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:

    '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.

    I'm sure its a good one but saying "8mm aperture stops pellet distortion without compromising effectiveness." makes me wonder?

    I'm inclined to think that it becomes less important as you move through the moderator so that the exit hole from the first chamber is as tight as you can get it and then it's possible to go a little larger each time without losing much, if any, of the effect. If you aim for very tight clearance then the accuracy of machining on the mating faces between the barrel and moderator quickly become critical.
    Setting up a rifle so that it uses the absolute minimum of air per shot will also cut the noise so a properly regulated rifle ought to sound quieter than an unregulated one running at double the air pressure.

    They are good silencers, but it's a chunky mod, which I think the volume is making it work rather than the very complex internals;);)

    i find if you blow through 2 tubes of the same length, but different diameters, the smallest diameter tends to sound louder because the air is moving faster:)

    How much are they? As I get older I find it increasingly annoying when you come across websites that are deigned to promote and sell and yet dont have any prices on :mad::mad::mad::mad: when you click on "price list" it takes you to servicing.

    I have a A&M custom silencer on my .25 fac its 35 mm dia by about 6.5 inches it does pretty well and accuracy is not effected in the slightest £50. Some quieter silencers can choke off the air flow and reduce power and accuracy its a bit of a gamble but A&M have a good reputation in the fac world. They are a heck of alot lighter than a donny fl i havent found a report on the donny that raves about the actual performance yet!

    Well for what it is worth i have tried many types of silencer and in fac and in standard 12ft , i must say that if you find a better mod for sound than a bl4de then please tell me because most of my guns are fitted with them i am still saving the pennies for more as i like to fit and not remove once on .
    bla4de has done me proud sound wise they look good and you can get him to make fancy ones but why go fancy and pretty if a standard finish does the same job look at his work .
