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.

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.

    Get a breech for it when you fit a scope...those pro blox mounting things are crap,buy a proper breech with a rail cut into it, a good scope would be the JSR Compact scope,its very small but decent mag and clarity.I would also open up the gun and do a bit of polishing and honing.

    thank you. also, it says 'up to 460 fps' on the packaging but the guy in the shop said not to believe it. do they make them weaker for the UK market or something? all I want is the full 6 ft pounds and all it can do

    Gmac stocks all the stuff you need. Get the trigger and adjuster as well, and follow Mattyts`s advice.

    Steel breech and P-Rod trigger frame, will cost you same again as the gun price but will both be well worth it.

    For some ideas check my website on my sig.

    do these steel breeches have scope rails on them? the gmac site and others don't mention it at all. also, what does a muzzle flip do?

    The breeches do have scope rails milled in. I thought it was stated, but I haven`t checked since I bought mine quite a while ago.I think some state they`re suitable for fitting open sights. Muzzle flip is when the gun flips on firing, usually upwards. Not really necessary on an air pistol, IMHO. Looks nice though!

    right then. I got the long breech with hollow probe and now I'm wondering about this jsr guntuff pistol scope to go on it. anyone recommend it or not? I couldn't see one on Gmac (although I am viewing the site on a mobile) also would anyone recommend using a power Spring without an adjuster?

    wouldn't recommend a "power spring" at all unless your running hpa at pressures above 1200psi

    sounds like the leade on the barrel wants a polish what pellets are you usingi also find the hollow probes/extended probes need about an 1/8" taking off the back to give more room to load pelletsped

    taking off the back you say, not the probe end itself? would that be why I also can't cock it with the spring guide in aswell?

    no that sounds a different issue,when you take it off the back it allows the probe to go further back giving more room to load pelletsnot being able to cock it with the guide is probally due to the spring being coil bound(i take it you've fitted a stronger spring which will give you no benefit at all on co2)ped
