Today I attempted to fix the trigger on the FWB 124. I decided to disassemble the entire trigger assembly and give it a good cleaning. The trigger is held together by two pins, once these are removed the whole assembly falls out of the trigger housing. You now have a sear, sear safety, front trigger spring and the trigger. The complete unit is very simple and far less complicated than I expected. I cleaned the parts and after about five tries I had the trigger reassembled. I put the rifle back together and was optimistic that the trigger would work properly. Well again it was doing the same thing. At this point I decided to head over to Mac1 airguns and speak with Tim. I met with Tim and explained the problem. This was my first time Meeting Tim at Mac1. Tim was very helpful and he explained a few thing about the trigger and made a few recommendations. The first of which I failed to attempt prior to totally disassembling the trigger. There is a trigger adjustment screw on the trigger that is for adjusting the second stage of travel only. I didn't think to adjust it due to the fact that my problem was with the first stage of travel only. Tim expalined that the screw can be over tightened and cause some binding. The other recommendation was to clean all the parts very well and reassemble carefully. Well knowing that I already did that, I went home with some hope that the trigger adjustment screw adjustment would solve my problems.I went to the back yard with the rifle a tin of pellets and a small screw driver. I backed off the trigger adjustment screw a half turn and the screw was now very loose and sloppy. I cocked and loaded a pellet. As I began to pull the trigger and take up the first stage of travel the rifle fired. Ok thats not good, so I turned the screw back in a 1/4 turn and tried again with the same result. Now I'm starting to think this is a lost cause and I will just have to deal with it. Then I remembered that I purchased a New trigger from Maccari for my other FWB 124 as a back up. Some of the early FWB sporters came with a plastic trigger and Beeman recommended that it should be replaced with a factory metal FWB trigger. Well FWB stopped making parts for this gun a long time ago. But Maccari makes some from time to time and I purchased one for my 124 with a plastic trigger, just in case it ever breaks. I disassembled the rifle again, removed the trigger housing again, and disassembled the trigger again. I installed the new Maccari trigger and reassembled the rifle again. That was it. The trigger functions like new. I never thought the actual trigger was the problem. But after 25 or so years of use I guess something had worn out on the old trigger. I think it had something to do with the threads that the trigger adjustment screw threads into. The screw is very positive, and has no slop. I went Back to Mac1 because Tim said I could use his chronograph when I got the rifle working right. The rifle shoots Beeman silver bear 7.10 grain pellets at 780 fps and JSB 8.4s at 740 fps. I purchased some pellets and lube from Tim and we talked for awhile. Tim also threw in some stock screws for free to replace the old ones. Tim was very nice to deal with very helpful. All my future purchases will be made at his shop. I also changed the c-clamp on the spring compressor. I purchased an 8" clamp made by Husky. The threads are much finer and it doesn't have as much play. This makes the compressor feel more secure, but it wasn't really necessary.Heres a couple new photos.
