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.

    After reading the thread started by @hw80guyl I've decided I may go a different route with the 80 I'm playing with at the moment and hoping I can get some input......

    So far I've decided to cut some big slits in the cylinder with a angle grinder, sleeve the transfer port to 0.5mm, fit a lead weight in the piston while using a anal bead as a top hat finally followed buy a spring from the venerable B2 for absolute perfection.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to make it even betterer?

    I have lots of ideas, but I'm afraid they're a trade secret so unfortunately I can't tell you.. :p

    Oh go on then, forget that moly mallarky.
    Use butter as a lubricant. I find "I can't Believe it's not Butter" works best.

    That's cuz it's not butter, see.

    But shh, the guvmint doesn't want you to know that... ;)

    Yes and I'm sorry to say that you have minimal chance of understanding my advanced engineering skills that I've learned over decades of precision craftsmanship.

    I have no clue about shooting or even how an air rifle works other than by magic, so bow down to your superior knowledge. I am a brain surgeon though, so if you ever want a frontal lobotomy doing I've just bought a new set of wood bits from Aldi that go nicely in my grandfather's old hand drill :up:

    You might want to consider removing the trigger and re install it the wrong way around as I've found over decades of trial and error that it greatly improves the feel of the trigger.

    I'll put some pics up later so the idiots can understand :D

    I’d ask your Mrs permission before you use your anal bead as a top hat mate she might not want it back after being covered in LT2 paste

    Butter makes an excellent lubricant. Have you seen the film "Last Tango in Paris"?:D

    I’ve heard piston seals made out of wet toilet paper which has dried hard works really well, sorry I don’t know if this trade secret had been mentioned I was listening to my government music while watching bellenders

    Squirting 5cc of diesel into the cylinder before each shot is the cherry on top with airgun tuning.
