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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Picked this up a few years ago for nothing, a sight I had 3$in, but it doesn't work. I took the grips off and put some Liquid Wrench in were I could put it. I have a small gun shop and have repaired firearms for a living for over 40 years. Went to a school in Colorado for gunsmithing, before a class in design and function I saw written on the blackboard "Air Guns" in big letters. The instructor was an old fella that had worked on guns for 50+years and taught at CST for 25. He looked at the class said,"You all see that?". Then he took an eraser and threw it at the board. NEVER work on air guns. I'm sure his reason was your never going to make it pay for most of the guns people would bring in. He pretty much said that if your any good you'll be to busy working on firearms, was sure right there. In the early 70's I don't think there was as many great guns out there. I've shorted a few stocks but it costs as much to put a pad on an air gun as on a Parker double. After doing 2000+ pad jobs there are no real shortcuts. I thought I might be able to repair this because its in real good shape, has all the blue on it with a little surface rust. Is there a good place in the states for repair. Any time someone brought a Webley or a higher grade airgun into the shop I would send them to Beeman, sending any of the other Daisy/Crossman types back to the factory. I'm sort of afraid of the cost sending it to Beeman. I guess part of what I'm asking is it worth repairing. It seems like it is very well made and pretty simple just not simple enough for me. Thanks for any help. p.s. It's a .22 cal so I'm sure it won't have much punch.

    Boy do I feel dumb. I got to looking at it and couldn't figure how it cocked I couldn't see how the barrel did it. I looked in front of the trig and hadn't really thought about the button, just thinking a safe. These things don't have safes, old ones at least. I see now dughh. It's kind of a pain to cock and I didn't have any .22 cal pellets but it shot a 20 cal pretty hard so I'm going to have to go to town and get some .22 cal pellets. I looked at the youtube AFTER I FIGURED IT OUT.

    Shooting undersized pellets will be the same effect as dry firing a spring gun,the piston slamming full speed since theres no seal there to provide some resistance,it will do damage to your gun after a while.

    Yes your right about that, I didn't have any .22 cal pellets and had to try it once. I took it down, spring and all out, and it doesn't have a piston like the new ones has a leather ring in there and I'm sure it's not good for it but I don't think it's as bad as with the new ones. I shot a group through the bottom of a cigar box at about 15 feet and as bad as the trigger was and my old eyes and the iron sights it seems to shoot pretty well, under a half inch. I'll see if I can put a pic up. Got some Napier Power Hunter pellets that have some kind of insert inside that needs more speed to do whatever it's suppose to do.
