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.

    Hi guys, quick question, how effective are the moderators that you can buy for co2 pistols? I quite like the baretta 92f and understand that they kick out quite low power (2ftlbs?) so could be used in the back garden or even indoors with a proper back stop. I was just wondering if the moderator actually dampens the muzzle report or if its just for show? Thanks in advance :)

    Well on my CP88 its very much just for show. It's just a straight tube. More of a 'loudener' if anything.

    CO2 appears to have quite a high expansion ratio and hence doesn't lend itself well to being "silenced" - especially on short-barrelled guns with small, low-volume mods.

    The small mods sold for CO2 guns don't seem to be particularly effective; however I suspect an HW mod on an appropriate adaptor might yield some decent results :)

    I fitted a a 1/2" unf adapter onto my Beretta 92 FS (the barell was prethreaded) onto which you can then screw a suitable Silencer/Moderator. Pity is I then sold it to get the Storm!
    By preference I used the Deben series 150 or 180 which lowered the high report of the FS92 and also my Crosman 2240 to a low level that had to be heard to be believed. It was expensive at 7 notes for the adapter and another 45 or so for the deben ones I use but the result to me was worth it and I have now got a 10-15m plinking range in the back garden where the complaining neighbours can't hear me unless they are within my boundary fence.
    I am told that any stubby type silencer/moderator (NOT an air stripper which will do nothing to supress sound) will also work effectively.
    Just above a phut! 2lb you say yours gives....I would get it chronoed and serviced if that is all it can do because both of mine are just below the legal pistol limit.
    Garden shooting/plinking.....Yes, I also use a 4 inch thick timber backstop with a loosely hung heavy canvas tarpaulin in front of it in a shallow U shape (with a roof) in front of my target holder posts. I erect a gazebo with side curtains to shoot from too if the neighbours are out enjoying the sun so they cannot see me! Best of all is the local enforcers have seen and approved of it.
    Went on a bit too long but I hope it gives you a help.......

    Silencers on my Crosman co2 and Umarex s&w make a massive difference. I use either a Parker hales mmii or a HW, both work well with the HW best.

    I'd be amazed if an Umarex clone was much over 2.5ftlbs at the most

    Worth Checking out Sound Biters - Small and compact and do make a difference on CO2 Pistols

    Most Umarex Clones have 1/2 UNF Thread adapters
