Glad to hear you are getting better. Bronchitis will sure sap your energy.
At least, glue on the inside surface of the slotted will be invisible and undoable.
Magnet doesn’t have to touch the sliding piece. As the sliding rod guide gets close to the magnet gets close to the magnet, the guide is pulled off axis towards the magnet. Increased friction between the guide piece and the barrel is what actually does the hold on my setup. It is just enough to keep open with the gun the horizontal position, but not pointed downward. Magnet never directly touches any moving parts.
Upperlight, Review Uncle Hoots installation instructions in this thread and all will be good. Putting the lever parts upside down causes the problem you are experiencing, particularly the cam. I would die-assemble and follow Hoots instructions step by step. Hope this helps! :4:
just make sure that during the forward stroke the brass bit into the pellet probe screws into, never comes out of the action.
FYI it comes out the furthest when you go 90% of the forward motion, then it retracts again.
obviously there should be no other alignement problems present right
if it does come out, it would hit the magazine, not helping things. then the plastic cylinder needs turning on the barrel,the one into the cocking rod screwed in (or the sidelever now)
