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.

    hi my name is rick i am a new member and i am looking for help with a webley tracker i have just got my hands on all help would be great thanks .

    Right to start with the gun would not fire in a good grouping so as i have had this problem before i picked on the t/sight first and swaped it for a sight i new to be good noticed a bit of improvement but not much at all stil got a grouping of 15cm 6inch at 20 yards so reading some info decided to strip it to see what i could find out . on striping the spring out of if noticed the drift had signs of damage on it where some one had striped it before ? and then to my surprise found a gas ram inside and no spring ? can some one advise me on if it would of had a spring in it from the factory and this is an add on if i wanted to put a spring in where i would be able to get a good one from and i would all so need a pistion if i was to change the spring right? and would the rachet part still work if i put a spring in ??

    Do you think this could be the problem with the grouping or am i barking up the wrong tree so to speak i all so noticed some times after taking a shot with it when i turned the loading spindle to insert a new pellet i would hear a gas noise as if there was some compresed air traped in the system and only now finding a way out

    it is a 22 do not know age of gun

    All help much appreciated thank you rick

    I would not have thought a gasram would make the gun inaccurate as it just replaces the spring.
    Make sure the stock screws are tight, try different pellets, clean the barrel.

    Hi , have a gas ram in my BSA Lightning XL , the ram should be a snug fit inside the action so it sounds like they have fitted the wrong one :eek:, you can still buy the Tracker ram conversion from www.theoben.com but they are about £60 iirc , you could always just replace it with a spring as all you have to do is take out the ram and slot the spring back in. If you can find out what number ox spring fits the Tracker you can get them off Ebay quite cheaply :D. One issue with gas rams is that they can make the rifle very 'hold sensitive' , if you grip my XL like a standard springer you produce groups of about 4 inches at 25 yards :( , but if you hold it lightly in your hands and shoulder you can produce 1 hole groups out to about 30/35 yards:up:. The hissing noise you mention could be air trapped behind the tape when the rifle has been fired.
    hope that may of shed a little light on your problems
