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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

Diana P1000 review

    I upgraded my Diana Model 35 with T05 trigger to P1000S couple of weeks back and will use this thread to share my experience and its performance with everyone. I understand the initial Diana P1000 had some issues with the valve assembly, but I was told the issues had been fixed.

    I purchased Diana P1000S 0.22 along with Hill Pump MkIII. The gun and the cylinder has manufacturing date of jan 2014. Have installed MTC viper 6-24x56 which I believe is a good match for this gun.

    Initially the spread was not very consistent and was not really happy with the gun. However on guidance from a good friend of mine using a fishing line I made a pull-through and cleaned the barrel with clean dry cotton cloth. Barrel cleaning really helped reduce the spread.

    I have used H&N FTT 14.xxGrn, H&N Baracude at 21.xxGrn and RWS Superdome at 14.xxGrn but Diana P1000 just like any other PCP shines with JSB's both 16 & 18 Grain. The spread at 50 yards is close to 1/2 inch, basically all the pellets would just make the initial hole bigger. Another good thing is that you get this accuracy across the entire cylinder fill cycle. Have already fired more than 5000 pellets through it and it is performing with same consistency and accuracy.

    Only complaint i have with the gun is with the 14pellet magazine. While the single shot cartridge works fine the 14 pellet magazine has a tendency to skip pellets in between shots.

    Will share are more details soon.

    I'm sure cycling problems with the magazine was one of the issues that was supposed to be sorted now but it would seem not.

    Crushingly disappointing from Diana. Weihrauch really set the bar by getting the 100 bang on right the first time straight off production. BSA failed and have suffered for it. Looks like Diana are learning the same lesson whilst the HW100 marches on.
