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.

    I have one of these. :)

    Its mid rebuild at the moment but is a great bit of engineering. Ive took it apart and its very well made for a cheapish gun. Piston is a lovely turned piston instead of some cold rolled thing usually found in cheaper guns. Same with the cylinder.

    Rapidfire isnt realy the word because you do need to cock it each shot, but you can put 25 pellets in it, and cock it off the shoulder soooo.....

    I've cleaned, lubed, deburred, recrowned, delrin spring guide, New oversize spring(diameter), replaced the leather piston seal with a synthetic one, lapped the loading mechanism and new seals on mine and am hoping for 11+ ftlb out of it. :D Its really quite light and a nice shooting position. Feels smaller than it is i guess.

    Only problem is that stock is made of cheese...... And if you wanted a scope, you will need very high, or even custom made mounts as the magazine goes where the scope mounts.

    Its the same action as a Gamomatic, which is the sporter stocked version.

    I just need to finish the stock repairs and make some real wood stock panels to replace the plastic ones on mine. Great project. :D:D


    Cheers

    Did you make your own seal or just find something that was a close fit. I am wanting to replace the leather seal on my Anschutz 335.

    Hi Andy,

    The tube is just a fraction smaller than the newer meteors, the non o-ring ones, so I used one of them as I had it kicking about.

    I did have to make a retainer for it though, turned one out of delrin easy enough. Wonderful stuff that delrin. lol

    Cheers

    Old boy Jack had one on the allotments. It had a rail on top, spring loaded that you fed with pellets. Each time you cocked it it would/supposedly feed the next pellet. Jack told me it would only do that with straight skirt pellets and not the waisted. It was light, a lot of plastic. Good for seeing a pigeon off at 35yds. I doubt it was of any more use.
