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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Thanks for the replies suggesting a suitable soft carrying case for my FX Verminator. I am considering purchasing the bottle/attachments, to re-charge myself, so have the following questions.

    1. What capacity bottle would you advise me to purchase,(I have limited storage space) but don't wish to be continually getting it re-filled?

    2.I only target shoot at a local club, a couple of times a week, usually expending no more than fifty or so .22 pellets.

    3. Are the re-charging facilities only available at Dive Centres, or are there possibly other available sources with the appropriate compressor?

    4. Using Yellow Pages, I'm unable to find listings, for Dive Centres Etc.

    Apologies if the answers to these questions are relatively obvious to some, but I am having difficulty getting there. Thanks,:):

    There's a dive centre in Didcot, that's quite a drive though :p

    Other than that I've got no idea; if they have charging facilities at your club then don't bother getting your own, if not you could get a 3 litre bottle available from most gun shops. These should give you anything between about 10 and 40 fills, depending in the rifle - does it have a 'buddy bottle' or not? If not then you might want to think about a stirrup pump if you're limited for space.

    Thanks for the speedy reply:): Yes it does have a 400c.c. ? Buddy Bottle, which supposedly gives 200 shots on a re-charge? I'll ask at the club to find out where they get theirs re-charged. It's just that I feel with the new FX, I want to give it the best attention I can, and ensure there is limited dirt etc. admitted during a re-charge.:(:

    As you are no doubt well aware, the Verminator's front air chambers filling access, has no dust cover, so I cut a suitable two inch section off an old innertube from my grandsons bike, which does the job quite well, without any difficulty sliding this 'sheath' under the barrel. Plenty of clearance, as it stretches in section.:):

    hello linkpin, i see you live in the hertfordshire area, where in hertfordshire do you live? i go to croxley divers. its located in croxley green (5 mins from watford town centre). check the website for deltails.

    http://www.croxleydivers.co.uk/ they re-fill bottles and also test bottles. its £25 pound to have it tested and to put new valves on ect but you will not need to have it testes if purchased from new. i think its around £10 per fill depending on the bottle size. give them a call they are very helpfull.

    as for getting a bottle, i think you should go for the 3ltr bottles. if you have the cash go for a 12 ltr you get alot more fills, the only problem is its annoying trying to lugg that everywhere as its quite heavy.

    pete.

    If you're only using the rifle once or twice a week then a 3ltr bottle would be fine, but if you go out shooting a lot then you should get the 7ltr.

    I wish I could be of more help, but I'm really a springer person.

    Our dive centre in Rotherham fills a 12ltr 300bar for £2.50 !!!
    As long as the bottle doesn't have a divers regulator fitted, just gauge and filling pipe, the test is only needed every 5 years.

    I use amphibian in Norwood (I live on the Croydon/Bromley border). I got lucky on the bottle front, popped into Biggin Hill Saddlery & Gunroom and they let me have their secondhand 10ltr 300bar with charging kit for £130... with 3 guns to fill the pump was getting a bit too much ;-)

    I wouldn't worry to much as the filling adapter is designed to push any dust away when u insert it. Just make sure you always put the fill adapter in the same side everytime, and once in a while pull through a lintfree cloth starting from the same side you insert the fill connector. Jay clothes are perfect. :)
    The Swedes build these rifles like they do their Volvos...indestructable! :D

    FX only recomend their own FX pellets.
    These are now made by JSB but with FX's own dies.
    I'm sure ben taylor and son would have them or would know where to get them from. When stating the muzzle volocity, they even say it was with these pellets.
    Ive tried a few other pellets in my Typhoon, but the FX ones were by far the best.:)
