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 all,
    I have an S200 and have never filled it with air before. I have no instruction but saw a video on youtube a while ago saying all you do is put the fill end over the t bar turn and then fill. My brother has an air bottle and we put my end on it and tightened it as much as we dare but air is escaping out the back of the whip. we tightened a number of times until we dare not do it any more or would have stripped the threads (brass fitting) he put his H100 bottle on and it charges no problem. I though all whips where the same ? or is there a special once for the S200 ? If no can anyone advise what the problem might be ? by the way its mark1 S200

    Thanks Alan

    I'm not certain I'm understanding your problem....
    Am I right in thinking that the air is escaping from the rear of the brass 'T' piece adaptor where it screws into the fitment at the end of air-line? If so it may need a rubber centred washer (a dowty seal) between these two pieces.

    hello, max fill to 190 bar and dont go below 20 or so, i did mine to 180 and a drop to 25 before refill, 75/80 shots, is it leaking on the thread or ? a bit of PTFE tape might help if a thread. there not expensive if it is leaking from the hose end to buy new.

    It's called a DOWTY seal, a steel washer with a rubber inner piece.

    Thanks All,
    I will give the seals ago as nothing was leaking through the threads it was coming out the back of the whip hose connector. Just ordered 2 off ebay.

    You made the right decision, problem solved.
    When you fit it don't go and force it too tight - finger tight, then half a turn should be enough.

    Not sure I have not made a mistake ! I have looked at the gun end and that has a double seal on (2 O rings on the rifle end its the mark 1) I don't see where the seal I have just bought can go ? or doe these fit in the adapter cap some how ? if anyone has a picture of the placement that would be great ! Are these to go on the threaded end of the adapter to the whip ?

    Thanks Alan

    Pop it over the thread on the brass piece then screw the brass adaptor to the microbore hose.

    which way round does this go seal go on ? or does it not matter ? one end looks flat and the other side has a little recess. I am guessing the recess is for the whip seal to fit in to ? will give it a try tomorrow

    Thanks Alan
