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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.

    Well here the start of my new Build. Gentlemen, meet Tac-rat. Big up to Algy for making me a part for it :up:

    Red dot is just placed in position ( steel Breech in order I thinks ! ) No Guts in her either at the moment.
    ( Waiting for peoples to buy my Barrels in the for sale section ) ;) to get some internals
    If I turn it HPA the same as Rat Rig then the Tube will be half the length it is now and fitted with 13cu Tank

    looks good ian but if your going to fit a drop block and a paintball bottle your better off cutting down a 2250 tube as the roll stamp on a 2260 tube is longer and extends past where a disco valve front finishes ,which is why they make an extended valve front for bulkfilling 2260's
    you don't see many 1300/medalist trigger frames either

    Hi Ped was just sat thinking of using 2250 Tube as I have a spare king tube ! the 1300 Trigger frame has been removed and a current version fitted so I could use the Placcy grips !
    and I can possibly sell the 60 Tube.

    Well I got the Breech and Discovery valve today so had a play at fitting them as you can see from the pic below have cut the tube to where I want it. Just waiting on the Drop Block to arrive from Gmac tomorrow and will get the holes drilled and de-bured inside get that fitted then wait on my 13cu Tank to arrive... Think I'm going to need a longer Barrel tho' so i'll get a 24" Ordered soon as I know. Will also be able to use the 12g Adapter on it, as well as use it for leak checks. When I've got all the parts required i'll be doing a pictorial of how the conversion was done.

    So Far...

    coming on ian i find it easier/less work to use the rear part of a 22xx valve and the front part of the discovery valve and the valve stem depends on what pressure i'm running at (below 1000psi std 22xx stem with the piercing pin cut off above 1000psi the discovery stem)the reason i prefer to use the 22xx rear is so that i don't have to notch the valve for the breech screw and i can use more discrete fixings for the additional valve screwsped

    Used the opposite ends of the Valves and knocked myself a .25 Smooth bore pistol with the parts I had left over would prefere a rifled Barrel but that'll have to wait !

    don't put a grub screw in from the bottom ian as the air passage runs up at an angle
