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.

    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.'

  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.

    Yes, extracting those two blocks can be a struggle.
    What you need is a piece of stiff wire (piano wire) with an "L" shaped bend on the end. . The "L" part should be about 3 or 4mm . . I used 16g piano wire on mine. Bend the other end into a loop so you can get a good grip on it. . This wire is available in any model shop.
    First block: The wire can be hooked into the hole where the gauge used to be and then pulled out.
    Second block: hook the wire into the transfer port . . and pull out the block.
    Both blocks can be stubborn but once they have started to move, it gets easier.

    It is worth the struggle. . Fitting a Lane regulator to my PR900W transformed it. The shot-to-shot consistency is brilliant, and the rifle is far more accurate. :up:

    Sorry if I seem thick but there is no room between the blocks and cylinder wall to get wire into the holes to pull them.
    I have tried knocking them out from hammer side of cylinder with a piece of ally round bar but they wont budge.

    There is a hole in the centre of the blocks. Run the wire down these holes and then hook the "L" shaped part into the other recesses so the blocks can be pulled out.

    They can be stubborn, but they move eventually. Good luck.

    Yes, you have to remove both. Spacers have to be fitted to the other block and to the exhaust valve spring.

    Think I was over thinking/worrying this, followed Peds advice n knocked em out with dowel n a big rubber mallet,
    Got all refitted without much hassle,even managed to fill it with my pump from empty!!!.
    The difference is astounding,,,Hardest part was bringing it back under the magic 12,
    after a lot of spring adjustment n snipping got it to 11.4 FPE steady.
    Dont know yet what shot count is like cos missus doesn't like it if I go at it for ages in the back garden.
    And using an old handle off a file even made a tidy plug for the gauge hole in the stock which is pretty tidy.

    Did a full tank string at the club with this last nightover the chrono,
    It has gone up over the last week since I used it last monday.
    got a total of 85 usable shots it started at 185m/s went up to 189m/s over the 1st 30 shots,then crept up to 196m/s over next 15 shots and then jumped up to 199 to 204 m/s from shots 50 to 80 and dropped back to 186 for last 5 usable shots.
    Did get another 10 shots from it after that but it dropped 6 to 10 m/s with every shot as the power died.
    The reg was factory set at 85 bar so went back in there today and did a 180 degree clock wise turn on it which according to website should have it set at aprox 70 to 75 bar now, I dont know for sure cos I did not remove the reg from tube to check markings.
    Put it back together pumped it up{KERnackred}LOL!! then did 3 10 shot strings which gave me readings of 183 to 186 over 30 shots that is giving me 11.4fpe to 11.7 fpe so if it stays stable am happy with that
