Taipan standard .22 is cocked .and will not discharge. Any ideas as for why, your input is needed. Thank’s in advanceJuly 20, 2018 at 6:51 pm #275731
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.July 20, 2018 at 7:48 pm #275734
happened to me once – when I screwed in my HST all athe way – gun wouldn’t cock.July 20, 2018 at 7:58 pm #275735
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.July 21, 2018 at 12:00 am #275740
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.
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?July 21, 2018 at 12:51 am #275744
I’ve been using these way before Edgun Brian recomended the RC hobbie type, it’s good value.

Thank’s again Greg, got them ordered will be here Sunday. Gotta love Amazon.July 21, 2018 at 6:29 am #275747
I second the Bondhus. I’ve got the driver set in both standard and metric. Good stuff that is inexpensive.July 21, 2018 at 6:50 am #275748
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.

Would have the L keys but already have these on hand…July 25, 2018 at 3:07 pm #275789
All was good with the trigger linkage, I do not think that it is cocked after all. So what’s next ?July 25, 2018 at 6:12 pm #275790
So, the shear is not engauged with the hammer spring compressed ?July 25, 2018 at 8:03 pm #275791
Judging by a post way back when I am thinking the same. Will check it later, thank’s Greg.
