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.

    Hello!

    Today i got my first hatsan rifle, Its a hatsan bt 65 177 cal with sidebolt.
    Im think its a great rifle but i have a few question.

    I mount a hatsan silencer, i should screew out the airtank and i forgot to screew out the silencer first so i screew the airtank into the silencer so the barrel been bent almost 0.4inch/1cm because the airtank was touched and lifted the barrel slightly as I turned out the airtank.

    Can this turn in to problems and how flexible is the barrel to the rifle?

    I also wonder how many bar it most be remaining in the tank after shooting? I try to shoot down to 80bar today.

    Thank you for answers :)

    I assume you mean that when you fill the rifle you remove the silencer so you can get at the port at the front?
    I had one of the early Falcon FN19s,the barrel was thin on those and could wobble if you pressed on it.
    Hopefully you haven't done any damage and it will spring back again as it unlikely you will have permanently bent it.

    DJhatsan,
    If you have bent the barrel then you MUST get it straightened by a competent person,otherwise all your shots will be way too high.

    Yes it have quickfill. I just remove the air sylinder to mount a new with full pressure.
    And i forgot to screew out the silencer before i start to unmount the airsylinder, and the airsylinder get into the silencer and lift the barrel up maby 0.3 inches.
    I also see that i can remove the barrel a littlebit side to side, is the barrel littlebit flexible or have this happend after the little bend the barrel have been trough?

    Well theres your problem then.
    The way the barrel is mounted and that it is quite thin it will wobble a bit but it only wobbles when you make it wobble!
    Its like people who buy a BBQ,they stand there shaking it saying it wobbles a bit but do they stand there shaking it whilst cooking,no they dont.

    I do not know what this guy is on, I think he has tried unscrewing the barrel not the air cylinder! The Hatsan barrels are not thin (speaking as one who has a Hatsan barrel attached to a Hatsan rifle in his gun cabinet)!

    Does a slightly bent barrel matter.:)

    We know that bent firearm barrels are not accurate; because as they heat from firing, they “walk” their shots. But airguns don’t heat up as they shoot. Several years, ago Feinwerkbau actually made a 10-meter target pistol with a barrel that wrapped around the CO2 cylinder as a sort of joke. The joke was that pistol is just as accurate as a regular 10-meter pistol — or so says Robert Beeman. Well, if you can do that with a barrel, I think a slight bend won’t hurt. But I’ll test it, of course.
