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:


    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.

    Well first of all I use a nice duster and give it a couple of sprays of napier gun oil.. then wipe over the whole gun. I do this after every time I use it. Also I occasionally put a small amount of napier airgun grease on some of the (exterior) moving parts.

    Now, the qb78 is Co2 if i'm not mistaken... It probably is not a good idea to leave non empty cartridges in the gun when it's not in use, as the seals will wear.

    Other than that, take care of your gun and it'll take care of you...

    Not to argue for the sake of it, but it's a good idea to leave some pressure in the rifle as this helps the seals keep their form / shape.:up:

    quote:crappy springers but im taking it a step further?and getting a qb78 PMSL.
    1: serious oiling as smk rifles have serious bad blacking.i use that 3in 1 cheap stuff and does the job fine.
    2:use pre lubed co2 bulbs and cheap bulbs.after every 10 cheap use 1 lubed.
    3:leave ur cartridge in and work out how many shots u get from each.say u get 50 and ur on a co2 bulb and only used 20 and u av to put it away.come getting out the next time u will know if it ok or not.not if there is no shots and good if the other 30 shots are there.that is a thing i did wiv my pistols and be sure to use 1 quality co2 lubed bulb for every 10 cheap ones u use as cheap ones aint lubed and wear the seals down.
    4:you shouldnt of bought a qb78 co2 and u should of stuck with the crappy old springer as u call it.crappy old springer will out perform the qb78 all day.
    5:check out network 54 as they have dedicated forums for ur rifle.
