    Just another tip Gary, when you go to put the two small pins and spring back in for the safety, the pins have a flat end and a slightly conical end. The conical ends go either end of the spring, I found if you put them in the other way you can’t compress them enough to slip the little pin in at the end.

    Also, once you have them in, before you put the small end pin through that holds them in place, you have to push the cocking lever back a tiny bit more for the bottom pin to drop into place.

    Hope this helps, sorry for the phone number cock up ( insert red face here ! )

    Thanks for your help and advice Norm.
    I've managed to get the dint out of the sleeve by inserting a long 14mm socket inside and tapping it back to shape on the outside with a hammer.

    Norm, you didn't go on at all. The information you gave me was really helpful and it was enlightening hearing about your engineering past.
    I managed to undo the trigger screw, and as you say, removing 2 spring washers has Improved the feel no end (an extended thank you to Jon). I've dressed that shocking spring (I've not gone to town on it as I'm waiting for a TbT Maxi Pro kit).
    It now feels a lot smoother to cock with a bit of Bumslide in there. It is very consistent over the chrony at around 10ft/lb.
    Now I've had it apart with your help I'm sure it will be a lot easier next time.
    The next thing I'll be looking at is that articulated cocking arm, it's quite loose.
    Once again, thanks for your help Norm.

    The piston seal is quite a tight fit but I'm frightened of taking too much off it. I have had a little play in the garage and I must say that now the trigger feels quite nice. I'm going to take it to the club with me in the morning and see what it's like over 25yds.
    The next thing is to fit The TbT Maxi Pro kit in and have a look at stiffening the cocking arm a little then it should be all done.
