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.

    Hi Guys,

    Just picked up an AA S200, wanted one for long time - came at good price so why not:)

    But,

    I need bit of your expertise, gun came with no fill in adapter, it have a quick fill in front of the bottle please see attached picture.
    What sort of filling probe do I need to fill it out of the bottle?
    What is the max pressure which I need to use for S200

    And finally:

    it is serial number: A056966, is there any way to determine age of the gun or at least make?

    Thank you for your help!

    It looks like the older snap on style filling connector (the top picture on this link)
    http://www.airgunbuyer.com/details.asp?cat=Accessories&SubCat=Air Arms Accessories&Product=2569

    Pretty sure Air Arms say maximum fill pressure is 190 bar but you may find that the 'sweet spot' where the power output is most consistent is from about 160-110 bar (it is on my s410).

    Contact Air Arms regarding the serial number/age of gun. My friend enquired about an old Pro Sport and they'd got it on the system along with the date of manufacture.

    Cheers Guys, is this mean that my gun is pre "T", what you reckon: how old it is?
    Is XTX only place to buy the gauge and fill in port?

    Tommy Gun, is your S200 regulated?

    Thanks

    Thanks Guys, Will get the adapter in the minute. I got it for less than 200 quid - bit of a drive was involved but still not a bad deal I guess. Silencer was included and it is 10 shot.

    I think it is mk2, but still will give them a call on Monday. I thought it is a reasonably priced gun. I will use it for target shooting.
    I'm taking it to my neighbour soon so he can have look at it, his s200 works and sound like a dream - maybe he can make it mine similar.

    Is there a much point to regulate s200, it is not that cheap and can't find any good description or review:/

    I have 2 r10, both mk2 and they are very, I mean very consistent and I guess this is down to regulators fitted.

    Thanks

    Only worth regging if you want better shot consistency,you wont get many more shots per fill as the space the reg takes up in the smallish cylinder negates the shot count.You are best chronoing it in fps,do a full shot string from full to say 100 bar,or when it starts to drop.This will tell you the variation in fps and if you need a reg or not,probably not to be honest.A&M gunsmiths do gauges etc,excellent company,google them for their site,I have an A&M hw cylinder on my S200,approx 140 shots in .177

    Thanks Andy, I will test it over the next week or two before will make any decisions. I'm not familiar with it performance at the moment and also the gun is empty now and only few minutes ago I have ordered filling adapter so need to wait for that to come before can do some shooting.

    What is the best place to do a full service of S200? want it to be cleaned, double checked and all the o rings replaced. Also any idea how much it cost?

    Thanks

    You can service it yourself,it's not difficult and there are stripdown vids on you tube.Join the AAOC website,a member call julian bond,bgalt is his forum username,does parts for all AA guns and you get 10% discount with cheap postage.If you don't feel confident in doing it yourself,he services them as well although I don't know how much.They are easy to do though with minimal tools required.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCE8NINNlGE
    Try not to fall asleep listening to the commentry.

    Thanks Andy,probably would have a go at doing it my self but I don't have that much time on my hands. hahah fair comment about falling a sleep!
    I will enquire with AA and few local gun shops and hopefully somewhere I will find reasonable turn around as it cannot be that expensive to service fairly simple unregulated rifle.

    Thanks
