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.

Daystate Air Bottle Question

    I've recently bought an FAC .22 Daystate Airwolf and after changing from a HW100KT I find it rather heavy so I'm wondering if the air bottle that's fitted is bigger than a non-FAC 12 ft lb Airwolf bottle. The bottle on mine is 60mmx 3150mmm (where it enters the regulator) which seems a pretty big bottle (not sure of the cc).

    I'm also not sure how many shots I'd get out of it running at 30 ft lbs as I tend to top it back up to 220 bar when I get back from using it rather than letting it run down to a certain level before refilling.

    So can anyone give me the answers to the questions below:

    What size bottle is fitted to mine?
    What should I let it run down to before refilling (without any loss of power/performance)?
    How many shots should this give me from full?
    Is 220 bar the optimum pressure?
    Is the bottle smaller on a non-FAC model, if so what size?
    How many shots would I get fitting a smaller bottle?

    Sorry for all the questions :eek:

    I think it's 500cc bottle also an option on the 12ftlb
    you can go down to 100bar with no loss of power.
    Fill pressure on mine is 230bar. Each gun has it's own pressure test stamp on the side of the breech.
    The rest I don't have a clue mate :confused:

    Thanks Jim, your right about the bottle size being 500cc so I could fit a 400cc perhaps to make it lighter. I'll try and run it down to 100 bar to see how many shots this gives me then I can work out how many I should get with the 400cc bottle and decide if it's worth doing or not.

    Thanks again

    If your measurements are correct:
    The bottle on mine is 60mmx 3150mmm
    then I'm not surprised it's heavy, you must struggle to fit it in your car at that length.

    As above, sounds like a 500cc cylinder. Going to 400cc will save you some mass and reduce your shot count to about 80%. In addition DS have started fitting Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic cylinders to the Wolverine; one of these may well fit although don't expect it to be cheap.

    The only way you'll truely know the answer to your other questions is to stick a full string of shots over the chrono from 230bar ;)

    I think the 400cc 12ftlb bottle is only rated at 200 Bar so you'll possibly lose a few more shots.
