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.

    I was just going to ask Mattyts if the stuff used on high temp taps and stuff is the same stuff to use on O rings on airguns?

    Get a tube of this:
    http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/251464348333?cmd=VIDESC&gxo=true

    Plenty enough to last you,it will take a life time to use up.

    Nice one cheers Mattyts, that's the kind of stuff I was looking at on the bay, but its actually like electrical connecter type of silicone based stuff, is that the same of the type of stuff used for O rings?

    Does it matter that much so long as its got silicone content?

    Again,wouldn't risk it,if it's not labelled as o ring friendly it probably isn't.

    Thanks mate but Ive got a full shelf of various Oils and greases for other jobs on my Guns but Im rebuilding a PCP so I specifiaclly want some molykote 111 for the O rings, makes them last longer and seal better, but I cant find any in a tube or something under a tenner for the life of me.

    Silicone would do but some of the O rings have moving parts near or around them so silicone and moving parts don't mix.

    I can get that but apparently molykote 111 has different properties, I can get silicone grease like used in the diving industry or building industry but apparently the molykote stuff is slightly different, its for a hw100 so I want to use then best stuff I can find to make it last as long as possible, its not missed a beat for four years but suddenly dropped 1 ft/ibs so Im guessing the valve seat seal has disintegrated as they do, so Im replacing every O ring on the gun, full rebuild, so I want the best correct stuff poss... its quite complicated once you start researching greases and apparently this stuff is the best for airguns.

    Whilst there are a lot of products will do the exact same job, I appreciate you want the correct stuff.
    Dow 111 is commonly available from US on EBay, but the postage is pretty painful, one of those small plastic pots on a chain for divers to maintain their equipment would be about ten quid - it would last a long time though.

    Here's someone unloading a full size tube on UK EBay for 9.50 with P&P if you're quick: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Molykote-...194?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item43cbca629a

    If you miss it I would keep an eye on the site as they come up now & then.
