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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Thought I'd post up a couple of shots of my latest project as you don't see many of these, picked up for silly money as it needed a bit of a fettle as it was low on power (turned out to be a sh4gged probe o-ring, sorted for less than 10p):
    Cometa1.jpg

    Cometa3.jpg

    Build quality very good and certainly better than the Kral Puncher Breaker I had for a short time, obviously not on a par with AA etc but still solidly built.

    Tweaks:
    Probe o-ring knackered, now replaced and gained the best part of 1 ftlbs
    Shroud was purely cosmetic, now has hair curlers / felt and shroud support ported to make use of the empty volume
    Trigger 1st stage tweaked with a lighter spring to reduce initial pull weight and 2nd stage adjusted to suit

    Yay, welcome to the club!! Mine is a .177 and I've found it prefers a heavier pellet after some extensive testing. Technically the most accurate has been Webley Accupell BUT it was only spitting those out at around 10 ft lbs as they were tight in the breech. Not tried any of the AirArms pellets yet but have discounted pretty much anything by H&N and RWS.

    Hope that helps

    Cheers, I have used H&n Ft which all over the place, now I'm using JSB jumbos in 5.52 its getting a group at 25yards but not that tight and some flyers. My next tin I'll go for heavier pellet and see what that does

    I'd suggest sticking with the Jumbos and getting a bit more lead in the barrel, mine took about 50 shots to start getting accurate and now it's laser accurate. My other thought is only accuracy test single shot, I've found the magazines a bit hit and miss with the odd flyer with known good pellets?

    I like that, I never used to like Black rifles but, since buying my Grandson his Ultra I have found that they've grown on me somewhat.
    @woodyrapid7 has a Black Vulcan Tactic that I think looks the Dog's..

    Here she is post fettle:

    Resprayed the shroud and removed the risers from the picatinny rail as they had a habit of becoming loose and really impacted accuracy, managed to find some high picatinny mounts so the eye alignment is just about right.

    Talking of accuracy:

    25 yards, JSB Heavy - Top group 10 shots from mag (hence the odd flyer), bottom group 5 shot single loaded, literally through the same hole!

    I like these Sandy, glad you got it to where you wanted it to be.
    I do still have a desire to have a pup after that awful experience with an Artemis P15.:up::up:
