    After clearing a pellet jam in my BSA r10 se the rifle won’t fire, have made sure Helpthe barrel is clear and there is plenty of air, the rifle cocks but does not respond when pulling the trigger.
    Any suggestions guys?

    The dramatic power loss probably caused the pellet jam. Usually does.
    Striker or firing valve or regulator or breech seal etc. Will have to work through the lot.

    By the way, you say it cocks but does not "respond". Presumably then, you hear the sear releasing the striker and maybe hitting something?
    Does it sound the usual healthy clonk, but no aif release? If so the striker is probably OK and the valve is stuck. If its a fairly pathetic click it could have been contaminated with oil or something.
    If nothing at all is heard then suspect trigger sear does not release the striker and readjust trigger.
    Follow similar logic to follow through the rest of the trigger-sear-striker-firingvalve-regulator-aircylinder system (would look good in German)

    unscrew the trigger unit and pull the striker back by hand, release it and what happens?

    Hi
    It’s gone back to BSA as almost brand new and under warranty the gone thinks there are shards of pellet in the trigger unit?

    What do BSA do to resolve it if it keeps occurring

    I had a Super 10 that shaved some makes of pellet with the magazine. Had to find pellets that worked with the magazine.
