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.

    Making my own PCP

    So basically I have one of these an air suspension pump for my mountain bike and the probe for my bsa r10 mk2 is exactly the same size as pump which you would screw onto your suspension or u could pump bike tyre or car tyre with basically so was wondering wot your guys thoughts would be if I got some of the metal taken off and re threaded so it would screw on and off the probe making this a cheap and safe pcp pump.

    Thoughts and comments welcome

    to Pump a gun cylinder to 2000-3000PSI?

    You'd be lucky if it made 70PSI before exploding.

    Taken from Halfords website:

    Bikehut Suspension Shock Pump

    The Bikehut Suspension Shock Pump provides the setup and adjustment of the air pressure in air sprung suspension systems. Quick and simple to use, this shock pump is ideal for suspensions which are in need of a boost in air pressure.
    Bikehut Suspension Shock Pump Extra Info:

    Inflates up to 300 psi
    Featuers a gauge for precise inflation.
    Not suitable for the inflation of bicycle tyres.
    Bleed value promotes accurate adjustment of shock pressure.
    Over inflation of the suspension system will damage the shock.

    I think you're confusing 300 PSI with 300 BAR ... 300 BAR = 4351 PSI, no where near 300 PSI An R10 buddy bottle is a 232 BAR fill (granted they are tested well over this, but you're regulator wont be set up for anything higher) so you'd need a pump that can handle 3365 PSI or 300 BAR.

    Hi unclesparks the falcon is also light, I have had an FN19 multi shot and the FN12 skeleton both were fantastic air rifles, are yours 12ft/lb models, both mine were FAC had them from new as well supremely accurate nothing ever ran away both mine were .22.
    my only criticism I would have was with the mags for the multi shot guns they were a bit fiddly came with a funny little brass thing that sat on your finger when loading the mags so the pellet did not fall through.

    but yeah fantastic air rifles, Fenland Rural Sports here in Cambridgeshire has a brand new falcon not the Prarie it is a very early FN that was never sold, the shop owner Bill Hodges loves everything guns so he has some very early new stuff that he has collected but never sold on, it truely is an aladins cave for shooters.

    Being new to air rifles 2 weeks ago I bought a secondhand walther Rolex rm 8 from Blackpool air arms . After using it a couple of times I've notice that the pressure slowly drops when I haven't used it . Is this a problem or does it do that when not used for a couple

    It has a leak. It probably needs new seals. If you have a warranty ask them to fix it.

    If not advice on how to do it yourself will be forthcoming. :)

    I bought an Omega Supercharger compressor.. Wonderful bit of kit, saves me trips to the dive shop.. Purchased a real nice 3 lt bottle and got shot of the bigger one. I also charge up my mates bottles too.. Best thing I ever purchased.. was the price of a high end pcp, but worth every penny.. (Purchased and delivered form Pellpax)..

    So how much was it and how long before it has paid for itself?

    It was a expensive purchase I admit.. £1600, but really the price of a top pcp.. And nothing was really floating me boat as I already have a HW100KT, S410TDR, Brocock Compatto and a HW44 Pistol.. And more than happy with them as it is.. So purchased the Omega Supercharger instead.. No more trips to Diving centre ;).. Its luxury really.. I do my mates bottles for a fiver.. (and they get full proper 300Bar fills).. Wonderful bit of kit! Peter.. Just do what I did, stop drinking, smoking, gambling and [​IMG]:eek: hookers, um and maybe food for a few months.. Oh and tell the other half it was £160..;)

    if my yoke fitting regulator metre is broken will it stop filling my PCPs. It’ll only pressurise the hose and stops at around 1100 psi but it’s not filling my guns. I’m pretty new to PCPs so I’m rather confused as to why it’ll pressurise the hose but not fill my guns. Any advice is more than welcome. TIA. P. S. My scuba tank has plenty of air in it. I understand that the pressure reading it’s giving of 1100 psi is just what’s in the gun. I turn it up ( air valve ) but nothing. I also know about turning it on very slowly but still nothing. I have an airarms S310 and a SMK PP700SA pistol. Neither of the guns will take any air. Please please help. I’ve filled my airarms before and it charged lovely but now, nothing. At first i thought it was my new PP700SA so i tried my airarms and the same thing , the gage on the scuba tank just sits around 1100 psi.

    as above your tank might be empty, so it doesnt have the pressure to fill the gun
