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.

    Finally arrived from Stuart at SMW Engineering my custom made Barrel brace / Bipod mount. Superb quality, perfect fit ( just needed a whiff of sanding to get it to slide on smoothly) So my bipod now sits well forward and is also a better position for the same device in its pistol grip role.

    I think this is how FX should be delivering guns to customers who hunt rather than just punch paper, My barrel now has the protection it needs. 3.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg 7 - Copy.jpg

    Isn't there a reason why FX barrels are free floating and won't that cause the barrel to be lifted up slightly when the bipod is placed on the ground thus changing the POI? I've never been one to have anything fixed to barrels having previously removed barrel bands off HW100's, Daystate's and worse of all sling points on Rapid barrels.

    Not as far as I am aware because the air tube is quite rigid and does not flexy noticably, when the band is on both barrel and air tube are held very firmly. I would not fit a bipod or pistol grip directly to a barrel.

    Technically the barrel is free floating inside the shroud and the rigid air cylinder is quite rigid as is so unlikely to transfer the load from the bipod to the shroud - BUT!

    Probably nothing to worry about, but what I have seen with the barrel clamping arrangement which because of the location of the 'O' rings and clamp screws that can and does cause the barrel to be forced to point in a slight downwards direction, I would be inclined to keep the clamp as close to the tapered end of the shroud as possible to prevent putting any strain on the shroud itself when tightening down the barrel clamp screws.
    In effect, the barrel clamp screws are forcing the barrel down and the support is forcing it back up again.
    Without actually seeing how this all fits together and measuring tolerances, I may be completely wrong and the clamp has been made to allow for this slight drooping when tightening it.

    And fortunately if the Bipod / pistol grip did cause deflection that is noticable I can always shift it back to the other P rail on the bottom of the Breach block.

    Yeah I had noticed that thanks, but I'm in two minds wether to go for the thinner barrel as the weight saving is likely to be only marginal.

    I think the fat shroud barrel will be lighter the than the thin one anyway, the fat one has the supper light system and the thin one is the steel tube
    type, not 100% on that but think that's how they are
