    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.

    Hi all abit of a curiosity question regarding my mk2 r10 .77 & having it tuned/ trenched etc. I've heard nothing but super dooper reviews after it has been fiddled with but my question to all is what is actually done to the rifle to increase its already good performance , I can roughly put pellet on pellet at 40 yards & hit the 10mm centre of a rat knockdown target @ about 65 yards. As it is I'm well chuffed with its accuracy & performance with its chosen pellets ( Diablo's ) but is there more room for improvement if so what kind of noticeable improvement would be gained & what kind of funds would I need to achieve what ever one speaks of. Cheers all

    If your R10 is working well imo leave it until you feel it requires a service/tune up.
    This link http://www.xtxair.co.uk/bsa-r-10.php may help as to what XTX Darrin can do with the R10 hth ........................................ :coffee:

    Cheers buddy but how will I know it would need a service / tune etc ? Will there be any significant change in its performance when it's nearing a service or is there a rule of thumbs every 12 months or so. I'm a moderate user definatly once but maybe twice a week shooter but it's an all day outing when I do go. I've checked out Darren's site as regards to tune ups & mods but what is actually gained by having it feltlled with, food for thought & that

    I once got told that a modern PCP rifle should take 1,000's of pellets before it needs a clean and tune. I think Tadpole is saying you should leave it as it is considering it is a good rifle to start with unless it's lost power or sounds off etc. If it aint broke...

    If you find the R10 giving inconsistent results, starts to lose air, pellet probe/magazine is not feeding well or any number of other symptoms this is the time imo to ask Darrin about a ‘tune/service’. This could well be in a couple of years time or you may consider a service once every twelve month. Why not give XTX a call, his number is on the link hth ……………… :coffee:

    When it gets to the stage of requiring attention, the ‘tune/service’ will bring it back to as good if not better than it is now ....... :coffee:

    And i quote:

    "What are the benefits to having a tune up?It is a good way to make sure you are getting the most out of your rifle.
    The tune up generally improves the consistency and therefore the accuracy of the rifle.
    The bolt is modified to make changing magazines easier on Mark 1 R-10s.
    The gun is usually smoother and feels more refined."
