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.

BSA Ultra SE Stock advice ..

    I've bought a QF stud and intend fitting to a BSA Ultra SE that has a pressure gauge fitted. I intend on using a bipod. I've placed the bipod up to the stock to roughly see where the stud needs to go. It appears I would have to have, front of the stock bipod hangover or the pressure gauge covered .. is this the only option available regarding the BSA Ultra SE and fitting a stud/bipod?

    I don't want to use a bottle clamp. Any help appreciated ... atb :up:

    I guess you have the wooden stock then. The other stocks have a longer run and easily accommodate a stud and bipod. I think this is a 'design feature' of the newer models.
    Shame.

    Should have explained more clearly "soz" ... its a beech wood stock ... 2014 BSA Ultra SE with the BSA pressure gauge ... think if i was to drill and place the QF stud in a position that the gauge wasn't covered there would be approximately 12mm forward overhang ... moving the stud further back will cover the gauge, though it would also give me a "flatter" part of the stock for the bipod to contact the stock ... just can't see a way round it ... wanted to sort out before this Tuesday as I'm likely to be night shooting with it ... had it a few weeks and had a few problems with it though hopefully resolved now, except for the stud/bipod fitting .. if anyone has a photo or two that I might view to give me an idea as to what the end result is likely to be like i appreciate very much atb

    u could just cover the gauge, they arnt very accurate, and given the modest shot count, it should be easy to keep track.
    also, you could add a aftermarket gauge to the air tank.....

    note, if the bipod does not rest securely on the stock, it may be prone to movement, and the last thing you want is the QD stud coming loose ( isnt it a 4mm hole), so not the strongest fitting

    I know what you mean mate,

    bsa used up the new style minelli stock that was on the mmc version, drilled a hole for the gauge and filled the hole for the mmc with a sling stud,

    you can put bipod on and cover the gauge,

    get the newer longer stock,

    or get a gauge for the end of your cylinder from XTX:)

    It's similar with the r-10, my quick fill hole is covered when the bipod is fitted, Don't have any problems with the Ultra though, it's the composite stock and the stud was already fitted.

    odd, on My R10 (Mk2) the fill hole is not covered, and I have a rail adapter added to the stud.

    Yeah it definitely covers it as I have to remove the bipod to refill it, I even tried using a Dremel to grind away part of the bipod so the probe will fit but I need a longer probe now - which I haven't got round to sourcing yet. :rolleyes:

    Mine is a 2012 MKII, Yours from the stock is a 2013-2014, I think maybe BSA have moved the QD forward on the later models - can be the only explanation... oh well!

    In the end l just took the bipod off my Walther and fitted a studs to the Ultra to accept my bipod,* which like l said,* l normally use on the Walther.* If l tilt the rifle l can just make out the pressure gauge.* Its not ideal,* though its not bad! ... firmly fitted so pleased .. only slight downer and its my own fault ..

    Though when looking at the butt pad l couldn't see any retaining butt pad screws,* l think there must be.* *The rear stud feels like its hitting one when l screw it in.* This is causing the rear screw to tilt over.* Can't see what holds the butt pad on .. need to take it off to locate the screw and trim it down a bit,* so it does impede against the rear QF screw ... just dont want to damage the butt pad when taking it off .. anyone any idea as to what holds it in place .. atb hoggy

    Just two screws hold the Ultra but pad on, I have the TAC version if it's the same as yours.
