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 took approx two inches off my Mod60s barrel. The reason for doing it was that the previous owner had removed the open sights...this leaves the end of the barrel looking ridiculous...so it had to go! Ideally you'd use a lathe, but I've not got one, so I made a jig which allowed me to cut it dead straight with a fine hacksaw blade. Then I used a fine file to remove most of the cut marks, then finished off with fine wet&dry in an electric drill...Sounds a bit amateurish but I got good results and the gun retained its accuracy.
    There's a few threads about carbining the Mod60 on the Turkish airgun forum, might be worth you having a look.

    Took 6" off my nephews Mod 60, it dropped 1fpe, retuned using power bands in the WW kit.

    No change to accuracy!

    This was mine after I'd carbined it, above one of my HW80's for comparison, which I had also carbined:

    Here it is under my oldest and most tuned HW95, and the SMK XS19 that I shortened and tuned:

    I took mine quite short which increased cocking effort due to reduced leverage, so keep that in mind if you do this.

    Best plan is to try holding the barrel at different lengths until you find one you can easily manage to cock the gun with that is shorter than the current length. Mark it with tape and that's your cut point.

    Make sure you crown it.

    Mine printed very good groups once I was done with it, but I think I had a poor example of the gun. I've tuned half a dozen or so of these now and the one I had was a pig to sort out - all the others I've done were a breeze. Typical of my luck to buy a pup :rolleyes: but I'm currently considering another one :)

    Was this the older type with the stepped muzzle? The newer ones are straight cut and look nice and tidy, although its a bit long if you want to add a mod!

    Yeah that's right, it was a pre-Quattro triggered model...if memory serves me correctly the serial number dated it as produced in November 2008. It was a good gun, but not as good as the newer model (and a bit on the noisy side).
