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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

Advice Huub Shroud Ultra Multishot .177

    Have fitted the adaptor onto the barrel at breech end. Tightened the grub screws. Magazine catch slides forwards and back. All okay.
    Wiped barrel down with oily rag. All okay.
    Screwed the threaded vented/back flow bush onto the end of the barrel. All okay.
    Now this is when the problem starts.
    Now I am supposed to slide the shroud over the vented/back flow bush, all the way to the adaptor.
    Problem is it goes over about an inch then is stuck solid. :eek:
    It won't move.
    In the end I had to unscrew the rifle and barrel from the vented/back flow bush, which was still in the shroud:mad:
    In the end I had to use one of my seat box attachments in the vice, and then screw the vented/back flow onto it, then using brute force pull it off.
    Any ideas on how to fit this shroud over the vented/back flow please.
    Obviously don't want to use force ie nylon mallet to get the shroud over the threaded vented/back flow. Has anyone had same problems whilst fixing a Huub Shroud.

    Try a bit of 3in1 on the back flow o-ring to make it slide a bit easier:)

    He had my gun since 13th Feb. Sent it off for a Huma Reg and Huub shroud to be fitted and a spare magazine. Gun came back yesterday, shroud came today. The vented/back flow bush is the same size as the shroud. But as long as it is screwed into the barrel and central with that, can't see it being a problem. Hopefully. Need to get out shooting with it.

    Haven't got the time for that need it for shooting. Landowner getting anxious as I haven't been for nearly six weeks. Rather cock up a £95 shroud, than lose my permission.

    No gun was brand new, put a tin of pellets through it in back garden before I sent it off.

    if it were me i would buy a silencer to use until you can speak to xtx to get the shroud sorted
    not worth knackering a 95 quid shroud
    just my opinion;)

    I had the same problem when I fitted mine. I found a little lubricant on the o-ring and twisting the shroud as if screwing it onto a thread did the trick. I think the o-ring is just a little tight as its a new one. I've gad to take my shroud off a few times and was much easier putting back on once the o-ring had settled to suit the diameter of the shroud.
