find anything wrong. The machining on this gun suck. There is not 1 smooth surface in that gun. :thumbsdown

    I smoothed up every thing inside, now the whole action is smooth etc. Feels like a new rifle. Only problem is, it still won't work.
    When you test the stripped down trigger mechanism, it seems to work fine. Assembled, without the spring, the trigger mechanism seems to work like it should.
    But as soon as you put that spring back and assemble the thing it doesn't want to work anymore.
    :dunno

    Please guys I need help here, this is the only rifle I have. Any ideas not involving buying a new one?

    Not a very good idea, but try a weaker spring.

    &| ...and how will that help me ?

    The rifle used to work with that same spring. You see, that is the worst part. I didn't fiddle with it and then it stopped working, it just happened.

    Eish
    Farmer can you make a drawing of the sear and trigger assembly and send it. I am the frien of a friend who understands the mechanics of springer air rifles and he might be able to provide advice on getting it to work again

    The passwords aren't there to protect anything, it is to keep people from telling me they "accidentally" clicked on the link at work and his boss was standing right behind him at the time. At least now I can tell him :tonguefawk because he made effort to get in there.
