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.

    Hi all

    Just a quick question as to whether i should tinker with my 97k ?

    Its shooting nice and smooth and over the chrono i bought it looks to be around 11.1 ft lbs using H&N FTT. There could be a slight kick to recoil but as i have not shot too many springers for a few years im not sure if a fettle would be good. Just maybe a little polish up if you know what i mean ?

    Ive not taken the action apart to see what it looks like inside as it shoots very well already.

    After using the pull through to clean up i got fairly good results

    First string was

    446 ( first shot after cleaning )
    665
    663
    666
    666
    669

    I thought that looked a bit close so did another string

    662
    663
    674
    665
    661
    667
    660
    663
    656
    659

    Although there is the odd shot i think it looks fairly consistent

    Also the accuracy came back after around 3 shots which was good :)

    Any thoughts ... leave it as is ? or get my hands dirty ? :cool:

    Thanks

    Get ya hands dirty, photograph it and pop it up so I know what to do when I get my 97 kth hehe :D
    Joking aside if you happy with how it shoots then leave be.
    If your comfortable taking it apart and giving it the TLC polish then go for it there are some great tutorials about.

    If your gonna give it a fettle then I would suggest you fit a "Tinbum/Tbt tuning kit" it's a properly fitting spring guide and top hat for £20, I just fitted one to my 95 this weekend and to say it's a completely different rifle is an understatement !!!

    Its gone from an ill manor'd, headache inducing piece of Censored to the sweetest shooting springer I've ever handled !!!
