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.

    Hi All,

    Does anybody know of anyone in the south west who is about to fit a HumaAir Regulator to my BSA ULTRA XL? Im not competent enough to do it myself. I have been recommended Air Rifle Doctor and Rat Works but ideally would like to drop it off in person some where relatively local rather then to send it off.

    Also im interested in what John Bowkett services are avalible? I can only find the fan page on facebook but cant seem to get through to the website. Is it just tuning etc or custom synthetic stocks as well?

    Many Thanks in Advance

    S

    If you are thinking Ratworks I would speak to Phil at Ratworks before buying a Huma reg, he doesn't like them and if you supply the reg it won't be covered by his life time warranty.

    My only advice is to be careful what you spend v’s what you want to achieve.

    Being a Ultra XL its more of a budget PCP and you won’t get any of what you’ve forked out on it back should you move it on.

    It will be an in tube reg for the Ultra XL, and I would look at Tench or Lane.

    If you want to have it done professionally then Ratworks would be my choice, £200 and he’ll fit his reg and rip through the whole gun!

    If it were me though, I’d move the XL on and put the £200 you would’ve spent on to it towards something that can already do what you want it to do.

    That's a shame, as i have already purchased the regulator. Never mind ill keep hold of it and get some use out of it. I've had a go on a friend's HW100 and that feels good and shoots smooth. I might look into that for the future.

    I’ve got a couple of HW100’s here and they are immense rifles.

    Go the other way - if your Ultra is accurate, make it so it outshoots the 100 :D :D It will annoy the HW100 owner :D

    Ta for the thought; I don't touch these guns though in terms of regging as I'd echo Mikey's sentiment that it's not really a cost effective / worthwhile mod.

    In addition, unlike the original Ultra / Scorpion SEs there are (to the best of my knowledge) no off-the-shelf bits available to carry out the conversion properly; so getting it right would likely be extremely time consuming and expensive.

    @Sam_G88 - FWIW best advice I can give is to flog the reg on (and swallow the modest loss), and continue using the rifle until you can afford to upgrade to something better. Regging what you've got isn't really going to achieve much but will likely burn a big hole in your pocket that you'll not recoup upon selling the gun.

    Cheers @cloverleaf and Thanks chaps for all the advice.

    Definitely was worth while joining this forum. If only I had done so prior to purchasing these bits. However Such Is life.

    Don't be so hasty condemning the reg.
    The Ultra XL looks to be based on a Gamo platform.
    Fitting shouldn't be beyond anyone with a degree of competence.
    I'd guess fitting is basically as this guide and shouldn't be beyond anyone with reasonable skills with basic tools.
    Huma are no mugs.

    As far as I can see, all that is needed is a drilling out of the TP. No other parts are needed as long as you've ordered for the correct barrel length, calibre and power level.
