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.

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.

    Ive just taken delivery of a gas ram for my bsa lightning and I cant seem to get it to fit. Ive replaced mainsprings many times without issue and I just cannot get my head round it.
    I was sure Ive ordered the correct item. BSA lightning .177 from airgunspares.com, however Ive just looked on their website again at the .177 supersport gas ram as I believe they used the same action and its a different part number. Waiting for a call back from Airgunspares, but I thought I'd ask here first.

    The piston may have a plastic liner which needs fishing out, it's polyproylene or polythene type plastic & a tight fit, but I managed to get to mine with needle nose pliers.

    Right, there was a plastic liner. Ive removed this but only the main body of the ram fits inside the piston, so I'm assuming thats the way it goes!!

    Yep that's correct buddy the body of the ram goes inside the piston, also matey I personally would fit an o-ring in that groove in the ram and then insert it in the piston to stop any resonation between piston and ram but only if it'll fit without any agro if the ram won't go in or the o-ring appears in the slot in the piston then I'd remove it again !...

    Your choice though, just a thought I had !...:up:

    But also shim ram so its a nice tight fit but I would replace old piston seal with new version or custom fit one before using it, due to the nature of rams combined with new seal it would only take 50 pellets to bed in nicely

    all in and done! Quick test fire using H&N hunter extremes and rabbit magnums and I'm impressed!
    Think I'll zero in with the hunter extremes and organise my next lamping session.
