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.

    Hi everyone I have a BSA Multishot, I think it is not SE but as I don't know what to look for I maybe mistaken !
    I use the gun for keeping the rats under control near the chickens and ducks and very good it is at doing it's job.
    The magazine I have with it slips often missing some of the ten pellets in there.
    I have looked at buying a new magazine but noting is clear as to weather the new magazines will fit my gun.
    I took it into a local gun shop and they said that the new magazines don't fit !
    I need you help guys and girls BTW it's a .22

    IIRC correctly, to use the new BSA mags with older rifles like the MMC, you have to remove the indexing pin on the rifle as the new mags are spring loaded/self indexing. Sure someone will come along and confirm.

    Welcome to the forum ;)

    Your rifle is the earlier "MMC" variant and as such has the "clockwork" mag that's indexed off a vertical plunger in the underside of mag aperture; actuated by the trigger.

    The new "self indexing" mags will work in your rifle but you'll most likely need to remove the sprung indexing pin assy from the underside of the action to prevent it fouling the new mag. To do this you'll need a slotted screwdriver bit with a cutout in the centre; which you might find in a standard mixed set of bits. I didn't have one when I needed it so modified a 4mm allen key with a grinder and Dremel, which did the job nicely.

    Whip the action out of the stock and have a look for yourself to get a better idea of what the crack is ;)

    Thanks for indenrifying Mickey
    That Hurts, if I did that would that mean my original magazine wouldn’t work? Can I buy an original from anywhere ?

    Correct, I'd do some searching online to see if you can find MMC mags or put up a wanted ad on here and you might be lucky

    @cloverleaf ... didn't you have a load of BSA mags a while back Mike ... were any of the old type that would fit Darren's MMC ?

    The old BSA magazines had a tendency to act up a bit anyway. If yours is skipping pellets (my old one had a habit of doing that), I'd junk it and get one of the newer ones.

    It was often enough to clean up the old magazine and adjust the indexing pin to make it work again. There was/is detailed instructions in the bsa forum. New magazine fixes it all if you want it easy.

    I was told by Bowket when I had an mmc Ultra that sometimes the skipping problem could be overcome by thumbing in the stickiest grease you can find into the bottom of the magazine around the tic toc lever. It cured it on the one I had but as soon as the self indexing mags came out one was bought and the indexing pin on the rifle removed. Worth a try:)
