    .

    Cocked and will not release the hammer or cocked and releases the hammer but no air is expelled out of the barrle ?

    What did you do last to the gun ?
    Did you loosen the 4 frame hex bolts ?

    Hey Greg was nice to see you reply. Did nothing since the last time I shot it and it was spot on. This my go to gun for pesting around the house. last evening went to dispatch a problem at the birdbath, was sure I had the safety off and nothing. So double check and the safety is working. And like the prepost states the it is cocked I believe but the trigger goes all the way back and nothing. When I tried cocking thinking it wasn’t the lever goes all the way back like it is already cocked. Hope this helps.

    Ain’t done nothing but took the stock off thinking linkage came undone. It was completely encased and I am not about to disassemble so I put the stock back on.

    Hum …….. Okay, I see.

    Yes it does sound like the trigger rod/linkage slipped out of the clamp down on the receiver side.
    The gun is in an unsafe condition, be safe and keep the muzzle pointed clear line to a pellet trap.
    Wear safety glass or a full face shield !

    Remove the action from the stock and remove the trigger group cover, keep the action laying on it’s right side till the cover is replaced.
    Careful the gun might fire, loosen the small trigger rod hold down hex screw.

    To loosen I placed a Alan key to hold the bracket from rotating/in position.
    You should see the trigger move forwards then re-tighten the hold down screw.

    To tighten a larger Allen key on the top of the bracket.

    Be careful and fire the cambered pellet out to make the gun safe.
    Do not re-cock the gun yet !

    Loosen the trigger rod hold down screw again.
    Move the trigger to the position in which you can engage the safety, this is when the trigger blade doesn’t move forward or back when holding the rod still.
    With the safety engaged re-tighten the hold down screw.
    Test cock, remove the gun out of safety and fire.

    Hey thanks Greg, I’ll check that out. I removed the pellet with a cleaning rod, but will still maintain a safe work ethic. Ineed some quality allen wrenches, any recommendations?

    I’ve been using these way before Edgun Brian recomended the RC hobbie type, it’s good value.

    Thanks Bizill,

    Good deal I’m sold on them drivers to, added them to my list.
    One thing I like about the L type is the added leverage it has on the shorter end when you need it.

    All was good with the trigger linkage, I do not think that it is cocked after all. So what’s next ?

    So, the shear is not engauged with the hammer spring compressed ?

    Judging by a post way back when I am thinking the same. Will check it later, thank’s Greg.
