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 looked on there, Knibbs and Julian Bond, none have this in stock, showing as discontinued and noted as serviceable item only.

    Whats up with the current body @James Brook ?

    I wonder if @cloverleaf has any wisdom to impart on us. What would be an ideal solution is for the S4xx series block to fit?

    Give Julian a call, he is a very helpful guy and if he hasn't got one he might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Depending on how bad the damage is you might have luck lapping the valve seat with Autosol or similar. The obvious thing to use for this is the valve, however really you want to use something that's larger diameter to avoid the potential for valve shrouding if you end up removing an appreciable amount of material.

    As for replacement blocks; I'm struggling to find the part number for this bit, however the crap low res exploded diagram on Bagnall and Kirkwood's site possibly suggests S305 - which doesn't bring up anything on the Julian's site.

    I think it would be possible to use an S400 item (you'd want the earliest type which is KS507), however you'd need to block the gauge mount hole off (grub screw with threadlock..?) and also I think the stock bolt hole is larger (M6 on the S400 v. IIRC M5 on the S300; but check yours) so you might need a new bolt and possibly enlarge to hole in the stock somewhat.

    A better bet might be the MPR 10m part (JT507) as they don't have a gauge mount since it's on the front of the gun. The only question would be the mounting bolt hole orientations, but I think these are all the right way up in the 10m MPR rifles.

    It's probably worth dropping Julian a message to see if he can shed any light..
