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.

    Is it possible to convert the CP2 Mechanism into a PCP. By this i mean removing the Co2 cartridge system and valve system and replacing it with a PCP system (Like that of the PP800)?

    Please do not suggest taking the PP800 mech and putting it in the CP2 body. I already know this is possible. But for the mod i am wanting this is not an option.

    It’s probably possible but why bother ?
    With all that time and expense wouldn’t it just be easier to flog the cp2 and get a pcp?

    I have physical problems and want a lightweight pcp. I have not found any pcp rifle anywhere near as close to the light weight of the CP2.

    What do you want to do with a pcp that you can’t with C02?
    Not being a dick, genuinely interested in what you think you will gain..

    A co2 gun holds pressure at @ 850psi

    a pcp holds pressure at @ 3000 psi

    would I put that kind of pressure into a home- build “conversion” and put it next to my head?

    errrr no :eek:

    my thought.... sell or part exchange the co2 and get a proper purpose made pcp. :thumb:

    less chance of hurting yourself

    there’s stacks of ultra light pcps available

    Not allowed to talk about it here. Have a look at my previous thread though that was locked and you will understand :)

    This cold weather might show the limitations of CO2.

    Who said i was going to do the work myself? All i asked is, is it possible to convert it. Don't forget that the CP2 and PP800 are identicle mechs other than one is Co2 and one is PCP. It stands to reason it is capable. It's jsut a question of is it doable as a mod.

    More to the point, read my previous post. I want a lightweight pcp rifle.

    I'm not asking advice of what you or anyone else thinks i should do or anyone's opinion. All i want to know is, is it possible. Like within reason. It's obviously possible. But does anyone know if it's a big difficult job to do or would it be fairly simple?

    You can get airsoft/paintball air tanks that you carry on your belt/put on the bench with a regulator that drops the air down to co2 pressure. I would have thought a system like that would be a good choice for your requirements. I'd have a word with high pressure airsoft and see if they have a 12g co2 conversion drop in system. Have you thought about how you're going to get air into it?

    Can such a system do 11ft/lbs?

    And yes, the plan was to fill like any other PCP rifle. I have a gun smith just round the corner for me. They will fill a 3L tank for £7.

    Absolutely no idea, the whole full power thing has never bothered me because I'm only interested in targets!

    Fair enough! Not familiar enough with the cp2 to know if it's capable of full power on air but I'm sure someone will happen along who is.

    Ive just read some of your previous posts, were you a member here before as there was a trans person asking similar questions a year or two ago?
    I’m gonna bow out and suggest you ask your uncle for advice :thumb:

    As Lev said they are in no way identical “mechs”. One is designed and built to handle four times as much pressure as the other...
    You don’t need 11 ftlb to do target shooting anyway, especially for a beginner, so just stick with what you’ve got.

    Hmmmmm, interesting, since everything above the port is the same. I can imagine the hammer hitting the valve would be different, to at least tensioned different. But i have already looked up full tear downs of both and there is very little difference between the two.

    If you are sure though *Shrugs*

    Just because i don't need it doesn't mean i don't want it xD As i said earlier, i want to be able to do max range target shooting.

    But yeah, if i can't convert this then iunno. i'll have to look into something else as i haven't found any pcp's light enough :(

    Thank's anyways y'all o/

    Excuse me? It's called the internet, Have you not heard of it? It actually has allot of useful information......... Seriously...

    Not sure what you are trying to accuse me of right now in terms of "the game"? But i don't like whatever you are insinuating.

    Also i don't wear a pink ammo pouch because i'm trans. i wear a pink ammo pouch because i like pink -.-

    While there doesn't seem to be any specific wording the legislation around this, the "safe" interpretation seems to be that if it was manufactured as a pistol, that the law will always view it as such. Irrespective of whether you mount it in a rifle stock, you would likely be in trouble if you tune it to greater than the 6 ft/lb limit.

    Of course, you are free to test this in a court of law but it's a high risk strategy.
