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.

    'Behaviour

    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 this is my first post and I am New to air rifles and a bit p****d off already.
    I could do with some advice on charging my pcp. I saved up and got my self a secondhand aa 410 classic with an out of date dive bottle it came with the paper work to say that it has had new seals and a new style charging adapter fitted as it is a pre anti tamper model, the whip a brass charging adapter and around 150 bar of pressure. This is is not going to charge the rifle completely I no that much! So I have saved some more and now am the owner of a webly tri pump. I have left work early today to go home and finally after a month start enjoying my new toy but after reading the instructions and watching a YouTube clip on how to charge my rifle it seems to be leaking air from the o rings between the brass fitting and the new style quick fill thing. Looking at the o rings thay seem pritty New and so is the brass connecter I think? Any suggestion on were I might be going wrong or what New bits I might need now?

    Regards

    Subman

    Hi, what is the pressure in the gun at present? If it is very low or empty then have you tried cocking the gun before trying to fill it? 150 bar in the bottle should be enough to try this.

    I know it is frustrating when things don't go smoothly but bear with it as it will be worth it. Great choice of rifle by the way!

    The gauge on the rifle is reading around 140 but as I try and pump you can hear air escaping from around the charging adapter. Why might this be?

    Is the air coming from the gun or the connection on the probe or adapter which screws into your pump? It may just need nipping up just a touch, also if a probe are the o rings on it good?

    One full 410! Thanks guy's for the support needed that. Just needed to nip up the connections, bit excited I guess.
    Got the rifle and the pump from this forum and now I'm a fully fledged airgunner. Time to go plonking! ;-)
