I would check the rear velocity adjuster … unscrew it and make sure the hammer ( rear of it ) can freely slide in & out of the adjusters guide hole.
If the hammer had wedged itself / seized into the adjuster cap ? there is whats holding it from firing.September 5, 2018 at 1:09 pm #276137
Hello again , tried removing thre hammer spring adjuster by loosening the allen set screw. Would back out slightly and no more, removed set screw and upon closer inspection there seems to be a nylon dowel that rides in a radius on top side of the adjuster preventing it from being removed. Question is how to remove the nylon dowel. Oh and the hunt is upon here in Wisconsin .September 6, 2018 at 5:15 am #276142
makes no sense … with the small 2mm cinch screw loose on receivers rear left side the Brass HST adjuster should screw right out … THAT IS ?
Unless the hammer is seized into it. If thats the case you will need to remove trigger areas cover plate, pop off the spring holding the reset link and remove the link. This will allow the hammer to be extracted along with the HST adjuster.
It is the REAR MOST link ( Right side of pic )
As too the nylon piece within the HST cinch screw hole ( seen in picture high right side ) … it only presses against the threads of HST adjuster and there is no groove etc it rides within. NOT your problem !!September 29, 2018 at 6:09 am #276299
I wonder if this guy ever got the gun fixed?
and why it was not firing

I have been really wondering if this was ever figured out and fixed also…The trigger assembly on these rifles is the single best assembly on a air rifle built…
This certainly is not the norm for them, very interested in knowing what is the problem with his…October 5, 2018 at 5:34 am #276358
Sometimes its the nut behind the wheel.
I know when to send a gun in for repairs ,

Hey sorry fella’s for not getting back. Mutant is still down need to get at hammer and spring for it is cocked and can trip sear . haven’t been able to get adjuster out. Greg says one turn out push adjuster in and repeat with caution. It;s been awhile any new PCP’s ?May 16, 2019 at 4:19 pm #277175
Oh by the way iride it is probable about the nut ! Might have to ship out , any recomends on repairs .May 18, 2019 at 3:32 am #277179
I would go with the dealer of the Taipan, Give Tony a call at T.A.G and see what he recommends,
I would go for a full Tune replace all O rings and polish the rough edges,

Back out your Hammer Spring Tension knob.

Update on none working Mutant. Sent to Charlie at Georgia Airguns, gets it calls me and says nothing is wrong with it. He claims it is fine. So did something in shipping transit cause it to come unjammed ? What the Fook?June 19, 2019 at 5:34 am #277257
Wow thats pretty strange, I would still have him change out all orings and give it a tune , Not sure what it would cost , But I know shipping is not cheap.I used to send new guns to Earnest and tell him to change out O rings and give it a tune, Its still shooting good after seven years,

Hammer spring got backed out during shipping.
If the hammer spring is in too far, the gun will not cock. Even 1/8th turn can make a difference. Bouncing around in a UPS/FedEx truck did the trick.

Hey Fella’s thanks for the feed back ! If it should happen again I will package it up real good and throw it the dryer with no heat.
