Today I clean and lubricate reader Michael’s Walther LGV, This is the first time I have had this powerplant apart. Michael — this is the big reveal!

Setup

I need to tell you some things up front. First, In Part 2 I rated the LGV a 4 for disassembly, where most Weihrauch rifless are 10s and the R9/HW 95 is a 6. After doing this job I will increase my rating of the LGV to a 7 — as long as you use a mainspring compressor. With familiarity that might increase to an 8. And I will also tell you how to disassemble and assemble the LGV without a mainspring compressor.

Next, Michael’s rifle is a 21 joule airgun. For Americans that’s about 15.5 foot pounds. And that is almost what we saw in Part One.  The rating is a liability figure that the airgun should never surpass but could potentially reach. We saw up to 14.17 foot pounds when it was tested as it came back from Umarex USA. But it vibrated horribly. And for those who think I’m complaining about the noise, I apparently didn’t make myself clear. The vibration was felt in the head and hands. It was nasty.

Mainspring Compressor?

Why do you need a mainspring compressor? Perhaps you saw a video on YouTube where a guy took an LGV apart without a compressor. Yeah, you did. That was a lower-powered LGV whose mainspring was not under a lot of preload. The 21-joule mainspring is preloaded with about an inch and a quarter of compression. I would guess that is roughly about 100 pounds of force. When I get into disassembly I’ll tell you how to do it safely without a compressor, but you will need a helper.

Let’s begin

The first step is to remove the barreled action from the stock. That’s 4 Allen screws. With the barreled action out of the stock you are ready to remove the trigger group, spring guide and mainspring. If you’re by yourself as I was, a mainspring compressor is a must. The LGV fits into the compressor very well and all I had to do was put a flat block of wood against the rear of the trigger assembly so the compressor could push the assembly in just a bit. That takes the tension off the two crosspins that hold the trigger assembly inside the spring tube and once the tension is off they slide right out. No hammering is necessary like it is on a Weihrauch rifle. These pins are a couple thousandths smaller than the holes they pass through. If you are by yourself you can adjust the compressor slightly to just take the tension off the pins. 

How to disassemble without a mainspring compressor

To disassemble without a mainspring compressor, set the trigger end of the barreled action on a strong workbench and press down with around 100 pounds of pressure. Have a partner press out both crosspins with a pin punch. Once you get the tension off by pressing down, those pins slip right out. Can you do this by yourself? I suppose some guys can, but it’s way beyond me. But with a partner to press the pins out, it’s easy. The same holds for assembly.

LGV trigger out
When the crosspins are out and the compressor is relaxed the trigger assembly will come out of the spring tube about 1.25-inches.

Once the tension is off the mainspring just pull the trigger assembly out of the spring tube. The white synthetic spring guide comes out with the trigger assembly and the mainspring will not separate from it. I don’t know if the guide is Delrin or Nylon, but it is slippery.

There wasn’t as much grease on the spring as I thought there would be. But it did have a profound affect.

LGV mainspring
The mainspring had less grease than I thought. Still, it did the job.

Build a Custom Airgun

Spring guide is tight

I was surprised to find that the mainspring was on the spring guide very tight! That’s what you want. This is a well-designed air rifle! I could do no better. There is also a forward spring guide that we call a top hat. It is also on very tight, plus it fits tight inside the piston.

LGV top hat
The LGV also has a forward spring guide, which we also call a top hat.

Remove the piston

Now disconnect the cocking linkage by simply lifting it out of the piston and away from the cocking slot. The piston will then slide out of the compression chamber. You don’t have to remove the barrel to remove the piston. That’s one reason this LGV earned my respect and got a higher number on the ease of disassembly. There is no good way to grab onto the piston, so I simply bumped the end of the spring tube against my benchtop, with a thick rag for cushioning.

LGV cocking link out
The cocking link lifts out of the slot without removing the barrel.

Clean the grease out

Once the piston was out I had access to clean the Tune in a Tube grease from the powerplant. The mainspring and the inside of the piston had the most grease. I used a dowel with paper towel wrapped around to remove the grease from the compression chamber. A thin screwdriver blade with paper towel got most of the grease from the inside of the piston, but I had to do one more thing. I have some 8-inch thin wooden crafting sticks and I used cotton to make a long cotton swap. That cleaned the remainder of the grease from inside the piston.

LGV swab
I made up some long cotton swabs to get all the grease out of the piston.

