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.

    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.'

  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.

Advice Crosman Insanity set

    Hi all,
    There is light at the end of the tunnel, having cured myself of crosmanitis,
    mainly due to repeatedly banging my head on the kitchen table chasing tiny springs and ball bearings around the floor and snapping my .50tho allen key between breech changes and recreating a snowstorm in my garage with a co2 cylinder.
    I now intend to spend more time shooting that in the workshop so, I need to clear out some kit to stop me slipping.
    I need some advice, I have a recipe for insanity, 99% of a crosman 2240 with a spare 2250 cylinder case and a complete King Rat AS2250 with 12oz cylinder stock.
    I would like to raise cash to get a HW45 (£150 - 200), so whats the best way? to be honest, neither guns are in pristine condition and I don't know if I should advertise on ebay as parts or find a collector who wants spares as a job lot.

    So, opinions please........

    (I'm still keeping a brace of 1322 pistols and a 2240 carbine so I'm not totally cured:))

    Hi, yes working but not the prettiest. not used or tested so selling as bits or swap etc.
    Metal breech,T.R.Robb 4mm transfer port and a stupid custom extended probe that makes loading a pain.valve had some threds cut and angled for more power.

    12g co2 butstock mounted on a m4 butt and a 12oz co2 tank buttstock with rap4 adaptor as spare.
    Not been chronoed. Sat doing nothing at moment.
    50.thou screw included but not attached due to demise of allen key.
    I think some one makes slotted breech screws on ebay which is a good idea.
    Looking for some ideas for getting rid, the 2240 just needs some screws and a seal for the valve.

    If you selling I would spilt the bits down and sell that way. If your worried about getting left with bits there is always eBay, I've sold nearly all my ratty bits this way and just left with a hpa king rat

    Hi, I liked the idea of using 12g co2 so got a 88g to 12g co2 adaptor then mounted a m4/m16 paintball stock over the adaptor so you screw the stock on with co2 powerlet inside. Works ok for 30 odd shots.then you need to unscrew and start again.
    So you guys recommend selling as bits on ebay rather than s one job lot?

    Just beware using E=Bay- they removed an incomplete and not working 1377 I put on recently, despite stating `spares or repairs only` in the description. I did manage to flog loads of other bits, though.

    Hello,
    you wanted to see some pictures? :)
    ok, I have a album called 2240 crosman project, go have a look. My computer is hamster powered but I'll try and put them on to the proper page with date etc.
    Still not sure which direction to go in, There are some good points and bad points and I don't want to mislead people but I think someone will get a good deal.

    have already stated i am interested in the 12g co2 buttstock if the price is right
    if you decide to sell on here you need to start a new thread in sales
    but first dibs on the 12g co2 buttstock ;)
    I must have about 80 x 12g co2 caps to use up and cant sell them on here as no courier will carry the bloody things:(

    king ratty should fetch around £130-£150 with the hpa adapter and 9oz co2 bottle as long as it's in good nick
    2240 if it's a bit rough and needs a reseal and some work probally £25-£40 depending on how rough it is
    these are for guns with un modified valves(i've bought a few in the past with valves that were un useable due to people trying to mod them)
    hope this helps ped
