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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Dare it say it....

    Save your money and get the CP1 which is already kitted out.... it’s a slippery slope of mods....

    Grips £30
    Breech £45
    Silencer adapter £6
    Mod £25

    Right there alone is the price of a gun...

    Grab a cp1 -M (multi shot) or a CP2 which comes with a mod and stock too!

    The best mod for a 2240 is to cut 1 coil off the hammer spring. It’ll give you 70+consistent shots at 5ftlb rather than the 30-35 starting at 5.6 dropping to 4

    Well this is great. Now I feel I need a 2240 with a shoulder stock and the steel breech in case I decide to scope it down the road. What do I need it for? Hell if I know. Survival situation? Nah, got the Ruger 10/22 backpacker or the Savage 24 (.22 mag top barrel/ 20 gauge bottom barrel)for that. Pistol shooting fun? Haha....hahahaha! Got that covered in spades. Air rifle fun? Nope, love my 80 and 35E. Why do I want this? Because it's kind of cool, I guess. It's a pistol than makes into a rifle and I love that kind of thing. Probably why I have that CZ Scorpion with the folding sto...,um, arm brace that I have no earthly use for. And it'd be really fun at the claim where I don't feel to comfy shooting the powder burners.

    My usual (and only) air pistol choices have been the Remington 1911, the Colt SAA or the Umarex MP40 (full auto weirdness, there). And I like them and have had a lot of fun with them. Maybe I just need a change to something a little more serious in the air pistol department. Something a little more powerful and accurate that I can throw a stock and scope on if I feel like it.

    If that's for me, Reevo; I'd love that but it seems that the CPs are unobtainable in my benighted part of the planet. When it comes to all things "air" you guys have it made.

    Nooooow you tell me! I already ordered the Crosman with all the stuff. Oh well, I'm expecting I'll like it and it really does seem like there's a ton of after market accessories for the Crosman.

    Point taken!
    It seems that I'm already committed though.... I think my compromise will be just wood grips & a silencer (as it is a bit on the loud side!)

    So, I've ordered walnut grips..... but not sure what is my best option for silencer/moderator... Any suggestions? ....what do 2240 owners on here use?

    Perhaps I'll do a separate thread about that....
