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.

    Evening all,

    I'm looking to shorten the shroud on the huntsman classic. It is not that effective and overall gun looks strange with the silencer on - too long.
    There are some baffles inside so I was wondering how to get them out:/
    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks

    unscrew the threaded end cap that the silencer fits (which sometimes need a little heat) and they should slide out

    You will find no baffles inside. And the shroud is only about 1" longer thsn barrel

    Shortened shroud will give you no effect at all.

    If you looking to make it more effective, get an airranger with huggett shroud on.

    Vitalich: Shroud is much longer than a barrel - side by side they are about 2 inches different. Huggett is too expensive I just want to short shroud and silencer at the end. I will try hot air gun tomorrow:)

    Cheers guys!

    One more question: have you seen a strip down guide for huntsman?

    Thanks Guys:) I will cal Milbro tomorrow and will ask for availability. I would probably prefer cut down + decent silencer but looking at the classics with huggett shrouds makes me want one big time! There is no doubt that they look great but are they really effective?

    I would give BAR a call as it may be easier to deal with them as a distributor rather than the manufacturer

    ref huggett shrouds - well how quiet do you want ? the loudest things will be the noise of the action ( which will appear deafening) and the pellet strike

    I'm not that fussy but for that sort of Money I would expect them to be both: effective and nice to look at. I have seen somewhere few days ago a review of the small huggett silencer and in general people where not that impressed. I was dealing with Milbro in the past and they were OK - it was to do with shroud for r10 which they don't advertise really but it is available. Would it be a problem to fit shroud made for airwolf? I have seen one second hand today? Also what is difference between silencers made for airwolf and ones made for mk4 or huntsman. Seems like BAR have some airstream's in stock but there are different types? Sorry for all the questions Lads and thanks for help:)

    I shortened my Huntsman when I had one.

    But the arrangement left a lot to be desired the barrel has a thinner section machined from the centre section, with two high flats either side that the baffle supports sit on, which have O rings IIRC this makes it slightly flexible.

    What happens if you don't achieve some clearance around the Figure clamp after shortening the shroud, is you can get poi changes throughout the charge as mine did.

    I ended up cutting a Daystate mk3 shroud down to make my own solid supports.

    But with hindsight what the best arrangement on a huntman would be inmo is to rebarrel it with a 16mm diameter screw cut barrel, someone did one somewhere Im sure it was on here, looked loads better.

    Fit a Hw silencer or something then and jobs a good one no poi changes and will be as quiet as you will ever need, or the hugget set up would be cool.

    yes think that's what I would prefer a thicker barrel to the shroud
