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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Just acquired a S200TA
    when fired the bolt shoots back letting air escape from the breech still spits out AA 8.4 grain pellets at 760 fps though, the bolt can be kept in place with my thumb but it can't be right can it?
    has anyone any experience on this please before I dive in?

    7Min 57sec into the vid,small screw with a spring and bb holds the bolt in situ,you don't need to strip it all down as in the vid just easier to show were it is than tell.Sometimes if the gun has been stripped they are missing,your scope mount may be covering the screw,so it's a scope off job.When you sort out if the bb & spring are there,tighten the screw a bit at a time trying the bolt for ease of cocking as you can overtighten it.Also just check the o ring on the bolt it sounds ok but whilst your checking it all you may as well.Any bits you can get off julian bond.. bgalt..on the AAOC site,discount and cheaper than anyone else.

    Just had a closer look and found the previous owner had repositioned the bolt incorrectly not allowing it to fully lock
    simple fix for a change,
    thanks Andy for directing me to youtube, and to all who take the time and effort to post these tutorials sharing their knowledge and experience. Excellent!

    My old s200 used to do that but still shot perfectly. I used to use it as an indication that the gun was not cocked as it didn't have a safety.

    Yes that's weird I was getting a blast of air I the face but the loss was barely noticeable, around 10fps.
    still happy now. For a cheap gun it's spot on in the power stakes and very accurate, though when sat next to my Theoben Vanquish it does look like a toy, LOL.
