This is the izh 513m .177 rifle. It’s brand new. I am not sure as of what to do and the hammer want budge and the trigger won’t pull. The barrel has no tension and it won’t go up like its supposed to. I shot it a few times before and it worked.
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
This could be a factory safety that the hammer and trigger do not move while in the cocked position. The barrel may be locking down purposely. Look near the spring or in the path of the barrel where it folds back up and look for a release button. What do you see?

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Dry firing PCP or CO2 air rifles will usually be completely safe, as there isn`t a piston to worry about. You`re simply releasing a short spurt of air/CO2 to force the pellet up the barrel.
The barrel of this type of air rifle is hinged, which allows the rifle to “break.” Breaking the barrel down will first cock the rifle by “searing up” (pulling back) the piston. This allows you to load the breech with the pellet before lifting up the barrel to close the action.
An air rifle recoils differently than a normal rifle, and will actually recoil forwards after the initial backwards recoil. This force is not taken into mind with normal rifle scopes, so the forward recoil will tear most rifle scopes apart.
An added security measure is to use a trigger lock. This device ensures that your air rifle cannot be fired even if it is not locked in a cabinet. One thing to remember is to keep the keys to your lock or gun cabinet in a secure place, not on top of the gun cabinet or in the locks.
You should never ever dry fire a gas or spring piston air gun. The violent piston impact with no resistance could absolutely damage it.
The only things needed to get started shooting a break barrel air rifle is the rifle, some pellets, and a shooter. That`s it. No pumps, no tanks, no gear– just the bare essentials.
Most shooters find a limit of around 20-30 yards for hunting consistently, however, some accurately hunt beyond 50 yards with “springers”.
A . 177 air rifle is likely to shoot around 40 to 60 yards, up to 100. This depends on the brand of pellet, the conditions of the day and your shooting stance.
In a review of experimental studies, DiMaio concluded that the critical velocity for penetration of human skin by an air gun pellet was between 38 and 70 m/sec (125–230 ft/sec).
Snipers zero their weapons at a target range or in the field. This is the process of adjusting the scope so that the bullets` points-of-impact are at the point-of-aim (centre of scope or scope`s cross-hairs) for a specific distance.
THE AIR GUN MUST BE UNCOCKED AND UNLOADED

It is critically important that your air gun is not loaded or cocked when transporting in public. Even a cleaning pellet left in the gun can be classified as “a loaded weapon”, so don`t take this one (or any of these) lightly!

Air weapons should be stored out of sight and separately from pellets. Air weapons should be covered, for example in a gun slip, when being transported. Air weapons must not be stored where unauthorised people, particularly young people under the age of 18, might gain access to them.
Air rifles don`t have residues caused by burning powder like rifles do. That means the barrels don`t foul up or require cleaning. If you want to run something through the barrel, use a good quality bore-cleaning rope. Clean and lubricate the external metal parts to avoid corrosion.
What we have always recommended for new spring or gas piston air rifles is a break-in period of at least 150 shots. Some rifles will be good to go with 100 shots and still some might require 200 shots to get settled in. During this time, don`t shoot for accuracy.
At close range, projectiles from many BB and pellet guns, especially those with velocities greater than 350 fps, can cause tissue damage similar to that inflicted by powder-charged bullets fired from low-velocity conventional firearms.
Barrel break in can be one of the most important and most misunderstood aspects of extracting the utmost accuracy from your rifle. Proper barrel break-in will smooth the bore of your barrel to create better consistency and accuracy.
If the seal is leather, oiling with 5 drops once a month is not too much or too often. If it`s synthetic, you can oil it once every 6 months with regular use or once every 1,000 shots.
For sighting at long range with iron sights, we recommend shooting from 50 yards away from your target.
Most deaths from an air weapon injury are caused by intracranial penetration by the pellet. What makes this presentation of disease reportable? Penetration of the myocardium with an air rifle rarely occurs. Most deaths happen after the pellet enters the cranium.
Pellet guns come in both rifle and pistol varieties — with rifles typically providing the most accuracy and power. Additionally, pellet guns are generally considered to be more accurate in a pellet gun vs BB gun scenario due to their rifled barrels and aerodynamic pellet shapes.
The . 22 Caliber wins as a clean sweep for the best squirrel hunting caliber, even if the . 177 might be a little more accurate or quieter at times, the Gamo technology behind a . 22 caliber can be deadly, quiet, and extremely accurate!
177 caliber steel BB can pierce the skin and break glass. Never fire them at anything you don`t intend to shoot.
Our number one pick for . 177 airguns is the Air Arms TX200. This fixed barrel, underlever cocking airgun is extremely versatile and delivers hunting power with bench rest accuracy. Built by AirArms out of England, the TX200 is made by folks with an absolute passion for the sport of airgunning.
Good pellet velocity data

Any extra air behind the pellet at the muzzle can give you accuracy issues. A safe and proven speed range for shooting a pellet is between 850 fps and 910 fps.

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve bnut I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
Mar 12, 2010 – I have a 3/4hp flotec convertible jet pump. It is able to hold 30lbs pressure on the discharge side as the primie easily for 24 hours. It is not able to pull water from the well whcih has been here for years. i disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling watrer. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.

I want to adjust the trigger pull on my Remington Model Five. i want to shoot benchrest 22 and i want to have the pull as easy and smooth as i can.
ANSWER : Here is a link to the detailed disassembly instructions for the Remington Model 5 rifle included exploded view parts diagrams:

http://www.gunreports.com/special_reports/long_guns/Remington-Rimfire-Rifle-Maintenance171-1.html

In order to smooth out the trigger pull, you would have to gently stone and polish the trigger / firing pin contact point without altering their engagement angles.

Here is a link to a short video showing a technician stoning / polishing the trigger contact point on a hand gun. This is merely to demonstrate the polishing process and how little stoning is required to make a difference.

Good luck.

Joe.

My basketball hoop broke and I have a pole cemented in the ground. Can you buy just the hoop/backboard itself and attach to the pole or do I have to cut the pole and start over?
ANSWER : Sorry I know nothing about basketball but it seems a crying shame to cut down the pole even if you can’t find a replacement hoop and board.

I have faced many similar things and I find remembering the wise old saying “in order to get the right answer it is important to first ask the right question”…

I suggest you ask around those who should know such things – the coach at the local schools, local teams. If you don’t get satisfaction then why not ask your local repair shop or fabricator if they can make what you need at a reasonable cost.

The following is Wisner’s rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.
