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.

    Does anybody know exactly what the hard translucent substance is that FX use to set the Crown regulator to 11.4 fpe to on 25/30 Cal setting?

    I doubt it, but probably just a generic clear resin. Though I imagine it would be pretty hard to remove and replace and not have FX notice the difference should it have to go in for work under warranty.

    Not sure what you mean there? the 25/30 is the transfer port size, it has nothing (directly) to do with the regulator pressure setting as such if that makes sense.

    Perhaps post a pic of where you mean and I will look at mine?

    Hi mate - it's a .177, on that setting (.177/.22) on the calibre/reg adjuster it's 9.91fpe, on the 25/30 it's only 11.3fpe - I can understand why ASI have done this , bit for 60yds it'll need to be more like 11.8-9fpe.

    Are you sure that it is transfer port size and not hammer spring tension?

    Yes, the hammer spring tension is marked 1-5 max and is the rear wheel.

    Yes as does mine produce maximum energy at the largest transfer port setting for 25/30 even though it's a .22. about 11.3 FT/ILBS.

    The .25.30 settings of the reg will manifest to higher power later down the shot count tbh u need a strong return spring which will take affect over air pressure but why should you need such a gun a .25 I sort of understand at close range 30 yards but .30 u might aswell throw a brick

    Can you re-write the above please Dave, it makes no sense to me at all and I own a Crown!
    The OP owns a .177 calibre Crown, I own a .22, the transfer port wheel on the gun IMO should have been marked up as high/med/low or such in order to prevent this confusion.
    The gun has been set up very wisely by the manufacturer to have maximum power with all the settings on maximum regardless.

    Out of the box settings of transfer port size 25/30 and power wheel at Max gives 11.76 ft lbs on my .177 Crown using JSB Heavies 10.34 grain.

    Can you take a pic of what you mean? I'm stumped!
    The regulator can be user adjusted, are you saying it can't?

    Yes it's sealed as I the original post, but I wonder with what, it's a hard see through resin of sorts, but my Crown is too light at 11.4 fpe

    Meaning that if for some reason, the police were to take your gun, and put say a bisley magnum, or jsb heavy through it, it would be found to be running over 12ftlb and illegal.

    To adjust the regulator pressure you use the socket screw on the underside of the gun, you know this I presume? are you saying this has some kind of sealing material on it?

    If it's like the impact (and many other products) it !at have so!e resin in the screw stopping you from inserting an Allen key and adjusting it. Basically a very basic form of AT (which I imagine will result in a void warranty if messed with).

    First you've stated light pellets, now you're starting heavy pellets. What have you used to read 11.4ftlb? It could be that you're close to 12 as it is using heavies.

    Well for heavies it would be as stated, but I'll run 8.4's, Chrony'd in this weather it'll be okay.Either way, I'll chuck it on my section 1 - I'm not bothered much. My original question is still does anybody know what gloop FX use to seal the regulator, so far everybody's off topic, running around talking about grain weights and other stuff.....I guess nobody knows?
