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 all out there,
    yes I know will have been talked about before, but looking at various dive bottles at the moment and seen different valves ,test dates in water and out !, can any of you give me some guidance on this ?
    looking at 300bar 3ltr at mo not the biggest but what I can afford at this time. It has a mde valve fitted to the tank . Are all the tanks pretty much the same and no difference or is there a particular type that is best for air gun charging. If there is a thread already may be point me in that direction.
    been a lot of new guys on lately so this may help them as well .

    oh will be used on BSA ultra mmc 177 .

    Don't know too much about bottles mate but if it's from rfd then will be fine for charging your rifle , with it being used for the ultra would imagine you will get in the region of 30 ish fills ? Try using the search bar for threads on bottles ( may even find one for sale !) , anyway sure someone else can inform you better hope you get sorted

    Hi Andy don't buy one with standard mde valve as the cylinder would need testing more frequently meaning costs sore, Some people call them surface valves others air gun charging valves. With one of these the bottle would need testing every five years at a cost of around £40-50. If you won't be using the gun every day then a 3ltr should be ok but would advise you buy the biggest you can afford as almost same price to refill as a small one and to have tested. Buy one with a pressure gauge and whip, if buying second hand the price should reflect how long a test it has left on the botfle. Cheers Simon.

    carbon fibre cost more than steel and only advantage is lighter weight. so if carrying get CF if leaving at base get steel (steel more damage resistant).
