  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.

    Hi All.

    I know they're more of a toy then an actual hunting tool as standard but can they be tuned into one? I think out of the box they chuck out 8ftlb but can they be fettled to throw out a lot more?

    I ask this because I have an older brother who is a catapult man and refuses to use a springer. He does like the Daystates but he doesn't want to spend that kinda dough on "A bloody air rifle" and I think with the semi auto-ness of the CX4 he thinks he can go hunting rabbits like Rambo.

    On a serious note though a semi auto full power rifle for around £200 would be a heck of a tool.

    So can it be done or do I need to find another way to convert him to our side of the force?

    I think the British ones all have smooth bore barrels fitted so you will never get enough accuracy for hunting even if you got the power up.[​IMG]
    A very short range rat gun maybe but not a proper hunter

    It is smooth bore to comply with the firearms laws we have. A local rfd (I won't name and shame) told me it was a rifled barrel. Doh!

    You can do a HPA conversion and up the regulator pressure to 120-140 bar range. 11 fpe should be doable. Search the net, people have done those conversions but I don't recall how much power they got out eventually.

    Haha cheers for the info Sam. I have had a quick look online but I cant actually find a law that states that we cant have a semi auto air rifle with a rifled barrel. They're frowned upon by MP's but not illegal I don't think. Could be wrong though

    Found this on an old forum post.

    A few years ago now I had a sub 12 air rifle, it was bought new and definitely legal. As I recall it took 11 shots in a removable rotary magazine. It took a small CO2 cartridge. No bolt on it. Each time you pulled the trigger it fired, that's what I'd call a semi.
    Unless things have changed fairly recently I'm sure they are still legal - though personally for anything but target shooting I'd only recommend a bolt action.
    They aren't semi auto, they are double action revolver . The magazine is rotated by the first stage of the trigger pull. Also they have to be smooth bore. The only calibre that is legal with a rifled barrel and semi auto action in the uk is .22 rimfire.

    Alternatively you could get Crosman Nightstalker, trigger operates the magazine so it's not semi auto as such. I converted mine to HPA but I haven't turned up the power (yet).

    From the little I know they are almost the same gun?! Correct me if I'm wrong. Only going by what I have been told.

    They look the same but internals are completely different. CX4 operates both magazine and hammer with CO2 pressure while Nighstalker has magazine operated by trigger and hammer operated by CO2. CX4 has a CO2 expansion chamber inside that may be a risk with HPA, Nightstalker uses more or less standard Crosman valve system so it's easy to tune.
