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.

    I've heard gas rams can take the power all over the place, I think they're effected by temperature :confused: but definitely worth it in a Mercury if they're available :up:

    Theoben have stopped making them ........
    you can now get them from AWT at

    http://www.awt-silencers.co.uk/

    but unfortunately they dont do them for your model
    if fitted correctly the gas ram can be a great upgrade
    i had one fitted to a lightning about 4 years ago and it made a hell of a diffrence

    ive sold gun on but recently just bought a lightning xl with a gas ram

    ive had gas rams fitted in a good few guns,the only time you have any bother with them is if you put them away for very long periods then you have bother,if you use the gun a lot you will have no bother trust me ,i bought a theoben sirrocco that was 23 years old off a colector it had never been shot ,it cost me £300 to have a new gas ram and all new internals made for it,as the gun was that old the new gas rams and internals didnt fit ,so they all had to be made again,very expensive.

    james the trouble i had with gas rams was the power was affected badly due to temperature change effecting p.o.i had them running just under 12 fpe in summer come winter down to 7 fpe you can test your own gun if you have a crhonny check it indoors then wait for a cold night put it out in the cold for a hour then check again i have had over half a dozen gas rams every one had the same prob

    I have had three gasrams, still got 2 and have never had any of the problems everyone talks about.
    I just shot my SLR the other night, first time in over six months and it is still running at the same power as it did when new.
    The temperature does not seem to affect mine neither, well not to the point that i would notice, maybe only a few fps but nothing like Topcats dropping to 7ft/lbs. :confused:

    overall gas rams are good guns, fantastic build quality
    and quick firing cycle plus very low recoil compared to a spring gun,
    i have noticed slight power drop due to cold weather but not as low as 7ftlbs.
