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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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 went to my local gunshop to borrow a chrono to test my new Patriot and buy some pellets. Doug the affable gent whom I've done a lot of business with says "I've got something to show you." Out he comes with this pint size gun, "That's a kids gun" I said, "and you have a 8yr old kid do you not?" he replied. The light bulb went on!

    He tells me he it shoots about an inch high and he think the velocity is about 400fps, .177cal and made in Czechoslovakia. "it yours as is for $25". I take less than a second to decide "I'll skip the pellets and buy the gun" the only fly in the ointment being how I'm going to break this to "she who must be obeyed!"

    I get the gun home and shoot it, it seems a bit harsh and chrono it at about 320fps average. I thought let's strip and relube it and give it a mild tune. Once apart I see that the gun is devoid of any lubrication. I degrease all the parts polish the piston lands, trigger/sear contact faces. I appropriately lube all the working parts and reassemble.

    Cocking the gun is much smoother, the trigger although still a bit heavy was much smoother. Shooting it revealed an increase in velocity to about 396fps average-not bad for about an hours handiwork! I then shoot the gun to sight it in and assess its accuracy. Although the rearsight is adjusted all the way down the gun still shot an inch high out to 20yards, the windage was off which was corrected by drifting the rearsight.

    With some familiarisation I was able to group the gun 1" with a ten shot group-I was elated. I'm pleased to have found a little bargain that I can introduce my Son to shooting, in fact I get a kick out of shooting the thing myself. "She who must be obeyed" found out which put me on her Censored list but she'll get over it!:D
