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.

    I may have it wrong but from what I understand they put a few holes in the piston and fill it with a plastic "button" to make it slide smoother? Am I wrong?

    I see what you mean, though I would have thought that a Teflon / PTFE button word work well?

    Ichabod I know and so do you that the OP used the word plastic in it's generic sense.:D
    I think Delrin is commonly used although there are other materials.
    If you just Google "buttoning" of airguns all will be revealed.

    I was just wondering if someone on here knows more about it, if it's worth it and who may provide this service? Rather keep the custom in the forum.

    Plastic covers a whole range of plasticy materials,theres no need to be specific or pedantic :p :D

    Buttoning is the process of drilling and tapping holes in a piston to fill with small 'plastic' buttons which help the piston slide smoother (metal on plastic not metal on metal) it should stabilize it a bit too

    Mark.177 has contact details of a bloke that does buttoning, but why not go the whole hog and get a Vmach Vglide com tube and piston.

    You would pay £50 for a few buttons on your piston.

    A better bet would be to get hold of a 25mm piston and com tube. ; )

    For a Vglide you get a full set of bearings on the piston and com tube, and the compression tube is chemical blacked, plus the piston is reworked so the rear section of it, glides and stays central in action of the rifle.

    The Vmach Vglide conversion kit is the best on the market.

    Level one, v-Mach so it shouldn't be too expensive if I already have the spring set and exchange of piston.
