    Just got my Impact back from FX USA and it was shooting fine for about 100 shots and then the trigger started going wacky on me. I would pull it back through the 2nd stage and nothing would happen … start to release it and the gun would go off. Hummmm … fired a few more shots and it continued doing the same. A few more shots and I would have to release it all the way off and then pull it a second time and release a second time before it would fire. Haven’t had time to take the trigger apart yet but has anyone else had a problem like this.

    Thanks

    I can’t remember what screw it is.. I know trying to tell how to fix it and don’t know what screw but someone here will say. 
     so its one of the trigger adjustment screws I think the manual may show it but I can’t remember though. 
     But it’s nothing major just some adjusting

    I got it … I guess. I screwed the second stage screw out a little more than 1/2 turn … didn’t touch anything else. It’s firing just like it should. Haven’t got the foggiest idea what the second stage adjustment would have to do with the trigger not firing … but hey, it’s working and I wanted to make the trigger lighter anyway … can’t complain. Safety is working fine also.

    You are lucky. Mine will not fire when set to fire and trigger is pulled. Put the safety on and as soon as you switch from Safe to Fire the Impact fires without touching the trigger. VERY dangerous design flaw.

    Sooo are you not going to send it in to be worked on? Is it still under warranty?

    Mine just started doing this. I need to talk to them first because I’d like to understand internally what is going on to make it do this. Then I do plan on sending it in and hoping they can fix it and get it back to me soon. If this was a firearm that was behaving this badly the manufacturer would have already issued a recall alert and would fix the problem for free, warranty or not.

 you have nothing wrong with your gun. There is a topic already posted about your problem and just like the OP it’s just the trigger adjustment screws!

    Are you honestly trying to make the case that there is nothing wrong or dangerous with these Impact trigger and safety design flaws? No gun should ever go off when the safety switch is moved. EVER! This is an extremely bad trigger design flaw that needs to be fixed and replaced by the manufacturer at their cost. Period. End of discussion.

    Whooa!
    once again it’s fine. 
    send it to ernest for a month to adjust that set screw for you! Lol what part do think is broke? What would the manufacturer replace?  I’m not saying it should happen but your playing it out to be a huge flaw in the impact and that’s not the case. Have even looked into the problem at all?? I assume not. 
    its adjustable always a chance of something loosening up.
     
    I get it dangerous. But how is it a extremely bad trigger?  Definitely probably one of best triggers I felt.

     let me tell how it would get fixed sending it back to the dealer. They first check to see if its actually miss firing. Then the service guy will say huh let me tighten this here set screw for the trigger adjustment.  Them bam your gun is back working just like it did before but probably with a little loctite or something. 
      SO YES IM SAYING YOUR TRIGGER IS 1000% FINE!!  Just adjust that damn screw 

    Maybe you just dont know how to turn an Allen wrench??  It’s very easy turn it left to loosen, turn right to tighten..

    DeadEyeDill, you keep attempting to justify the unjustifiable. Yes this is a serious and dangerous design flaw in the Impact trigger group that should have never been allowed to leave the factory. This is an issue that can easily cause serious bodily injury or death. Are you sure you want to keep being on the wrong side of this issue? Do you also support hand grenades that go off before their pin is pulled? How about semi-auto rifles that suddenly fire in full auto mode? I took my Impact in to a local gunsmith and he adjusted the said screw from one extreme to the other with no change or improvement. Impact still discharges without pulling the trigger, simply moving the selector switch from Safe to Fire results in a discharge. Quote from gunsmith. “Jesus Fucking Christ, these guys have one Hell of a lawsuit coming to them if this is the way their guns function.”

    you may have changed my mind with the fact the gunsmith said it’s not right. But at the same time everyone else with this problem was fixed by the set screw. You may have something different going on.
     
    I’m definitely not trying to sound like I’m defending the manufacturer because I am 100% a believer that they have the worst QC  in high end air rifles.  But if it worked fine when new then that’s not the problem. 

    I do agree it shouldn’t do that and probably should have said in the first post. 
     
    What screw did the Smith adjust? Are sure it was the right one? I think it the very back one.  Is he a reputable airgun smith? Not trying to be smart with this so take that the wrong way.
     Maybe you have new problem that only a few rifles have. Have you talked to ernest rowe or your supplier? 
     I’m curious to what could actually be wrong if not the screws.  Let us know when you figure it out

    The only time that any amount of adjustment won’t fix your trigger is if you have a bent cocking pin.

    If that’s ok start by winding the safety out so it isn’t working of interfering with the trigger at all. Then make your adjustments to first and second stage to get it the way you want. Lastly screw your safety screw in bit by bit till it does it’s job. 
    Before you screw safety out it usually is locktite and my need some heat.
