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.

bolt accidentally opening

    Recently bought a new Huntsman Regal. Very nice looking gun, handles well and shoots as I'd expect from a gun of that price. HOWEVER, I have a major niggle (oh yeah, and a minor one) about the bolt. Apart from the ludicrously shiney bolt (not great for a hunting gun – that's the small niggle) which I can easily remedy, my main issue is that on several occasions I've lined up on a squirrel and squeezed the trigger to be greeted by a loud report and one very fast moving homeward bound squirrel! The bolt is so loose that at the slightest touch rotates back up unlocking the action. Has anybody come across this before with this gun? I've owned and shot numerous bolt action pcp's but never had this issue before. I guess what I want to know is, is it a design flaw with the Regal or is it more likely to be a friday afternoon gun that I need to return to Daystate? Being a Sunday I'd thought I ask around before getting on to Daystate first thing in the morning. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    hello, not having shot one i checked out on web the bolt action system, i prefere a lock down action bolt like the AA FX so i presume yours does same but not into the side action slot. it does seem to me a fault so take back to original RFD for checking out? was it ok when you purchased? did you try out? i hope you can get fixed but its not ideal for such an expensive PCP so good luck.

    Assuming you're closing it properly, something clearly ain't right. Best take it back and get it sorted..

    Think you have to untight two grubs on bolt handle, turn it 15-20° anticlockwise and tight. As well as tight the grub on top of the breech to lock the ball better.

    If not helps, check the fixing screw on the bolt inside the breech.

    Had my Regal just over seven months now and it's been flawless - amazingly accurate out to 50 yards and many club members have been very impressed with it - but if it's not right then as others have suggested, send it back!

    Thanks Philm. I'll give it a go and see if that sorts it.
