As i think,may be i am wrong,I am guessing that a safety lever must overlap the trigger,which was its main function to stop the trigger.

I think it is more of an anti bear trap mechanism than a safety. I also think they were thinking of adding this later when they released the early models because the space to install this mechanism was already provided in the stock.

Added in 11 minutes 36 seconds:
Also it seems they replaced the allen screws on rear sight with screws with knobs to adjust the rear sight. And they choose Poly Ethylene over Teflon for spring guide. The AARMR people told me that the new parts would be sent to me in March. But as per main13 they are not responding to his messages to them about those parts.

Even that gun was capable of reaching super sonic velocities only with the light weight Prometheus Pellets only. At that time that was my dream rifle. But could not afford it then. Now my dream rifle is FX Revolution Semi Auto. Now I can afford it at international prices plus customs duty. But no way of importing one.That is life I think.

Hi sir,

Have you managed to get the FX Revolution air rifle. Saw it on an Indian website for 2.25 lakhs but after negotiation the seller is ready to give it to me for 2.10 lakhs. It is to be purchased as a gift which my uncle is planning to give to my cousin. Can anyone please shed some light if it is a good buy as the cost is very high. Thanks.

Today I received a few replacement parts for my Hurricane. But not the updated Trigger. Molds for the trigger are not ready yet. The new MOD 35T spring, PU Spring guide and new piston seals look good. But the new breach seals suck. See the photos.

They have multiple air pockets in them. They may still work but I think AARMR Sports need to change their plastic parts supplier. I wonder why they simply are not using O rings.

Anyway I am not going to change the power plant components right now since my hurricane is shooting damn good with even the bad trigger even though the trigger is almost hairline now.
Only going to change the breach seal which is leaking air. Will change the trigger when I get it. But change the power plant parts only when the current ones fail.

Regards,
GNV

GNV garu,
I'm no engineer but I was of the opinion that parts for standard triggers were made with cnc machines

Dear BD,
I too didn't understand, but that is what Mr. Manbir Singh told me. May be they are using some kind of synthetic trigger shoe on the previously updated narrow trigger blade. I just don't know. I just have no knowledge about mass manufacturing processes. I am an electronics engineering graduate with a very limited mechanical engineering knowledge which was part of the then B.E degree ( 1977-82 ). I understand machines but have no knowledge of manufacturing processes.

Last time I heard from the AARMR tech, he said he was working on a 'kiddie' (lower powered) version of gun with more accessories like picatinny & 2-stage trigger while the current one will be offered as a 'base' model. I told him him kids don't use scopes nor 2-stage triggers but then they have some strange sayings about punjabi logic..! Also, he seems to have vanished altogether since, leading me to believe that he doesn't feel the need for my inputs any further.. Have pinged him nevertheless, lets see.. ;)

As far as I reckon, they're likely to keep the gun in its current form more or less. Any further accessorization can be negotiated with his elder brother Col. Puri - a nice gentleman he is. I would strongly recommend a Picatinny to handle all that power, but then that's just me! :)

Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods.

depends on what is your time line for DPP and various push & pulls :wink: flavour of the day aside, you can take a plunge buddy.
keep in mind that its always going to be a sub 12fpe air gun(sans the snake oil), just in case.
insist on the smaller earlier spring the new spring has taken the power down instead and messes with the trigger let off.

Out of curiosity, does the loss in power due to the new spring put this behind Scorpius? Because on reading the reviews it seemed that the higher power was the one USP AARMR currently had. (IMO the rather ostentatious stock can't be counted as a selling point right....)

power goes down to mid 8fpe with the new stiff spring that was sent as a upgrade as i was having the very early iteration of the airgun, as per my recent interaction with the Aarmar CTO the internal dimensions of the receiver are same.
the new spring was shoehorned to restore the earlier claimed power of 15fpe.you are right that the stock of Aarmar Hurricane is really not designed well though it very strong whereas deceptively plain looking stock of precihole is a genius if you know what to look for in a stock.
