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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    'Behaviour

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    never had problems with my fill adapter? i have the s400 classic also the hw100 wont do anything the s400 cant do its a stunningly accurate and reliable rifle and lighter than the hw100. i always have and still do think the hw100 is over weight, over complicated, over engineered and over priced

    I've only just got my 410 and it is a little more quirky than my old BSA but not what you would call a problem...I'm assuming the 400 and 410 have the same filling mechanism..

    You can't go wrong with an S400 / S410, fella. I don't know what the bloke in the shop was on about.

    I've had both
    the s410 older type of filling adapter was a pain in the arse and you couldn't help scratching the silencers
    however the newer T bar connector is spot on and works fine
    the hw100 is a cracking rifle though. I don't think it's ' over ' engineered just very well engineered and probably has the best loading cocking mechanism out there
    just my thoughts on the subject

    I suspect he wanted to steer you to a product he either has in stock or makes more profit on. Don't take advise from a salesman.

    LITTLE - the merest smear, little like you cannot see it- if you know it is on, you have put on too much - silicon grease. A blob the size of a pin head is enough to do 5 rifles (2 o rings each - that is how little I mean).

    S400 or 410 no problem with them.

    Silicon grease or silicon spray wooed round. wd40 no good it evaporates also highly combustible under high pressure like diesel.

    Yes that's what I was thinking he wanted to sell you a dearer rifle has to be.

    i dont oil the filler seal as its its cheap and easy to replace anything combustible under 180 bar of pressure is going to ignite! it also atracts dust and grit particles which could get into your rifle. i keep mine dry and give it a good blast with a large puffer bulb before filling

    I've heard stories of some idiots snapping the T-bar off but that's about it. I like the early fitting on the air arms, its the same as my Logun Mk1, which works well as long as you take the silencer off first.
