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.

    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.'

  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.

    Out of curiosity rather that looking to buy, but from looking at the BSA R10 it seems it only loads from the left, is it possible to adjust it to load from the right?

    I suppose you could retro refit the mag well block and put it on the left hand side then push the mag in from the right (assuming the mag is symmetrical so that the pellet load correctly and seat properly)

    My R10 is a standard right handed model and loads from the left.

    Have a word with Pneumatic Ballistics. They are a precision engineering company (real precision - they reckon Daystate are rubbish because their tolerances are huge!!) who make jigs and testing equipment for the likes of the MOD - if you want a rig built that will photograph shells as they are fired up a test barrel, so you can see what happens inside the barrel - that is the kind of work they do. That and rally gearboxes and race gearboxes for some racetrack names that you will have heard of on a Sunday afternoon on the telly!

    Pneumatic Ballistics is just an offshoot of this engineering firm, because the owners are keen airgun shooters. They did the design and prototype work for the new Brocock that was launched a few months ago - they also designed and built the new type BSA magazines. The ones that self index, rather than requiring the trigger or bolt to index them. They do BSA magazines and I bet they do them to load from the right. My PB double magazine for the Rapid loads from the right, but the Daystate one loads from the left (again, a double 20-shot magazine) It would be worth a phone call.

    The new BSA magazine still jams. I had to take both of mine apart to adjust the tension in order to rectify. Hardly a work of art tbh.

    You should get them from PB then, rather than the cheap ones BSA churn out to their design, well almost - the tolerances won't be anything like the PB ones.

    Wish I'd have known before I bought a second BSA one. They look a lot nicer. Maybe I'll pick a couple up when I get £80 spare.
