    Question Airsporter Mark II Trigger Block Query

    Okay chaps, not my gun, but.......

    We had a new admin lady start recently and it turns out that her hubby is "into" airguns.

    He popped in today so, naturally, we got talking.

    Turns out he's had many over the years and used to shoot FT at Anston with a PCP.

    He recently acquired some cheapies from a farmhouse clearout and, amongst them, is a Mark II Airsporter. On stripping it, the threaded section of the trigger block came adrift and got stuck in the cylinder. He has managed to remove it from the cylinder now.

    How difficult would a replacement be to come by? I had a quick look at work on the John Knibbs site, where they're listing ones for the later guns. And also on the Protek site. Looks like the latter may have had one recently that was sold. I suggested that he maybe ring them, tell them that he's after one and leave his details.

    Any other suggestions from the learned gentlemen of this section?

    As in, other possible sources?

    Or does anyone have one going spare or know the whereabouts?

    Thank you in advance, gentlemen.

    I asked him if he thought it could be thus repaired, Donald, and he didn't think so.

    Maybe, at a guess, as the threaded section is goosed? I'll ask him again and put this to him, thank you.

    Hi Tone

    The trigger blocks with their guts MK1/2/3/4/5/6 will interchange. --- I've just built up a bitsa using a MK2 cylinder/piston and MK6 back block and trigger assembly.

    The big question is what part does your mate need as the threaded section just bolts to the back block with a hollow bolt.
    The threaded section needs to be set in the correct position so that the back block aligns with the cocking lever slot when tightened.

    I'll check out what spares Back blocks I have.



    All the best Mick

    Yep, keep that man looking, Donald!

    Did you mention a while back that it's the June Bash you were hoping to get to, Donald?

    Or the one in a few weeks' time?

    Mick, as ever, that's absolutely brilliant information and fantastic news!

    Knibbs seemingly stock the ones for the later guns, so that should sort it?

    His wife is now off until Monday and I can give him the good news then.

    And, of course, if you do have any spare that are surplus to requirements, just shout up with what you would need for it.


    Thanks again, you're a God!

    Tone, ref Micks post.. the threaded section just bolts onto the rear block. It's not one piece. So which bit is actually goosed, or has the bolt just come undone (much more likely) ?
    I'm currently looking for: a .22 / .20 Theoben gasram barrel, at least 10" long (not a fenman barrel). Thanks.

    Cheers for that, Jon.

    Yep, deduced that from Mick's post.

    I'll have to speak to the chap again and ask, but I'm guessing that the threaded part will have got damaged when he removed it (not sure how he got it out).

    I probably won't get to talk to him until after the weekend, unless one of the other chaps at work can get a message to him or his wife.

    And I'll ask him to look in on the thread.

    Mentioned the April Bash, too, which he seemed to like the idea of.

    That'll be absolutely brilliant, Donald, and I / we will very much look forward to seeing you all.

    I have sent Tony some images of a MK2 Airsporter trigger block in its dis assembled form. It may help to establish what is required to repair or replace.

    It is a smart design; as Mick mentioned it allows the trigger block to be indexed for correct alignment with the cocking slot.
    A very handy function when changing out trigger blocks.

    A PM has been sent to you Tony.

    Wanted: rear sight for Milbro Diana MK4, the slide elevation type. Or images to replicate from.

    Right then Tone.

    I don't have a complete trigger unit spare, but if you fail to find one I have enough parts to rebuild your mate's.

    Just bring the cylinder and back block to the Bash and I'll build one out of two and align it to the cylinder for you FOC.




    All the best Mick
