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.

    Hi I have a Hatsan Herculean pop do you have any advice on how to strip it down so I can sort out all the loss fitting part on it. It's a good Rifle but like most hatsan pop air rifles needs a good ones over. Can strip it down because of all the Anti tamper devices on them. Any help or advice you can give i will be grateful for. Thank you very much for your time.

    Just had to strip a Webley Stingray II to add a preload washer and lube which is the same mechanism/ gun as the hatty.
    Followed this excellent how to guide from Meteor62 and at section / picture 5 in original post to stop the main sear from pinging away on its spring and having to jiggle it about on rebuild I pushed the pin out (it is a loose fit) and followed it through with a roll up cigarette filter which is the correct diameter and has enough rigidity to hold the sear in place whilst the trgger is put to one side
    It is then easily pushed out by the pin come rebuild time without the need for a third hand or eight fingers.
    They were the Swan brand, non menthol:D

    Hi lone wolf, I just got a 55 s today with a view to modifying it with delrin inserts, PTFE piston washer and possibly PTFE spring sleeve. Also considering shortening the barrel by a few inches and fitting a moderator.

    Any tips or advise you can pass on please?

    Thanks in advance

    for a drop in kit you have a few options available, the most readily available being TBT & WW kits but do not discount the lads on here who can also make the, like our shauny and frog who are both very good at what they do.

    Diy barrel cut and re-crowns have been cover many times in here so theres a few good threads on them mate, if you search my threads you may see on.

    most of all have fun doing it, nothing beats improving your own rifle with your own efforts

    Hi Lonewolf,

    As suggested by yourself, I have been reading the posts on barrel length, cutting and crowning here on the forum. Also had some massively good advise from Frog with regards to altering the transfer port diameter to reduce twang on firing.

    Once I am fully operational (currently post op) and my lathe is made I will make all the necessary parts for the internals.

    For the 2 off Stoegers X20's I have, I indeed fitted TbT delrin inserts so I am quite happy about that. However, I am going to replace the standard spring on the .177 with a No. 5 Titan which has slightly different diameters to the stock spring, so am hoping to make a new thicker liner and top hat inserts.

    Apart from new delrin inserts, ptfe piston washer, ptfe liner and polishing the internal parts, can you think of any other improvements I can make to the 55s. Oh I have also made a cracking moderator for the 16mm diameter barrel too).

    But as mentioned am seriously considering drilling the TP out to 5mm dia and tapping it M6 x 1mm and making a brass tapped reducing bush to Loctite onto the body.

    If anyone has any comments on my intended plans, please don't hesitate to inform us.