The rest of the interior of the spring tube was unaffected by the grease. I did note, though, that the LGV has a separate compression chamber inside the spring tube.

LGV compression chamber
A separate compression chamber (arrow) has been pressed into the LGV’s spring tube.

Looseness inside the piston

The only place were I found any looseness was inside the piston. The mainspring has some play, though I don’t know if it’s enough for a soda can shim to fit. It’s pretty small. It was packed full of TIAT though.

Mainspring is straight

I rolled the mainspring on my benchtop and could see no wobble or deflection. It looks like a new spring. The piston seal is also in good condition all around. You will note that the piston seal is smaller than the rear of the piston. That’s because of the separate compression chamber that the piston seal rides in but the rear of the piston never enters.

LGV spring straight
The mainspring is like new and so is the piston.

Lubricate the powerplant

With all the parts clean and dry I lubricated the mainspring. I used about one-tenth as much TIAT as I used before, but I made sure to lube the inside of the spring coils as well as the outside. No grease gun this time. I used a cotton swab to control the amount of grease that was applied.

Assemble the rifle

That done I put it all back together. It came apart and went back together with cleaning and lubrication in about 90 minutes. Now it was time to test it.

First shot

Michael, your LGV is still vibrationless! It does lunge forward a bit now with less lube inside, but there is no twang of any kind. I used a little more lube than I did for the HW 30S, because this rifle vibrated so much before, but I used less than I ever would have thought possible.

Velocity

Okay — the big test. Are you ready?

Basic

The RWS Basic pellet shot at an average 945 f.p.s. before I did anything to the rifle. After the first injection of TIAT it averaged  811 f.p.s. Today, after carefully using about one-tenth as much TIAT on the mainspring, the same Basic pellet now averages 910 f.p.s. for 10 shots. That’s a decrease of 35 f.p.s. in exchange for a dead quiet mainspring. But the tune is still breaking in, as I will show you in a moment.

The velocity spread before any lubrication was 16 f.p.s. After today’s tune the spread ranged from a low of 898 to a high of 924 f.p.s. That’s a 26 f.p.s. difference. But, as I told you — wait for the good news.

Meisterkugeln Rifle

RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle pellets averaged 882 f.p.s. before any lubrication and today they average 864 f.p.s. That is a decrease of 18 f.p.s. Before any TIAT this pellet’s velocity spread was 14 f.p.s. Today it ranged from a low of 856 to a high of 872 f.p.s for a difference of 16 f.p.s. I don’t know if you can see it yet, but this new tune is breaking in right before your eyes.

JSB Exact Heavy dome

The last pellet I tested was the 10.34-grain JSB Exact Heavy dome. They averaged 755 before any TIAT and 766 f.p.s. today. That is correct. They are faster today than before I used TIAT. Before the velocity spread was 15 f.p.s. After today’s tune the range goes from a low of 864 to a high of 869 f.p.s. That’s right — just 5 f.p.s. difference!

I could see that the tune was breaking in as I tested. So I shot three last shots with RWS Basics. They went out at:

926
913
928

Michael, you may get back all the velocity that was lost. You just need to keep shooting this rifle. After you feel the difference TIAT has made I don’t think that will be a problem.

Discussion

Umarex USA did a wonderful job tuning this LGV, but it needed something more that they didn’t do. It needed TIAT. Done right the rifle loses little or no power in return for smooth vibration-free shooting.

I have to say this LGV is made quite well. Many of the parts are machined well and the mainspring fits on the spring guide very tight. The only looseness I saw was the mainspring inside the piston and I think that was intentional. It was filled with TIAT after the first lube job and I think cleaning all of it out is where we picked up the velocity. There isn’t enough TIAT on the mainspring to gather inside the piston again.

Summary

I think Michael will give us the summary when he gets his rifle back and shoots it. Until then we will have to wait

  1. BB,
    This report did not get linked to the main blog page. I found it by editing the url. Also only 9 of the comments of the previous report are shown. – Don

  2. B.B.,

    Does that mean the previous noise you and Michael appreciated before application of TIAT is from that gap between the mainspring and the piston that got filled in with a thin film of TIAT?

  3. BB,
    Once I login I can see all of the comments on yesterday’s report, but this report is not seen on the main blog page. – Don
    PS- I cannot see any comments for this report unless I login.

  4. B.B.,

    THANK YOU! I am not just happy. I am also now excited to shoot my LGV.

