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.

    youll notice it more on a .177 than a .22 its basically where as you fire the front of the rifle flicks up slightly hence the reason why follow through is important on a springer,some people add a muzzle weight or silencer to counter act this but its important to get the balance right other wise the rifle will be to heavy on the front,
    a slight tune to speed up and smooth the fireing cycle out will help loads,my .22 theres hardly any muzzle flip at all but thats had a full tune and i ended up fitting a mwss200 delrin silencer which is a lot lighter than most,in turn bringing the weight back towards the shoulder and balancing the rifle out and making it a lot more pointable,
    my old .177 i had a slightly heavier silencer to counteract the muzzleflip but the fireing cycle on that rifle was fast so the little muzzle flip it did produce was never anything to worry about as the pellet had allready left the barrel
    its nothing to worry about and youll soon get the hang of it,springers just require a different shooting technique but with a little practice there (in my opinion) a lot more satisfying to shoot,even in standard form and youve chose a cracking rifle there :up:

    In all seriousness, you'll have a great rifle there. Every HW springer I've ever used has been good, and some have been great. They're easily customisable if you're into that sort of thing, and very easy to tune / fettle. Just be careful if you decide on tuning it - it becomes an obsession!

    Thank you for this reassurance. :up: Haven't had the courage to touch mine even though I have been tempted in the past.

    Something to do during those long winter nights I think!
