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.

    '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.'

  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.

    To replenish the air in the Phox you need to remove the cap covering the air probe port, now you need to place the cap in a safe place otherwise it can be lost or end up with dirt inside it..
    To store the cap, an ideal place (on the Phox with a removable sound suppressor) is over the end of the suppressor..
    WARNING - after replenishing the air remember to replace the cap on the probe port !

    Make sure you take the moderator off and grease the muzzle thread well, sooner rather than later.
    Sometimes the moderator can come apart, leaving the tread from the moderator on the muzzle!

    Hiya guys, my name is Adam. Long time co2 pistol enthusiast, I have wanted a rifle for as long as I can remember. I finally was able to purchase a Gamo Phox yesterday. Opened the box and the suppressor fell apart Is anyone able to give me the order of the internal pieces so I can reassemble it please?

    If I remember @Ajbart81 it is tube/washer/tube/washer/tube. Oring goes at the muzzle end.

    I have just chopped the last tube in half and put another washer in, just to see if it quietens the sound. I think it has, but there is more ping/noise from the internals than the muzzle anyway!

    Thanks @Guy P, mine has three washers and tubes plus a spring. So would it go spring/washer/tube/washer/tube/washer/tube?

    Hi Adam,

    depends which end you are working from. Mine doesn't have a spring, just an O-ring to hold the tubes/washers in place and prevent them from rattling.
    This is at the muzzle end on mine, I would assume this is where you would fit the spring, to do the same thing.

    I did the bottle brush de-pinger fix and it's great! Cost about £2 for the brush (quality, see) and 20 minutes work and all good. Sadly, even with the moderator and de-pinger, these are still just a noisy rifle but for the money.....:nana:

    I haven't used the bottle brush, but did cover the bottom half of the cylinder and action with some left over silicone lined handlebar tape from my road bike, that worked a treat keeping the noise down.

    Does anyone on here know what size the probe O Rings are? They seem to die on me almost every other pump and I have no idea why.
