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.

    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.

    began cleaning my gun out with cotton wool buds the other day.... then realised the worked like little darts. they were accurate upto like 5 meters then they spun off wildly

    i cut one in half and superglued a nail/pin down the pipe section and accuracy stays till about 15 meteres now.

    perfects for dartboards etc.

    just wondered if there are specific ones for airguns, no including those steel darts that are meant for smooth bore rifle though, i used them ages go and messed up my rifling.

    i know they do plastic versions aswell but im looking for someting in all honesty the same kinda 2inch length ive made so far.

    failing that, if youve made any int he past can you let me know what your method was please

    thanks in advance

    Sounds like an accident waiting to happen, a sharp pin will happily shred up any seals or internals as it passes through the barrel at hundreds of feet per second.

    Saw one on u tube once, that was designed to shoot arrows as well as pellets, think it was in America. looked interesting. But think if I wanted to shoot arrows, would just get a crossbow. Atb, Bob.

    To have enough power to get the arrow to fly properly it will be well into fac territory. I would like to see someone trying to convince the feo why they need an arrow barrel.
    As you said just buy a crossbow:):):)

    thanks for the replies

    i already have 3 crossbows. so im not looking for a crossbow :). saw that fx gun and cool as it is i have not the need or money for it.

    i was looking for other versions of 177 darts, store purchased or homemade. but not ones that will damage a rifled barrel like the steel darts i used in it many moons ago. my cotton wool bud and pin/nail versions work great but they're one trick ponies. one shot and the cotton wool tail is foobard.

    I seem to remember that Gat guns used to come with 5 or 10 steel darts, you could also buy the darts seperatly.

    This thread has taken me back to when I was 13 and I had a BSA Metor in .22 and in the summer holidays we were left to our own devises. Soon found that the green garden canes fitted down the barrel. In the farm workshop we would make arrow heads for the canes out of tin. Mmmm what fun was had shooting them at apples on the trees in the orchard.

    This just reminded me of using my granddads old BSA tap loader as a water pistol. The shame of it now! :D

    I thought similar.. presumably if the "gun" is firing a projectile courtesy of compressed air, it's subject to the usual 12ftlb regardless of what it's firing..

    As far as I know it doesn't have a barrel it has a rod which the arrow sits over.( like a spigot mortar) As it has no barrel it doesn't count as a firearm. I think it is still illegal to hunt with them.
