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.

    Had a play around with my ultra other day, had it 2 years or so and its the first time i used it properly, had a lot of fun

    While its not been in use its picked up a little bit of surface rust, nothing to serious, but i was thinking of buying a shroud to cover it

    Are they as effective as a decent silencer? does anybody on here make them that i can pm to discuss buying one

    I make them. With an ultra a 350mm shroud will be as quiet as a standard mod but the 400mm mm ones are quieter than the HW mods according to several customers. It does depend on the type of wadding used and baffle spacing etc, but they are very effective. My prices are £29.99-49.99 depending on material/finish. Pm if you want more details or pics.

    The majority of factory shrouds do very little for noise suppression, unless they are much longer than the actual barrel and have numerous baffles fitted. They are more for aesthetics than function.

    My Daystate shrouds were p**s poor at noise suppression, even with a Daystate Reflex moderator, i now have shortened shrouds and Swift Stumpy moderators on them which is much more effective. ;)

    I have just fitted a Huub shroud to my .177 Ultra, it's longer than the barrel and comes with all the internal pieces of a silencer that fit into the end - very effective and a quality piece of kit.

    a tinbum shroud with an integral silencer or seperate silencer if a adapter can be made screw one on to would be a good option, oh and would be a good ideal to grease/gun oil barrel before fitting to stop anymore rust from getting hold,

    A good shroud on a BSA PCP is as or more silent than a HW silencer. Huub shrouds are good and 60mm shorter than HW silencers. I made a copy from 25mm pipe for my Scorpion SE and below 10 kHz it is a bit more quiet than my modified HW silencer. Shrouds are also more resistant when you knock the barrel in to something so there's one less thing to worry about. It is worth noting that most other brands do not have enough room in between the air tube and barrel to fit an effective shroud.

    Having removed my shroud from my hw100 and firing it I can say that the shroud is very good at suppressing the noise compared to a barrel without the shroud or mod, however the difference between a shroud compared to a moderator is huge in my opinion, I didn't have the need for suppression so I opted for the FSB, but if you want it quiet get a decent mod.
