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 Huntsman Regal Transfer Port.

    Currently confined to bed after a accident and will spend most of this winter on crutches.

    Motivation time. ;)

    I have a old project on a FAC Regal I want to complete this winter, shot count is crap, 10-12 per fill.
    I have amassed quite a few spares, springs, hammer, Huma reg etc. I think I can cobble a workable solution together but am unsure about the Transfer Port, size, screw regulated etc.
    Anyone have any info?
    I cannot strip the Regal at the moment due to being stuck in bed. Just trying to get some info.

    Thanks Gary

    Sorry to hear of your situation!

    IMO when setting up any regged gun:
    - Go as large as you can on the port.
    - Set the reg pressure high and test off-reg / below this pressure to find the velocity peak pressure.
    - Set muzzle energy on striker at peak pressure as necessary and re-test to find new peak pressure (will be lower if striker energy is reduced, higher if it's increased).
    - Set reg to velocity peak pressure.
    - Chuck it all back together - job done!

    Tbh I very much doubt you'll get more efficiency out of the gun and can only hope for so much from the pitifully small cylinder, however for a given output enlarging the port will give you a lower ideal operating / reg setpoint pressure.

    Be aware that the effective transfer port diameter is determined by the smallest point in the system; so the size of the port in the barrel, bush and exhaust valve housing need to be matched (and there's no point in going larger on one than the rest are).

    Also be aware that Daystate have a habit of drilling their ports very close to the valve seat area; so if over-boring the valve body check that it's not going to break through into the valve seat.

    Have fun ;)

    Thanks Cloverleaf, your post is valuable. The rifle is a 40ft/lbs version. I guess all the porting is at its maximum. I was thinking I might have to reduce.
    The Regal was a 60 birthday present from my wife, I cannot sell it even though she made the wrong FAC choice. I will muddle along over the winter and hopefully find a compromise.

    Daystate themselves only quote 15 shots for the factory regged 40ftlb version and you might well get similar results with a strip & polish without adding a regulator so I think you'll have to reduce the power to increase the shot count.
    Robert Lane has some vids on YouTube which cover setting up regulators which are very good.
    I have both 30 & 40ftlb non regged Regals so am very interested to see how you get on. Best wishes for a speedy recovery too.
