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.

  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.

    After being away from the shooting scene for a while and selling my rifles (for one reason or another) I am now back. I have purchased a XS19 from a friend - this will be for my nephew mostly so won't be doing much other than a WW trigger and maybe a tune and clean up.

    I also purhcased a Hatsan Mod 60S for myself. Brand new. Did a bit of research and for the price looked a good deal. Shoots ok, trigger is good. My question is has anyone had any experience with these? Any mods done? Any mods I should look at doing first?

    Thanks

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe a gas ram is also available for these?

    When you say 'deburr' what does this mean? My intention is to buy a cheap air rifle to strip down and re-build as a learning tool. Maybe a SMK B2 (£34 from local dealer).

    Ask MattyTS he has done a complete tune up on his 55 (same gun smaller calibre). These are better guns than you think.

    Basically it is a Webley Stingray mark 2!

    Basically strip and clean the gun, re-finish any rushed manufacturing and assembly work, end of the springs, look for any rough swarf on the cocking linkage and slot.

    Smooth it all out, polish the piston and add a good quality lubricant.

    The trigger will be spattered in a really heavy dirt, metal particle attracting red grease, give it a good clean and re-lube, maybe add a piston sleeve to reduce twang.

    I can tell you that the standard spring, guide and top hat are horrible, I would recommend fitting a Welsh Willy kit.

    I have a 55s - as has been said it's the same gun but .177 cal. TBH it's a great wee gun. I recently hauled mine apart and gave it a quick tickle and surprisingly mine was pretty well put together at the factory (definitely a Wednesday gun, the guy that did the assembly must have been in full swing :D). I still gave it a buff here & there, a new lube and I cleaned the trigger workings out and applied a smear of lube to the parts.

    A good gun just got better but, as Steve says, the top-hat and spring look a wee bit on the cheap side so I'll probably replace them some time, most likely with one of Tinbum's kits.
