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.

    Has anyone had an issue with the cocking bolt on their ultra???
    Mine seems to be loosing some chrome plating, there are no bare patches of steel but If I rub my finger across the probe I get small traces of chrome on my finger.

    Does anyone know how to remove the cocking bolt/pellet prob for further investigation!!!

    Mine is not the MMC one I think it's the SE although it doesn't say SE on it?????

    Thanks

    Jamie

    If there is no wear on the probe shaft then it might be grinding against something inside the action and wearing it!

    Have you lubed the bolt lately? I put one drop of SM50 on the bolt every time I use the gun and a drop on the pellet probe seal.

    I would err on the side of caution and book the gun in for a service!

    you need them to look at it jamie - you dont want chrome particles (if it is chrome ) getting down the barrel and onto the o rings mate. it could also be lead particles from the pellets. either way, they will identify/sort it

    I'll nip it down to redbeck at the weekend (uh oh R10 purchase) and see what they say, is it worth taking it out to have a look and see if it's been damaged before I take it in?????

    no jay, let the guys at redbeck look at it as it is - if you take it apart, and it is damaged, your warranty will be invalidated, and bsa could argue that the damage was done when taking apart.

    Hi steve
    Sm50 is that a silocone based lube?
    And do you literaly pull the bolt to the rear and as you say oput a drop on and work it around the bolt,forgive me here as i dont know so will ask.....the pellet probe is the part that makes contact with the pellets once the bolt is pushed forwards and chambers the pellet? And you put a bit on that to? Just round the edges not the front?
    Thanks :)

    I don't think it's silicone based but check the link below.

    yes pull the bolt back, put a drop on the bolt and work it back in, drop on the probe o-ring to help stop it wearing/tearing as it pushes the pellets through the mag into the breech.

    I had this problem with an early R10 (April 2009), the Nickel plating came off the bolt handle & pellet probe, some of the plating ended up in the magazine. Mine went back to BSA for new parts & was never a problem again, I sold it last year. A couple of R10 owners on the ***** forum have also reported this problem, seems as though there has been a bad batch come from the platers.
