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.

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.

    I've worked out how it goes together, I'm missing the complete fill valve assembly from the front of the cylinder @Dormy I don't suppose you have a picture of it in pieces do you?

    Cool, thanks Mick, I have worked out how it comes apart/goes together I'll need some duplicated parts I think!

    No sorry, I only took the overall picture already posted. Gun is currently charged so best I can do is edit the original pic: -

    Fill Valve.jpg

    There isn't much to the valve (not surprisingly). There is a rotating collar around the hole where the fill probe fits. Inside is the valve & stem pushed closed by a small coil spring. These are both held in place by a collar and internal circlip.

    @Mark Palmer I have stripped my Elite again to take some measurements and make some adjustments. Below is a photo of the fill valve and its parts. Probably too late now as you seem to be getting on with yours, but I hope it helps. I have also taken a few extra photos and will post up a basic strip-down guide ASAP (probably still to late for you).

    That's great, thanks, I've sourced a similar end plug and have ordered up a suitable fill valve for it, so I've not got to assembly yet!

    I've decided against fitting the reg for now, I want to keep it as simple to twiddle with as possible as it's the first PCP I've tinkered with, the stock has come up a treat now 20210914_103936.jpg 20210914_103944.jpg 20210914_104017.jpg

    If it has been set up for using a regulator a few things might have been changed e.g. increased TP dia, changed hammer and firing valve springs. You might need to research what the standard parts would be and compare to what you have.

    Obviously, having a gun already on a regulator - I can't help.

    I'll have a look at it and do some measuring Friday and post up the results, factory size was 2.3mm , has yours had the cylinder drilled above the regulator ?

    It's not necessary to drill the cylinder in the Elite for a Lane regulator. You will already know from your new rifle that the reg. butts up against the firing valve body and has a seal there rather than a second O-ring on the outside. The O-ring on the body of the firing valve is also removed so the vent in the reg. can then breath to atmosphere through the unsealed gap.

    Valve.jpg

    The advantage is if you do want to fit the reg. you won't have to drill the new tube you have bought. You can also swap back again to non-reg. at a later date (if you should want to ?) and not have a hole in the tube to cause problems.

    P.S. Can you also measure the size of the (removable) plenum chamber part of the Lane reg. for me. This is the open end which butts against the firing valve body. I forgot to measure mine when I had the gun apart and it is relevant to how much volume is taken up by the reg. within the air cylinder.

    Your end cap looks more like my fill valve, though exactly the same -

    View attachment 556625

    The end cap on mine is secured by a bolt up through the trigger block and down from the breech, not the three short bolts set around the outside.

    The fill Valve body I've acquired is from a Logun mk2 , it's held in place in the same way as the Elite and has the dust cover for the filler probe hole but a different valve arrangement,
    With regards to the plenum, I'll.put up some pics later with some dimensions
