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.

    It works like the screw they used to have under a cap in the reverse ends of loading rods of old muzzle loaders to pull a charge and wadding. As I live in dread of a blocked barrel, I'll have to get one. :)

    Whats wrong with using a cleaning rod to move a stuck pellet?, its the way its been done for years and any serious shooter would have a cleaning rod. Plus i really wouldn't want to risk putting anything with a bit on it near a barrel bore, it doesn't take much to damage a barrel crown or the end of the bore enough to affect accuracy especially on something as precision as a modern pcp rifle.

    If you don't have a cleaning kit you really should get one and use it regularly - cheap and will keep your rifle in tip top condition, and if you ever get a stuck pellet/bullet its easily sorted.

    Cleaning rods are ok for break barrels etc but for a PCP or under leaver etc you need to get the barrel off really to push it through.

    As for the possibility of damaging the crown or anything else you should be ok as long as you are careful and once its in the bore then there is little chance of damage.

    Its a simple enough system.
    But ive never had a problem with stuck pellets so i prob wont bother buying one lol

    ???? Why would a PCP or an under lever be a problem? PCP i take the bolt or mag out, and cleaning rod works on under lever's too, even tap loaders.

    You have to remove the barrel to get the rod through.

    Or you can push it backwards and prob tear the breach seal.

    Not cheap at £30 but if it works fair enough but i suppose it depends on how tight the pellet(s) are jammed in there as lead being a relatively soft material the screw may not hold when you try to extract it.I'm a bit puzzled how someone can manage to get about 10 pellets jammed up the barrel,surely if you accidentally/inadvertently double load your gun and on firing it nothing comes out of the barrel shoving another 7 or 8 pellets up there isn't going cure it o why do it,your common sense should tell anyone that.I does happen though i've seen it on a couple of occasions with customers guns at my local RFD.:facepalm:

    Totally agree.

    By using it to push pellets backwards or something maybe instead of cleaning?

    ROTFLMFAO Titch, do you know where breach seals are on an air rifle?

    For FUN do you have the Air Arm's instructions handy for how to remove stuck pellets from the barrel of their old springer sidelevers? You might want to look it up for reference.

    Air weapons licencing in Britain - maybe, but there DEFINITELY should be an IQ test!

    I would imagine it's possible to damage a breech seal on a pcp where the seal is situated in the breech housing rather than on the bolt probe by trying to remove a pellet(s) by pushing it/them backwards and hence past the breech seal.Not a problem with tap loaders as you just remove the tap and under levers with a sliding breech as the seal either sits in the end of the breech housing or around the outside of the breech end of the barrel.But where it sits immediately behind the barrel in the breech housing as on the AA s400/s500 for example that's possibly a different matter.

    Sorry yeah gun specific depending you may not touch a breach seal or any other seal.

    But some you defo will :p

    As you mention AA how about O ring 57 or 58 on a AA S410? Those little internal O rings that could be shreded by the skirt of a pellet being pushed backwards?

    And yes with a Tap loader you could remove the Tap etc but that still requires some sort of dissasembley.

    At least with this tool you could do it without any technical knowledge and simply which will appeal to many.

    Allthough I still have never worked out how people get 3 pellets down a barrel without noticing.....

    Good idea but a tad too dear for my liking. I remember the gunsmith at DS showing me that someone somehow had 35 plus pellets stuck in a airwolf barrel !.
    Now with photos, Enjoy. PS its not my fingers in the photos ! :D
