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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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'm guessing the little springs and ball bearings go in the two holes in the central column (bearings at the top), with the big spring underneath the rotating bit, with the black handle/knob bit as a washer under the bolt?

    Just guessing, don't be too harsh if I'm wrong ;)

    Thanks for posting the "exploded" photo, it means when I take mine apart I'll be able to count how many pieces I've dropped on the floor and need to find again :facepalm: :D

    Be well :thumb:

    I am surprised the block hasn’t been stripped as well....you only got it a few hours ago :roflmao:

    Interesting to see how the mags are getting more complicated......are they any better? Should be smoother, right?

    Yes mate they are a lot smoother but on mine the spring tension was way to high :facepalm: but at least i didn't have to do any sanding, when you take the spring out the drum spins freely and feels very slick :thumb:

    Have you tried experimenting as to how little tension can be out into the spring but still allowing normal function? ...:confused:

    My thinking being that the less tension on the spring the less chance there is of any pellet deformation/damage ...

    ... Obviously there will be a point where the spring won't over come the friction of the pellets against the case but a bit above that would be optimum wouldn't it? :confused:

    Be well :thumb:

    I was looking at this lonely O-Ring on the desk thinking "I'm sure that wasn't there before" :facepalm: ...

    Behind the nut, between it and the main case? (as anti-unscrew device?) ? :confused:

    ETA:

    Yeah it is (just unscrewed another and looked, and put them both back together successfully )

    TIL how to strip and reassemble Dreamline mags :D :D :D

    Thanks @Jeffsky ;)

    Be well :thumb:

    i took jeffskys advice and did this on mine,there was moulded casting tails still attached to the drum which was wearing into the casing,no wonder it need 4 turns of tension to move it,removed tails with a blade and wet and dried the the casing.
    now runs smooth with 1 turn tension and no crushed pellets

    I put about a turn and a quarter on my mags and they seem to work great (if there's an issue I can always take them apart and add/remove tension as required now thanks to @Jeffsky 's help/guidance)

    Big up for the "Bromley-Chop-Shop" :up: :up: :up:

    Oh a handy tip, always open the turn clamp clockwise, when removing the cover and when putting it back on, there will be no chance of accidentally unscrewing the bolt then.
    You can just imagine the scenario, there you are out in the wilds, ready to start some shooting, turn the clip to the left and 'ping!', bits flying everywhere.....

    I can do that at home no trouble at all with equally disastrous results :facepalm: :D :D :D

    My guess would be that the O-Ring is there to alleviate that possibility, but being aware of it would probably make it less likely to happen (well spotted @Chocki )
