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.

    Ok I still have to much time on my hands so its silly question time again. The last time I was in Quickfit for a tire they were offering to fill the tires with Nitrojen. It would seem to be better over diferant tempratures and less likely to leak over time like Air Now do any of you know has Nitrojen ever bean used in gas ram guns and if not do you think it would work being a more stable and dencer gas over to you.

    It is used in most if not all gas rams. Different gasses make no difference to leakage.. if ther is a crack or a hole it will leak out especially under pressure untill the the pressure equilises the main reason for its use is that its less reactive so will not react with the steel and it can esily be pressuised to several hundred psi. If you are thinking of filling a gas ram with nitrogen it probably has it already nd there is no fill valve on them mot to mention you may make it FAC if over pressurised.
    If I am wrong someone corret me, and hope this help.

    Theoben used to use nitrogen in their rifles then stopped as there was no real benefit. They could be filled with it if you wanted and had the means.

    The current crop of gas ram guns probably just use nitrogen so they can put "NITRO!" In big impressive letters on the box and try and detract you from their cheap, Chinese nastiness. As mentioned above, these rifles aren't serviceable and you just throw them away if they leak.

    Ain't the new breed of gas ram rifles just fitted with sealed gas struts ? if they fail, fit a spring and guides.

    Nitrogen is used simply because it is one of the cheaper 'inert' gases. Inert meaning that it is tottaly non-reactive or oxydising therefore no rust on the surfaces it contacts or flammable (ignitable)explosive risks. The only thing that has certainly changed are the materials that the seals are manufactured from. GasRams themselves have been around for ages and as said initially used by Theoben in air rifles. Better than a springer cos? youi will never break a spring, they do not lose their power with age, you can leave them permanently cocked, fractionally faster firing/lock cycle, different recoil action and thats about it.
    I have fired both types regularly and must say that out of the gasram or springer I do prefer the tuned springer!
    Each to his own choice though.
