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.

    Well Gentlemen.. I am using my FIRST PCP (SMK PR900W in .177 flava) as my night sight ratting rifle.

    Not that many rats on the farm as yet.. and only had a couple of night time visits.. but as an "apprentice ratter" I hope to learn quick..

    Only this afternoon before my evening session, I checked everything and found that she had blown the breech seal out... BEGGER....
    No probs, a quick re-crown, barrel bore clean, barrel seals, breech seal, TP seals, ream the TP to 1.5mm and a smear of Moly grease over everything moving ... and she is running at an average of 11.2ft/lb with the JSB Exacts.... and grouping at 25 yards within 19mm diameter... I am happy enough with that..

    Just bring on MORE rats I say....

    What in Darwin's name were you doing to them? Let me guess, pulling the trigger with the barrel open? Only goes to confirm my suspicions that Daystate use makes you simple minded... :D

    That'll just smash your fingers between barrel and lever. I suppose you're the reason why the nomark springer makers put anti-beartrap devices in their breakers... :facepalm:

    I really hated putting my fingers in the breech of my TX200HC

    i Had a side lever springer with a sliding breech in the late 80’s...

    no idea what make... it was damned accurate though and very good quality

    Hi Hal,

    I’m pleased that you have got the pr900 up and running again, I know how keen you now are to do some serious ratting. Hopefully, everything will be spot once again.

    Im looking forward to speaking to you soon.
    Regards.
    Les.
