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.

    Alright chaps?
    Iv had some cleaning pellets chucked in with my new BKL mounts as I got messed around a bit with delivery!
    I usually use a pull through so never used them..... 1. Are they any good?
    2. Do I need to lubricate them?
    3. I would be using them in my hw100 so do I need to send a pellet through at the same time or is that just springers?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Dunno mate, I used Swan ciggy filters which did the same job at a fraction of the cost (I also use them for their original purpose..... but not for much longer, hopefully :rolleyes:)

    2. First couple probably best to put a couple of drops of lube on them, nothing too extravagant though, just enough to clean the bore.

    3. Fine in a PCP (take the moderator off though so as not to foul the baffles) but a springer/rammer needs a pellet behind it.

    Personally I think a pull-through does a far better job but I only clean the barrels on new rifles, when changing pellet brands or if there's an accuracy issue.

    Awesome egg thanks!
    I'll probably try them once and see if it has the desired effect!

    They worked ok to be fair mate! Pretty similar results to my pull through!,,,,,,,, and in the process i have found out that AA field are super accurate through my rifle! something i was convinced was untrue after previous tests! Strange eh!:confused:

    I will always clean my barrel before any more pellet testing now!!

    How important is it to clean the barrel when changing brands? What happens if you don't? :confused:

    i use vfg felts now & again, i use 2 at a time with a pellet behind them in my pcp's & one at a time with a pellet behind them in my springers no oil just on there own.
    however i use pull thoughs now & then as they are better, then just felts on there own.

    The general consensus is new pellets put a different lead deposit in the rifling from the ones you used before so cleaning the barrel then firing 20-30 of the new brand is best practice before doing any serious zeroing or chrono testing with the new ones.

    I have just changed from Crosman Premier domed to RWS superdomes in my Springer (Crosman Phantom). Am I right in thinking I can clean the barrel by putting a swan fag filter in the breech and then a pellet after it. Fire the gun, and the barrel be sufficiently "cleaned" for changing pellet brands?

    PS - sorry if this sounds like a hijack of the thread, not meant to be! ;)

    Yes that will work but snap a small piece of cocktail stick and put it in the middle of the filter and a pellet behind it do that unitil the barrel is clean
