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.

    For anyone who have followed my orrigional post. I have now finished the gun, have fitted a Backpacker tube and a flat top piston and valve + hollow extended probe, the .22 barrel is 19ins long. a new transfer port seal. As I wanted to keep it as lite as possible, I have used a Hawke 3-7 by 20 scope & a HW mod, it is now just over 4 lb in weight. With 13 pumps, it shows an average of 11.17 foot pounds. And no more of those expensve Co2 bottles. I am well pleased with the result. Thanks to all, for the advice you have given me, a special thank's to ped. Bob.

    All I want now, is some better weather, and time to get out in the fields, and some bunny's to come out to play. Bob.

    looking good bob fitting velcro to either the tube or pump arms a wise move if you're hunting with her
    with mine i wondered about setting it up so if i pumped her 20 times i could get two full powered shots might put a .25 barrel on her and try it when i've more time
    hope she shoots as well as she looks

    Thank's for the post. Have set the little scope at 25yds, under cover, no wind, from a resting position, and apart from the odd flyer, groups on a target the size of a 10p. I am now toying with the idea of going the other way, and doing another one in .177, as I have a lot of the parts left over from several old guns. What I like is the weight, can carry it all day long. A friend of mine has a top of the range springer, you require a JCB to carry it around. PS. As you said the flat top makes a big difference. Bob.

    Update as I made a mistake when testing, I had the wrong pellet weight dialed into the crono, re tested at an average of 11.17 foot pouds, any more than 13 pumps gives no power increase, the valve just retains air, so will not do anything else, so the gun remains legal. Left it pumped up over night, with no air loss. Bob.

    Well so much for not doing any thing else to it, and keeping it lite. Have put my Nikko on it, and now toying with night vision. Must have some kind of mental health problem. This could turn out to be expensive, but I do enjoy playing. Bob

    Well, Honest Bob told a fib, said I was not going to do anything else to the gun, well after more testing, was not happy with the groups at 25yds, so removed the 19inch barrel and put the 14inch back on, replaced the Nikko with the little Hawke 3-7 by 20. lost some power, now 10.5 foot pounds, more than enough for my requirements, and now after testing it is spot on, now lite compact and accurate. Once again, thank's to all, for the advice with this project. Bob. Hibrid.jpg
