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.

    Ok so what's done on a Daystate service in particular an Airwolf CDT pre LCD screen? I emailed Daystate asking for the history of my rifle and they came back with the response below so I'm wondering what they'd do on the service and how they'd get the power back up as it's currently running at just over 30 ft/lb?

    I've tried the guns electronic power adjustment which lowers the power ok but only increases it to the 30 ft lb it's currently set at .

    Daystate reply:

    It appears to have been a glitch in the digitizing of the database as your rifle was a 40 foot pounds supplied to Drapers and had a manufacture date of 30/06/08. It is either set to lower power, using the guns built in power adjuster - or may be in need of a service.

    The valve setup on these can suffer concentricity issues; causing leaks and/or low energy as the resultant deformation of the valve seat restricts flow when the valve is open.. can't think of owt else but that doesn't mean to say there isn't anything.

    Out of round, or oval, concentric I think means equal around the bore or something like that. In other words the valve might be worn :)

    Best way to send it to the factory and have it back properly set to sub12 fpe if this gun is not on FAC ticket.
    Costy, but safe.

    Do you think I'd be doing advertising the fact I've got a 30 ft lb rifle if I didn't have a ticket...........have you read my sig, Doh!

    Don't think I'll be sending it back to Daystate for a service either seeing as it's going to cost me the best part of £200 :eek:

    Your footer is not seen from app.
    So, if it.s on ticket, and u can service the gun yourself, u can just order a nev valve from factory with no prob.

    Aha, the joys of Daystate ownership!

    I agree about the 12lb comment... you said Daystate sent it out as a 40ft-lb rifle to Drapers (Nottingham), so it has ALWAYS been on ticket from the day it was put together.

    For a reasonable cost service, give dave a ring at Staffordshire Custom Rifles. He worked at Daystate for years and is the chap they send most of the service work to...you send it to daystate, they send it to dave, he sends it Daystate with a bill, they return it to you with a bit added on the bill for organising the whole thing. So dodge the middle man and send it direct to SCR (or at least give him a ring and see if it is a price more to your liking).

    Other Daystate workshops exist and as it is an 08 rifle you have no warranty issues to worry about. On an electronic rifle they plug it into a laptop and twiddle a few knobs....plus new O-rings at about 20p for the lot. If you are going to replace the O-rings I know Daystate often send them out for the cost of an SAE. The valve might need replacing after that length of time, but again they aren't mega bucks.
