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.

    The Alecto adapter will only fit the Alecto MK3.
    Your options are that you could buy a new MK3 barrel or send your existing barrel to one of the many companies that machine them to take silencers

    I had to buy an exchange barrel from Chambers, as my original barrel had no threaded end.. I bought the larger Alecto mod as well.. It wasnt quiet enough tho.. So i found a guy selling an adaptor on the Bay.. I bought the Mk 3 adaptor, which i hasten to add was the wrong one.. Luckily he had another size which fitted my barrel. It now sports a nice quiet carbon mod.. and just makes a quiet little pop..

    You could have the barrel threaded, or you could do it yourself, if you have the tools and skill, a lot cheaper than a new barrel. PS. I don't know the thread size, but I am sure someone on here will know.

    I'm about to buy the adapter in this link http://www.airgunner.biz/steelblue29609s_004.htm and would like to know if I need to buy a moderator with a taper at the barrel end or if the squared off ones still allow for the pistol to be fully opened to charge.

    Any recommendations for which moderator?

    Oh and is there a place where the tool for unscrewing the cap thingumy can be bought? Mine didn't have one with in the box and buy the sounds of it they've stopped shipping it with the tool. I know it unscrews as I've tried with a pair of pliers but it's not ideal.

    The mod adapter should come with a thread protector, if not you can get them, and once you have fitted it to the gun, you leave it on the gun, so once you have removed the cap from the barrel, you will not have to put it back on again, so getting the tool would be a waste of time. I first tried a HW mod, but looked stupid as it was too long, so got a sound biter, 4 & a half inches long and made of delrin, replaced the internal springs with hair curlers & foam, works fine and looks ok. If you look at my post on this page, or in my picture gallery, it shows pictures of my set up. Atb, Bob. Here is one of them. 100_0685.jpg

    Thanks, but I'd already ordered the one above @ £20, to stop me being to depressed at spending £20 on a tiny bit of metal Solware would have been almost £18 inc post although I probably would have bought some more pellets to offset the p&p charge.

    I can;t wait for this lot to arrive as the pistol makes quite the racket.

    If the mod adapter comes without a thread protector, you can get them here, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GunTuff-1...-PROTECTOR-Air-Rifle-Airgun-Gun-/231056697399 , or your local gun shop may have them. Atb Bob.

    CHeers I'd already tried removing it with a a pair of needle nose pliers and bar the soft black coating on metal marking a little it was simple enough.

    As to the quality of the adapter I bought, it works but is a little tight on the diameter of the section that has to fit in the barrel. This means that it's hard to align the threads and I had to be careful not to strip the threads and install it at an angle. Also due to the adepter being smooth it's difficult to apply enough purchase on it to remove it should that be needed. I'll definitely be leaving it alone for fear of damaging the threads on the barrel.

    That said with this and the 2nd hand moderator I bought on this forum I'm now happily able to shoot without startling the neighbors.

    I purchased the same adapter as you, and had the same problem, but I just leave it fitted, and just remove the mod so it fits in the case. Atb Bob.

    I removed the "bluing" from that end with some emery cloth, it was surprising how thick the material used to colour it was. I suspect that they didn't take that into account when designing it. It makes it easier to fit still not easy. Like you suggest I'll just leave it on I was just concerned about the force it must have put on the barrel and or the mounting screws.