    It seems that the vibration mystery is not entirely solved, although the success of your tune makes that ultimately moot. You succeeded in doing a perfect tune — you kept the air rifle’s power while making it go from a deafening twanger to a smooth shooter. If I’m not mistaken, this was a feat thought possible only by an elaborate process involving custom spring guides, secret compression chamber texturing and custom buttoned pistons.

    But I think you’ve made an important discovery. While a large amount of Tune-in-a-Tube (TIAT) applied through the cocking slot can smooth out an unruly-shooting springer, disassembly of the powerplant and careful and judicious use of TIAT is the best remedy. Using far less TIAT uniformly applied smooths the shooting behavior while preserving the power of the rifle.

    Perhaps in addition to a chronometer, every airgunner should also invest in a spring compressor. :^)

    Thanks so very much for undertaking this.

    Michael

    • Michael,

      Well, not exactly. You see I tuned the HW 30S after I worked on your rifle and I did not disassemble it to apply the TIAT. I used the injector needle very judiciously. I learned that from working on your rifle, but I didn’t want to say anything before this report.

  5. IT Team,

    Something is wrong with blog address it cannot be accessed directly using my previous bookmark which is pyramydair.com/blog
    I had to go through several hoops to find it.
    Siraniko

  6. BB,

    Well done. Looking forwards to Michael’s impression.

    IT: I had to access the report through the PA sales page. Previous saved bookmarks were useless. The RSS saved tab did work to show current status of comments. (along with the issues mentioned yesterday)

    BB,.. where is the Comment RSS access on the (current) format?

    I will try to re-save tabs using the new blog later today to see if that improves anything. Not enough time at the moment to fool with it.

    Chris

      • Michael,

        Not sure what is going on. Just got logged in, twice.

        I have asked about the RSS and got no answer. This RSS) is what I keep open. Then,.. if I see a comment I want to reply to, it (used to) take me directly to the comment. Not so now.

        And, since being out since 7:45 this morning and the blog has had more than 20 comments, I can not see what happened after 7:45 (other than the most recent 20). I will try to use new saved tabs, but I doubt that will do anything. Maybe tomorrow.

        Not happy. 🙁 Hope they get it all figured out.

        Chris

      • Michael,

        I do not know how you deal with those glowy thingy sights. I tried to use them when I purchased my Maximus, but they were 😛

        I was planning on removing them, but that really speeded up the decision. The funny thing is they are made by Williams.

        • RidgeRunner,

          Believe me, the vibration, a violent shudder really, was so bad that I wasn’t really thinking about the front “glow worm” sight.

          B.B. is not kidding when he says it vibrated like crazy. It was the oppositie of subtle.

          Michael

  7. BB,

    Does the lip of the second compression tube risk tearing or cutting the piston head when it is installed or does this tube have a chamfer or ramping to reduce such from happening?

  8. Is the government involved in this mess ???
    Take something that works, and replace it with something that DOES NOT work.
    Then fix the problem by making it worse .

    tt

  9. BB, Congrats on the tune. I liked your comment about “shot number four” when doing a 10 shot group.
    I have a dialog that goes like this. Shot #1, Just take the shot dont worry about it. Shot #2, if it touches #1, thats good but it doesn’t mean anything. Shot #3, if it touches 1,2, it’s not a fluke, you may be on to something. Shot #4, if it’s clustered, this is where the fun begins. I find it seems to get a bit harder now, but if shot #5 groups well, I’m just past the halfway point of the string, and feeling some stress about my expectations. I think this is where being consistant or not will start to show.
    Shot #6, In a perfect world, the shot dissappears into the void of the group, but because its 32 yards
    to the aimpoint, I have to deal with the wind, and yes I opened up the group. Shot #8. I forced the shot. even bigger group now. Note to self: a nicer trigger would be great. Why wont it go off when I want it too? Shot #9, Hey, its my group, it thankfully goes into the black. The good news, I only do 9 shot groups because of the Mag. And I’m grateful to BB and this group who I know shoot way more than I do. That LGV piston looks like nice kit, fully buttoned no less.

    • 1stblue,

      Get all that self-Talk out of your mind while shooting. Wow! Talk about pressure.
      Just try to think about only a single shot; the one you are about to take. Once it is gone move on to the new Single Shot.
      I know, I know! Way easier said than done but every time you succeed is a victory. Those Single Shots will form better groups.

      Giving it a try is the only way to find out if it works for you.

