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.

    Just a query for the Crosmanitis sufferers.

    What would you consider to be the first & most important mod to undertake/standard part to replace with a custom one on a Crosman 2240?

    Steel breech every time.
    If you have the 2240 with the lasered serial number on the side you could go for the rear breech screw style breech which also needs the notched hammer. This breech is much much easier to load pellets into.
    Breech here:
    http://www.gmaccustomparts.com/epag...97/Products/AS2250A013&ViewAction=ViewProduct
    Hammer here: (Or mod a standard one)
    http://www.gmaccustomparts.com/epag...3197/Products/2300-050&ViewAction=ViewProduct

    Don't forget if you need any stainless or brass screws let me know as I have the full rebolt kits in stock.

    Well, it arrived this morning. Well chuffed with this 100% pristine pistol and after a few shots down the garden I've got a big smile on my face.

    @ Droid - it has the lasered serial number on the LHS of the action so I'm looking at getting that breech & hammer. The breech is a no-brainer as it has dovetails so I can chuck a red-dot on it (or a decent wee scope).

    Would you recommend the Gmac hollow pellet probe guys?

    Also, are there foregrips available for the 2240 as I'm thinking of making a mini carbine by chucking on one of the bog-standard shoulder stocks for sh1ts & giggles :)

    Egg, no there are no off the shelf foregrips for the 2240 but I do have a modified one here you can have mate. It is a shortened 2250 one with a cut out.
    I have a stock here too perfectly good just has a couple of holes drilled in it where someone added a cheek rest.

    I can do you the pair at £12 delivered if any good to you. For £15 total I can include a stainless rebolt kit too.

    Here is the stock:

    I always fit a after market breech and secondly rework the trigger

    i generally use holloxw probes but extended ones work as well but would recommend taking about 3mm of the back to give more room for loading pellets

    if egg doesn't want the stock gary I'll be interested

    Oh Christ almighty, the plug's come out of my slush-fund :lol:

    I'll take the package off you Gary (sorry ped) - might as well start the drain of funds on the cheap while I can :D

    Another question: 10" barrel to replace the standard one. Is it worth it?

    A 10" may get you a tad close to or slightly over limit mate especially in .22.

    Drop me a PM and I will get the stock and screws out to you mate.

    PM sent :)

    As to that 6 ft/lb limit - are the "power adjusters" any good or is it better to go with a softer spring? That's assuming a longer barrel's put in.
