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.'

    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 need to fit a new LCD display and screen to my Combro - in other words, I am replacing the casing and the original bits need to come out of the old case and fit into the new.

    Anyone know how it all comes apart and is reassembled?

    Thanks in anticipation ...

    I had a look at the site for the instructions and it appears to work although my (newly updated) browser needs a plug in to show it - probably the Flash player.
    Most people seem to dissassemble them by shooting them although there is a less destructive way, from memory there's 3- 4 screws plus the bolt that clamps the 2 parts together.

    Mmmm. Can't get the link to work; it says website will be up and running in a few days time. It is quite easy to take out the two sets of screws but removing the LCD display and the screen is a mystery ...!

    So, I have the bits and just need a little help. Has anyone actually ever changed the casing? My sticking point is the removal of the LCD unit and the screen.
    The instructions link on the website says I need a plugin but not which one! I have reinstalled Adobe Flash Player but obviously that is not the one I need.

    Might need Shockwave. I get severely annoyed when the browser (or anything else for that matter) 'updates' itself and then things just stop working. I just tried IE 11.0.96**** and the videos play in that although I had to enable a Java plug in when I started it - I never use IE myself but in this case it does work.

    i took mine apart with a BSA, and put it back together with araldite. it wasnt me being carless but more the barrel clamp wasnt inline with the chrono half, (the up and down was fine but the left to right was a good few degrees out) i had to scrape and sand the T- and its slot to get them in line.

    it sounds like you need to run a different browser.
    Works fine for me on Firefox.

    Why not send it back to Combro? I believe their usual repair charge is less than a tenner even for someone who has shot the thing! Give them a ring or email and save yourself the effort.

    Its an easy job to swap the casings, undo the screws and swap the innards over, very easy, 5 mins work.

    Have you actually done it John? The screen and LCD unit needs to become detached from the original casing; how did you do it?
