That would work fine. In fact I have used Tippex on a front blade with some degree of success. It is a nice bright white and comes off easily too.

Humbrol model Paris are good too.

A cocktail sick leaves a nice dot.

Kind regards,

I use watch and clock oilers like these:

as I find they are a little more precise. But that is just me. Nothing wrong with a cocktail stick.

Thanks, I have recently acquired a Gamo Compact, and it was useful to read this. I tried a longer screw, but doesn't this adjustment just take up the first-stage "slack" in the trigger movement? And if you continue to screw in, the sears is pushed back, eventually to the point where you can't cock the gun at all.

What I've now done is to lengthen/weaken the short spring in order to reduce the trigger pressure, and I've also added a little grease to the sears. I haven't yet filed and polished the moving parts, but this does sound worthwhile.

Thoughts?
