    morni g all, just a quick question

    I’m swapping out my standard HFT500 stock for the Aeron version from sureshot and was wondering about the trigger guard

    Can I swap over the original guard or does anyone know where I can get a suitable replacement

    Cheers

    You use the original trigger guard pal, the whole action just lifts out of the original stock and drops right into the new one,

    Cheers, will try that

    I’m going to sell the original stock and Air Arms hamster, does the missing trigger guard matter when selling?

    For what it's worth ... don't hurry to sell the HFT 500 stock. I did a season with the ACZ Ultra stock but finally moved back to the original stock having received some pointers from Neil Wakelin (top shot) regarding floating the action out of the stock, and that made a notable different to consistency. Changing the butt pad also improved things for me. The ACZ Ultra stock isn't bad, in fact I'm now using it with an AS400 in .22, I'm just saying hold on to the original HFT500 stock for a while if you can, just to make sure ...

    Are they worth the money, I would say yes but on the top side I don’t think I’d of paid more!

    Floating in the original stock: try to slide a thin piece of paper (£5 note) between the air reservoir and the stock, if it can't slide virtually all the way back then take the action out of the stock and remove excess wood using dremel / sandpaper etc, a bit at a time until there is clearance all the way back. Fine finish it and seal the wood. but check from time to time in case things have settled or expanded.

    And yes, [QUOTE="miketowler, [/QUOTE] the Aeron stock does indeed give you a floated action.
