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.

  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.

    After reading many threads and seeing a lot of people stripping down there guns due to excess grease I have decided to do mine this weekend but before I do, what grease or oil do I replace it with and is there any guides about to help.

    Cheers :up:

    I used Abbey gun oil and a a sparing amount of moly grease which I've had for years. EGP i think it is. easy gun to strip the thing to watch is tapping the cocking lever pin out tap a little then grab from the top and pull. you can drive a drift straight through the back of the handle as its angled.

    I left my air side alone for now but the cocking firing mech is a dream to work on with patience and makes a huge difference on some guns.

    Will any silicone grease do or do I need molykote? it seems a bit steep for the amount I'll use. Just thought I would do this while fitting the Anti Hammer Bounce/Ping Springs.

    Thanks for the tip on the cocking lever :)

    If you're talking about the grease on the O rings, just a little smear of Molykote grease on them, just a very thin coating.

    As for the hammer and shuttle assembly, just a thin coat of sewing machine oil, or hair clipper oil instead of the vast amount of grease that's there now.

    Silicone grease it has the potential to cause excessive premature wear of moving metal parts. ;)

    Thanks Steve that's exactly what I wanted. I partially stripped it yesterday to work on my stock and I noticed the cocking mechanism, trigger unit and the shuttle assembly are swimming in grease... I thought they had stopped doing this....

    My 22 was bad with old grease but my 177 was fairly dry both shoot superbly after a strip and proper lube. not that they didn't before but the cocking is a lot smoother.

    You're welcome mate, yes they are still putting way too much grease around the hammer/shuttle, as far as i know it's Hull Cartridge that apply the grease, not Weihrauch.

    The guns are very consistent once the grease is gone though, i did one a few years ago, stripped and cleaned everything and polished the shuttle, it's never missed a beat since. ;)
