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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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 im new on here i have got a smk qb78 deluxe, which i think is great:). but needs a little bit more power. is there any way i can get the power up to nearer 12 as i dont really know what it is on now, but it does seem to run out of puff at 25 yards. I like to use it for hunting, out to 35 yards.
    any help would be well appreciated.:up:
    thanks bazz
    ps. which pellets would put the power up a bit, (its a 22)

    Hi and welcome you can buy a tuning kit for that gun but your hunting range with that gun even when tuned will be around 20 yards which will be fine for rats if you want to shoot rabbits out to longer distances you will really need a springer or a pcp

    I dissagree Jamjon. There are people on our local forum with qb78s tuned to 18+ft/lbs and one member uses his out to 50m on rabbits. They just need a bit of work to up the power

    thats above the legal limit for this country and the tuning kits available will not take it up to be powerfull enough for shooting above 25 yards maximum it can be tuned into a nice gun but it's best used for close range work

    Fair enough. If its close to 12fpe though, say 11.5 it will do the bunnies at 40 yards but you have got to be both a damn good shot and be good at range finding, probably not worth the effort :D

    yep the gun has the easy task of putting a pellet down.
    however it has to be able to shoot straight.

    90% of shooting is from the guybehind the trigger.

    the best way to think about it is can i match the gun, not can the gun match me.

    the way that phrase works is you get a good rifle that you wont be able to beat and you wil get better and better.

    thanks a1 the other reason for not tuning those guns to close to the limit is because of the inconsistancy of c02 with the weather you need to leave plenty of room for variation or if we get a change in the climate you can be over the limit

    thanks for all tha replies boys! i just got rid of a BSA super 10. it needed £40 service, new magazine and i got fed up of going to the shop to fill it up, lol. and just sold a BSA meteor MK7 22.(very jumpy) the 177 super 10 was dropping rabbits at 45 yrds. my SMK i got now is dropping rabbits at 25 yrds. Really Happy with it :up: chuck 2 cylinders in your pocket, hand full of pellets, and mooch round the farm sheds :D (not very good in the field though, lack of power)ill leave it as it is at the minute and get my self another springer.
