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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    which rifle did i shoot..?

    last week at the club range, i tried a number of PCP rifles [prior to deciding which one is for me]

    one had a small exposed spring [ biro size] at a 45deg angle from the rear of the trigger blade - upwards into the trigger mechanism

    anyone recognise which make/model

    [due to family commitments in London, wont be back at the club for maybe 4-6 weeks]

    thanks.............it's bugging me and google images of AA, BSA, Daystate etc are no good...:rolleyes:................john

    thanks -- that was quick

    well here goes nothing...............as i offend all the AA owners...:lol:

    i want a lighter rifle for hunting than my TX200HC [ medical probs with hands] and really like the S400

    BUT ....OMG that stupid little spring looks like an engineering after-thought

    it really is IMO utterly amateurish...jeez my Webley Tempest trigger looks better than that

    I'll ask Rowan Engineering - but does anyone know if their trigger eliminates the above biro spring...?





    there's a thread on here about phobias...guess this is mine...................:lol:

    The rowan trigger that looks like the ev2 trigger is a great addition to an s400!

    No problem :)

    Yes, it was an engineering afterthought :p

    The S400 triggers have gone through four basic changes:

    The first ones had a plain blade with no safety or return spring, with a two-sear arrangement.
    Later this was revised with a third sear to improve the feel between stages (made 2nd stage heavier with respect to the first, and well worth having), at the same time the nasty safety button appeared in the blade.
    With the arrival of the "f" suffixed rifles the housing arrangement changed but the guts remained the same (better in stock form than earlier units but worse if you plan on shimming it) then finally, and reasonably recently the return spring was introduced.

    The triggers are very well designed units that respond well to a bit of basic tuning, however the more recent additions to the blade (safety and spring) degrade an otherwise fantastic rifle. Not a huge problem to rectify though; earlier trigger blades will fit, as will the MPR unit and as mattys has said Rowan also do some nice items to fit. In short, don't let it worry you too much ;)
