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.

    Can a full length cylinder be placed onto a carbine FSB? And how many additional shots would you expect to get?

    cheers

    YES it can, which is why a bought an FSB in the first place. I have two, the .177 was 75 shots as standard now 175 shots and the .22 does more about 200 I havent checked exactly. I am using the A & M full length cylinders which fit perfectly I would not bother with a HW full length cylinder they weigh a ton.:)

    I didn't realise you can get 75 shots from a carbine, I thought it was 50 at best, are those shots from 200 - 100bar?
    My reason for the question was that I've been offered a cylinder which is full length so it was purely a spare and I wasn't sure if it would fit with it being the full length on a carbine.

    hi yes its from a 200bar fill the a&m custom cylinders are half the weight and loads more shots not sure how many more but the main selling point is the weight reduction, sorry to go off on one but a lot of great guns are overlooked because of low shot counts my ultra se only has 35 shots but a great lightweight hunting rifle and very pointable but gets overlooked because of shot count I could get it regged and tuned for more shots but that would be just a bi product from tuning a great gun.:)

    No I do agree Skokie that unless your perm is riddled with rabbits 1 mag would probably do you for a hunt... With out the odd plink that is, shot count hasn't been a factor in my hw100 purchase, I've done it because IMO it's one of the best PCP's for the money out there.

    Or rats!
    I've used up 3 1/2 mags (.22) on a night and still got air left from one fill to carry on if i wanted to. We just leave an air bottle in the car in case we ever need to refill.

    At the club I go to I shoot 5 magzines from my HW100 carbine, then due to limited time I just switch to my TX200 for the rest of the evening. Sometimes have a go with my Webley Tempest if I want a change.

    The weight reduction and ballace of rifle with the cylinders make it feel like a differect gun. 100% worth it. You pay maybe 60 for the a and m once.you sell your old one.
    as for the hw100 they are regulated lol

    It's quite a bit louder than the near silent modded carbine, because I don't have a great need for suppression I went for the FSB, I think it's I nicer looking package, I'll get a mod for it if I need one in the future
