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.

<30mm Moderator/silencer For Pistol?

    Hi!
    I recently bought the HK P30 "kit", which is the Umarex made P30 with a externally threaded barrel and supplied with a silencer and red dot sight.

    I'd intended to use this for open sighted plinking and paper punching in the back yard, expecting the silencer to lessen the chance of annoying neighbours - which it does, admirably.

    However, the silencer is 30mm and blocks the foresight, which is annoying, as I find the laser or red dot sights not as fun to shoot with.

    Most moderators/silencers on the market seem to show the length but rarely the width and as far as I can tell, most are no smaller than the 30mm of the supplied "Umarex" silencer.

    So to my question; Does anybody know of a silencer with a body diameter less than 30mm?

    To make things more annoying, the HK P30 seems to have a Umarex silencer with an unusual 7 or 8mm thread, versus the standard 1/2 UNF that the Umarex silencer usually is - so I'll probably need to get an adapter made too, doh!

    Thanks in advance!

    I would give Shauny a shout. He will make one to your requirements. Or Blade or Matty.

    The weihrauch mod is 25mm iirc. I have used one on my alecto with open sights without it blocking them. Also the swift stumpy.

    That might be my best option - as it's just for back yard use, length is not an issue, just the width... contrary to normal wisdom, ahem.

    Thanks, I'll take a look! I'm actually using a 30mm silencer on the Alecto/Zoraki HP01 Ultra without any problems blocking the sights. The key seems to be the height between the barrel centre and the sight which on the Alecto/Zoraki is much bigger than the H&K P30.

    I've been looking at the CP88 which seems to also have a greater spacing and probably, wouldn't suffer from the same issue.

    The standard Weihrauch mod is 30mm diameter.

    I fitted a 25mm diameter mod to a CP88. It didn’t entirely block the front sight but it was a close thing and made for a difficult sight picture. I’m pretty sure a 30mm diameter would block it.

    What made it a waste of time though was trying to get it aligned on the CP88 using the aftermarket adaptors. It just kept clipping the pellets and I gave up.

    If you’re happy with the pistol and the sound level, it might be worth considering making some open sights by putting a pin on the front of the mod and making up or adapting something for the rear.

    That's not great to hear as I've already ordered the CP88!

    I was going mainly off what I read in this thread, which seemed to suggest a number of silencers worked ok under 30mm: https://www.airgunforum.co.uk/commu...comparison-silencers-for-walther-cp88.127815/

    The pictures seem to confirm that there's definitely more space between the barrel and top of the sight. I guess I'll find out when the CP88 turns up tomorrow! :)

    Have also spotted a few interesting threads about 3d printed silencers, which may be an option to just try myself as I do have a 3d printer which I've been itching to get a project for...

    Yeah, UBC is a bit of an Umarex fanboy club and I went by the same thread and bought one of Matt's silencers that it recommended. It appeared to be well-made and Matt is a fair guy and tried to help, but as I say I couldn't get on with it.
