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.

    Thank you.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    Hi all
    This snippet of information is for those who are new to air rifles, for those who are experienced I invite you to add your own experiences views or corrections as you see fit

    We will start with the term 'dieseling' and putting this in simple terms isnt going to be easy, A diesel engine is an oil burner, diesel fuel is an oil, add a lot lot of pressure in an enclosed enviroment and you have explosive results, now a diesel engine is capable of withstanding this kind of punishment but an air rifle will suffer serious damage if it is subjected to dieseling over a period of time.
    Dieseling happens naturally in new air rifles especially in spring powerd rifles and will disappear after a few hundred shots, over oil a springer and I guarantee you will diesel causing damage to the seals hence costing you a repair.
    You should only use gun grade oils if and only if you have to strip your gun down anything else will diesel.


    Notes on dry firing..............DONT!!!!

    One way to really foul-up the insides of your gun (springers especially) is to fire your air rifle without a pellet loaded in the breach. Beleive me when I say this it makes my spine itch when I hear an air rifle go off like a cannon especially when i am sat next to them at the shooting club.

    Happy trails

    David

    Oil should never be used on the internals of a gun.
    Only good quality grease.
    And a gun will not diesel being over greased.
    It will only diesel if any gets in front of the piston seal. :D

    I went to a place in Reading where they told me not to grease at all ...

    I know that's not right.

    Hi Paperbag Writer how are you

    I dont know who spoke to you but any metal-to-metal contact needs some lubrication, I can only surmise that they dont want the gun to diesel or that they have never had reason to grease a gun in the first place
