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.

    Well good afternoon all, I have just purchased an S410 .22 I have zeroed it in and getting good results, BUT... I'm only getting 30 shots from a 190bar charge then the accuracy tails off. Is this normal?

    or is there anyone local to leyland Lancashire that will chrono my gun see what ft/lb its at. I'm looking for a chrono but just not got round to it yet hahaha.

    thanks all

    If you fill to around 160-170 bar you should get at least 60 consistent shots before you should need to fill again, maybe more from a .22. Can't help with the Chrono though.

    At 30 shots for .22, i'd stop using it til you get it over the chrono. Thats using a lot of air, and it's likely it's on the hot side of the limit. I could be wrong though

    If you are only getting 30 shots I would say it's running Hot!!!!!! Or you have an air leak!!

    It doesn't seem to be leaking I checked it last night and this morning (only off the gauge on the gun) and it hasn't lost any pressure. I will keep it locked away till I can chrono it. Thanks for your help.

    Download one of the free chrono apps on your phone to get a very rough idea!

    It will not be as accurate as a proper chrono, but if you are only getting half the shots you should per charge, logic dictates that you are at least 50-60% over power. This should confirm it! So it comes in at 11-13 get a proper chrono, it comes back at 18+ get some new underwear!

    It is for confirmation of the problem, not for accurate testing.

    Another very rough way to work out your power is to zero at 30 yards then shoot a target at 60 yards and compare the pellet drop to the pellet drop chair gun says you should have.
    It's always worth noting your pellet drop from 30 to 60 yards if you are in the field and ever wonder if your gun no working correctly you have a quick check.
    Cheers Andy

    I take it my guess of around 18 ft lb was about right?

    it was averaging 17.6 over 10 shots (via the app), thought it had a bit more oomph than my s400, I have been looking for a Chrono but wasn't sure on the best one for the price, if I don't get one this week Roy64 I wil take you up on that.

    thanks again everyone.
