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.

    Is it pointless in adding a 'moderator' to an 'FSB' rifle ?. I only noticed from seeing a 'video' the other day of a strip down of an 'Air Ranger', that inside the barrel is a baffle. I really cant notice that much difference between running my one with or without. But if that is indeed the case, then why would the makers 'screw cut'. KB1:confused:

    Standerd shrouds are more cosmetic or to get rpund american silencer laws matey the call em a ldc they can add a silencer to the end of it strange i nobut true standerd shrouds will never match a silencer on sound qualityso adding asilencer is a big improvment sound wise unless you get a custom shroud made ieout of carbon and the likes but will only be effective on guns which allow enough volue sofor instance a daystate would be out tne window but lime of s10 r10 rappids and such work a treat so in short on a standerd shroud adding a slincer is going to be a mass improvment in sou d quality hth dave g

    Edit are you comparing the daystate brands of shrouds and silencers as the daystate silencers are complete pants aparts from looking well add a twink or hw orhogun to it andu will see the diffrence again hth daveg

    Should see a difference with a twink, hogun, hw, as Dave says,

    Shrouds are only effective if the volume around the barrel is being used to expelled some of the blast before it hits the muzzle!

    Made one, works a treat:)

    I get what your both saying, indeed. And I have had many 'mods' from D/S to Sak, to A-tek, but it was just seeing that baffle in the strip down, that made me think, hang on, whats the 'FSB' thing all about then, in the first place. Why bother with a mod. But I take your points. Cheers.

    Yes it has. The FSB as said before is to get around the american gun laws regarding silencers, its just fortuitous that the shroud length on the FSB carbine enables a full length cylinder to fit the gun. the dedicated HW silencer for the FSb makes a huge diffeence to the sound levels. :cool:
