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.

    '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.

    i bought a new bsa ultra 3 days ago and when i first got it nothing there was wrong but yesterday i noticed when you open the chamber to put the pellet in there was a loud hissing were the air was escaping. so last night i filled the gun up to 200psi and then checked it this morning and the gun was completely empty. to me this doesn’t seem right but iv never had a precharged gun before so i wouldn’t know.
    so can anyone tell me if the gun is broken and i need to take it back to the shop or if this is completely normal???
    many thanks

    Your outlet valve has got a leak and that's not normal, you will need to take it back to the shop and get it repaired.
    You could just try firing it in case its just some muck stuck in the valve, but if it's still loosing air after shooting then it needs repairing.

    I dont know a huge ammount about guns but im guessing that shouldnt happen, im guessing there is a faulty seal inside thats letting the air out, if I were you I'd take it back, but you may want to hear what everyone else has to say first. My AAS410 doesnt leak any air atall.

    Also, do you mean bar, not psi?

    Hope I've helped a little. :)

    hi mate,
    i had a ultra many moon ago that done same thing,slap the middle of the stock,not to hard just a sharp tap a few times,pellet skirt may of dropped in there from when chambered in the barrell and fell down the transfer port.
    i took mine back to bsa who called me a liar basicly and said there was nothing a matter and they had charged it over night and it held.

    thing is i noticed they had un screwed the rear end cap,so why they strip it if nothing a matter?

    i got a bill for post but that was ok as my rifle was fixed.
