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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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 bought airgun charging gear from JR . and it stated to fit 232 and 300 bar bottle and charge rifle to 300 bar max, well it as a 315 bar gauge but the bleed block only says, wp 232 bar is this normal and safe as my bottle is 300 bar. Ian.

    Well it looks ok but that stamp would worry me. I'd send it back and get it swapped out personally.

    I am a little worried as I have a blank so I can see how much air is left in the bottle and don't want it to go BANG.

    It may be fine - there may be others that have a differing opinion to mine.

    So they think that sticking a 232 bar rating on it will stop people overfilling their guns? They do not know the talented bunch of idiots out there!

    The thing that really gets me mad is I could have used the valve and whip I already have and just changed the gauge for £18 instead of paying £52. in my eyes if its stamped 232 bar that's what it is rated at so I may ask for a refund and return it.

    Block was made for Diving Use - where 232 Bar is normal limit

    Din Fittings as such and A Clamps are required to be Tested every Two years

    As can be used in water - diving

    Uprate to a Air Gun Head - that Only needs Testing Every Five Years - And can not be used in water

    @ £40.00 per Two year Testing you will not only Save money but fell happier as made for 300BAR

    Re returning the Block - there are none made with 300 Bar on them - as Stated made for diving -

    No need for me to replace the bottle valve as mine are carbon and have a five year retest on them next test is the end of 2018. All I wanted was a 300 bar valve with a rated stamp on it incase I sold it on in time. The only problem is that it was sold as 300 bar rated and only stamped 232 bar .

    It's actually pretty disgraceful & I'm surprised a reputable company would do this. If it has a working pressure of 414 bar it should say so, they're encouraging people to put something like 200bar into a 100bar fitting 'because the rating is always 50% of the real thing'
    As noted, there's some real talent out there when it comes to the Darwin Awards.

    +100 with that, If it's rated to higher than 232 bar it should be stamped as such.
    Nothing to stop one getting it pressure tested to over 400 bar and then stamped accordingly; though you might find it difficult to get any reputable company to pressure test an item rated at 232 barg WP to over 400 barg!!;)

    I'm assuming that it's got a 300 barg DIN male fitting fitted.

    I used mentioned Din Plugs for many years on 300 Bar even on hot days

    Which was interestig - especially when using a Ram Charger on TAC Gun's ;)

    Never had or aware of any issues with these blocks - As Stated they are built for Double stated stamp - Limit

    Before upgrading to Air Gun Blocks - Which Only need Testing every Five Years instead - instead Din which need

    Which need testing every two years -
