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
    my sons TX200 hc failed yesterday , I've taken it apart today and found what seems to be the main spring guide has broken. It is swagged on to a large washer which is very week at this point and this is where it's broken. Such a nice gun let down by a cheap piece of crap!
    So here is the question .....is there a good upgrade to this and whilst in bits want to do a service.
    Who is the man in the know for spares ,upgrades and alike for this gun.

    Cant believe Air Arms let them selves down with such a crap part!

    I know one of you will know the answer.
    Thanks
    Andy

    Julian Bond is great for Air Arms spares....

    not sure whether you need to be a member to see the page but worth joining as an Air Arms owner anyway. I believe they also have strip down guides and servicing guides on the forum.

    Can't it be welded back onto the guide?

    If you can't source a better quality replacement I would risk welding it back on using a low power setting!

    To be fair it's only a spring guide and the TX is the easiest gun in the world to strip. Obviously it would be better had it not happened, but it's not the end of the world.

    I'd have a reasonable amount of faith that a standard AA replacement could be trusted, alternatively it's an ideal opportunity to upgrade to a better-fitting synthetic option :)

    The older guns used a 2-piece guide with a larger shoulder that fit in the recess of the trigger block. These have never given me any problem. My 2000 model TX had the swaged 1-piece guide and it worked for a very long time until I had the gun tuned. There were reports back in the day of the washer coming off just like the picture, but I have seen newer guns with the old 2-piece guide. What do AA put in the newest guns? Hopefully the old style 2-piece.

    Thanks all you very helpful people out there, yes I know it's only a spring guide but for such a nice gun and well made
    only to be let down by what looks to a cheap design! For very little money for AA it could've been made so much better...

    matw975 I've sent you a pm about making one.
    thanks mate
