Is there a button above for doing that, or do I have to code it myself?

I went to anther forum to use the button, as GTA does not have one.

This forum then added an extra http, that had to be removed before the link worked - should work now.  The one you quoted was still in the debugging process...

Have added a blue font variant. Just quote it to see what is in it (why does that sound familiar :) )

It works, Dennis.

Now, if you are concerned with displaying overly long text strings, find a way to compress that impressive list of airguns, into one word :)

I've been waiting for someone to make a remark about that, and I've been trying to think of where I can compile and link it to. Maybe I'll make a folder on postimage just for that, but then I have to label each pic as to what gun it is.

Thanks for pushing me on that.

I fixed it. See below.

Ah heck with it.


This is easier.

Sorry, I am too late, but here is a solution; if you still have that list saved somewhere:


EDIT,  You got it done!

No worries. Couldn't preview or test my profile so had to go back and forth, editing and such. Read above couple posts and see what I did.

Thanks for the help.  :D

I feel so much cleaner now.

Apparently the crooked front sight still hasn't been fixed.  My 46 that was made in 1998 had a crooked sight.  I just slid the sight forward a bit.  Just loosen the sight, flip the gun over on a flat surface so it's resting on the front and rear sigths, snug down the front sight screw.  Presto, front sight perfectly indexed to the rear. 

No obvious loss of accuracy.

Finished my grips.... for now.  Now itís time to shoot and stop messing with it.

I moved the trigger blade back but, boy, was that little screw tough to get to turn.  I ended up using some penetrating oil and heat to move it.  I boogered it up pretty bad in the process.  Iíll do some cleanup on it later or do as Dennis has suggested and replace it with an Allen head screw.

I replaced the set screw (4mm) on my front sight housing today. I thought at first I might have to grind it to more of a point than it had (it has a sort of hollow point) thinking that it wouldn't seat into the dimple, but it did, and I guess I'm one of the lucky ones in that it locked in straight.

But I also had a thought as I was tightening it. Couldn't you just grind the end of the screw flat so that the end sort of spanned over the offset dimple? That way you could set it in place straight. I would think that it would still have enough holding power to keep the housing in place...???

Don't feel too bad.  I tried to get mine loose, gouged it, and gave up.  And this with a proper hollow ground screw driver...

I dropped some Blaster on both sides of the screw and in between the split in the trigger blade with a Q-tip soaked with the stuff.  I let it sit for a few minutes and then used a lighter to heat the screw up ever so slowly.  When I thought that I had enough heat on it I really had to apply torque to it but it did twist.  I actually did the damage before I resorted to the oil and heat.  I too used a proper hollow ground screw driver and still boogered it up.
