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.

    '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.'

  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 bought the XL which comes with a silencer, it's actually a really good one & makes a very dull thud that makes you think it's only producing about 2fpe.
    The adaptors are cheap on ebay but I don't know where you'll get the mod or any mod come to think about it as most rfds are shut & you can't post them unless secondhand!
    But if you can get the crosman mod from somewhere (loads of crosman forums & FB groups about) then it's plenty good enough.

    As above, but the adapters can be a bit of a "chod in a pass pot" fit...

    Personally I prefer to screwcut the barrel and make a moderator that's screw on specific... OR.. I make a slip on mod that locates DIRECTLY onto the barrel ... with NO adapter.

    Screw cut barrel with custom mod...
    20200221_180007.jpg


    or.. slip on moderator specific for the 2250 barrel...

    A few of the forum members make moderators, maybe one can help you out? Always hearing good things about the ones made by "bl4de" (no idea how to link people in comments).

    Also what are you shooting against? The sound of pellets hitting a metal pellet trap can be louder then the gun itself. I find a cardboard box filled with old newspapers works really well to quite down my shooting whilst still stopping pellets.

    Regards,

    James.

    Another vote for Bl4de. Works brilliantly with an 11.05mm x 1/2" UNF adaptor. PicsArt_05-20-08.03.01.jpg

    Used an adapter on my king rat catcher but as Halinfax said they can be a poor fit so had a slip on moderator made by a forum member which cost me £47 from memory and that didn’t work either !:facepalm:

    am i right in thinking a 2250 barrel will fit a 2240? if so, could a barrel also be cut down in size?

    They are identical except for the length.. the longer 2250 barrel is what makes the 2250 into a rifle spec, where as the shorter barrel makes the 2240 a pistol spec..

    I've got one by @mattw975 that is at least as good as the commercial offerings and I was able to spec the size I wanted and I am more than happy with its effectiveness, ALL you can hear is a noise like a kitten sneezing and the pellet strike downrange, that's it :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Oh and it looks the mutt's nuts too ...

    IMG_20200515_101710_2.jpg

    ...And costs less than a Weihrauch!

    My advice would be don't pay twice or three times as much to a large (usually overseas) manufacturer when you can support the guys on the forum making good kit and selling it for a very fair price :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:


    Hope that helps ;)

    I have a Halinfax & Matt Winser mod on both of my 2240s, and a mod made my Halinfax on my CP1.

    They both work really well & the turnaround & communication from both guys was superb.

    These guys should charge more for their work, because their mods are excellent.

    Do you notice any pellet clipping with the mod attached on your 2250XL?

    I ask, as many have reported clipping.

    Also, has yours got the 1/2" UNF thread as standard like mine?

    On the standard 2250xl no, I bought a 2260 spares or repair cheap & took the longer barrel off & replaced it, bought a 1/2"unf adaptor off ebay & put it on, still no clipping!
