1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I had a blockage problem with my Gletcher 1911.. it got gummed up & vented a bit of gas... So I field stripped it to try to sort it.

    A couple of BB's were stuck in the barrel, which were easy to get out.. & there appears to be a BB stuck in the, what I assume is the c02 mechanism bit in the slide (I'm new to this game & don't know the technical terms! ...in fact, that's the first time I've ever stripped this gun)

    Just need an idiot check... Is that a stuck BB or part of the mechanism?

    Pic not great but hopefully you get the idea.... IMG_20190224_220341115~2.jpg IMG_20190224_220208923_BURST000_COVER_TOP~2.jpg

    It's a bit hard to work out where the BB is from your photo, sorry

    Yes, that is a stuck by in the BB loading nozzle . A common problem with these.
    Lots of vids on the tube to help you strip out the blowback unit , just be careful of the small parts and springs.

    I had constant jamming issues with my 1911, changed the gun, issues continued with replacement gun. Turned out to be dodgy Remington BB. Inconsistent sizing.

    When I bought my 1911 blow back, I was giving a old box of BB free, they had a coating cover? on them and like you have said they were inconsistent in size and not round, so they kept jamming the 1911, so I bought another box which had the same makers name, but a different batch number, they didn't jam the gun. I now use the ones that kept jamming for my single shot guns, because I'm tight.

    Update...

    Managed to strip it right down & got the stuck BB out of the loading nozzle... It was jammed in hard!

    Got it back together & it's now firing ok... Thanks for the advice (...& the YouTube video that guided me through it!)

    I agree, the gun seems to be sensitive to different types of BB... Beginning to think the original problem may have arisen from mixing Pro Shot & Umarex in the same mag!

    They actually look different sizes even though both are supposed to be 4.5 mm! o_O

    Mate, I see I’m late to the thread but use Accupell brass coated lead BB. They are brilliantly sized and never, ever jam. Some of the cheaper ones jam like mad in my Sig Sauer 1911. Only use the Accupells now... no issues at all...
