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.

    Hi,I'm quite new to air rifles more used to shot guns,I have an old daystate midas huntsman that I have tried to charge using a stirrup pump.it got to about 2200psi then the pump would not allow me to pull up or push it down.does this mean the rifle is fully charged or is there a problem as it says 3000 psi on the rifle? Any info would be appreciated .thankyou

    2200 PSI is only 150 bar,that's a pretty low working pressure if it's meant to be like that.

    If I'm not able to lift or compress pump handle does this mean the rifle is full. Thanks

    At a guess the fill valve on the gun is stuck.
    How long did it take the pump to lock up?
    The slightest bit of grit can stop a fill valve opening with a pump.

    Have you a mate that can give it a blast with a bottle? If it still won't open fire a load of shots off with the gun and try again with the bottle.

    The valve is very easy to clean should you need too just means emptying the gun.

    Also try the pump on another gun to test that's ok could be a failure in the pump.

    Cheers Andy

    When you reconnect the pump to the gun does the handle move a couple of times before becoming solid. Does a high pressure read on the gauge 140 bar 2000 psi ect.
    Cheers Andy
