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.

    sillygarry. Check this out. No drilling apparently. http://www.altaros.cz/regulators/

    I was going to put one in my Webley Raider but figured out that it would still be a Webley Raider afterwords ;)

    basic really you need to setup the springs etc hammer spring etc and check valve port outlet etc to make sure your not wasting air don't get me wrong you can just plug and play.but you can do fine tuning to get a bit more out of them and smoothen it all up

    Agree with Terry.. fitting is usually straightforward assuming you have some basic tools and are reasonably mechanically savvy. Conversely setting one up properly is often a long, tedious and repetitive process that will require a chrono, lots of pellets, air and time. You also need a decent understanding of how regs work and behave with regard to valve characteristics over changing cylinder pressure (the behaviour that would cause a velocity curve in an unregged gun).

    If you want to fit it to the Ultra in your sig it won't be as painful as other rifles (due to the limited ability to adjust striker spring preload and the gun's relatively small air capacity) however ideally you want to short-stroke the striker (not a DIY job) rather than reduce the spring preload as this will have implications for lock time.

    I'd suggest you either do a lot of reading on the above and have a crack yourself, or get someone who has a rep for knowing that they're doing to carry out the work for you. IMO it's not something to be undertaken lightly ;)

    £200 on a reg is as much as the gun is worth and might add maybe £75 to its value, so you might want to bear that in mind. Why do you specifically want a reg - increased shot count?
