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.

Air Arms S510 Mag Issues

    Have any Air Arms S510 owners had an issue with their mags not indexing correctly ?

    I bought my riffle new in June and with it I bought 4 mags, out of the 4 only 1 actually indexes as it should. As I was getting a bit desperate as the gun was new and seemed to be working fine, I decided to buy a couple of third party mags and they work an absolute treat.

    So I am really puzzled that AA's own mags aren't reliable when a much cheaper third parties works much better.

    I have let AA know and awaiting a reply but I cannot be on my own someone else must have experienced indexing issues with their Mags.

    Its normally the indexing bar that starts to fail.
    Does yours have the old style indexing bar ? The lever that turns the mag
    Can you show a pic?

    Air Arms may still be selling rifles with the weak old style indexing post. Naughty.
    The one on the left in the pic below is the old style and commonly fails, the one on the right is the new one and much stronger.

    The new rifle you purchased in June, was it new ‘old’ stock? If so, it may have the older type indexing post which were known to sometimes have issues with being bent out of correct position not allowing the mag to be indexed properly..

    I have an Air Arms 410 and 510. There is no problem with the original AA mags indexing, but they are hard to turn compared to sweeter aftermarket mags. I am concerned they (originals) will strain the mechanism on the rifle.

    These ones are silky smooth and index perfectly: :up:

    They are so good, I no longer use the original mags.

    The air arms mags can be a bit of a pain. They may need the burrs taking off with very fine wet and dry on the aly carousel . A Rub of oil is also a good option on the o ring.
    @Nobby is a wealth of good stuff on air arms. @cloverleaf and @Rotherham Owl also??

    The 510 that I owned (that I sold onto a mate) had a similar issue and as Indentified above it was a ‘new magazine” issue. Seems they work a LOT better when they have all the sharp machining edges worn off (I bought a couple of older used 410 mags off a mate and these were silky smooth) so as suggested above I ‘wore mine in’ a bit with wet and dry paper I also took a turn off the detente spring to ease movement. Then lubed the lot with silicon grease, and they were much better and are still getting better by all accounts. Mine was a Gen 1 non regulated 510us and had the old style post.
