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've been looking for a device that allows you to use 12g CO2 cartridges in a Sig MCX (which takes 88g). I've found a couple that may do it (one made by walther and one by airsource). I've also found a £10 which needs a little modding (the thread to too short for the MCX). Has anyone had any experience with any of these? I've read in a few places that the 12g CO2 cartridges lack the pressure to operate the blowback that cocks the hammer on the Sig rifles which means you need to charge the bolt for each shot.

    I use the best fittings one in my mpx not had any problems except you cannot use a 12g that has a neck such as the crossman ones. As they tend to get stuck and can damage the o rings. They recommend the umarex cartridges. It's about 25 quid but well made and works brilliantly. Get just over 2 mags from a single 12g which I have done my maths correctly it's cheaper to run it on 12gs than using the 88g ones.

    Google best fittings they are on there under Sig sauer brand.

    Hope that helps

    I just sold one on here for a tenner, unused, they work fine on the 88g rifles so a hand-gun should be okay.

    The Walther one is very good, takes 2 capsules, but it stays sealed when you take it out, so if you don’t use all the gas it can be saved for another day. Retails about £50 I think, but you also get 12 capsules in the box.

    cheers for the info. Great to know they do actually work :) I'll see if I can pick up a second hand one.
