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.

  6. 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.

Can You Fit A 700mm Barrel To A Dreamline?

    Am waiting for a variation from my local plod to get a .22 FAC permission for my .177 FAC Dreamline. I see 700mm barrel liners labelled for Dreamlines, but no barrel kits. Is it possible to get say an Impact or Crown 700mm barrel kit, swap out the transfer port for a Huma Dreamline transfer port and then fit it to my rifle?

    Thanks for any advice, Bill

    Don't see why you can't get a 700 mm barrel for it. Have you spoken to SGC?
    Solware list the barrels.

    I would be very wary of fitting a 700mm to a DL, especially if you are going to use it in the field.

    The CROWN can only support a SUPERLITE at 700mm, the IMPACT type barrel system is too heavy for it to support in 700mm so a DL will be even worse.

    The only other option is to have it made, but like the CROWN I can tell you it will be extremely unwieldy to use and the only benefit in truth over a 600mm is if you are shooting heavy slugs, which of course the DL doesnt have the power to do.

    A dreamline will shoot .30 cal, and power pleniums are available it will shoot slugs ok with the right components fitted. I have a 500 mm version i think 700 will be very ungainly. But will do the job, just saying.;) The 700 mm high power barrel will come with the correct sized transfer port, just like the .22 fac barrel etc.

    True, you can get more power from a DL if you add the plenum, what are you trying to achieve exactly? or gain by using a 700mm WW?

    Thanks guys. SGC said no. Solware have the 600mm kit, but not a 700mm kit.

    I was looking to maximise power for slugs, in concert with Huma transfer port, pin probe and hammer spring upgrades (any thoughts/advice on those?). Having seen these comments, I think I will stick with the 600mm kit and Superior liner (to start with).
