I had trouble cocking it the other day and thought maybe I had broken the spring. Tried a few more times and it seemed fine. So today I took it apart (1st time I've disassembled a 97), checked and the spring was fine so put it back together and now I can't uncock it. The trigger seems to be blocked until I return the lever to the closed position. Ideas?
...I don't see any way the trigger CAN be pulled when the under lever is unlatched because there is a little sprung safety device that slides rearward and interferes with the trigger during cocking.
So, am I missing something? I am sure I used to be able to un-cock the gun. Maybe it was malfunctioning before and the safety device was hung up until I took the gun apart. I am no expert on air gun repair, but I have had my share of HW's apart to rebuild....just never an under lever.
Someone with experience with these please weigh in and set my mind straight.
