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.

    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.'

  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.

    Depends what you mean by modded?

    For ease of customisation and availability of parts, it's got to be the Ratty.

    Yeah I should have been a bit more open with the question. I mean stuff like tweaks, customisation and the sorts. I had seen lots about crossman rifles. Especially the 22xx rat busters. Just curious because it's interesting what people do to their rifles.

    You need to exercise some caution with Crosmans. It's dead easy to get carried away and spend a fortune and it'll always be a cheap gun underneath all the mods. Most of the mods are simply bolt on which is what some people want. If you want to get more than just a few basic tools dirty then perhaps a QB78/79. A lot of what they need is basic gunsmithing such as polishing and de-burring rather than bolting on accessories.

    The Crosmans are fairly poor designs to start with whereas the QB is a much better design under it's sloppy manufacturing tolerances. It's ironic that the QB is a Crosman at heart. Crosman dropped the good design principle and went as cheap as possible with it. The Chinese then picked up what Crosman dropped.

    QB78 or XS78 or 79, as the others have said, simple enough to get dramatic results from! Everything will need smoothing and deburring, a good debur, polish and new seals will see a dramatic improvement in both operation and power. Just make sure you have a chrono to test the end result.

    I'm another in favour of the XS/QB range, absolutely brilliantly easy to work on, If I've got to keep only one pre-charge (my XS79 is converted to HPA) it will be the XS79 I keep.

    I've bought a hundred of every seal it uses and can re-build it completely in under 10 minutes.

    Don't listen to other bad opinion, buy one and try it yourself, they're £115 at my local RFD, I think I'm going to get another as my little un has tried to lay dibs on this one, I'll leave it as a C02 though as it will be lighter for her.

    Sorry to hear about your HW by the way - that was a wicked pisser!

    If going QB79 and HPA look at the costs and then look at a secondhand S200. The QBs are great for the money but will never be a S200 beater. The CZ barrel on the S200 is absolutely match grade. You'll struggle to say that about the QB. If going QB keep the costs sensible.

    Should mention I am not looking to get one lol. Splashed the last of my pocket money on the Mod 60s :rolleyes:

    Just a curio to see what is modifiable, tweakable and such. and to get peoples experience (maybe some hardware pr0n too ;) ) of it all.

    That's pretty ingenious. How long is a average put together take apart routine?

    Most mods can be done with basic hand tools and wet and dry
    quick and easy to strip and rebuild
    the serious stuff a lathe can be handy
    cheers

    I had a 2240. Found it loud and wasted gas. I like the Hassan at44.
    In my country we don't have fac laws so on the hatsan you can push it right up or bring it down to 12fpe. It's really basic inside

    The AT44 are good the new ones have anti tamper fitted which is a bit od a pain to drill out
    cost around 3x what the QB guns cost so more expensive if you cock up
    I always convert mine to HPA as I am not a fan of Co2
    cheers

    I have just received my project at44. Stripped it. It's missing parts. Had two transfer ports fall out as I opened it.
    Really awesome rifles here in south Africa as we don't have Fac restrictions only calibre.