      Hope it does!

      shootski

      • Shootski,

        I have noticed something like that, when shooting a 10 shot group at 25 yards it seems to open to a 1/4 to 1/2 inch, but when I shoot single targets 10 in a row go into the 10 and 9 ring only.

        Guess it is what you say, shooting without pressure.

        Mike.

    • 1stblue,

      Maybe this is why I have always preferred to shoot target with a single shot and hunt with a bolt action. Like Shootski is saying, you make every single shot count.

      I consciously do not think of the shot when it is time to “squeeze” the trigger. Think time is between those “squeezes”, not when you are doing it.

      What I think that helps me is I do not use “formal” targets. When I am shooting open sights, I will use a 3/4″ price dot colored black. When you get out to 25 yards, that is a pretty small target. Can I put this pellet in that dot at that range? Well, the last pellet clipped the edge at 4 o’clock. Can I put this pellet in that dot at that range?

      When I am using a scope, I shoot at an X. I shoot at the intersection of the two lines. Aim small, miss small. Can I hit that intersection point with this pellet at that range?

      Make each shot count. If it helps you, do as Shootski suggests, one shot per target. that is all you get. Relax. Clear your head. Drop into the “zone”. Make it count.

      • ok, so it is in my head. I like the shoot a single intersection with as scope and move on, allot, thanks, I’m doing that one now, and I made a small hanging steel with two 1.5″ diameter holes. If all the shots go in, its a soft back stop, so very quiet, but if I hit the edge, I get a nice ring, sort of like the “doctor” board game. Never get the inconsistant trigger release issues with the rekord trigger I do with the Diana pistol tho.
        TA

  10. BB and all.
    Yes missed blog posts etc due to IT weirdness.
    Decided to go bonkers in the garage again. this time I am moving the grip back to roughly where the original stock had it, in front of the trigger not behind. I found an alloy plate which I decided to incorporate and it’s on and feeling pretty solid. ( and looks rough because it is…) Sat in bed this morning and drew some stock design solutions with this plate in mind. If I had a full length piece of alloy then it would be different again. ( I make do with what the scrap bin provides). My trigger remodel needs a re model, this time longer, maybe even alloy… we will see.

    Blog layout observation: Put the “select an image …” between the message box and the “send a comment” button. Order of operations etc etc. AND that red button is still stabbing me in the eye! Big rectangular RED things is soooooooo last last year….. : – ) Robert

      • Siraniko,
        I am starting to think I should actually look around the city for better material, there is a place that does special wood. A hardwood grip…. and fore grip and cheek rest… and why not? A full longerun of alloy is the trick I think. but while I am here I may as well use the small bit I have for a bit of practice. If it works out ok I will spring for a good chunk of alloy. OR maybe try my hand a sheet metal work…. I could make a press. : – ) Robert.

  11. B.B.,

    When you talk to IT a disturbing thing is that unless you are logged in you cannot read any comments. The number of comments when one initially finds the blog is zero (0). Only after logging in does the true number of comments is revealed.

    Siraniko

  12. Well, I did not have to log in this morning. The letters are also black instead of light gray. The counter shows the number of conversations.

    The only issues I have now is my old map does not work, I am still having to come to the PA site to get here, my typing window letters are still gray instead of black and I am not receiving emails telling me when someone has responded to things I have typed.

    I guess all of this can be considered a minor inconvenience, but I am spoiled you know.

  13. B.B. et al. –
    Looks like this has been an interesting week on the blog for a lot of users. I’ve been following most every day all thru the pandemic and have to say my system has been coping just fine. I put Ubuntu Linux on my 14 year old PC and follow the comments using Liferea Feed Reader for RSS. That’s about as technical as I can handle since I can’t even work most of the Aps on my smart phone.
    Anyway, an off-topic question for the readership. I’ve been spending a lot more time this past week with my FWB Sport and utilizing past and current tips I’ve been getting here on the blog. The Sport seems to be getting better all the time but I did notice a slight buzz. Following the tips from Michael’s LGV post I removed the stock and put a little TIAT on the main spring. That removed more that 90% of the buzz but not totally. Frankly, it’s hardly noticable. It did make me wonder about how the TIAT could distribute itself for better coverage and what I could do to facilitate it. Since fluid-dynamics are way above my pay grade I thought maybe someone here could suggest that shooting with lighter pellets or heavier for say, a few dozen would help that distribution along.

    P.S. Interesting, I did have to log in twice.

