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.

GT85 as a pellet lube

    Does anyone use this as a pellet lube?
    I sprayed some on a few FAPs to see what happened and the pellets gave an average of 10fps more with no decrease in accuracy. I'd be interested to hear of any experience, good or bad.
    Thanks.

    Missed this one, apologies.

    GT 85, a similar product to WD 40 but in my opinion much better,penetrates, lubricates, dries but leaves a sheen on surfaces that does not attract grime. I would have thought a very good alternative to the usual pellet lubes.

    What do others use?

    Would have thought so as it's not in the actual compression chamber and besides you would be using pellets dripping in the stuff.I assume anyone would spray some on the pellets and let the carrier evaporate leaving just a very light coating of PTFE on them.

    I can't say anything about using it as a (pellet) lube,
    But I use GT85 to clean my shotgun barrels, and also as a general wipe over for it, works very well and has a nice smell to it too :D :up:
    (Usually get it really cheap in Aldi)

    I like GT85 especially the old Teflon version, now has ptfe .. Good lasting lubricity qualities ( is that a word ) . I may try it .. obviously allow the pellets to dry.. I'm using Jojoba oil at the mo..

    Pledge brings my dome up lovely ;) Still yet to be convinced about the benefits of lubing pellets ... give them a rinse yes if mucky, but using a lubricant has never seemed to make any appreciable difference when I tested.

    i give my pellets a quick squirt of the napier spray then let them dry.. i think it does make a difference, even if its just a confidence boost for me as i do get marginally smaller groups

    Just wondering if anyone has used this as a trigger assembly cleaner/lubricant? I would have thought the ptfe deposited would help give a smooth action.

    not that ive noticed, theres so little oil as it dries on the pellets and you only need a quick squirt into the tin, probably a quarter of the amount you would spray on a cleaning patch
