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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    I had a lightning years ago, bud.

    I feel your pain, but sometimes it's best to learn from your mistakes. At least you'll be somewhat of an expert on 'em soon enough... :D

    Beat the *******. now cocks and fires . hope none of the pilots that trust my ability to rebuild flying controls ever get to hear of my week long struggle with 5 pins 2 springs and a trigger. made the classic mistake of trying to put it together as it came apart instead of how it should have been. Just goes to show taking time out to vent your spleen helps clear your mind . Thanks for listening guys it really did help on this occasion. Top tip if you think your stock screws look short on rebuild its because they are sheared off in the main body . ho hum this f****r is really fighting me.:(

    I don't know what you people are on about, my .22 BSA Meteor makes a tight 5.6mm one shot group on whatever it hits when I aim at a target. :D

    Keep going, you'll get it working eventually.
    It will still be useless and horrible but it will work. You could have got a boxful of B2s instead, much better value for money!

    ok. I think I know the answer but before I shell out I`ll ask anyway. just put it through my combro running @ 11.9 rws superdomes and 12.4 with some old spitfires (not good) quickly removed the piston spacer still running hot. think last cowboy fitted a .177 ram instead of .22. is there any way of calming down a gas ram or is it as i fear returning it to stock with a spring etc. this is not a new gas ram it is an old franken gun ! :mad:

    If it's a Theoben ram, it should have a schrader valve for adjusting power. Either a special pump or some funky fittings and a PCP/shock pump are required to alter it though.

    I do believe that a lot of the after-market rams are sealed units, with no way to footer with the power. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's the case anyhows. :(

    You could always use the ram as a door closer, or a drawer opener. Gas ram operated cutlery drawer might not be the best idea though... ;)
