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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Accuracy? Without a word of lie last Sunday I was matching the guy next to me with a decent PCP and hitting a metal rectangular bell 2" long by 1" wide suspended by rope from a tree at 65 yards shot after shot after shot. It can be affected by temperature change though but for a CO2 gun it is amazingly accurate. I shoot an Air Arms S400 Classic .22 as well but this gun is far more fun. Some of the guys at our club have used it and say the same thing. We can't quite put our fingers on it but the positive cocking bolt action just may have something to do with it. It was tuned by Ian Lamb and he made an amazing job of it. The action is really silky smooth and makes a very satisfying metallic 'shnick' when cycled. I have two other '78s but at this moment they are very rough round the edges and require a fair bit of work. It's all part of the fun though. Having spent approx £300 inc the original £60 for the gun it should be fun!

    A lot will depend on your engineering skills, if you're reasonably handy, you could get that sort of power for next to nothing by modifying the valve and hammer block etc. yourself. If not, is there an engineering workshop nearby that could do the work for you? If you want to see what's involved, Google 'QB 78 tuning' and you'll find all the gen you need:up:

    You can get a "Tuning Kit" for the "78" from T.R.Robbs (Airgun Specialists) (www.trrobb.co.uk) for £54.00 (including postage) or if you look up Ian Lamb he does the tuning for you. You can contact Ian Lamb by e-mail at: air_rifle_tuning@yahoo.co.uk
    Hope this helps.
