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.

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for the newb question, but hey thats what the forum is here for eh? (I did try a quick search, but didnt find anything)...

    I have recently bought a BSA r10 (no, it hasnt stopped working) but yesterday I went down the local shooting range and ended up buying a silencer. When I went to remove my muzzle break to fit the silencer, I didnt hold the barrel before I tried to unscrew it, and the barrel seems to rotate round. Is this normal? And if so, could it cause any issues?

    It did seem fine after, no wild inaccuarcies etc but it did only move a few degrees. Just thought I would ask the question in case it happened again with more rotation. The barrel seemed to rotate pretty easy.

    Any advice appreciated (unless its to sell it and buy a HW100, haha)

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It is a shrouded barrel version. Is the shroud and barrel seperate then? (I did say I was new to this didnt I? aha)

    Spot on mate, will tighten it up tonight. I was skeptical about turning it until I had asked someone that knows their stuff.

    Thanks :)

    as stated, the barrel is fixed into the breech block, and the shroud is fitted over the solidly fitted barrel - this video will explain and show it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmjHxga_0jE
    when fitting/removing a moderator, always hold the shroud at the end where the pellet comes out to prevent it from moving

    Know nothing about the R10 but does it not have a transfer port that the barrel should line up with?

    Don't know the answer to this, hopefully someone will be along to answer that for you.

    In regards to the shroud though, about half a turn later, its nicely done up. Also now always hold the end of the barrel while removing and fitting the silencer.

    Thanks again guys :)
