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.

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.

    Hi all,

    Well, I’m still working but having time when I’m home to get on with a few of those “project rifles” I have scattered about the house.
    I picked up a nice 95 of here that was in really good condition and gave it a little tidy up.
    I took the stock back and did a few minor repairs, then used Colron Danish oil, Jackobean dark oak for only two coats followed by about 6 coats of Red Kite oil and I was happy enough. Bit of a different look but I like it.

    Up close the grain has really come out 8557E008-B17B-4938-9BDA-4777832B0D1A.jpeg
    @bl4de mod over the standard HW one. Not everyone’s taste but I like things a little different.
    Cleaned up inside, little polish, TBT guides and piston sleeve. power at 11.2 now which is a little high for me with a springer but if it works, role with it.

    At work today where I am allowed to have a plink and a little pest control. I’d tested a few pellets and there wasn’t much between the usual ones i use in .177. JSB Heavys, Barracuda hunter extreme, sovereigns but one clear winner was Crosman Premiers! Very tight fit but seemed to be pellet on pellet at 25yards and at 37yards which is my max they wasn’t too bad either.

    after I zero’d at only 25 yards I put a 5p black mark on the card. Fired 4 shots and couldn’t work out if I’d missed most of them. then noticed that they all went through the same hole. Put another mark on the card next to it and put another 4 through the next hole. Happy as Larry :cool:

    At 37 yards I can hide them under a 5p. Little to no wind resting off a bench using a cheapo BSA Scope 3-9x40.

    (Does anyone know if Crossman Prems are made by Anyone else under a different label?)

    Thanks for reading :thumb:

    @littleJon365 ... Nice shootin mate! I believe Accupels are same as Crosman Premiers.
    As a sidebar - the Crosman Premiers 7.9 grain in the 1250 count box are better than the ones in the tins; they also come in 10.5 grain in box as well.
    Cheers

    The .177 95 is a much maligned rifle.
    When sorted, It's possibly the best break barrel currently in production.

    I think I got lucky when testing as I only tried a few and then got a decent group. I always seem to try the heavy pellets so didn’t bother with the standard JSB’s but will see how they compare, although I only have the smaller head size so maybe they won’t be as good. Guess another testing session is required

    Cheers Mark,

    Thanks. You are right, they are Web Accupels as I’ve just looked through the FT ones I have and the standard ones which all have the same style/look to them. A bit cheaper badged as crossmans though.
    Didn’t know they did them in a box? What’s the difference in the box as they all seem pretty good quality in the tin?

    Boxed are all from same die# ; tinned pellets are ( I'm told) mixed die lots. Were ( in box)@ one time go - to field target pellet. Generally pretty good in HW barrels.

    It does seem marmite to a lot of people. I had one years ago that I didn’t get on with due to my lack of understanding. many rifles later and a lot of educating myself on how to shoot a springer with some patience chucked in and I’ve found them very rewarding to shoot. Glad I picked this one up now. I was planning on getting the power down to mid 10’s where I like my Springers but as it’s shooting well I won’t touch it now.
    I’d agree that it’s up there as one of the best break barrels, my sorted 99 is on par with it and is hard to beat.

    Ok, I always assumed the batch numbers on the backs of the tins were meaning they came from the same batch/die. I’ll have to have a look into that, cheers.
    I’ve also taken all the accupel types with me today to have a test with and see if they are as good being the same pellet manufacturer
