Yesterday i had the safety on the 2240 and had my finger on the trigger where it normally is and squeezed and it didn't fire like it's suppose to. If i move my finger down more on the trigger and squeeze it fired. I tried it more then once and fired the same.

Is my trigger set to light or maybe the safety bar is worn out?

Thanks

What happens if you bang the gun with your other hand while aiming at the target. Mine went off so I stretched out the trigger spring a bit more. In another case I inherited a 30 year old spring pistol. Worked fine until I cleaned an oiled it. Then I snapped barrel closed and the pistol would shoot and I had to tighten up the trigger screws. Caution is never cock and snap shut a spring pistol with your hand over the end as it hurts and leaves a big blood blister with a wadcutter. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nothing happens......you have to squeeze the trigger hard then it fires.

That would have to be a hair trigger. Not that light.

The safety bar can occasionally rotate around it's axis. That may cause malfunctions. Check this out.

This is one reason why I don't use a safety, and on most guns I remove it. Most all the accidental discharges I've seen were b/c the person thought the safety was on and pulled the trigger, or the safety failed like yours which happens a lot on airguns. It's ironic that a safety ultimately makes the gun more dangerous. My version of a safety is having the gun uncocked, and so far I've not seen any accidental discharges....
So I'd look at the trigger and sear while the grip is off so you can see what the problem is. Odds are the usual; which is the safety has more slop in it than the sears have movement. This is especially common on triggers that people mod and/or adjust too short.

I'd never remove the safety...instead do the smart thing and remember gun safety training.