    • LM,

      Just shoot her with whatever works best for her. After just a little bit, it will be well distributed. If after a hundred shots or so, if she still has a little buzz, you might try just a tad more in there. Do keep in mind that it is easier to put in than to take out.

    P.S. This is really not off subject, just a different air rifle.

  15. Hi there boys and girls!

    Here is your opportunity to help out ol’ RidgeRunner here at RidgeRunner’s Home For Wayward Airguns. It seems I am having a bit of difficulty finding a couple of suitable 4-40 set screws for my Maximus trigger assembly unless I buy a brass trigger which I do not want or I buy fifty of them.

    If one of you folks out there could enlighten me, please do not hesitate.

    • RR,

      I have a supply of 1/4″ and 1/2″. I have one 3/4″. Stainless with Phillips pan head. I am not sure what I used and really don’t want to remove the action and pop the box cover.

      The holes were already there and the screws threaded right in. I seem to recall using a longer one on the lower screw (trigger screw/over travel) and the upper one advanced the parts more so the sear would break sooner.

      I moved the trigger spring from the side of the blade to behind the blade and used a ball point pen spring as I recall.

      The V spring is critical. I closed the V more. Trace on paper and measure with a protractor so you know the start point. From my notes, it looks to have been 130* stock, 121* was too light, 124* looks to be where I ended up. This is was holds the sear block in the up position.

      I think you have my e-mail. If not. GF1 does.

      I am surprised the local mom and pop hardware did not have them. Maybe look for another one on line (or phone book) and make some calls ahead. In the end, you are welcome to what I have if you can determine what you need.

  16. Had to log in twice and still can not go direct to a comment (to reply) from the RSS page. Grrrrrr! 🙁

    There is no (log in) pick. You have to find the article and then go the comments, pick anyone and choose to log in.

    Someone mentioned staying signed in. I was able to do that long, long ago,… but not for several years now.

    No RSS pick either. I am using a saved tab now.

    Did I say Grrrrrr!? 🙁

    Chris

      • BB,

        Thanks. I am trying to be patient, I guess I am getting grumpy in my old age. 😉

        It is like when you move a dog’s food bowl from its usual spot. Dog’s don’t like it. (we had a dog when we were kids and we would move the bowl on purpose. That dog would do it’s best to get the bowl back to its spot,.. from across the kitchen,.. 1 room away,… 2 rooms away)

        Eventually,… Mom would stop us and tell us to “quit torturing that poor dog”. Then again,.. it also kept 4 little kids busy for a 1/2 hour.

        Chris

  17. B.B.,

    I think we have been looking at the pellet question the wrong way. There is no good consistent way we can possibly shoot a pellet because we are all different shooters with varying levels of skill. We also have to contend with a myriad of power plants and barrel lengths. You can, however, with your wide range of experience, after a thorough physical examination of the pellet for consistency of weight, diameter, and other parameters, suggest where it would probably best be used for and in. Just my ½ cent worth of thoughts regarding this matter.

    Siraniko

  18. BB,
    SoS. Blog access is strange. Can’t even find my post to reply to the replies. The latest blog is not showing up and the reply count is way off! Logging in twice etc. Send help! Robert.

    • Robert,

      Official word from the top brass is that the crack PA IT team is on top of it. 😉

      We are all having issues. A bit odd though that it is different experiences at different times for different people.

      Replies have stopped showing up in my e-mail just today while others have been griping about it for awhile now.

      Chris

      • Chris USA,

        I have been trying for at least half an hour to try to make sense of the situation, it is very odd. I wonder what the blog cockpit looks like? Is it millions of switches and dials or a “tablet” glued to the fire wall?
        This might sound a bit rash but I think a forum might work better.
        BB posts his reports and we get to comment. Just turn off “start a thread” for users and leave “leave a comment” on. BB is the moderator, so he can start a thread as a blog post. Too easy. : – ) And it’s all very easy to navigate.
        Having been a forum user for a while now elsewhere I found it much much easier. and infact I never saw one hiccup ever.
        Migrating to a forum and taking all the blog reports and related comments…. now that is IT headache right there. Robert.

      • Chris,

        I haven’t gotten an email notification since the blog update. But, up until the past few days, I have remained logged into the blog. My comments RSS feed still works but only shows the last 20 comments, so it’s not much good now. After I read all of the comments on a blog for the day and then come back the next day for a new blog, I go back to the previous blog and press Ctrl + f and type the month and day into the search box. For example, today I typed May 9 enter and was taken to the first May 9 comment. Then just keep searching for the next May 9. It’s a clunky way to do it but is easier than scanning through all the comments looking for any new comments.

