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.

    Thinking of getting a regulator and associated tune for my AA TDR... as the only thing I find to be a negative is the low shot count...

    I know about Huma and also Lanes, and AirgunTune (Mike) but are there any others I should be considering?

    I've read that when fitting a regulator its also best to have the gun tuned / fettled to get the best from the regulators, anyone know roughly what this involves?

    If I go ahead with it it will be fitted by a professional and not me, as I'm no expert.

    Thanx :cool:

    Noted cheers, I thinks theres only a couple of UK companies doing Huma though isn't there? I wanted someone fairly local if possible, eg: London / Kent area.

    I have both Huma and Lane regulators and would have no problem getting another of either, they're both excellent. Rob Lane has a lot of youtube videos which explain fitting and tuning which would be well worth you watching.

    A low shot count is not down to being unregulated, fitting one may give you a slight increase, but it's ultimately the hammer and valve setup that dictates the shot count, and whether there is bounce present wasting air.

    Go for a cloverleaf tune as it will be as consistent as if it’s reg’ed with out the extra cost of set up.

    In may im taking my ultra se to Carl Garbet of Airtech any opinions on that. Ive heard his work is first class. I was very impressed when i spoke to him on the phone. Im having a stage 2 with a long titaneum cylinder. Also a shroud. I like my ultra but its US for plinking because of shot count but a terrific little gun to handle.

    My Scorpion will be going to John Bowkett for a blueprint tune in the next week or so, he doesn't fit a regulator instead he does some other technical witchcraft internally which he assures me will have the same result as a regulated gun without the worry of something else to go wrong...

    It's an AirArms so can be a pig to get it set right with a reg. Lots and lots of testing required to get the right balance between firing valve, hammer springs and weights to get a sweet rifle. As mentioned Rob Lane has a lot of videos and also PDFs on his website to give you an idea particularly there is a PDF on Air Arms fitting which will give you an idea as to what is involved. So be prepared to pay if you take it somewhere no matter what reg you decide on, Lane mentions he charges £200-259 to do an Air Arms.

    He is probably commenting on it's relative shot count being a carbine air cylinder, while I agree it takes some setting up, took me forever when I did mine, you're missing the major point that a reg lets you fill to a higher pressure therefore giving you more available air to start with not just the sweet spot of 170-110 ish bar an Air Arms usually has.

    Have a look at the Lane regulators, put one in my S510 4 years ago. Never missed a beat. Spares all available and reasonably priced. Manufactured UK loads of PooTube movies available for installation help servicing etc. Sells on ebay too.
    http://laneregulators.com/shop/

    Hammer debounce devices (HDD) available from the same site.


    Best non HDD setup.......... use a shorter than 'normal' stiff spring. ........ one that is literally just making contact with the adjuster and valve. so is pretty close to zero preload.
    Can be a bit of a pain if you are trying to achieve sub 12 ftlb or a 'velocity sweetspot'

    Easier to fit a HDD
