fettling gamo compact trigger

Postby micawber » Sat May 04, 2013 11:37 am

Well guys I finally finished fettling my gamo compact trigger, First I striped down the trigger mechanism smoothed and polished all the moving parts with a fine file and finished with 1200 grit wet and dry (the surfaces were pretty rough) then assembled it all with a touch of molly grease on the moving parts, I kept the original springs, I then replaced the trigger adjusting screw with a longer one from a light switch wall cover, (the original screw is 12mm long the new screw is 14mm long)  I screwed the new in with the gun cocked but( NOT LOADED) till it went off then backed the screw off 1/2 a turn, the trigger is smooth and much lighter suites me fine. :D  :D  :D

Excellent.

You can note put it to good use in one of our competitions.  :lol:

Pity you didn't take any pics as you went along, as it would have made an interesting and useful guide for others.

Kind regards,

I have threatened for some time to do a tutorial on highlighting or outlining contrasting front and rear sights. I have a colleague whose day job is research and development with luminous/flourescent paints and coatings especially for instruments - including watch markers and hands.
The problem with "flourescent" coatings is that there is never enough ambient light around a sight to properly excite the coatings to any degree. I have also some Tritium tubes and they are great at night - they need nothing to excite them, the Tritium gas is always active.
By far and away the best colour to use is green, this is always the brightest colour. I have had great success using green flourescent paint on the front sight and Orange outlining the U of the rear sight. Another technique is to use a green dot on the front sight and two orange (or green - I prefer a contrasting colour) dots - one on either side of the U on the rear sight.
Ian has bought stuff from ebay before now and used it with success - he will be along shortly to elaborate I am sure.
Meanwhile, I will consider the tuttorial:-)

I’m going off to go find myself. If I’m not back by the time I return, keep me here.

As detailed in the link in the previous post I have experimented with night/daysiter dots and strips from the States. I first came across these when I shot IPAS. Some shooters only used them on the foresight, others used the same colour on foresight and rearsight and some like different colours front and back. I guess its down to what suits your eyes and we are all different. My own preference is to have a green dot on the foresight only if Im going to use them at all.

I think I will try some luminous pant used on fishing floats first just on the front sight, I have white paint on my beeman p17 and it seems to work best when it is on the front sight with the back unpainted.