        If I were working on this project it would have been fixed yesterday!

        Geo

        • Geo,

          Log in was awful this morning. 6 replies showed up in e-mail (only) at the very end of the day yesterday. I could go from RSS direct to comment yesterday,.. but not today. What a mess. 🙁

          And all this was to make it more phone/tablet viewing friendly? I forget now. Oh well, maybe someday.

          Chris

          • Chris,

            Tell me about it! See my comment on today’s blog. This is getting to be ridiculous! I am about ready to give up on the blog for a few months until these incompetents sort these issues out. If they don’t get some qualified help, I don’t this will ever improve! Sorry, but this is just taking way too long to fix.

            Geo

      • BB,
        Roger that. The troops are getting restless! ; – ) Robert.

        But if I click on a link to a previous blog report it will take me to the report page but not the comment. ie. I have a link to comment

        test test.

        Ah HA !!!! Both links work in “here” but the bottom link does not work properly in my Email. ( Yahoo ) Or in the URL bar of my browser ( Firefox ) .

        Weird.

        But wait there is more.
        If I am logged into the blog, and I click on the link in my email OR I paste the link into the URL bar on my browser… the link works BUT it does not open the new page as logged in.
        It should open the page to the comment even in I am logged out.
        So I have the blog report open, logged in, in a tab. and I click on the link in my email, it should: open a new tab, be logged in and go to the comment.
        There is something weird with the way the log in is working. It’s not opening new blog tabs as logged in and it is not opening links correctly. Must be related. Robert.

        • Robert,

          Well,…look at that,…. I clicked on your comment from the RSS page and it took me right to your comment!!!!!! That has (not) happened for a couple of weeks now.

          It appears we have progress! 🙂 🙂 🙂

          Chris

          • Ah ha!!!! I see what you mean. But it might be a lose connection…. could break at any moment. I think it’s got worn brushes. That’s a minor tear down and replace. But can you get the right size and wire?
            If I log out of the blog will the link work properly…
            Robert.

            PS. Still won’t open old links properly. : – /

  19. Here is a thing:

    A link in an older email that points to a previous blog report does not work properly.
    New links to the current blog report seem to work fine. and even older links seem to work fine. or do they…
    Ah…
    Some links will open as logged in and some will not, some will open to the comment, some will not.

    So the information that is needed is embedded in the comment. I guess that they are file attributes.
    what IT needs to do is check that all comments, or whatever, have the same attributes.

    That makes sense now. If you change something it really only affects new comments. Old comments will be stuck with the settings they were subjected to at the time. in my humble opinion.

    I could be wrong. : – ) Robert.

  20. A new observation:

    If you use this URL as a BOOKMARK ( not logged into the blog ) :

    /blog/

    you will get some strange version of the blog.

    If you use this URL:

    /blog/? ( It’s the ? mark, and the blog will not let you use it…. no idea why. Just type it in. Works when logged out of the blog. It works as a book mark in fire fox. )

    You will get the up to date one.
    This works if you are not logged into the blog. Also blog posts are not showing up IF you are not logged in. This might be a Word press issue as I am pretty sure they upgraded to the new version of WP when they did the swap. Not a very good idea! Two things at once…. Darn..

    Earth to IT, come in IT….

  21. B.B.,

    The blog has turned into a log in problem. I’m being thrown into a loop of multiple log in entries and being forced to wait for at least two minutes been attempts. Fortunately I had already logged in previously in my cellphone from where I am writing this now. If you are not a registered blog reader you will miss the comments because they don’t show up. IT has better work on this double time and overtime. This is getting ridiculous. Bad enough that I’m being forced to go to the main Pyramyair.com site to access the blog. It gets worse that I cannot read a single comment unless I’m registered as a WordPress user.

    • Siraniko,

      Same here. Heck of a time getting this AM,… went out for a bit (comp. off) and even worse getting back in now. Once in, I am logged in on the previous blog,.. but not logged in on the current blog,.. but after about a half hour,… now I am. I could get to a comment from the RSS yesterday, but not this morning, but now can.

      I am picturing one of those mid-evil riot scenes where people in rags are amassed in the dirt streets with sticks, pitch forks and flaming torches. 😉 LOL!

      Chris
