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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    As some may know, I ordered the worlds ugliest gun from Germany on Monday. I'm stuck in the house today as littluns poorly bad and off school, so I was sulking a bit to be honest, then the doorbell went.

    Its arrived!!:eek:

    The box is tiny! I put my ultra on top for comparison. Maybe they'd sent a pistol by mistake?
    I opened the box.... Another, smaller box! Eek!
    Inside that I finally found Mr Ugly, nestled in the usual oil impregnated paper the Russians are so keen on. There's a very good manual as well, stacked with info and pics on operation and how to strip it!!:D:D

    The fit and finish is fine, it's stock and top frame are plastic, housing a very solid over lever cylinder and barrel, giving a nice feel to the gun, light and very pointable. I took it outside for a play in the garden and found the first problem. The magazine! It's located at the rear of the gun and the pellets are a very sloppy fit. This means if the gun isn't muzzle down when you load it the pellets can drop out and get trapped inside and cause much swearing! First shot. BANG, SHUDDER, CRUNCH! Any of those will do, I flapped my arms around to try and clear the big pall of blue smoke I was now standing in, the birds took wing from the trees and a small tribe of native Americans came over to see what I wanted. I fired a few more off to clear it a bit before I tried a few shots over the chrono. Eight shots (one mag) covered 480-520fps with 8.4 AA. So 5fpe it is then!

    I switched the child monitor on and took it down to the shed so I could have a tinker. Within seconds, the very well written instructions had helped me get it into its component parts. The piston is a little 25mm affair weighing only 112g, rather let down by the hulking great steel spring guide/piston weight which added another 55g. That'd have to go! The spring resembles a week old stick of celery, very limp and more than a bit pathetic. I'd nothing in my box of bits that was suitable, so that'll have to wait til I can get to the shop. I put the piston on the lathe and gave the contact points a good polish, and while I was at it, I took 1mm off the seal rebate as I wanted to fit my Vmac TX seal instead of the one supplied. While it was apart I also checked out the safety as it hadn't felt very positive in use. As I should have expected, it was fitted with a pingfukkit, and it took me ten minutes to find it and get it rebuilt.

    The safety clicks between positions now, which is good, I tried a few test shots, no diesel, no crunch, less recoil and generally nicer all round to shoot. I guessed this was due to the piston weight getting dumped, so knew the power would have dropped accordingly, hopefully with a few fps clawed back by the vmac seal. Eight shots over the F1 showed 527-532 fps, so a bit more power and better variation.

    I'll update this when I fit a proper spring and get a scope on it.:)

    "pingfukkit" what a delightful word, I think you should inform the bods at the OED so that it gets included next year.

    It's still a dog to look at, if your unable to come up with any third party alterations to make it more likeable perhaps something to protect the anonimity of the user?

    And that is absolutely all I've got to say about that.
