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.

    Does anyone have any info on the titanium ones? Weight? Shot count? Price? A link to where you can get them?

    From a quick read there is no increase in shot count using the titanium cylinder, and not as much weight saving either due to the fact you have to use the ends off the original weihrauch cylinder.

    You only save 170g on the carbine version from what I can tell, with no extra shot count, whereas the A & M version you save around 300g (1/2 the original weight) and also get about a 50% increase in shot count..

    The titanium one just doesn't seem to warrant the money and effort to me. Or am I missing something?

    Also, buying the titanium cylinder and using the weihrauch cylinder ends means you can't then sell your old cylinder like you could if you bought the A & M version. Being able to sell that makes the A&M version very cheap in comparison, along with the extra benefits!

    I have used A&M cylinder and I have never had any problem with it. I heard about titanium cylinder but you still need to use your original cylinder ends with it which will make it more expensive option but it also made it heavy.

    Hi i have a full length A & M cylinder on my HW100 fsb they are fine not as polished as a Hw cylinder but have a good gauge and simply screw straight on. As far as failure goes they are tested to 300 bar and have a overpressure relief valve in them so barring seriouse damage they should not blow. Just a point if you get a swivel stud for the front stock screw on a Hw100 check its not too long and does not hit the cylinder when you screw it in.:cool:

    I have one on my s200,the outlet valve from the original AA cylinder screws into the A&M cylinder,it is fitted with a pressure gauge at the inlet end.I haven't seen a HW cylinder so don't know if the diameter is the same as the cylinder for the outlet valve,but the AA one is less so the cylinder has a step down from the cylinder that narrows the diameter so the valve can be fitted.I have had no problems at all,it is extremely well made.If they were dangerous or prone to bursting I don't think they would still be for sale,I have never heard of any exploding and am pretty sure in this day and age A&M would have been sued to bankrupcy,had a facebook campaign against them,been tweeted and youtubed to death,and probably been on jeremy kyle for good measure.Ring or email them if you have any worries/questions,you will get a proper answer not just hearsay and rumours off a forum.When you are dealing with pressures that a pcp uses,there has to be some element of risk.I still fill mine at arms length and keep looking away from it as it fills,what the hell good that would do if it exploded I don't know.
    andy.
