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.

Charging equipment for PCP

    Having bought our 1st PCP (AA S200) I am turning my thoughts to buying some charging equipment.
    Obvious thoughts is for a diving cylinder type arrangement, hoses and adapter.

    Where is the best value place to pick these up from? Or is it a case of mixing and matching the
    component parts from different suppliers?

    What have you done?

    I think most places that sell the bottles also do the hoses and gauges mate...a pump is also a good option for a s200 as they are a easy rifle to fill

    When you think that most places seem to sell the valve and hose for about £60/70 the 7ltr on seems like
    good value compared to some suppliers for £175 inc valve and hose. The 12ltr one is £220

    What pressure are you filling from and to Tom, and what sort of pump are you selling? I use an old RWS (same as the FX) pump to fill my PCPs and I reckon it takes around 10/12 strokes of the pump for every 8 shot's worth of air for my regulated .177 S200.

    Not sure on what make it is, the S200 doesn't have a guage so I pump it up before I go shooting, taking it from 100-190ish bar

    You can tell what the starting pressure is by watching the gauge on the pump and listening for the 'ping' as the cylinder valve opens (the needle on the gauge will also move much more slowly as you are now filling the cylinder and not just the hose).

    Sounds like a bloody efficient pump - mind you, mine is about 14 years old so I suppose they've come on a bit :(

    Yeah it's a new pump, it filled my Venom Viper in 10-12 strokes from 90-200 bar.

    IIRC the Viper's got the same size cylinder as my Brummie Raider 2 shot, and you're getting approx 10 Bar per stroke? Any chance of a photo of the pump - perhaps someone will know what make it is?

    As far as I know they're the same as my old RWS, and that's given my guns hundreds of fills over the last 14 years without any maintenance since new - they're built like tanks!

    If it comes to replacing it I'd go for a Hills, but that's just because they're so easy to service, but the old RWS isn't showing any signs of giving up the ghost any time soon:cool:
