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.

Important Chrono help?

    Sorry folks, but it's a begging thread. :eek:

    Does anyone (reasonably) local to me have a chrono I can have the use of for a couple of days?

    I don't have a club (yet), but am now the proud owner of a TBT kit for my TX200HC! I'm dying to fit it, but don't want to go messing before I can assure myself that I ain't gonna be doing anything naughty. I've also a Prairie CM in .177 that I'd love to get a reading from, as it seems pretty hot from what I'm used to in a .177. Never owned a PCP before though, so I'm not sure.

    Anyways, I'm in Troon, South Ayrshire, and I'm willing to travel to pick up/drop off/give you a deposit or whatever. Just don't have a ton or so to drop on an F1 at the mo. I'd much rather have an F1 style than a Combro for ranging purposes. It is on my to do list, and I know it's a necessity, but I'm kinda holding out for a deal (hopefully). My eyes are constantly peeled at the moment.

    Anyways, any help (or advice on where to go) greatly appreciated.

    Mick

    I can't help with your current request, however I would suggest that when you are looking for a chrony that you try here: http://www.merlinarchery.co.uk/chrony-chronograph-f-1.html it's the cheapest I've seen them and I've seen them go for more 2nd hand! There is obviously postage on top but still reasonable. I've used merlin before myself too for archery gear and never had an issue with them.
    Hope you manage to get sorted in the mean time!

    Cheers for the link, that is cheap!

    Think I might have to bite the bullet and buy one, and that seems as good a price as I've seen. I've been all over the 'bay etc, and at least that will come with guarantee etc. Doesn't seem to be many coming up second hand at the minute anyways.

    My gran used to live in Troon and I'd be happy to lend you my F1 (with a deposit). Unfortunately I live in Kent. Good luck searching.

    Hello buddy, I fitted my Tbt kit to my 95k last week and managed to chrono it yesterday' it was running 10.67 prior to fitting the kit but it's now running 9.8 so I wouldn't worry to much matey...

    I didn't fit any of the power adjusters on assembly so I'm gonna have to strip it and fit at least one them but I tell you what buddy the difference in the firing cycle since fitting the kit is massive mate !!!

    Hi, mate.

    Ended up buying myself a Combro in the end. I've had my TX in bits more times than I can count now, fettling all the wee bits 'n pieces. Ended up with the 13mm piston extension too, makes a helluva difference! Sits just dandy at 11.4-11.5fpe now.

    I was right about the Falcon too, it was sitting at 13.8! Had to drill out the AT in the end to wind her back in, but got there in the end. Bit nerve wracking taking a drill to the thing, but needed done.

    Well I took it apart again today and fitted both the power adjuster washers, I put one at the top hat end and one on the spring guide with a wee bit'o lube again and re-assembled her and she's now shooting as sweet as a nut at 11.2 so jobs a good'n...

    I must say the ole Tbt kits are well worth the £20, I will certainly fit one to my next rifle as I'm now thinking of getting rid of the PCP I've got and buying a .22/80k to go along side the .177/95k but we'll see !
